    Insurance on sited machines

    I believe we have a few operators here? I'll looking at siting my first machine and would very much like to know who existing operators go through for insurance, and exactly what type of insurance did you need?

    Thanks in advance

    20 years ago i paid 42k for a daytona and got my money back in 4 months

    20 years later and i’m like a junkie trying to get the same high - but sadly it’s never going to happen

    no money in it anymore unless you deal in numbers , and by that i mean over 100+ machines

    as for insurance - not many do it but i’ll look up who i use and let you know

    Thanks for your honestly, mate. I know the "Golden Age" is long gone and is never coming back.

    At this stage it's just a single machine, going into a friend's business so his clients can play pinball, they can play pinball, and I get some "free advertising" for my other services and a bit of pocket change along the way.

    The real question is what is the insurance going to cost me...

    Thanks for the tips. I'm re-organising my own insurance because of the way the business is branching out so I'll see how much it will cost to add that to all the others things I'm having to work out, vs trying to get it on his insurance.

    Nothing is ever easy...
