    Make sure you have the right info, I believe her info changed a while back. Talked to her last week and usually hear back on emails within an hour or so during the week.

    #3 5 years ago

    Yep.. that is the info I have. Sent email and voicemail last week and heard nothing back..

    #4 5 years ago

    yep, just shipped one too and I called the wrong number at first..
    above is correct

    I spoke with her on Friday, and she returned my phone call.

    Now if they could be faster? 2nd week of December and still waiting for my delivery. California to Alberta, customs docs all ready long time ago....too much $ for that service.

    Hi Everyone!
    There are some numbers circulating out there that aren't mine anymore. There are other NAVL/STI agents that are booking this business that are not associated with me. So my info is below and these are the only numbers that I am associated with. Toll Free 877-432-2646, cell 630-344-3093, office 630-352-3312. I know it's very confusing with all of the numbers that are out there. Thanks..Michelle

    Try uShip.com!! You can name your own price (or have shippers bid on it and you select the one you like) .. the shippers are much more personable and caring (typically using their own cargo vans, and your game won't change multiple trucks - adding dings - during delivery). You can also insure your game for cheap and uShip has a great reputation for honoring it. I just had an AFM shipped to me using them. I set my price at $300 and a shipper accepted it immediately. The guy was incredibly helpful, great communication, fast, and my game arrived safely wrapped in his van.

    I've used him in the past also, great pricing. Only thing about this method is your machine has to be palletized

    I'm thinking about using U ship as well, one of my partner's son's works for them up in Austin and I feel like if something happened on a claim for me or anybody here I could get it handled straight away if any problems.

    I'm going to do some intel through him and I'll let you guys know what I find out.

    Freightwire is the shipper I booked my shipments through when I was running CoinOpShippers.com. I no longer handle quotes directly, and I think the phone number on the site is dead now, but if you fill out quote requests through the site I still see them and forward them on directly to Matthew at Freighwire.

    I do miss having a finger on those shipments, but I'm glad he's keeping things going. There are still 5-6 quotes a day that come through the site, so I know sales are happening at a nice pace.

    And if you are going to put a machine on a pallet, and go terminal to terminal, tell Michelle you want to ship OCC (Other Common Carrier). She will most likely beat the prices posted by Freightwire and Freightquote. It usually ends up coming down to point of origin and destination with most of these.

    Yeah, there's no real mystery in this all. Everybody has their certain shipping lanes where they are unbeatable. This is why you always call 3-4 carriers and get quotes, because it can vary greatly from route to route and by carrier.
