The well-meaning denizens of the pinball enthusiast corners of the internet all suggested to me in unison "Don't buy from a retailer, you will pay more than the machine is worth." Armed with their seemingly sound advice, I set out to search for our Indiana Jones pinball machines through the smokey crevices and back-alleys of the internet. Craigslist, eBay, Pinside, KLOV. They all contained promising leads that ended in disappointment. Over-priced, poor condition machines, sellers not interested in shipping and a few shady characters later, I discovered The Pinball Company and engaged Brooke for pre-sales question. She was fast, attentive and courteous at every step of the process. In the end, it came down to a well-known arcade distributor or The Pinball Company. The level of service and machine quality advertised by The Pinball Company led me to choose them for our Indiana Jones pinball purchase. The machine was priced comparably to others on the internet but the condition was nearly perfect. Our expectations were exceeded at every turn! An expertly packaged machine (3 blankets, bubble wrap all safely wrapped in layers of plastic) arrived for reasonably-priced curbside delivery sooner than expected. The driver was friendly and courteous, came at the appointed time and was helpful getting the pallet into our garage. Thanks to a neighbor, a dolly, clever instructions and thoughtful packaging from The Pinball Company, we were playing the machine within an hour of delivery.
