    Item description

    My name is Ray Starego and my shipping company is called Games on the Go. I am a pinball collector who delivers games door to door. I am located in Brick NJ and I ship games in the US as far west as Nebraska and handle every state north and south all the way to and including the East Coast. My associate is Don Bosworth from Pinballs on the Move, a 5 year veteran in the coin op moving business. Being collectors we understand the importance of proper handling during shipping to both the seller and buyer. We charge $300 door to door and give a $50 discount per machine for multiple games going to the same buyer. If your buyer needs the game shipped please pass my contact information along. If you need references Don Bosworth is fairly well known on most of the pinball message boards. His website is http://www.pinballsonthemove.com/. I can be reached by this email or on my cell at [phone number removed] Thanks for your consideration.

    keep in mind this sort of service is WAY more bang for the buck than NAVL or any other transport company.

    This is a single guy picking up, wrapping, and loading your game. He takes it on the trailer once and off the trailer once. to these guys it is your prized pinball machine.

    NAVL or any other transport company is likely to move your game on/off 4 trucks at minimum ad upwards fo 10 trucks depending on routing. To them it is only freight.

    I am always happy to offer help with pinball transport from madison,wi to denver,co area the 2 times I make the trip out/back to visit family each year. Usually head out once in winter (Jan/Feb is common) and will be heading out around next labor day for sure (to attend Dorry Hill event).

    I am dealing with Ray right now having a machine transported from New York to MA. Ray has been very easy to deal with and has answered all of my questions. So far, so good. Can't wait to get the new machine.

    #26 4 years ago

    Too bad you won't go to Washington. Just got a Cueball Wizard delivered by STI from Mass. and it cost 430.00

    #27 4 years ago

    I have a deal going with Ray right now also, Don is picking up a pin in Kentucky on the way back from expo, and Ray will pick it up from him and deliver it. Really great guy to deal with, I met him at Pintastic, glad I did, kept his card and I am sure I will use him again. Nice to have someone who know pins hauling them.

    I just got a Waterworld pinball machine delivered by Ray. The first thing that I can comment on is his professionalism. It seemed like he cared more about my new machine more than I did. He was very careful handling the game and I could tell that it was treated that way for the whole trip. Once the machine was picked up, Ray kept in contact and I was updated quite a bit. The machine was delivered at the time he said that he would be at my house. Ray also seems like a great guy. Very easy going and likable. Someone you could hang out with and kill a few hours talking about pinball. Overall, I am satisfied with the service that I got for the price. Its great that there is another option out there for us guys who are lazy and would rather pay someone to deliver our games, than to make the road trip ourselves. I would be happy to utilize Ray's services again. So, I have positive feedback for someone who is new to all of this on pinside. Good luck Ray, and thanks very much. I will be calling you for the next game.
