Hello Pinsider's...

I have a Caribbean Cruise cocktail game I purchased in Van Nuys, CA. I wanted to see if anyone was traveling from Los Angles area (Van Nuys, CA) up to the San Francisco Bay Area, that I could arrange picking up this game for me.

Let me know.
Thanks
Kerry

I am having Chris with SlyFox picking up a game for me in Riverside this Saturday and is delivering to me in San Luis Obispo same day as he is heading back north. You might want to give him a ring and see if he might be able to load your Caribbean Cruise up with my Whirlwind.

Anyone in the Visalia/Fresno area have a good 19" arcade monitor you want to sell? My RFM's monitor (wells gardner) Has almost completely lost green and red is right behind it... P&L verified that the chasis is good so my tube is likely shot.

#4523 3 years ago

I know a lot of you have used Chris from Sly Fox shipping and have had a lot of good things to say about him.
My experience wasn't so good. I called him on August 31st about picking up an Addams Family pinball machine from northern California and delivering it to southern California. He quoted $300.00 which was higher than I expected based on what other people said they had paid. That is just barely cheaper than NAVL in which the machine would be insured but I thought I would give him a try.

He let me know in advance that he wasn't going to be traveling the weekend of 8th and 9th and couldn't bring it until the following weekend.
He didn't contact the customer for several days so I called him to see when he would be picking up the machine which he replied he would pick it up in the next couple days. The customer called me a week later and said they hadn't heard from him. I contacted him again and he said he would call her that afternoon. Three days later the customer still hadn't heard from him and was concerned because she was moving.

The following day he picked up the game. He showed up at the customers house at 6:30pm with his Mother to help him.
For those of you that have met Chris you know he weighs probably less that 150 pounds and doesn't really strike you as being an equipment mover. Chris asked for a wrench and a screwdriver to remove the legs and removed the topper because he wasn't aware of how to fold the back box down on a pinball machine so he wanted to remove the topper. I was told his Mom picked up the machine while he removed one leg and set the corner of the machine down on the customers leather chair which put a hole in the seat of her cushion. Chris and his Mom proceeded to remove the other legs and somehow Chris struggled to get the machine to his trailer. The customer said he "slammed the machine down on the floor of his trailer" which she was concerned about.

When Chris arrived at my home on Saturday I helped him get the pinball machine out of his trailer. The bottom of the machine was laying on the bottom of his trailer and the bottom of the machine was chewed up in places where it had been slid around on its bottom. I saw there wasn't a topper and asked him about it and he said he had to remove it because it wouldn't make it out of the customers garage and that he had never seen a topper that was held on with screws and that he has only seen toppers with velcro int he past. He isn't a pinball guy needless to say.

Chris is a super nice guy and I know he did his best and there was no significant damage to the game. I am not trying to talk bad about him but just wanted people to know of my experience so that if you need a prized machine moved, he might not be the guy.

#4524 3 years ago

Where were you the last few months...I would have saved myself a ton of money!

#4525 3 years ago

If he's not a pinball guy, then what is he? Honest question, is his background more with Vids than? Because I've heard similar feedback and know of instance where an expensive, not easy to find medium resolution monitor got necked in the process of him doing a move. So that sort of raises questions in my mind as well for using his services.

It's too bad too, someone posted a few days ago about him going to Riverside, Ca for a pickup and I actual have a pickup in Riverside I need done as well. If the feedback I had gotten was better, the timing would have been perfect...but I'm just gonna suck it up and drive down myself this week.

He mentioned he moves motorcycles occasionally. There appeared to be a few other pinball machines and maybe a video game under the blankets. I'm guessing he will move just about anything he can fit in his truck or trailer.

I hesitate to ask how much you paid for an ACDC if $7500 is a ton of money cheaper!

That really sucks.

To my knowledge Chris owns no pins and is simply a mover. I have used him multiple times with no issues, but I was present to oversee breaking down, prepping and loading the pin, as I am with any mover. Chris is strong enough to carry one end and I trust him to get the pin from Point A to Point B. That's it.

Who did you buy this pin from that they just sat and watched? An old lady?

I think it's just us hobbyists using Chris to move pins and an experienced owner is typically involved on both the shipping and receiving end to oversee and assist. That's the way to do it. And always insist the pin is blanketed and shrink-wrapped all the way around.

#4529 3 years ago

I will agree that if you need a nice or high-end pin moved, he may not be the one you want to move it. He brought my SoF from SoCal to NorCal and it was hanging part way out the side of the truck bed as he had a video game taking up most of the bed area. It left a deep gouge along the bottom edge of the game on either side that I was not happy about. Nice enough guy though for sure.

It actually was an older lady that I purchased it from and she had no way of prepping it herself. She was only able to sit and watch and called me afterwards telling me about how Chris and his Mom tried to move the machine and that I should have sent an experienced mover. I had only seen great reviews about Chris so I thought he was more experienced with moving pinball machines than he was.

Honestly, I wouldn't even trust Michelle Bianchi's shippers to pick up a pin from a clueless old lady. It's unlikely that every single crew in her network, coast-to-coast, really knows how to prep and move a pin with no supervision or direction.

I am curious why Chris charged you so much. Maybe since he had to bring help? I'm accustomed to something like $150-$175. $300 is a big difference.

He is just a shipper. He will move anything for you if it fits in his truck/trailer, he has no expertise in moving arcades or pinballs specifically. He is really more of a point a to point b guy. He isnt like NAVL which shows up with a big truck and 2 guys and has a bunch of stuff (corner cardboard, shrink wrap, yada yada. He said he gets most of his jobs off off the Uship website. I have used him 2 or 3 times now and never had any issues, however i will say, my games were blanketed and shrink wrapped before he showed up and i helped load them into his trailer with him. For me he is cheaper then what it would cost me to drive down to the areas he goes and pick stuff up myself. I havent used him for anyone other then pinsiders/klovers.

Another note, he did tell me if i was shipping arcades that i could request he use an open trailer instead of his enclosed one, and he could move them standing up. The price would just go up a little bit cause he has to rent the trailer from u-haul.

#4533 3 years ago

He said it was because it was further north than where he was so it required more travel time.

And what did you pay for this game if you were so willing to send a non-pinball person up to tear down & pick a game up from a non-pinball person and drive it down south?

Quoted from jahbarron:

What I paid is between me and the seller. Based on the Pinside reviews I didn't know Chris was a "non-pinball person".

Anyone interested in Trading for my World Poker Tour with LEDs, mirror blades, TV mod showing WPT footage and Colordmd?
Prefer to trade for a Newer Stern or higher end Bally Williams +/- cash. PF is very nice and plays well...The cab is not as nice as the PF, there are scrapes on the back side like it was stored folded up and slid around. Front and sides nice, some bumps and bruises and perhaps a little fade. Lemme know what you got, Id sell outright as well if interested.

Is anybody else in So Cal having trouble with their AT+T home internet?

Mine went out middle of last week and was supposed to be up and running Friday, now they are saying next Friday. Something about a server blew up in a storm last week is all they can tell me.

Land line Phone service by AT&T, DSL provided by DSLExtreme (via AT&T leased lines). Working fine in South Orange County all weekend for me.

#4550 3 years ago

Landline works fine, but AT+T DSL is out. I'm ready to pull the plug and go cable. Too much time on the phone, and not getting a decent response.

Same service is working fine at the job 5 miles away.
