NEW Backhoe Delivered Damaged - PICS

Bought this 2005 backhoe on Monday and hired a my local CASE dealer to haul it as they have a fleet of Kenworths and lowboys, It was delivered this past Wednesday, quickly and on time.

It came from near Philly PA up the PA Turnpike to my building, its about a 1.75 hour trip.

Long story short the window blew open (I assume) and crashed into the other big window, destroying them. The seals and door hardware was lost on the turnpike, driver says he didn't know this happened until he arrived to unload the machine. (Says the salesman)

I didnt meet the driver, they just dropped it off, but this time, it was left on the side of the road, not up my short dirt driveway as they have done in the past and as I instructed to do so. (you can see the driveway in the picture)

I called the company, and the salesman told me "there was nothing they could do" and that "these things happen"

I got loud very quickly then he told me to "get a parts estimate and call him Monday"

Its about $800 in parts, what does everyone think???

Please chime in, who should pay for the damage?
