I get where you're coming from, but even if the shipper wins, that costs everyone who uses them, because those costs are passed along, I imagine.Perhaps, most likely not. EBay would make the seller reimburse the buyer. Then the seller would have to try to get the shipper to pay for damages.
I know 2 wrongs don't make a right but by breaking the headstock off and filing a claim to get reimbursed gets the fake guitar off the market.
I've had to reimburse money back on several items, not because of our packing methods but I'm certain to shady buyers.
So let's say you have a item that you broke and you find one exactly like yours on Ebay. You simply switch out items and file a claim saying that the item you bought was broke when you opened the box.
It's a theory that I have that I've seen done to us a few times. I tried fighting one case for a dumb 30.00 cookie jar that I knew the seller either dropped it while unpacking it or she broke hers and swapped it out with mine. Either way EBay will almost always side with the buyer in these cases.
