    This probably will get everyone's eyes rolling, but I recently had an interesting deal where I originally thought I was able to get a basket case pin hauled from OR to So Cal via friends but it proved that option wasn't going to pan out. I then put a post up on pinside for a couple of days. However, that came up dry and I was about to politely bow out from the deal. Then the seller asked if I had ever used Craigslist for shipping a pin. First, I didn't know Craigslist even had a section for such, and second I had no idea how to put such a transaction together. The seller put a post on his local Craigslist and in 24 hours the deal was struck and about a week later the hauler had the machine within 40 miles of my place for about 1/5 the price of NAVL.

    Of course I'd NEVER consider shipping a pin of "real" value this way. However there are times where maybe it would make the difference between a go or no-go deal. I'd probably do it again if the circumstances were right.
