That sucks man, I hope they make it right.
Overall it looks fixable. Put the insurance money to good work and talk to duckhunter, he's working on getting ready to make full C/F fairings.
What branch you in?

That stinks-the worst part will be the hassle of dealing with the people on the phone that belong at the help desk of Fisher Price answering calls for kids 8 and under!! In their language. But hey its just parts itll get fixed-straighten her up get the throttle functioning safely and go for a ride! We have snow on the ground, youre in Hawaii!! I think I see a place for a small HRC sticker on the tailsection.

I cannot imagine, in this day and age of online capabilities, that they would not make it right. Or as Roger on family-guy famously said "you are going to have what I refer to as a "Yelp disaster"

Unfortunately, if this is a military move and you didn't buy supplemental insurance, you may not be very happy. They broke my couch one move. I mean how do you break the back OFF of a couch.

The paid no damages. The idiots came out and said I should have bought more insurance. They said they use the lowest bidder and they can't afford to pay claims when the movers break shit.

I never did another contract move. That was actually my first military move. I did them all myself afterwards. And don't recall breaking anything.
