Moving a Pool Table . . .
Whether you want to move your table to another room, or to another home, there are certain things to keep in mind before you move your table. Your pool table is usually between 700 to 1100 pounds and can be damaged if not moved properly. Upon initial installation, each piece of slate is carefully leveled to ensure a perfectly flat playing surface.
You should NEVER move the pool table in one piece. The pool table must first be disassembled. If you lift the pool table using the side rails, you will most likely cause the slate to become unlevel or develop an uneven playing surface or it is possible to break the side rails, the legs or the slate. The proper way to move the pool table is to first disassemble the pool table, move the table to the second location in pieces, then carefully reassemble it and reinstall the existing cloth.
We will completely disassemble your table, pack it up, move it to a second address, and assemble the table while getting it precisely level. We take excellent care of the tables that we transport. We pay close attention to make sure the finish doesn’t get scratched, and we use furniture blankets where necessary.
From One Home to Another – No extra charge for stairs on a three-piece slate table.
At this time, we do not move one-piece slate tables.
To determine if your table has one or three pieces of slate, look under the table. If there are two cross supports, then your table has three pieces of slate. Almost all one-piece slate tables have only one cross support in the middle of the table.
Call if you need assistance to find out how many pieces of slate your table has.
