Quoted from Meegis:

Ouch. I find when some people ship, they forget that the game is more fragile than the Industrial machinery it costs to be, while also still an art piece to the new owner. Even projects.
It really isn't that hard to wrap a game well, and prep it for transport.
Makes me sad.

I’m a little OCD when it comes to my machines and shipping.
I received a machine that I paid extra to have prepped by a tech. Received it with half a shipping blanket and the rest with cling wrap For protection. The legs were also attached to the art side of the cabinet and had worn thru the wrap and wore into the artwork! Not the end of the world but totally unnecessary and disappointing. When I pointed it out he said that’s how I always do it. He didn’t understand why I was upset.
My bad, I assumed a tech would know better! Lesson learned! Especially when it’s a pricey game!
Shipping a game is definitely a risky process on so many different
Levels. Ask lots of questions, speak up and never assume! It’s your money!!

Quoted from Tranquilize:

That's the good news: seller paletted like an absolute pro. Moving blankets and wrap. I'm enjoying the game otherwise. If I ever ship again, I'll be more diligent. Thanks for the insight guys.

Yes of course a few issues you don't expect is normal but this case sounds worse than that. You don't miss or forget to take photos of an obviously damaged area like that. This is poor communication on the seller's end from what you've said and not cool. I hope you get it resolved without having to just take a bath on the repairs. There is nothing wrong with selling a beat up pin, just be open and honest with what you are selling, right?

New Pinball Virtual Machine was bought to see build quality opened and never used. Time to sell need the space.
You will be paying what I paid to bring it over from overseas. This is the cream of the crop in Virtual Pinball.

Based in VANCOUVER, BC We are willing to pallet wrap and ship at buyers expense. We have a shipper we have been using for 15 years.
Here is the link if anyone interested.

Might be willing to trade for a Data East or Sega Pinball, tell me what you got.

I’m selling my ‘92 Gottlieb Cue Ball Wizard.

Message me for pics and details.

When shipping a pin with a gun instead of a shooter rod, have the gun taken off unless you want it snapped off by shipping donkeys

Friend of mine is opening a new arcade here in town. Global news has a story on it tonight if anyone's interested.

#16560 27 days ago

I've got a players condition Cyclone for 3k.

Has mylar lifting in some places but plays well (I think). Brand new LED score displays. New set of plastics and rubbers (not installed).

Wow I didn’t see that coming, great news for sure! I haven’t heard a thing until now, and I own a retail shop a couple blocks away. I had three games in my shop for about a year until COVID. I wonder how he’s getting around the restrictions? Wish him all the best, I will help spread the word.

#16565 27 days ago

He will have to wait a bit, but hopefully things will open up soon. A good time to do reno's and get the place up and running it took us 6 months to open our arcade, so if he times it right should be able to operate.

He was saying august earlier this week but might be June/July depending on the govt. We’re putting 3 pinballs to start along with all the other arcades/ skeeball/ basketball etc

Seems like the hobby is quite strong in Lethbridge (seems like every second CDN pinsider I see these days is from Lethbridge), so wishing for all the best on this endeavour!

There are quite a few collectors, but we couldn't keep a public league alive. Maybe this place can!

Who owned the machines that were there when it was AJs?

#16570 27 days ago

McLennans from Coaldale.

#16571 27 days ago

Cool, thanks! Do you know which ones are going to be there?

#16572 27 days ago

Aerosmith, looking for another ghostbusters and Jurassic park DE or stern or fingers crossed a new back to the future if stern releases it!

#16573 27 days ago

Sounds good, I played GOT and GB a lot when they were there. Some good craft beer and it'll be my second home!

#16574 27 days ago

If you run a good well organized league and have a descent amount of pins at location they will come

I have a couple machines I'd be interested in routing if he's interested. I repaired machines for Doran (McLennans), so I can do repairs, board work and maintenance on my machines as well.

#16577 26 days ago

Selling my 94 World Cup Soccer. Nice example, clean playfield and body. Full LED, mirror blades, brass legs and bolts, newer glass.

Has two small broken plastics, but replacements will be included.

Willing to ship at buyers expense.

Message me for info.

#16578 25 days ago

Thinking of shaking up my line up and moving a Sega The Lost World, Jurassic Park 2. Would trade +- cash or sell. It’s in nice shape, plays 100%, has the topper, LEDs.

