Yes, you're right Colin! Ours is an empty shell and from what i understand the new floor isn't fully attached. So I dare say they looked in there. The PO said it was all good and I'm assuming it still is. Regardless, she'll be on her way home soon!

She's hooked on! Dented, scratched, broken windows, jimmied door...quite the anti-climax. Nonetheless, we have her and the insurance will cover damages. Click image for larger version

Oh i'm so sorry I know how you are feeling we were devastated, I cried when I saw mine. You wait so long and are so excited it's just a real downer. Insurance will fix it but if your getting the parts in from the US I wouldn't recommend the company we have used.

Hi Amy! I have been wondering what happened and finally got time to check in on you! This is such a huge milestone in your life! What a great thing. Sorry to hear of the damage. Seems to be common in shipping these. Glad you have insurance! Hope you keep us informed of your adventures. I have a FB page for my 65 Globetrotter restore on facebook. Let's connect! https://www.facebook.com/GlamperGirl?ref=bookmarks

Thank you girls! It certainly was a huge fall from the excitement Id been feeling. It was just shoved in the container and not even secured. They've made a real mess of it. Waiting to hear tmrw what the next step is. Here's some pics, turn away now if you're as sensitive as me...I threw in one of me smiling for good measure and one at the loading end. What the actual f%#* were they thinking when they convinced me this was a good idea??

There are some "professional" repairs they should cover.

You know, it can all be fixed.

We had always heard and read that break-ins are near-inevitable, shipping overseas.

Look at the upside, what you've got and what you're going to do with it. It's just the beginning of your great adventure.

I'm happy for you, and will look forward to your future posts.


Maggie

They just put it into the container shell and let it bounce around in there???? Somebody should be horse whipped. So sad to hear about it.

No wheel chocks, no tie downs, not even any bubble wrap? That's horrible, I just ordered a toaster ( no really a real toaster) from Macy's a stainless w/red front 4 slice from Cuisinart. They just put the toasters box in another box that was way to big and it rattled around during shipping. If that angered me I can only image your disappointment. Yes it can be fixed but at least secure the item.

Amy,
i really feel for you, you must be heartbroken, i must have been very lucky, both my trailers arrived as good as they left. the shipping company should be ashamed, who did you buy from in the US ? who were the agents and shippers ? mine both came with K-line and were on the roll-on roll-off ship which are mainly used for vehicles. i hope you manage to get her straightened up again.
