It’s very disappointing. It looks as though, although it was probably well packed, it wasn’t really secured to the pallet with plenty of strong tape. Frustrating for you having to sort it all out.

None of us here are in full possession of the details.... But I would say that the shipper was pretty negligent. Don't care there was a pallet involved. Fragile tape begs 'drop me'. The grinder should have been double boxed and packed with polystyrene 'chips' due to its mass.

 

...And I am almost scared to ask....was the grinder alone or with the machine too? hope its internals are ok if it was bound with the plastic 'scarf' to the grinder.

 

I know this is no justification for the handling by the couriers, but there have been plenty of warnings about such things here...your experience is graphic. and I hope you can resolve the situation through the carrier/seller. Good luck!

You will be lucky to get an insurance claim based on the way it was packed! That is just a terrible job of packing, insurance will want a complete set of photos

Just going to take it on the chin, nothing I can do right now, and at 44 pound for a hopper just unhappy, but yes why it wasn't boxed I agree, lesson learned. I think its come off the pallet. Move on and get some coffee pointers from you good people.

feel for you, but dont just take it on your chin...If insurer says inadequately packed as CC intimates they will, the loss should be be bourne by the packer? at least in my mind. Though I really believe the courier should take it on the chin. Their duty of care these days seems to be, get it from A to B and it can be any shape we deem ok when it gets to B. If they said that in their sales material, they would stop trading.

at the end of the day, it has been dropped. No amount of packaging can protect against that. Pursue your claim on the basis of negligence

Looking at the pic, the grinder has a boot-print on it - as in it's been kicked?

Yes I thought it was a wheel mark - maybe a forklift backed into it.
