When I've recieved damaged goods from ebay (ok, it wasn't $2k,
but...), I've negotiated with the seller that they pay the shipping
expenses and sometimes a little more. Of course, for what I'm buying
its like $10 for the unit and $75 to ship it being more typical than
$2k for the goods and whatever for shipping.
