HOW WE SOURCE
We source our games carefully: Pinball machines are now bought in un-restored from selected European suppliers. We now carry out all the restoration work. We no longer buy games from the USA due to the very low value of the Pound Sterling post-Brexit.
At Pinball creative we take our time to find the right pinball table. We have a list of trusted European suppliers who love pinball as much as we do. Unfortunately, like all industries it takes time to build up a trusted list of dealers or agents. Some people dealing in this great hobby are simply in it for the money and we’ve learnt that to our detriment. We want you to enjoy pinball and have the fewest amount of problems possible. Most British pinball operators in the 60′s and 70′s ran the games into the ground. Few were left in good condition. This is why we import 70% of our pinball machines from outside the UK. We have an un-restored stock of around 30 pinball machines so just call and ask to see if we have the game you want. You can check out our current stock on our news page "Games in stock".
You can contact us and ask us to source your ideal pinball game. Bear in mind we only deal in games from 1947 (the first flipper game) to 1981 (when games started to talk) and we tend to concentrate on Ems Pinball Machines (Electro Mechanical) machines although we often have some early SS t(Solid State) Bally pinball games in stock. We do not deal in any game post 1982 sorry. Pinballs started changing rapidly in the early 80s. They became too gimmicky for our refined tastes and the quality of production started to go downhill. The masters of design like Wayne Neyens became less involved and the industry changed. Our passion is for pinballs of the golden era between early 1960's and mid 1970s. We could deal in later games, but if your heart isn't in it.........
