    Curious about this as well. Nothing?

    Has anyone used any of these?

    Why don't you use them and let us know how it goes.

    Ive used uship twice and it worked just fine. The pins arrived safe and sound. I only did 2 states over however, if I was to ship something across country Id just use NAVL.

    Since I have a business with a dock/forklift I use USHIP often. If they have the same thing on the other end you can ship a game for as little as $100 at times.

    Quoted from Renegade:

    Probably because he is just trying to get advice before using? What's wrong with asking?

    I believe all he was saying was, it seems no one has tried them. Why don't you be the first and report back to the forum to let us know how it went? Didn't sound like he was trying to be a dick.

    Maybe your right. I thought he was saying it to be be a dick. We're you renegade? If not I apologise

    So I used Uship to transport a single player Bally EM. Had a couple people on the site bidding to ship it. I accepted a low bid/good feedback shipper and received the game five days after winning the bid. I don't plan to ship another game, but if for some reason I did I wouldn't hesitate to use Uship.

    I've used Uship in the past on 3 occasions and all have worked out well.

    Do they offer insurance? Also, how are you shipping them? Legs on or pallet?

    I used UShip to transport an Polaris ATV and it was damaged because the covered truck they used was not tall enough. They let the air of the tires to barely make it fit, but the top of the ATV was still damaged. It was a husband and wife team and were not accountable to anyone (they did not work for a company and were their own boss). The height would probably not be an issue with a pinball machine.

    Did you do anything to resolve it? Curious as to how this works too.

    No it was very dark (around midnight) when it was delivered and I just lived with the damage. Not sure if there could have been any resolution.

    Two pins were shipped legs off, folded up, wrapped and on end. The penny pitch arcade was shipped laying down, and I'm taking bids right now shipping a red zone arcade they said would be shipped laying down.
