Moving Your Pinball

Finding someone who will take as good a care of your machine as you would yourself is a hard task. National Carriers will treat you as another customer and usually require the pinball machine packed on a pallet for ease of transport. These are then stacked in a van with many other items and minimal care is taken of them. We know we have experienced this first hand and then try and claim on their insurance for damage ...  good luck.

Martin Palfreyman

Martin runs a delivery and collection service that spans the whole of the UK and is second to none. It's a family run business with family values.

Once your machine is picked up, it is wrapped in blankets and then securely stored before the van is moved.

Delivery of your machine is by prior arrangement, the machine will be delivered to your property and provided access is reasonable the machine will be actually be taken into the property. National firms will usually only deliver to the door step and no further, leaving the unpacking to be done out in the open and at the mercy of the elements.

Area of Coverage : The UK

Cost : Normally £ 85 for collection / delivery but is dependant on mileage to be traveled.

Availability : Contact Martin for a quote

We have had first hand experience of Martin services and would not hesitate to recommend him to move any pinball / arcade machine, hence his inclusion on this page.
