Probably a good time for a shameless plug. I sell pinball insurance for $65 up to $9000 per machine. It's nearly impossible to collect claim money from carriers due to damaged freight. They almost always find loopholes. My insurance is different, and no, you don't have to ship with me to be insured. The process is quick and easy. PM me to get covered.
To the OP, I'm very sorry this happened.
