    Hi all,

    I've pretty much decided on a what pin(S) I want to purchase but I've never had NIB pins delivered and it's giving me serious pause. Once the pins are in my garage it's a super easy process as there's no stairs but my driveway is very long and I'm a little nervous of having the delivery guy just drop them off at the end of my drive way. Also I heard that you're supposed to inspect for damage before accepting shipment -- am I expected to open the box at the end of my driveway in the winter to inspect?

    Are there distributors that people have had more luck getting pins shipped safely to their house than others? I'm not super concerned with saving every dollar if it means I'll have a more convenient delivery experience. I'm thinking of getting two NIB pins which seems like a lot of money to just send off to a random dealer am I better off ordering one at a time to see how it goes?

    Okay sorry for all the lame questions. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

    Gracias!

    If you’re looking for Stern, I don’t know of any in WI. But for stern I would strongly recommend zmeny from flip n out pinball. You can call Zach, he is awesome. I have a stern game arriving Tuesday I just bought from him. I also bought an escalera from Zach. Very trustworthy. He’s also part of SDTM the pinball show and podcast. https://www.flipnoutpinball.com/contact-us

    Edit: If Chris at kingpin can sell you stern that’s also a great way to go since Chris is in your backyard, and also I would strongly recommend.
