With all the other stuff I have going on in life and the fact I am getting older I am "toying" with the idea of selling off my "pinball parts business" if anyone local to PA has any interest in a decent sideline business to work at part time. Being up front I will say it isn't a "get rich quick type business & it involves a lot of work and space but it is rewarding".
When I have time to work at it I typically sell about $2500 in parts a month working 3 or 4 hours a day. In order for it to make any sense at all I need around $25,000 before I would consider selling the business.
What would be included is thousands of parts, all my shelving & organizational stuff and over 50 parts machines that are basically untouched as well as dozens of playfield and other parts. Most of the stuff is woodrail and EM parts with about 20% being early SS stuff. I have actually found EM stuff sells better for me so I have worked more in that direction over the years as far as the parts end of things.
My inventory would take about a two car garage to store (if packed in tight) and I have "saved" a ton of the valuable stuff off dozens of machines to sell down the road. Typically I list the "junk" off machines first and save the better parts to sell in the future when I am older and can't move machines around as easy. So I have lots of lock bars, bells, chime units, populated playfields, etc set back for the future.
As with everything I sell I don't need to sell this stuff but I figured I would put this post up to see if there was any local interest. The reason I say "local interest" is it would cost too much to move this much stuff any distance.
In any event if anyone wants to know more PM me and I'll tell you what I can. I have sales records for over 5 years I can show a serious buyer but they don't tell the whole story because I typically only list parts a few months each year.
