Do i need to contact a distributor close to me or how does that work? I might want to buy 2 pro games, is there discounts when buying 2 machines? Best distributor with best prices and delivery?

Depends.

If you need hand-holding and setup/operation help, get a close distributor (not sure who that'd be in AZ).

Otherwise, you can contact any of the better distributors to negotiate a two pin package sale.

What distributors? Try Game Exchange, Tilt Amusements, Hemispheres Amusements, maybe even Flip n Out. I've also heard of some good deals with Pinball Pirate in the bay area.

If you don't need hand-holding, you can probably save $500 or maybe more per machine by buying someone else's HUO machine rather than new, though. Besides JP Pro, which other machine were you looking at?

This.

Of course, i would also highly recommend buying barely used.

May depend on the manufacturer your considering as they don’t all carry all brands but there are many great ones out there. I wouldn’t expect crazy discounting but do consider the value of a full supporting distributor. You need to buy from someone that will be there at and After the sale. I personally use Zach at Flipnoutpinball or Chris at Kingpin. Both have never let me down and have more than earned my referral. Good luck.

I’d be happy to help you regardless of whom you buy from. I’ll PM you.

I would buy a used game these days, but if you do buy NIB I would call automated. By far the best NIB purchase I have ever had.

I would ask them how they handle playfield issues if/when you have any issues.

Yes, we had a great experience with Automated for a jjPotC LE when no one else had any. Definitely should be on the consideration list.
