PINBALL & ARCADE CLASSICS
EVERY SINGLE ONE OF OUR PINALLS ARE EXPERTLY RECONDITIONED & INCLUDE DELIVERY AND AN IN HOME WARRANTY (IF LOCAL) OR PHONE & PARTS SUPPORT IF SHIPPED OUT OF OUR AREA. WE CONSIDER OUR SERVICE AREA TO BE PUEBLO TO THE DENVER METRO AREA...WE WILL GO FURTHER FOR A FUEL SURCHARGE (ASPEN, BRECKENRIDGE, ETC)
MOST NEW, IN THE BOX PINBALLS HAVE 2-4 LEVELS OF TRIM AND THE PRICE REFLECTS EACH LEVEL. AS PRICES HAVE ESCALATED WITH BOTH NEW AND REFURBISHED PINS, WE ARE NOW OFFERING TWO LEVELS OF RESTORATION TO EMULATE THE BUSINESS MODEL OF NEW. THIS KEEPS COSTS LOWER FOR THOSE THAT DON'T FEEL THE NEED TO HAVE A "PERFECT" PINBALL COSMETICALLY, WHERE "NICE" WILL DO. AND FOR THOSE THAT WANT AS CLOSE TO NEW AS POSSIBLE, YOU CAN SELECT THAT TRIM IF YOU DESIRE.
WE HAVE PRO AND PREMIUM. NEITHER HAS ANYTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH HOW WELL THE GAME WILL PLAY, OR HOW RELIABLE IT WILL BE! THESE ARE SIMPLY COSMETIC ELEMENTS SO DON'T FEEL YOU NEED TO SPEND MORE TO GET A NICE, RELIABLE PINBALL FROM US. PRO WILL GENERALLY BE BETTER THAN MOST PLACES OFFER (WE HAVE ALMOST 40 YEARS EXPERIENCE...I WOULD HOPE BY NOW WE ARE A BIT BETTER AT THIS THAN LESS EXPERIENCED SHOPS). PREMIUM WILL BUMP IT UP, IN SOME CASES CONSIDERABLY, COSMETICALLY BY REPLACING LESS CRITICAL COSMETIC ELEMENTS. IT IS VERY HARD TO COMPARE A "SHOPPED/REFURBISHED" PINBALL FROM SHOP A TO SHOP B, SO HOPEFULLY THIS WILL HELP AND EVEN THE PLAYING FIELD A BIT REGARDING PRICING.
BOTH DESIGNATIONS, PRO OR PREMIUM, YOU CAN EXPECT:
A pinball that has been torn down to the wood. All the parts have been removed and cleaned. All contacts and mechanics have been adjusted. Any bad parts have been replaced. All rubber rings replaced with quality replacements. All burned out bulbs replaced (sometimes with LED's...ask if that is important to you). Likely will have the coin door refinished. Any major broken plastics replaced if available and if not, repaired or disclosed to you (and photos sent) so you can decide how big an issue that will be. Any broken ramps replaced if available and if not, again, we will disclose it so you can decide. Playfield thoroughly cleaned and waxed. Chrome polished. Game reassembled. A technician will go through it and make sure it works as it should. Flippers likely rebuilt if not working to spec (on Premium, they are replaced). Any other mechanical parts that are not working as they should will be replaced or repaired. New glass installed if current one was scratched (usually they are). You get an in home warranty with any Pro or Premium game; if shipped we will send you any necessary parts and provide phone support. If we do our job right, there are few if any technical issues. Games were built to be very reliable in high volume use. If rebuilt properly, they will continue to be. There are exceptions, but we avoid bringing those titles in for sale. There are too many good games to fuss with the few that are not reliable. Generally, we find it easier to work on the classic pins pre 2000 than the newer one's with far more electronic tech...and more reliable too!
PREMIUM: The following is in addition to the above. The goal of a Premium refurbished pinball is to make it as new as reasonably possible, with no budget constraints. We will note specifics depending on the game, but in general the cabinet will be wood filled where required, sanded and brand new factory graphics installed (in effect you then get a brand new game as far as the cabinet is concerned). This makes a tremendous difference. The playfield MAY have been replaced, or a Hard Top installed (brand new top side). Again, we will note that next to the game title. Playfield will feature brand new LED lighting throughout. Side rails will likely be replaced unless in very good condition. Flippers will be replaced, including the assembly below. Coin door will be refinished unless in very good original condition. Legs refinished in almost all cases, or replaced. We will be much more particular about the plastics; if available they will likely be replaced. New glass installed. Etc. Again, the game will look as new as possible. Our tech will be a lot more particular about any electronic elements that while working now, may need to be looked at in a couple years, ie, we will replace anything that looks like it's nearing the end of it's useful life, including the display, which you cannot always do with a market priced game where you need to be as low as possible. If you are on the OCD side, and many of our clients are, this is likely the route you will want to take. Price difference really depends on the ultimate cost of the parts and additional labor, but it will likely be less if done while the game is already apart. It will likely include a longer warranty. We will discuss the specifics as a title is selected.
Selecting a game can be challenging, especially with a family, so if you reallly don't know what to get, that's where you will likely find us to be of great assistance. I've sold hundreds and hundreds of games over the years, and am familiar with just about every title there is. I have been doing this for so long that I pretty much know what will and won't likely be fun for your demographic two years from now, not just the first couple of weeks. This is based on many years of feedback and a couple of questions I will ask you. So, I'm happy to help and I will also stand behind anything I recommend! If when delivered you don't like the game, back on the truck it goes and you will receive a full refund if anything has been paid to date. If you take delivery, you have four weeks for your family to play the game. If you feel the wrong choice was made, no problem...we will help you pick something else and you can keep what you have until we bring the replacement. No restocking or re-delivery fee! No risk to you...we want selecting a pin to be fun, with no stress about "what if" the wrong game is chosen. With all the pictures and pros/cons list we will send you, people usually get it right the first time.
If this is your first pinball purchase please note: with pinball, you generally get what you pay for. Please know that we spend whatever is necessary to bring a game back to "as new" condition as possible. We don't try to have the absolute cheapest prices; we strive to give you a very nice product at the best price we can as you will likely own it for a long time. If that's what you are looking for, I know you will be very pleased doing business with us. We have found taking shortcuts isn't worth it considering all the moving parts associated with the typical pinball machine. We just don't do that here. If you are having us ship your game out of our area, hopefully that will make you that much more comfortable!
