    Putting games on a pallet opens you up to fork truck operators...I've shipped/received a dozen games (not a huge sample I know), all with legs ON. Worst thing that happened was a twisted leg. Unless it's on a pallet with substantial crating around it--even then you open yourself to your game being rammed in to and lifted with a fork truck(and set down violently--probably what happened here).

    Quoted from golfingdad1:

    What I don't understand , why is NAVL telling people to have the pin prepared differently ?

    They have never mentioned a pallet to me, drivers may say something they prefer I guess(whether that's w/NAVL or someone else).

    I've worked in a warehouse and have driven and seen others drive fork trucks...it's not "white glove" by any stretch of the imagination.

    Hopefully it'll get worked out, it might take a while. A friend had the truck actually crash and destroy everything, including his game, it took months to get any cash out of insurance.

    Quoted from Playdium:

    Interested in NAVL for shipping across country. Does NAVL pack a machine for shipping? Seller obviously has no idea how to properly pack the machine, (an EM). So the head will have to be removed and wrapped and packed as well. On pallet on belly vs with legs on? With legs on, how are they moving it?

    I've sent or received maybe 10 games. All with legs ON. The move it with 2 guys carrying it. If it's on a pallet, they fork truck it several times in transit which I think is BAD. They generally blanket wrap it. When I send games I shrink and blanket myself but NAVL does a basic job but it depends quite a bit on the "local" crew I think.

    Legs on, light box removed?

    For an EM removed...or folded down for others
