    TTT:
    Anyone know how Eddie is doing? Been a couple months and just hoping his family is healthy.

    #102 2 years ago

    UPDATE:
    Mr. "Fast" Eddie Cancelliere is doing well. I was a little reluctant to bother him but I called to check in. He called me back and we chatted for a bit. He's doing fine while staying as busy as possible.
    He thanks us for thinking of him.

    Glad to hear that. Its always a pleasure to see him and watch him at his craft.

    #104 2 years ago

    Eddie did a pickup and delivery for me about a month ago and is as fast as ever!

    #105 2 years ago

    eddie is ok. as matter of fact he told me he is very busy. funny thing about eddie is he wont ever discuss any games or places or people. he takes this business pretty seriously and doesnt ever discuss clients business. we always talk about the old days when he was an operator and he has alot of great stories to tell. how the money was literally falling out of the machines and he had to go empty them with buckets! of course no names were discussed . he literally has brought me machines with money in them. FE is such a stand up good ole timer!!

    Does anyone have any experience shipping a pin thru USHIP? Need to have a pin picked up in Minneapolis and delivered to Tampa?

    #107 2 years ago
    Quoted from Enchantress:

    Does anyone have any experience shipping a pin thru USHIP? Need to have a pin picked up in Minneapolis and delivered to Tampa?

    2 big issues with UShip are:

    1. You're at the mercy of the drivers schedule. Meaning you have no control over when they will pickup the pin or when they will deliver it to you.
    2. Insurance, they offer a limited insurance at checkout. It's up to you to make certain the pin is covered for the cost. This means if your machine is damaged you may find that you're getting pennies on the dollar for coverage. The stuff you see on TV where the recipient complains about damage and the driver just gives them money back is not accurate!

    Just wanted to add to the growing list of great Fast Eddie stories! He drove down to meet me to pick up a NG Goldie for a family buying their first game. Commutation was spot on and like many have said before he couldn’t have been any nicer or accommodating! My daughter helped him prep it and he gave her a dollar for helping! She was so excited and it was really neat for him to do that! Definitely don’t hesitate to work with him and I can guarantee you that you won’t be disappointed!

    Quoted from EMsInKC:

    For some reason guys named Eddie are always Fast Eddie. Like guys who are Bill are always Wild Bill or Dollar Bill.

    Hey! I take a little offense to that... But I would say I'm a little "Wild"

    #112 2 years ago

    Or Dollar Bill

    #113 2 years ago

    Didn't see this until now and put up a separate post praising Eddie. Great guy! Excellent work! Don't hesitate to use him if you need east coast shipping!

    Eddie in the 603 today for some pins heading down to NJ. Told me to tell everyone hello and he’s doing fine!

    Eddie delivered a pin to me last week. It was the best packing job I have seen on a pin! So glad I hired him to transport my machine.

    #116 1 year ago

    Simply the best shipping service you could ask for. On top of that he is a great guy and a pleasure to talk to.

    #117 1 year ago

    Eddie is making his way up to South Burlington VT end of next week. He is simply the best at transporting pins in the northeast.

    He did a fantastic job! Highly recommend. No worries when Eddie is handling your machine.

    Eddie is an absolute legend...I met him this weekend, he came to pickup an Arcade game that I sold.

    What a great guy...Unreal how well he packs games...I can't recommend him any higher.

    Tremendous dude too

    #124 1 year ago

    I feel for whoever has to unrap one of his pinmummy's. I bet you could toss one of those off Niagara Falls and it would survive.

    Super nice dude. Met him a few months ago.

    Piling on the positive reviews. He picked up and packaged a Star Trek: TNG for me this weekend and did a wonderful job packaging. He's 74 now but has this absolutely down to a science. Cost was cheaper than the big shipping co's and he did a much better job than any would have.

    I just spoke with Eddie, and I told him I would post something here.

    He’s picking up a game for me out in Shelby, Ohio. He let me know that he would like to get some more jobs for this trip in that area if anybody has anything they want in Ohio. He told me he would also like to get more jobs for the trip in Erie, PA, Rochester, NY, and upstate New York area. If you have anything, please feel free to let them know.

    I will also post this on a separate post. Thanks.

    When it comes to arcade and pinball transport, Fast Eddie is one of the best in the business. He has a pick up truck with electric lift gate. He wraps, pads, and handles all games with an incredible amount of care.

    He is running a route for me from NYC to Cleveland this weekend. He asked me to post to see if anyone else could use his services on this route. If you need him to grab something, call him at 518-366-4569

    FYI Just a note that I tried Fast Eddie last week for a pickup and he's taking "a few weeks" off. Sorry to say it sure sounded like maybe it might be more than that, though. I sent him best wishes and thanks.

    For what it's worth...he's back at it this weekend. He's picking up a Roadshow from me in Northern VA and delivering it to Vermont. He was apparently under the weather for 2-3 weeks but I spoke with him yesterday and he seems to be getting better. He's a legend

    Big shoutout to Fast Eddie. He just picked up and delivered 2 NIB games for us and everything went flawlessly. He was very easy to work with and has reasonable rates. He's a great resource if you live in the Northeast or Mid-Atlantic and need games moved. He's about the nicest guy you'll meet, as well.

    #133 11 months ago

    Super happy with Fast Eddie service. A+ in every catagory. He shipped long island to NJ for me.

    I could use his contact info as well? Is that his number in the title of this post

    Look at the title of this thread. The answer might just be in there somewhere...

    His phone number is in the title of this thread . I just confirmed that it is correct. He definitely doesn't text and I doubt that he e-mails.

    #138 10 months ago

    Just call that number in the title. Leave him a message if he doesn't answer. He will call you back. As said prior, no texts or emails. Phone calls only.

    Fast Eddie just dropped me off a TFTC in NE Ohio from Philadelphia. I found this thread and called him on a whim strictly based on everyone's feedback here.

    He said he usually doesn't travel this far east but happened to have a two trips lined up my way already, one of them being 15 mins from me. He went and picked up my machine ahead of the seller going out of town for an extended time, securely stored it for me, and then delivered once he got all 3 parties involved in his trip lined up (which took him longer than he wanted, 2-3 weeks, but I understood the logistics involved for it to make sense for him).

    WHAT A LEGEND! He showed up later in the evening and immediately got to work unloading. He then helped me take it down two sets of steps, and made sure I was good with the process to unwrap it safely. The machine was wrapped with 3 moving blankets, a lot of plastic wrap, and thick cardboard corner peices on each edge. There was ZERO damage to the cabinet that I've found.

    Definitely recommended! Very happy to have done business with such a nice guy.

    #140 10 months ago

    You wont meet a nicer guy. Or a better wrapped machine.
    A+

    Unlike some of you snowflakes Fast Eddie ain’t afraid of a little trip in big bad Manhattan!

    Give him a call! He’s out and about and eager to ship YOUR pinball machine! Picked up Rocky and bullwinkle from me this morning. Prompt on the dot as usual!

    It worked OK for Steve Jobs! Clearly it’s something that’s reserved for very special people who don’t like to waste time on figuring out what to wear. I kind of do the same thing except I only have one pair of pants which I cut off to make my only pair of shorts in warmer weather.

    Maybe we should start a gofundme to get Eddie a gps…doubt he would use it though.

    Love Eddie, he is a great guy to know. So many of us appreciate him and the time he takes for our "treasures".
