    Air Road Direct

    http://www.airroaddirect.com.au

    8 machines received from 3 separate locations (QLD metro and country to WA metro) without any damage. Delivery took 5-6 days from memory.

    Pinball was $225 (QLD metro)
    Astro City was $350ish (QLD country)
    60kg Vending machines (same size as a small arcade machine) were $250 each (QLD country)

    By far the best freight company I have used so far.

    Aladdins on the Move

    This is the company that has recently advertised its services on eBay.

    I had a very good experience with them, and I would recommend them for your pinball / arcade equipment needs.

    Two pinballs, dismantled, bubble wrapped and ready to pick up from Sydney to melbourne = $352 (or $176 each).

    If the pinnies are not dismantled, the price increases to about $250 each (please check with them first).

    The machines arrived without a scratch, and I did see them blanketed and strapped to the truck = very professional.

    The owners = Garry & Linda were great to deal with, and the drivers were very helpful with updates throughout the day on their progress.

    The only downside was that the delivery was one week late because of unforeseen circumstances, but that was not an issue for me. The machines arrived safely and that's the main thing.

    The driver mentioned to me that the owner, Garry, is a pinball and arcade fanatic who understands the "Stress" we go through for our machines. They plan on working more and more with us for our transportation requirements...

    Fully recommended !

    Last year I used Chess Moving to transport 4 pins (3 were widebodies) from a place 20 minutes out of Adelaide to my house 200kms south of Perth. I shopped around and they were by far the cheapest at $671.00. That did not include packaging or insurance because the owner packed them for me (did a shit job though) and I got insurance through a broker because it was cheaper.
    Anyway they did a great job and I would use them again. These people are used to shipping pianos and antiques etc so that was good enough for me.

    I just had a maximvs maga machine transported from Adelaide to Melbourne for $200


    I used Tea Tree Gully Removals & Storage Ph: (08) 8260 3477



    It was picked up from the ebay sellers address and brought to the Melbourne wharehouse where I picked it up. I was not fussy on delivery time and was happy to wait (all of 3 days). Basically they popped it into a container with another load to Melb.

    For $200 for the size of the machine it was very good. Most prices I got were $700.

    And in case you are wondering the machine cost me $360
