    I ship many games and tend to use NAVL for Door to door shipping, but lately ive been using this company as an alternate choice and have saved a on of money on shipping & the games have arrived fairly fast and safe. Just wanted to pass this along to everyone. You can tell him I sent ya if you want.

    Do they do:

    Blanket Wrap (legs on)?

    Freight (on a pallet) with a lift gate to your house?

    What was the average cost? (Vs. NAVL's average of about $350 for either service.)

    What's the price difference? I've paid between $300 - $450 with NAVL.

    * We shipped 12 video games from VA to CO, NAVL quoted us around $2k, these guys shipped them all for $900.

    * I also shipped a game from CO to Raleigh and it was 1/2 the price NAVL quoted me.

    * They quoted me $500 to ship a pair of Tokyo Drifts from Rapid City to CO, NAVL quoted me $880.

    Everything shipped was already on pallets, but thats the way we chose to ship them.

    I next time you guys ship, you can get a price quote from them and compare. Its a free quote and it might be the way to go. You might wanna shoot him an email directly as well to see how you can ship the games.

    This sounds like a regular LTL shipper. The broker I use for LTL usually gets it done for about $180 unless the destination is remote. LTL shipments will always require a pallet for a pinball, you pay more for NAVL for convenience. I use LTL shipping whenever I can and use NAVL when required (usually when the person on the other end cannot or will not figure out the pallet thing).

    For dock to dock service Ive been using PILOT AIR. Here in Denver they pallet the games for you and bubble wrap them and that runs basically $200 per game.
    Lately ive had a lot of games picked up from locations and delivered to me, ECHO have picked up the games and pallet them for me.

    That's awesome! I've never heard of a freight company prepping an item for shipment. I'd have a hard time trusting them too but if you've had good luck sounds like a viable alternative.
