We Are Queensland's leading supplier of Pinball machine sales and hires from new ones like Spiderman and the Simpson's Pinball Party to Classic's like Addam's Family and Twilight Zone you are dealing with people who have the knowledge and the parts and resources to get the job done. We also buy used pinballs as well.
Be wary of buying pinballs that have been imported from overseas ( you can tell them by the fact that they generally have three coin slots) they have been brought in at a cheap price because they have been poorly maintained and in most cases have been butchered in the electronics, and can cost big $$$ later to sort these out.
There are many places to buy a Pinball machine from but, have they been in the Business for over 18 years in the same area. Can they offer you back up service and parts in stock? at Austral Amusement Co our pinball machines, are throughlly striped down to a bare playfield and cleaned any broken bits replaced or in the case of the top plastics if not available we can repair them. then new globes and rubbers installed and then rebuilt that is why people keep ringing us for their games requirements from referals of friends. Be careful of buying pinballs on line second hand as there are people out that say that they have been done up but 9 times out of 10 they are not and they can be poor quality imports.
We may not be the cheapest but you can be assured of the quality, since 1990, that's why we are still in the business.
We have a large range of parts for sale in our on line store under Pinball spare parts
Q. What price do pinballs machines start at to buy?
A. At about $1700.00 and up tp $8000.00 for a new one.
Q. i can remember when pinnies sold for $500.00.
A. yes we all can but like everything involving supply and demand the market dictates the price
