I wish more sellers would be willing to pallet/crate. It would certainly save on the shipping.
Shipping Freight can save about $100-150
But please be aware that Freight companies do have a down side....
Freight companies make it almost impossible to get your insurance claim through.
I have tried on a couple occasions while shipping arcade cabinets (non Pinball)
that Freight companies send you through so many hoops only to send you right back to the beginning.
No body helps you, they just keep routing you through the channels round and round.
Things to consider that I have learned... NAVL does pay off on insurance.
So keep that in mind if your shipping a very expensive game. Sometimes shipping NAVL is a better way to go, (if your shipping a Medieval Madness or something rare and expensive)
But... insurance through NAVL only covers $1500 in damage. If you want more coverage it costs Nearly $40 to cover items above $1500 and I was never told the limits of the coverage that I would receive for the extra $40. I was just trying to Insure for $2500 and it was going to cost $40 extra.
I was told by Michelle at NAVL that if you live in large cities or have shipping to a commercial location then the price can be lower. In my case the only place I could receive shipment was at my residence.
I would like to ship Freight and just hoped members here could chime in and share their shipping methods.
Heres the right way to ship Freight IMO...........
