It's easier to go after the shipper since when you signed the bill of lading you only agreed that the crates looked undamaged when they arrived. The carrier will not let you open them to inspect the freight until you sign.

I usually submit a retail bill and get reimbursed enough to replace the product. YOU MUST have pictures of the damage and have the damage noted by the driver upon delivery on the bill of laden. If you do not do this........you are screwed no matter what. I do so much shipping, my local sales rep. will usually step in and help out.
you are screwed no matter what.

Just from the limited info I can gather here, if the crates didn't have a scratch on them, it wasn't the carriers fault. Trust me if a carrier usually tears up something you will know it, Forklift forks run through crates, crates smashed, and so on.

It appears to me the damage was due to poor packing????

However I got to be honest with you, those look like pretty expensive motors, I would have never sent them motor freight.

Baja i have used FED EX National for transmissions,drives,motors, and theve done an awesome job ...i have in the past sent 598s with 1471s on a pallet with 2 ratchet straps and shrink wrapped with no problem ... when i was told have to be crated,have to be packaged,have to be set in crates and bolted,have to weld and refab engine cradles for the journey and pay the bill ...i would think i had not a worry in the world

Yes, I had damage to an engine. I bought an engine from someone. They had their shop crate and pack the engine in a mercury engine crate. The engine was shipped FedEx. Arrived at my mechanics. We opened the crate and the engine was completely off the mounts. The front of the engine was damaged. I sent pictures and called the seller to tell them about the problem. They said they would take care of. The quote for the damage was $2200. I contacted the seller who contacted Fedex. Fedex would only cover 50 cents on the pound since the seller didn't insure the engine. So, I got about $500. I contacted Fedex. They said they couldn't do anything else for me since the paper work was in the seller's name. They said contact the seller. I tried to contact the seller many times. He would not answer my call or emails. I looked into a small claims suit. The only issue was the seller was in another state and would cost to much money to persue.

I shipped a package to a customer with UPS, insured it for $10,000.00. The package was busted open and some parts were missing (everything was double boxed). UPS did an investigation then told me it was not their problem, I had to deal with their insurance company. The insurance refused to pay. I took UPS to small claims only for what was missing ($7,500.00), I won they case, UPS appealed, and the case went to superior court. The judge not only gave me what I won but another $2,000.00 punitive because of their aditute and wasting the courts time.
