I'm sure many of you have been victim to freight damage when ordering equipment for your shop. We had a customer book their own freight because they didn't want to use our preferred carrier. They wanted to save a couple bucks on freight and used some cheapo trucking company to deliver a 3,000 pound machine.
.......well this is what showed up on their dock.





It should have looked like this...............

What the hell did they do? Drop it off a building? That is a pretty heavy bender to get demolished in shipping.

Wow! That takes the cake. When I worked at Dart we had a block come back due to freight damage. There was a hole through the box and when we opened it there was hole punched through the side of the iron block. Seems someone had speared it with a forklift.

All too common.

I work in damage prevention, I deal with this stuff on a bigger scale everyday.

Nothing will stop a forklift driver that is determined to punch a hole in your new widget, especially if we are taking LTL.

we had UPS put a forklift fork, straight through the front of one of our machines. there was a hole straight through the box, packaging material & foam & there was hydrolic fluid ALL over the box.

they come back to us & say "we NEVER use a forklift". they came out to inspect it & after about 2 seconds of looking @ it left & paid the claim.
