I sold a woman a Spy Hunter through Craigs List about 4 months ago. We agreed on a price of $950.
She was a newbie- at last to pin ownership, so I held her hand and visited her house a few times showing her how to put games on (other than feeding coins through the slot) um, twice before I created this diagram and emailed it to her. Didn't have a problem after that. Except about 2 weeks after I sold it to her, the relay that enables the flippers stopped working, so I came, diagnosed, and got one of those for her. She paid me for the part and I think $20 for gas.
Finally she was good. She texts me to tell me how much fun she and her friends are having playing it. Then, maybe 3 weeks, or a month go by, and she texts me she needs to talk to me. So I call her and she again tells me how much fun she's having and everybody, but- Finally that the game needs to go. She has to get rid of it.
After all this I don't know what to say. I don't ever recall anyone being quite this helpful to me when I buy pinballs from them!
Regardless of whether I was too nice to this lady in the beginning, I guess I don't want to screw her, or do I want to come out of the deal feeling like I've been screwed either.
I read this thing the other day taling about Pinball rentals, $150 setup, and $150 a day? Okay.. Maybe that's not a good comparison. Maybe something like a restocking fee? Truth is I really don't even have ROOM for that pin in my collection, nor the money to buy it back. Maybe I sell it for her and collect some sort of fee? 10%?
