I've had two bad experiences with "impact damage".
First was 10 years ago when I sent my camera to El Segundo for a "free" cleaning.
Dust on the outside does not impact the camera.
At that time there were many others of us that were asked to pay
so I think it was a management scam.
I had to resend the camera to Melville because they messed up all the adjustments in California.
It came back from New York better than new (no charge).

Second is when I sent my 70-200 in for adjustment.
There was so much impact from shipping that the filter and end element were broken.
When I put in a claim against the insurance I paid extra for,
USPS said the camera was sent for repair therefore it must have been broken before hand and refused payment.
I would never send anybody broken glass (even if I hated them).