#16579 25 days ago

I have a trade pending in the US for a G&R LE for my really nice IJPA plus $2k cash. I’d rather do this deal in Canada, less hassle with the border and Covid. Anyone out there interested in this trade? I’d also do the trade plus cash for a POTC LE too. Thx for your consideration! Feel free to PM me

#16580 25 days ago

Can someone Enlighten me on the game play of G&R LE please. I haven’t had the pleasure of playing it yet so some feedback would be great. Is it a family friendly game? Worth the the purchase? I’m of the old era and enjoy my 90’s Bally’s/Williams classics. I’m a little worried with what I’m seeing in the US and people getting rid of G&R with low plays. Thx!

#16581 25 days ago

Very fun game, lots of multi balls to build up your song jackpots.
Nothing like a 90's game though.

Lighting, sound and game play is well beyond them.

#16582 25 days ago

Ill likely get roasted for this but as beautiful as GNR is to look at, i didnt enjoy the style of gameplay it offers. A little too stop and go for my tastes and the ball times seemed really long considering i dont fancy myself the best player. Very impressive to look at but not a game id personally own but again, im not big on stop and go style gameplay.

#16583 25 days ago

Thanks for your opinions gentlemen. Greatly appreciated!

#16584 25 days ago

sold mine and do not miss it. Very pretty game for sure.

#16585 25 days ago

I am also in the process of selling my CE, I wrote a review if you want to know my opinion. To make things short, I love GNR, but I like fun games that have that “one more game” appeal. I don’t think this game was made for me. I need another rock pin though, If any wants to trade me their IMDN for my MBrLe I would be interested.

Totally agree....I looked at Jerry at Player One and asked if my ball was ever going to end.

I don’t think it’s worth the purchase. I had it for a few weeks and loved it for the artwork and the music. Not so much for the gameplay and pinball aspect of it.

Darren, did you have the SE G&R. Same as Algrande.
I do find the LE,CE models to have better game play.

You also need to figure out the rewards for building up the jackpots, I find.

Yes I did and I understood the rewards. I played around 200 games. Upper play field was not gonna fix it for me. It felt like one big game of 5 ball multi ball for a lot of it. Couldn’t focus on hitting any shots because the game kept spitting out balls. Haha. I’m sure it’s great for many. For me the price/gameplay experience was not there.

Oh and to keep the focus on games for sale... I’d still like to get an Elvira for my mint Batman 66. I’d do an outright sale but don’t offer me less than $10K please. This one is good as new.

#16590 25 days ago

Vendors don’t know how to setup games, I wouldn’t let that discourage you. Ours plays great, and ball times are pretty short on it.

#16591 24 days ago

Jerry knows games....

#16592 23 days ago

No more Batman 66

#16593 23 days ago

We have a real nice Silverball Mania we are interested to trade would rather get the machine in the hands of a collector that is looking for one. Not really looking to sell outright, however, we would consider selling if someone really wanted it. Pm if you got some interesting trades.

#16594 22 days ago

There is one (SM) near Woodstock.
I got the old playfield out of.
Cabinet was fresh out of paint, will be hitting the market in Ontario soon.
CPR was going in.

Couple recent games shipped depot to depot:

Regina to Mississauga (2,600 km) - $88 plus tax with Manitoulin
Darmouth, NS to Brampton (1,800 km) $153 plus tax with Day and Ross

Prices are so cheap compared to the US. Cheaper to ship a game from Saskatchewan than take a cab to the airport What is most impressive, they both arrived within 48 hours of being dropped off at the depots. I still prefer Manitoulin, more for the convenience as the depot is a lot smaller so takes considerably less time to pick up the game.

Something is off with these prices. I'm gonna guess the dimensions are understated and you've been lucky up to this point.

If you under quote the shipment, the freight company has full right to reevaluate and recharge based on volume.

Just a heads up for those out there who may try.

#16597 22 days ago

Also, keep in mind, anything inbound to the greater Toronto area is considerably cheaper to ship, as they have regular haul lines that don't always fill up.

So essentially, they are saving airspace and you're paying for it (even at a reduced rate)

Outbound is a different ballgame.

The Day and Ross price is actually higher than it should be. I was quoted $122 plus tax but for some reason they put the weight down as 577 pounds instead of around 280. We think they put 280 Kg by mistake. I tried to get it fixed, long story, I just paid the extra $30 so I didn't have to wait a couple extra days to pick up the game.

Manitoulin I had 31x31x56 280 pounds.

#16599 22 days ago

I wish I could get shipping rates like that, would’ve saved me a pretty penny for sure!
