    I would like to get a bunch of mods and parts for one of my titles. Things such as a Playfield protector, a bunch of mods, pin blades, Etc. I was going to order from mezel mods because it is a great one stop shop where I can get everything in one place. However when I went to their website today I read that because of covid-19 they are not shipping things for weeks and shipping will be very slow and I will have to wait a long time for my products. Who is everybody else out there using for parts and such right now? Who is still shipping quickly and getting parts to you at a reasonable time? Thank you for your advice

    Marco and Pinball Life are shipping. You are at the mercy of the shipping co. though. I got packages from both in the last couple of weeks.

    Concur with drummermike, Marco and Pinball Life are shipping. I am in Southern Illinois about 250 miles southwest of Pinball Life who are in Huntley, Illinois. I get my orders in just two days from them.

    I ordered from Pinball Life for the first time a week or so ago ... got my items in about 3 days.

    #5 3 months ago

    Marco got to me in 3 days last week.

    We'll see how quick Action comes this week!

    Marco has always been quick getting things to me in California

    I have multiple projects going and have ordered from a bunch of places and all have arrived in timely fashion.

    Pinballlife is my go to. Ordered parts Friday afternoon. Just got notice this morning they shipped out. Never had problems with them

    #9 3 months ago

    Planetary Pinball Supply, Marco Specialties, Pinball Life, Pinball Resource, Titan, Comet, all seem to get things out fast.

    I've noticed even with tracking, things usually arrive a day sooner. The post office and UPS, maybe aren't as busy as normal right now ?

    I will toss in another good word for Pinball Life. They have been my go to and I have never been disappointed.

    #11 3 months ago

    It stinks with this lockdown, I love going to pick up my parts from PBL and play some games while waiting, they are such great people there.

    #12 3 months ago

    Marco is my go to. I ordered on Tuesday and it was delivered on Saturday

    #13 3 months ago

    Pinball Resource good prices fast shipping

    #14 3 months ago

    Placed a 22 line order with DigiKey last night at 11PM, shipped it by 9:30AM.

    Thank you for the responses! Yes I love pinball life however I don't think they have all the mods for Iron Maiden available? That's what is awesome about mezel mods. It is a one-stop-shop. I will order whatever I can from pinball life because they are amazing to deal with. For the people saying pinball resource , is that not just Gottlieb only? Does he carry products for newer sterns now? We are talking about Steve Young's pinball resource right?

    Yes. Steve Young, Pinball Resource.

    He does have products for other manufacturers. New games and old.

    Steve does have the Gottlieb license so he is the go to guy for manuals and game specific parts, for Gottlieb.

    I put in an order with Planetary Pinball last Sunday night, shipped Monday evening, received my package Friday morning through FedEx. Basically Reno to Minneapolis in 3.5 days.

    I'm very happy with my experience.

    #18 3 months ago

    Since you are in Ottawa -- avoid anyone who ships with UPS. They will charge exorbitant brokerage fees.

    #19 3 months ago

    Pinball resource, if he doesn't have it, you don't need it.
    Steve rocks. Only place I've used for the last 16 years.

    #20 3 months ago

    I ordered from Planetsry, PL, Marco, Comet, Pinbits and Titan all in the last 3 weeks. Orders shipped just like our old normal. And as ltg said even sooner by a day.

    The issue I have with steve is he is stuck in 1993. He sends you the parts, then you send a cheque to him as payment. I would prefer to do paypal or credit card

    You can now pay online at PBR. I paid through some third party site last time. Here are the options I got last time:

    options
    1. bank draft
    2. international money order (Canada...postal money orders are fine)
    3. a US check, do you have a friend/associate here that can write a check on your behalf?
    4. US currency, we have had good luck and this many times is the lowest transaction cost

    5. Transfer Wise: www.transferwise.com

    That's amazing. When did he change that??

    #24 3 months ago

    We are shipping mods out as normal, typically within one day of ordering. We try to keep an inventory so nobody has to wait very long.

    That order was from a year ago

    That is amazing news because one of the mods I wanted to get from mezel mods was yours. Actually I think two or three of them were? I wanted to get the sarcophagus flasher for Iron Maiden Pro and I think there were two more of your mods I wanted to get. I have to check mezel mods website again

    Yes I have your PIN blades on every single one of my machines. That was another thing I was going to get from mezel mods was your PIN blades, LOL. I just figured if I got it there I can get everything from everybody in One shipment. But it looks like I'll just have to do a bunch of separate shipments but at least I will get it faster.

    LTG : )

    Contact Dave. He's quite skilled. Maybe he can whip something up.

    We are shipping as normal, accessories and new games!

    All the aforementioned businesses are fantastic, and I've done many great transactions with all of them. But for a little clarification about MezelMods: They're working with a skeleton crew, and their supply situation (especially with custom-made mods) are slowed down significantly DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU'RE ORDERING. Their note about shipping says it may take up to two weeks...that doesn't mean what you order WILL take two weeks. I just ordered something from them and got it in under a week...and they ship it priority mail in most cases. Their little piddly warning isn't going to scare me off from doing business with a great company and great people.

    Thank you for your advice everybody. Just placed a massive pinball Life order. Man they carry everything. They're a one-stop-shop now as well, LOL. I found almost everything on there with the exception of Lermods sarcophagus mod which I will order from him directly. Thank you again for your help
