Subject: Choosing lanes and equipment to install
about installing 2 or 4 lanes in it. Two lanes is plenty, but I'm
considering a pair of wood and a pair of synthetic.
I could have Brunswick or AMF come in and do the whole job (buy it all from
them and have them install everything). However, I've read about a couple
of companies like Hoge Lumber who are reputed to have high quality product.
What isn't clear from my reading is who to hire to install lanes and
equipment if I don't buy Brunswick or AMF. I could buy ball returns,
pinsetters, foul detectors, and auto-score system from a company like
VanTech. I could get my synthetic pair from DBA or System 300, and my wood
pair from Hoge... I've done some equipment pricing and a little bit of
research, but until I discover what an "independant" installer will cost me,
I can't really make a decision.
So, does anyone know of any reputable (not just reputable, but also a
company with a real reputation for excellence) company I should contact to
ask such questions of? I'm not necessarily looking for the least expensive.
If I make this sort of investment, then I'd like to see the work outlive my
kids and their kids.
Or, is there any great reason to go with one of the big two (AMF or
Brunswick)? This won't be an installation with commercial purposes in mind.
Are they capable of servicing the needs of a private installation?
