1992 Bally The Addams Family - SOLD

Check List When Buying A Pinball

Pinball

This game has been restored finishing on Easter 2013. New ramp, new display, new LEDs, new posts, new rubbers, Cliffy protectors, new bookcase motor, new thing coil magnet, new magnets and individual fuses to protect the magnets, new coils as appropriate. It is beautiful. The cabinet is very pretty too.

This is the most popular pinball machine. It is the most produced game but very hard to find. Once someone gets it in their collection, they never get rid of it. It now looks great and will be reliable for decades to come.

The pictures have been taken with the glass off to get a better picture.

Left backbox is nice. Flash didn't get it. I left this photo as is (no white out of background) because I thought my two Addams Family games side by side looked cool. I have not started restoring the one on the right yet.

My great photography skills got the flash right in the middle of the backbox.

The crank on the bookcase below the playfield is broke. This will be replaced. The ramp will be replaced. There is slight discoloration on the left clouds above the left mansion because of prior magnet burn. Plastics will be replaced. Cliffy protectors added. When done this will be a great game.

Virginia Sales Tax

Virginia sales tax is currently 6.0%. Sales tax for in-state orders applies to machines and parts. It does not apply to the delivery or repair services.

Warranty

As of August 1, 2014, we will no longer provide a warranty with our pinballs unless you purchase a separate warranty from us. A 1 year warranty is $500 or pay as you go if you even need it. If you buy it directly from us and take it home yourself, you will be inspecting it to ensure it works. If we deliver, we will ensure that it works 100% when delivered.

Reasons You Should Let Us Deliver Your Pinball (or Another Machine)

  1. We will NOT provide a warranty for the machine since we cannot be assured that a problem did not happen when you transported the machine. (As of August 1, 2014, we will no longer provide a warranty with our pinballs unless you purchase a separate warranty from us. A 1 year warranty is $500 or pay as you go if you even need it. If you buy it directly from us and take it home yourself, you will be inspecting it to ensure it works. If we deliver, we will ensure that it works 100% when delivered.)
  2. We take responsibility for any damage that may occur during the delivery process.
  3. We professionally set up the machine, connect all the connectors, attach the legs, head, etc. and ensure that the pinball works properly. If anything is out of adjustment due to moving the machine, we can fix it in a few minutes as compared to having to come to your house later and charging you a trip fee and repair charge.
  4. If anything major is out of adjustment, we can order parts and repair. This hardly ever happens but it could and you and the machine are protected.

Delivery Options

We are currently set up for local delivery only within the Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, and North-Eastern West Virginia area. If you are interested in shipping the pinball machine, we will contact a shipper. You will pay all crating and postage costs.

If you would like us to deliver and set up within 50 miles of Purcellville, the charge is $300; within 100 miles $475. The delivery charge includes delivery to a first floor or basement level if walk-out.

We will not sell you a game/deliver the game if the only entrance to your basement is an inside the house staircase. They are too narrow. Plus we have to ensure we don't mess up carpet or wood. It just isn't worth it.

You may also come and pick up the machine from our location.
