    Anybody know of (and trust) a shipping company to pack up AND ship a pinball machine?

    Looking to buy a pinball machine from a seller who cannot prepare the machine for shipping.

    Open to other suggestions too. (Such as using someone to pack up and someone to ship, etc.)

    I would say there are likely no professional services that know how to properly pack up a pinball machine but I'm sure many will say I am wrong and I likely am. I have had a machined shipped fully set up (if the head folds, have it folded down and strapped with a towel under it so it doesn't rub against the siderails) and it went absolutely fine and was nice - much better than taking the risk of having them pack it right IMO if the buyer can't do it.

    ok, the pin has been sold to someone else...closing this out, no need for shipping assistance. Thanks to everyone who replied via PM, I really appreciate it. Maybe next time...who knows where I'll find the next one

    Bumping this thread as I am in the same position as the OP. I'm looking to purchase a machine and have it shipped cross-country.

    I've reached out to Michelle at STI (now called Beltman) as well as a company called Freightquote.com that was recommended in another post. This is my first foray into having a machine shipped, so I'd love any advice from more seasoned experts.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'd like to know of anyone that can pick up in Birmingham, AL.
