    Give Nick a call for a fast, clean sale.

    Like others have said, pictures and open communication are key. I like forum topics, but think the OP should be involved. I have 50+ pins and most have been purchased sight unseen on Pinside.

    Something not already said is don’t say “it’s the nicest [insert title here] you (as in the buyer) have ever seen”. How can you know that? Only i know what i have seen lol.

    One of the best purchases i made was from a pinsider that disclosed everything they knew about the pin, and hell they answered the questions i didn’t think of asking. Most of the pics were of their perceived deficiencies and in the end i got a pin that was better than i expected. Being a person of Pintegrity will get you further in the long run, especially if you plan on selling more than one pin at some point.

    Quoted from jibmums:

    In addition to showing photos of the most flattering parts of the machine, show photos of the worst parts of the machine as well. No one wants to buy a pin that looks great in photos only to find that everything NOT shown in the photos is worn, scratched, rusty, dirty, or broken.

    yup first thing I do is tell me to send pics of everything that is wrong, or been changed. I know what it looked like new.

    I would describe any particular work made on the machine. In this way the word "restored" will be really full of meaning and every buyer will feel the passion you gave the pinball.

    Well I have been working on a video that will be on Youtube and when that is completed I will post the game for sale here. It Is my Xenon that I have been working on over the winter.

    I did a short post of my work here if anyone is interested.


    Some folks might like what I did and others not so much but we'll see how it goes
