    A response from Dip-pack would be much welcomed, unfortunately thus far nonexistent. Have not responded to me, the attorney or this forum. Why is it the communication was satisfactory throughout the process until crate damaged and zebra rug missing? It is not about mode of transportation...

    Could not have said it better myself and exactly the points I have been trying to make. For those who feel the ownous is on the consumer, then conduct business with Dip-pack and expect to be disappointed and perhaps even missing prised trophies. Again, listen carefully.

    Blaming the victim rarely is the solution. When transporting cargo, it is the responsibility of the shipping company until reaching final destination.
