Got a friend looking at a pinball on their website that he's interested in buying. He asked if I'd heard of them or dealt with them & I have never heard of them. Anyone had experience with them? Website is http://pennvendinghomesales.com/
Thanks for the info. My buddy is looking at a used machine, but your info is a great help.
Since I couldn't find any info on Penn Vending, I figured I'd share my friend's experience with them after calling them today to try and buy a TOTAN offered on their web site. They don't have the used pins they are offering on their web site in their possession. They do have a friend in Philly that has the titles on a route though (looks to be 30 - 40 min away by my map). So he was told the operator took good care of his pins and that it would be brought to Penn Vending for a complete shop out, cliffys, new plastics, yada, yada, yada. They use stock photos on their site. My friend asked for some pics of the TOTAN so he could see it's condition and decide if he'd even want the specific one they could get. He was told he needed to send $500 to get the game pulled from the route so pics could be taken. Then maybe in several months the game would be ready. He was also assured that no one had ever been unhappy with any of their pins and "if it is a piece of shit I'll refund you the money." My friend responded that he could not possibly send $500 just to get some pics. At that point they hung up on him.
