from where? if from the southeast, maybe Jenn May can pick up, she goes up to NC all the time, however, she currently has a borked foot, Donny is heading to Allentown ( i think may 4/5th )

NAVL is the only option i can think of.

hope it's rare. i know i can't trust long distance sellers with all the variables of shipping, and basically relying on 1 out-of-sight seller's honesty.

that being said, if i want a game and it's in texas...well, i'm headed to texas. :) the positive of that is i would fly out, buy a truck, buy my game in-person, drive back to florida, and sell the truck for a profit. :o

and then, NAVL or Beltrann, whatever broker michelle bianchi works for now.

MO is only a 20 hour drive :) Road Trip it!

Fly there ( $200 to st Louis ), Rent a Grand Caravan, Drive back, < 20 Hours.  ( assuming st louis ) ..

Jenn May was just there with her trailer like 2 months ago!

Did you know that you can ship a pinball by airplane, and to any close airport, such as Tampa International Airport?  It's shipped as standby freight, usually takes @2 weeks, and they call when it arrives, picked up at the back shipping terminal.  300-400 last time I shipped one, don't know current rates. Sure beats time there and back, and all the in between stuff....

find out. :) can't hurt to have every option out today.

Fastenal will ship terminal to terminal for a stupid low rate. but I never heard of a cheap air-ship option. :) and 99% of "the general public people" are not willing to drive or pallet or even wrap their damm game. which makes STI/Beltmann a good option, as they come to you, get the game, and blanket/cardboard/shrink wrap the game up at your house.

uship is another good choice for getting people to bid on your ship info, but you may get Bernie in a Volvo. ;D that's all based on feedback on who's driving what and skill levels.

and insure it. every one will tell you they don't use forklifts. but they all do, at transfer terminals.

UShip is definitely a cheap option, but man is it scary. I had one delivery come in a trailer towed by a Winnebago. They said the deliveries were funding their vacation. I had another delivery come in on trailer like you local yard guy would use, including the holes in the floor, dangling tail lights, etc. But I've also had legitimate haulers as well. Michelle is still the best way to go.

First time using STI. How should I wrap it to make sure it stays in the great condition it is now?

Sti uses there own moving blankets and straps
So if you want to protect it better I would
Take pictures before it goes on the truck and cardboard
And shrink wrap the hell out of it
Because it just doesn’t go on one truck
It’s unloaded and reloaded multiple times
Depending on where it’s going
