This thread was a good idea with the best intentions.

Problem is the damn shipping.
Adds $400-$600 to the cost of everything - both parties/each way...and few are willing to accept that.

Somebody invent Jetson briefcase pinballs please.

Shippers are the divorce lawyers of our hobby. They are the only ones that really make any money.

......and destroy some games in the process.

Quoted from pinmister:

I am offering up a Alvin G & Company Pistol Poker with full LED's. This game is really rare-only 200 made! Game is in good condition and the playfield and shooter are real nice. Only problem is some of the plastic shot targets are getting cracked,but still work.
Asking $2400
Also willing to trade towards other titles
Game is in Denver
-Just a side note: Do you notice how nice the shooter is. This game poops out the ball into the shooter lane like a soft turd. The ball just kinda rolls out. Unlike new Stern games where it rockets out and messes up your shooter lane quick. Pretty cool if you ask me.

But with the amount of people traveling all over for shows and tournaments there is no reason a game couldn't hitch a ride. Patience is the key.

Yes it does get pricey. It makes sense when it is a pin you really want or a collector quality. I also tend to bite the bullet and eat shipping because I really want another new title and usually I am ready to trade another machine out and keep it fresh. Usually it cost $360-$400 for one pin , but I always try and see what other pins the seller may have for sale to get two for one on shipping. For a small fee you can usually get the second or third... pin thrown in which helps reduce the shipping cost per pin. Always ask what else they have for sale-you never know.

I have thought about some of the old Adams Family or Twilight Zones and how many times certain machines have been shipped. I bet you some Adams have been bought and sold and shipped so many times that if you added up the overall shipping cost it would be in the thousands in terms of overall shipping cost for one particular machine? Shippers are getting paid but it is a big task to move a 300lb. machine across country. You can save money by palletizing yourself, and dropping off directly to a transit center but nobody can care for a pin like NAVL or STI-worth the money with certain pins.

#108 7 years ago

At your high price point of $400, and your low total shipping cost of $10,000 you are saying AF which is a 22 year old game has been shipped 25 times? That's over once a year.

On the high side, you are guessing games get shipped every 4.8 months.

Yay for calculators. I think you know what he was saying even if the math doesn't line up.

#110 7 years ago

Not really. Most sellers will knock a couple hundred bucks off the purchase price, at that point whats another $200 to ship on a $2,000 or $4,000 or $6,000+ purchase? I don't see shipping as a big deal at all.

#111 7 years ago
Quoted from Craig:

I need to sell a couple of pins and am struggling to decide which ones will go. The one I've had the longest and therefore could part with most easily is my Data East Star Wars. I am "underwater" on that pin, having put far more into it than I could reasonably expect to get for it, but I need to make room and am now willing to take a substantial loss.

Do you know if it is a HUO and what are you looking to get out of it, I would love to see pics? Thanks

#112 7 years ago

I would be interested in picking up a mint or near mint Stargate or Mystery Castle at Pinfest in Allentown.

#113 7 years ago

Shit...sorry.

Did not even realize it until now.
Changed the subject totally.

I don't expect one. I prefer to keep my money in my pocket instead of letting the IRS hold on to it.

Looking for a mint or near mint Lost in Space or Independence Day.

#127 7 years ago

Interested in trades. Only have room for 4 games at my house and think my dad doesn't like that I've filled up his house with more games there than at my place. Would package them all. Interested in SS games only. If it's pre1985 then only Williams. Below are in Schaumburg, IL. I'll entertain offers. Don't really feel like putting a value on anything. Shoot me a message if your interested.

Space shuttle- playfield sucks but plays. No sound. Haven't had time to look into.
Stellar wars. Good shape. One issue with one drop target bank where one target completes series
World Cup 1979. Needs new back glass. Plays fine. Needs player 4 display.
Tri zone- in process of rebuilding boards. Ok overall shape. Some wear.
Contact- in process of rebuilding boards. Good shape
Disco fever- play field and cabinet only. Parts machine. PF not good

That FH above sure is tempting, but I am already spread so thin with great new pins on the horizon. This is going to be quite a year for pinball.

I have a spare Pinball Pro speaker set for Data East games that I put on the Marketplace this evening. It's very lightly used, and the price ($100 plus shipping) is about 30% off what they cost new. Let me know if you're interested. Thanks.

#129 7 years ago
