Some strong opinions against UPS. Why is FedEx so much better?

FedEx freight is the way to go and take it to them to package and ship!
Costs more but it does put the liability of packaging on them and insure for total value!
Prevents the "You packaged it wrong" scenario if damage does occur!
Just my opinion for what it is worth!
What slot machine are you shipping if I can ask, just curious!

I’m buying a machine and getting instructions for seller. I bought a Bursting Cherry and will be taking a stab at my first restoration.

That will be a nice little project for you as a first restoration!
Mill's are fairly straightforward to work on!
Have fun with your new "Toy" when you receive it!

About packing that Slot. Think of NASA and its "lander" package.. Upon arrival the outside package was designed to bounce to avoid damage. I'll suggest lots of packing with material that will take a hit and bounce back to continue protection, because in transit it will have many chances to be kicked around. Imagine your box dropping off the back of a truck or falling over from a hand truck incident. That's the target. It has to be solid and not be able to rock around inside its container. And this can be done. Lots of great ideas have already been posted. Great ideas. Best of luck.

Mo to

Yes, it looks like it mostly needs a good cleaning but will be a great learning experience to take apart and put back together. Looking forward to it!
