    Hi all
    I know there are a few posts on shipping on here but I was hoping to get some up to date advice on the best way to ship an EM pin from NJ to MD.
    Have had a quote from Michelle Bianchi but it was quite high at $458.00
    Also read somewhere that her email is no longer valid and it would be answered by someone else.
    Have a had a good quote from Pilot Freight, anyone have any experience with this company?
    The only issue with Pilot so far is they cannot tell me if the game should be dismantled in 2 pieces or put on a pallet, so I'm not sure what to sell the seller at this stage.
    Being an EM in two pieces I would think it would be easy enough to ship in two pieces where as if on a pallet, would they need a lift gate, which would increase the price ?
    Any ideas much appreciated.

    Fast Eddie:

    I've never used him but he comes highly recommended. He only does the Northeast so I'm not sure if he goes as far as Maryland.

    Edit: Another option I've heard of is Fastenal. But the machine needs to be on a pallet and brought to a local Fastenal location and picked up at a Fastenal location.

    There is Bob Cunningham, He travels all over the west side of the Mississippi delivering and selling machines. I have used him many times to deliver some high end pins that I want that personal touch on. and he is a lot cheaper than NAVL..

    If you want his contact in, let me know. Or go to my facebook page, troy smith, and look at my frineds, he is on there

    Where in NJ and where in MD?

    It's not that far of a ride.

    I was thinking the same thing. But if you don't have the time or vehicle to do it I guess it makes sense. I would think that some pinhead here would do it if they were available for a lot less than a shipping company.

    I would drive it down, not that long of a ride. I have used Pilot Freight several times. It's terminal to terminal only. I use the Leigh high Valley one. They are very reasonable but do not insure. They will toss it on a pallet for you and strap it down. If you go that route I would defiantly talk the head off.

    No I wouldn't expect anyone would be that generous lol.
    Just looking for someone who appreciates pins and will handle with care and if even a little cheaper than the shipping companies would be a bonus.
