    How do you insure your machines? Are they automatically covered under a regular home owners policy or do I need something extra? There's gonna be a big earthquake in Utah in the next 10,000 years and I want to be prepared..... Plus my house is old and could burn down someday ........

    I am in the industry and they are covered as contents under your policy. Just as a television, stove, clothing, etc...
    You can get extra insurance for them probably as antiquities, but if you have enough to cover the value of them in your policy then your fine. Maybe if you have some high end machines I would consider it. I have 100,000 coverage for contents and that covers the value of my machines. Thats here where I live, make sure you check the fine print in your policy though!

    God forbid something happens, it's not like you can just get your cheque and goto the local electronics shop to buy new replacements!!

    Is it just me or do all those machines look the same except for attack from mars and the adams family? Seriously...nothing to distinguish them...reminds me of music from the very early 80s...

    Thanks for the info jbscar ....... and hey! How did that picture of my collection get posted? har har

    That is so true though. "they all look the same"
    good one....

    If I do a claim for you super8man, had a fire or flood or something, and you said that you had an Medieval Madness pinball machine in your basement (because it is the most $$$ machine), and I sift through the rubble and find the remains of a different one then some questions would have to be answered. I have H and Calleigh working for me.

    All I am saying is that you better have pictures of your stuff when you make an insurance claim, and if you are thinking about making a fraudulent claim. Then talk to H.........if not you can see Calleigh and talk to those titties. They make me shut up pretty damned quick!

    Just joking around here guys, but not about Calleigh and her titties.

    (wish that Stern CSI machine had her on it)

    Sorry, I am being a prick, but just crap I deal with everyday with fraudulent people.
