What You Need To Know About Moving Your Pool Table

If you have a passion for playing pool, you’ll want your pool table to come along on your next move.

And transporting it carefully is key to ensure its safe arrival.

Pool is mostly a game of precision. An improper installation can prove to throw off your game. The two most important factors to consider when moving a pool table in Frisco, TX are the disassembly and reassembly points.

The average pool table weighs between 650 and 900 pounds, and ranges from seven feet to nine feet in length.  A pool table may seem large, bulky and thus, not fragile. But in fact a pool table can prove to be fragile, especially once you start taking it apart and moving it.

Disassembling a pool table requires:

  • Removing the corner and side pocketsMoving Pool Table in Dallas
  • Detaching the rails
  • Removing the felt
  • Separate the slate from the table
  • Take apart the legs and frame

Getting the table up and out of the room can be time-consuming and frustrating if you don’t frequently do it.

Reassembling the table generally consists of putting all of the pieces back together. You’ll also need to make sure the table is level.

In most cases, you’ll want to bring in professional help. And if you opt to try it yourself, ask friends to help move the heavy pieces and label all of the parts.

Hiring Help

There are movers that advertise the moving of pool tables specifically. Designer Pool Table Services moves pool tables.

And while some moving companies will help you with the disassembly of a pool table, others may request that a pool table specialist prepare the pieces for a move. They might also ask to have a third-party help with the reassembly of it at your new place.

If stairs are involved to move the pool table, the total cost may be increased. Also, if you’re moving to a different state or across the country, expect to pay higher charges than what you would spend for a local move.

Before taking your pool table to your next home, make sure there’s a spot where it will fit comfortably.

Assuming the typical cue stick is 58 inches in length, you should have at least five feet of extra space surrounding your table in every direction.

If the new place won’t have room for your pool table, but you still want to keep it for future use, storage may be the best route. To keep everything in good condition, wrap all of the pieces and use a wood crate.
