if you paid to have them packed "professionally" then I would be going after whoever packed them...

NON-Legal answer:

Who's the shipper? Who paid for the shipping and were the contents of the crates insured? If your invoice from the engine seller includes the packing, crating, insurance, and shipping, then you have a reason to have further conversation. If you paid the transport company directly, then it could get dicey.

The value of further conversation really depends upon the extent of damage and estimated cost to repair.

depends on how much you insured the motors for, they will stand behind it if the damage is less than insured amount. Had it happen last year on a drive and once on a tranny, both times the shipper took care of it no problems because they were insured.

I had 2 blowers shipped and paid $300.00 for packing and shipping. When they arrived the flame arrestors where smashed and one of the blower noses were sticking out of the box. UPS denied the claim as they were packed in linen boxes with peanuts and the idiot I bought them from refused to pay.

Last time I shipped an entire engine the carrier I use for business (shipments going out everyday) claimed they would only ensure new engines....not rebuilds, etc. So, I shipped and insured mine as new engines. They made the round trip fine but I made sure they were insured properly before they left the dock........if yours were insured properly the shipper should be able to file a claim with the LTL that was responsible for them.

hopefully you rejected the shipment or documented the damage and had the trucker sign it or you will be out of luck

In my business chit is always shipped in. If the carrier has signed off that all was good when they made the pick up and there is damage when it arrives at my door the carrier is on the hook for the damage. If they feel the material was not properly packaged that is their problem, or between them and the shipper, for sure not mine. Accepted with damage noted on the delivery papers, or refused due to obvious damages, the carriers problem, period. With material shipped on a company truck it is seldom an issue to get it made right, with a common carrier it can be a nightmare. I always refuse damaged goods on a common carrier, pizzes the driver off, but wtf, I'm not paying for broke chit, nor am I spending my time trying to straighten out their fock ups.
