e-go.com.au (http://www.e-go.com.au) - Brilliant..!

I'm quoting my Mega-Tech (on a pallet - 77cm x 80cm x 195cm @ 120kg) from Brisbane to Melbourne (from my work to their Campbellfield depot) and its calculating $120.00..! Mind you its a back load rate so it is cheaper. My Marble Madness depot to depot (Melb > Bris) came in at $170.00 so its still cheap the other way too.

I recently sent my Bartop to Adelaide (Depot to Address) and it came in at about $45.00 delivered.

E-Go are an online offshoot of Hunter Express so if you need to call them, call Hunter Express. ;)

Very happy with their service and they have online tracking too. I asked and they are more than willing to freight pins and arcadies.. :)

Woka will they transport pins on legs, or must they be palleted?

Its all cubic weight, so I suppose that on a pallet would work out cheaper.

No pallet, but well packaged with legs off and head strapped down.

If you have all the details, you can get a quote instantly online.

I should also say that I avoided the extra $35 fee at each end for a truck with a lift-gate, as the sender was able to assist with the loading, and I had a pinball trolly at my end to unload.

I know from experience last Xmas (rescued a pin at the last hour that would have sat in warehouse for a couple of weeks) that they did close down for a couple of weeks over the Xmas break.
Maybe its the same this year. If not its a shame as they are top guys.
