    Hi All,

    Need some advice. I'm purchasing a NIB game up in the northeast and need it delivered to South Florida. I have a couple options delivery wise and wondering what the thoughts were from the veterans here in the pinball world. First option: There is a local gentleman making the trek within the next couple weeks. I don't know him personally but he is a member of the local pinball forum here in Florida. Offered to pick it up for me for a reasonable price. Will be in a trailer and he has experience transporting. Might be in the trailer for a week or so though. Second option: Using STI or FedEx. I've heard the good and the bad with both companies but in the event of a mishap I would have insurance with this option. Would be a bit more expensive as well. Also would get here alot quicker. So, what are everyone's thoughts? Any opinions are greatly appreciated.
