A MODERN SVT should require NOTHING to be replaced except a fuse or two, the changeover takes a few seconds longer than to remove and replace the chassis in the cabinet, and anyone charging $300 for that ought to be convicted of grand larceny.
What are they DOING to be charging $300?
As for the damaged unit.... that's insane..... but actually, proper packaging quite possibly COULD have helped out a lot. Depends on just how that was done.
I've seen an SVT that fell out of the trailer at 80 km/hr and had less damage
