Shipping a game? HELP PLEASE!!

Archived from groups: rec.games.video.arcade.collecting (More info?)

Hello everyone. I just recently sold my pride and joy Quantum arcade
machine. I need to ship it to the person that bought it, but do not
know who to ship it through. Does anyone have any suggestions as to a
good freight company to use? How about door-to-door companies? What
should I expect to pay for shipping? What do they require as far as
packing or protecting the cabinet? Any help is appreciated, I have
never shipped one before. This will be shipping out of Northern
Virginia if that matters.. Thanks in advance!

    They'll pick it up, blanket wrap it and get it on its way. I've used them a
    dozen times with no major problems.

    More importantly, why are YOU paying to ship it?? It's generally about $250
    to the midwest and more $$ the farther it goes from there.

    I would STRONGLY recommend at least stretch-wrapping the gane. NAVL has
    been terrible lately about putting shipping tape directly on the games.
    Also, be sure to take good pictures before it leaves in case you have to
    file a claim.
