I forget the size but it's a standard one that's in most bit sets.

I got a Street Fighter pinball into my 06 Polo (4 doors, more whores) so anything is possible

I don't think you would get a new net city into a 206, I barely got the Astro city into a Skoda estate all disassembled.

Good point, i had to disassemble it to get it out of the house and disassemble it to get it into work.
So made sense to leave it disassembled for the 3 flights of stairs.

Most candies will need the CP to come off to get through a standard door.

It's around €80 to rent a van for a day from Enterprise rent-a-van and you could save more by pre-paying and moving your car insurance over to the van for the day.

Picked up a T8 LED tube for the Naomi on Ebay, its more or less a direct replacement for the original fluorescent tube - you just need to remove the starter.

Thats a good idea, might see to find a UK seller - same tube setup in the Atomswaves I think?

Was just talking to some people on discord about arcades in Ireland in general.
- I bet we could compile a whole entire list of cabs/machines left in Ireland and it'd be very short, not counting token or private collection.

You have no idea amazing things here if you go looking, and lots of them. An awful lot of arcade machines were made here in ireland, atari, Namco, Sega etc

If you managed to get a list of those in personal collections I'd imagine it would far exceed any numbers on site.

On the plus side, at least it means there is still a lot left in the country, just in private hands.

Moving arcade stuff soon and enterprise were looking for 150 a day (for the large Van size). You'd be hard pressed to get 2 machines into the smaller Van, and that's a big maybe. That's booking in advance too.

I've always used Vantasks.ie myself. Have moved my two cabs for me three times now. They price by time, so a clock starts from when they arrive at your door and then ends as soon as they unload the last item. (Seem to be happy enough to move stuff at off peak hours to make everything a bit quicker)

Could be as easy looking at a man with van ad. I know a few lads who do it after work etc and do it for cash prices.

A truck with a tail lift is ideal though

Yep that's the best for local/short moves alright. Standard cabinets are handy enough to move around, 2 man job if stairs are involved. Bigger machines are a different story, tail lift is necessary
