Beware the Elephant House Auctions

Postby jfried1399 » Sun Mar 12, 2017 5:51 pm

Beware the Elephant House. I "won" a TNT Rockola machine back in September and have paid for it plus twice the amount they originally quoted for shipping but they refuse to ship the machine or even return my email

You're not the first to have problems there. Truth is you will get it sorted eventually, most of the time, he is famous for not replying and ignoring questions, keep at him. :dammit:

Where are you shipping to?
It may be best if you organize a crating/ packing company to pick it up on your behalf.
I seldom rely on an auction house to ship, once they have their money, they are not interested!

Thanks. I have emailed him regularly with no result so I felt compelled to inform the pinball/arcade community.

But that's not the point, is it?
Surely, if you've paid for the item and for delivery, it's not unreasonable to expect that the item will be delivered.....and you shouldn't have to wait six months!

did you check his website, his last post dated the 6th." This week and next, we're trying to clear up all outstanding deliveries etc., doing various runs around the country, as well as shipping stuff out"

I did see that. He's had a similar message in the past. You also have to wonder what's going on that he's not having any more auctions for the time being and how many more people are waiting for him to ship. I also just sent him a tweet. I collect Rockola Pinballs and this is a difficult machine to find so I truly hope he does ship the machine. The pure mechanical machines are more in demand but the early EMs are rarer. If he does I'll let you know.

Whereabouts in the country are you? It might just be easier to write a day off and collect if possible..

He says that they have got builders in stripping off the front half of the roof at the E H. Hence no Auctions at present. Until builders start they don`t know how long it will take.
