Quoted from sammiesguys:

This is a game I wouldn't ship.

Nothing to worry about as long as the OP kept the original HEP packing--or knows how to duplicate it.

HEP ships its games on a custom pallet with an outer shell made of 2X4s; if you're still a nervous wreck, five sides of outer plywood can be subbed for the cardboard.

Just insure the game for its full value--if it's damaged, Chris can just make it new again.

Quoted from sammiesguys:

It's an expensive game that I wouldn't have shipped. It would be left to me to deal with the transportation company if something happened. That's not a risk I would want to take. I would also be relying on the seller and not HEP to package it.

I hear you regarding your apparent underlying concern: nothing would be better than picking the game up in person.

However, the majority of potential buyers do not fall into that category--and have no option but to ship.

All I can tell you is of my personal experience with Michelle & NAVL: of the 15+ games I've had shipped, two were damaged during transit--and both of my claims were resolved quickly to my complete 100% satisfaction.

Therefore, as long as one insures to the full game value, there's really nothing to worry about in this particular case for the following reason:

The only worry involved here is monetary.

Meaning, it's not like the game has an irreplaceable silk-screened cabinet or anything: CC came with decals from WMS.

Chris put decals on the game when it was restored, and he can put new decals on the game again or obviously replace anything--thus turning whatever components were damaged during shipping into being brand-new HEP-restored components.

Almost a win/win in that regard IMO with respect to restoration freshness...with no additional monetary outlay involved.

Sure there's some hassle factor--but the win/win is those components would be made brand-new again by the master himself.

But to each his own; my 2 cents.
