You can sue them. If someone damages your property negligently or carelessly--as these people appear to have, based on what you write--you can sue them for the damage they did. If the company is an LLC or corporation, you sue the company; if a sole proprietorship, sue the owner personally. If the cost to repair the damage is less than the small claims limit, suing in small claims, as your own attorney or "pro se," is a cost-effective and fast option.
