PINBALL MACHINE REPAIR


Michigan Pinball Machine Repair

We Repair Pinball Machines made from 1940 and up.  We can come to your home and fix your game or you can bring the game to us.   If you have a machine that was working good and something went wrong, then in home repair is a good option.  If you have a pinball machine that has many issues or hasn't worked in a long time, then bringing it to our shop may be more economical.

To schedule a repair please call Parker at 248-361-9349 or email parker@michiganpinball.com 


Pinball Machine Repair Frequently Asked Questions

Question: How much does pinball machine repair cost?
Answer: In home repair has an $80 service fee.  This includes travel to your home and the 1st 1/2 hour of repair time.   During the first half hour we will diagnose the game and give and estimate as to the total time needed for repair.  If you decide not to proceed with the repair then the total fee will be only $40 - just to cover travel time and fuel. 

Question: How far away will you travel?
Answer: In general we cover the following Michigan areas.  Detroit Metro, Ann Arbor, Jackson, Lansing, Flint, Plymouth,  Livonia, Brighton, Milan, Irish Hills, Adrian, Farmington Hills, West Bloomfield.  And other sourrounding areas.

Question: Will you tell me how much my machine is worth?
Answer: Yes we will give you an estimate as to its value both "as is" and "working."  We also purchase machines "as is" if that is the route you choose to take.

Question: How Long will it take for you to come to my home or location:
Answer: It depends on scheduling.  Sometime we get backed up due to the volume of repairs.  In general, it will be between 1 day and 3 weeks.  Of course, we can set up a specific appointment time and date.

Question: Do you bring parts?
Answer: We bring common parts needed to repair your game.  If a part is needed that we don't bring we may need to order it and return to install it.

Question: Are you afraid of dogs, kids, messy homes, etc?
Answer: Not at all.  We will treat you and your home with respect and honor your privacy. 

Question: Can I fix it myself?
Answer: Maybe.  It depends on the problem and your skill set and knowledge.  A great place to start is by looking at the pinwiki at www.pinwiki.com. 


Question: Is it worth it to fix my game?
Answer: That all depends on your preferences.  Sometimes it may not make economic sense to repair a pinball machine but owners will repair it anyway because of family memories, etc.  Pinball Machines are hard to find and move so if you already have one and enjoy it, it is probably worth fixing.

Question: I can't find the keys, can you still fix the game?
Answer: Yes, we can get into the game and also replace the lock and key.

Question: I want get rid of my game, will you buy it?
Answer: Yes, we buy pinball machines of all eras and will come and get it.  See We Buy Pinball Machines for more info.

Question: What if you show up and can't fix it?
Answer: Every once in a while we come across a game we can't figure out.  Many times the problems are obvious but sometimes they can be very very obscure.  If we can't diagnose your game in a reasonable time then there some options.
Regardless, if we can't fix it, there we only will charge $40 for travel and fuel.
