    Can anyone recommend a service that would ship a bingo from Virginia to Seattle at a reasonable cost? I've never bought a game I didn't pick up in person, but this one is a little too far for me to drive. All advice appreciated.

    Thanks.

    BCB, I am not sure about a Bingo, but I have shipped a 600# engine quite a few times.
    I use ABF Freight. Their prices are good. As long as the Bingo is well packed and can
    be loaded and unloaded, I would go with them.
    I have not used a courier; FedEx, UPS and the like, so I don't know prices and weight
    restrictions, if any.

    I've used Beltmann (STI) but you can expect the cost to be close to or more than $400. They will blanket wrap the game. I think you can do a search for them, but her name is Michelle. What game are you buying out of VA?

    Beltmann did the trick for me. They quoted me slightly over $500 for the VA to Seattle trip. I was a bit surprised because I'd earlier received a quote closer to $1,500 from another single-item shipper, minimoves. The Beltmann quote seems pretty reasonable for a 3,000 mile trip. I'm buying a nice Gay Time. I'd recommend that anyone looking for a shipping service include Beltmann when getting quotes.

    If you want/need to ship more than one machine between the same locations, you may be pleasantly surprised how little the additional games add to the bill when shipping with Beltmann.

    Fastenal will ship a palletized machine from one of their locations to another of their locations at a reasonable price. I paid $150 from Seattle to Galveston. You must deliver to and pick up from Fastenal.
