You could try http://www.borderexpress.com.au/ and just ask for a single pallet rate.

beleive it or not try TNT
i got a really good quote from them.. mainly because i used our company account which uses them daily so we got a really good rate..
but if you know any decent sized companies, see who they use and chances are you will get a good rate :)

If you are relatively close to Geelong (which I believe you are) and you can get it to them, try Crichton Removals. Great bunch of guys and very cheap. Phone number is (03) 5272 1072. Ask for Daryl, he moved a large item for me before at a very cheap price.

I say we start with 20

take it to the next member's place (one is left as payment) and so on up the eartern seaboard

I think with 20 we could get at least one to Trav.

Seriously, try COPE in Melbourne. I had a Black Hole moved depot to depot (Melb to Sydney) and it cots me 90 bucks

as for removalists, I have used Chess for two EM's from Perth to Adelaide door to door and it was about $400, but then I have got quotes from a variety of companys including Chess from Canberra to Adelaide for 1 pin and it was going to be $800+, go figure.

Anyone live near Berry, NSW - I might have a pin I need checked out :D

if anyone rings COPE make sure to tell them game will already be packed (assuming your gonna pack it), otherwise they charge a lot more if they have to pack it. :cry
they wont ship an unpacked game as they dont want other goods in truck damaged as a result of unpacked item bashing against it :x
i sent a pinball picked up from my joint in ADELAIDE to dudes house in VIC metro area last month for $161 :D
