Pinsiders helping Pinsiders. A thread helping Pinsiders with inexpensive shipping for inexpensive EM games. Do you need an EM game shipped, but it's not economically feasible to ship using a trucking company? Post your shipping route here and how much you are willing to pay for shipping. You never know, another Pinsider could be traveling the same shipping route!

I think this will be a good thread for Pinsiders. Shipping pins is expense, but if you can find someone going in the direction you need, and if they are will to help, this could make shipping pins easier. I know the question of who is responsibile if the pin gets damaged in shipping, but that could be worked out between the buyer and seller. Again a good thread!

Looking for someone to pick up a machine in Tucson, Arizona and take it anywhere from Ohio to Maryland, I would meet you at that destination.

Have you checked out Fastenal? They ship items across the country on a pallet for around $200.

I second this. He just brought me a game. Fast, easy,professional, reasonably priced. But I'm not sure if he going that far west. I know he is planning to expand his route soon.

He has a warehouse in the Midwest and on the east coast. He just picked up a pin from me in MA the other day with plans to bring it to Texas. He also just picked one up from Chicago for me with plans to bring it back to MA.

Ken, when you ship, does the buyer pay for all the padding, wrapping, ratchet tie-downs, pallet, etc.? Just curious how it works.

pinhead52 Does CRST do both door to door and terminal to terminal shipping? How much do they charge to ship an EM pinball machine on a 2000 mile trip? Thanks...

I usually charge a $50 fee for palleting a game. Normally STI CRST will blanket wrap a game on its legs but shipping on a pallet is safer in my opinion. The local pickup guys love me, cuts their work down immensely
