Hi I’m new here. I would appreciate any advice on pinballs to buy please. Although the idea of loan also appeals to me. I live in the Essex area. Thank you in advance. Warran.*BASIC RULES*Keeping the machine in good clean order is the responsibility of the borrower.
These are the rules I have quickly come up with and an very open to change these as requested.
Proof of residence and offline contact details should be provided / ID etc should be provided by the borrower.
Minor faults are the responsibility of the borrower.
Accidental Damage is the responsibility of the borrower
The individual terms of each machine can be worked out between the lender and the borrower
Natural wear and tear and failures, parts should be covered by the lender but could be fitted by the borrower.
Loan machines that are loaned for the purpose of restoration works - all parts will be paid for by the lender.
It is suggested that a photographic record is kept of the general condition of the machine at the point it is collected by the borrower to alleviate disputes later.
The main reason for this is so we can have a lot of fun playing machines we either couldn't afford to buy or to help out another member who doesn't have the space. Please respect others property accordingly... These are *NOT* cheap toys.
In the case of theft or serious damage not caused by natural wear and tear then all costs and repairs will be covered by the borrower.
If you are not a technical person and something goes wrong, no worries there is going to be someone local to you that will only be too glad to help you for a good mug of coffee and a sandwich, especially if the person you loaned the machine from isn't local.
Transport is the responsibility of the borrower unless otherwise arranged. Just be reasonable, offer fuel money if you are having one delivered. Use a courier if needed, there are a few that specialise in Pinballs.
Most of all use common sense and be honest.

Best bet is to get yourself to as many comps, league meets as you can. Introduce yourself, get known by people and there may well be the offer of a loan.How does pinball machine loaning work? What costs are involved. I would love to buy my own table but thinking it might be more realistic to be open to a loan arrangement for starters?

Just wanted to ask about PAT Testing? I was browsing some older threads on here regarding pinball loans and the need to have this done came up a few times.
I have a table arriving in the next few days on a month’s loan. Yippee!
It was a pleasant B’Day surprise arranged on the sly by my Mrs.
As far as I know only the fee and delivery details have been discussed but she wouldn’t have raised the issue/need of a PAT Test.
Is this something I should contact the table owner about in advance and do you have any other recommended questions I should clarify with them before I take delivery of the table.
My head has been in the clouds due to the surprise and thrill of having a table at home, only now realising there may be considerations to be agreed up front.
