Moving Pins

Post by OnTilt on Thu Feb 07, 2013 6:36 pm

Has anyone ever used a moving service to move pinball machines? I've managed to get 2 of them downstairs with a buddy. It's through somewhat of a tight turn on the stairs (plenty of height and enough width). Wiped out a month ago in a parking lot and the lower back has been in pain since.

Sorry to hear about your back man. Hope you feel better soon! There is nothing worse than back pain!

I've never had to use a moving service but I hear the straps they use for moving appliances work really well with pinball machines. The other thing to think of is the tight turn on the stairs, I'm not sure how well the straps would work in that case. You could do like malibu-ss does and rest the pinball machine in the drywall for a few mins as you go around the corner. Razz

Thanks prock, but don't feel too bad for me, I've got good work benefits that I should be using (chiropractics, massages, etc).

Moving services seem to range from about $100-150 to move a pinball in or out of the basement.

I have never used a moving company,but I have used the straps.

I do not really like using the strap,unless you are familiar with how to use them properly.If you do not,it is probably worse than without
