    Thinking of buying a pin in Missouri and having it shipped to Illinois. I used NAVL once (on my very 1st pin purchase) and was just wondering if the are still the recommended company? I did a search to try and find there number and saw some horror stories. Any advice is appreciated.

    Also if anyone knows roughly how much it costs that would be great. Thanks.

    I used STI last fall and it was easy to deal with. I heard some chatter their rates may have gone up a little but don;t know if it's true. I dealt with Michelle and she was helpful and replied to me super quick.

    Shipped two NAVL--one from NY to OH, other from MN to OH. No problems. And BTW i have read others' horror stories too, but I can't believe these shipping companies screw up as often is proclaimed, but yes, it does happen.

    I just used Uship to ship two pins from New York to Michigan. Driver was out of Chicago and happened to route perfectly for him. Was cheaper than NAVL and much quicker. Overall a great shipping experience and wouldn't hesitate to do it again for the right pin.

    STI RATES ARE WAY HIGH. $450 TO SHIP 2 STATES AWAY now. TRY USHIP OR USE A FREIGHT SHIPPER (NEEDS BE PALLETIZED).
    SORRY about caps, just noticed it was locked on and im not going back to change it all cuz im slow typer..lol

    BTW- i also used uship recently and had a great experience shipping 2 very heavy redemption games. the price was less than half of any other shipper i quoted. of course, it pends whos bid you accept.

    Just put up a listing on uship

    SSM Transport just moved a pin for me and has moved pins for others. He's a UShip guy (5 stars over there and with me); it might be worth seeing if he's going to be covering the path that includes your pin. I found his rate to be very competitive and as others have said, less than NAVL.

    Just called NAVL and they told me they no longer ship pinball machines. FYI

    Really?? They're delivering one to me in a couple of weeks.

    They just did one for me a month ago. Very interesting.

    It's not NAVL anymore that you call, its STI, changed a few years back, NAVL probably won't ship them, STI will.
