When attempting a pool table move yourself, figuring out what to do is your initial issue. You will be completely dismantling a pool table, doing some heavy lifting with a couple of strong people. You will then be installing it while getting it perfectly level. While it is possible to take on the job of getting a pool table moved with some help, you should seriously consider hiring professionals. Chicago Pool Table Movers has great professional installers who have moved each type of billiard table from complex ball return tables to simple furniture style tables. We have the expert experience to cautiously take it apart, catalogue, and pack every part and then re-install the table into your house.

Do It Yourself

You could do it yourself. Being a handy, detail oriented person, with good carpentry abilities, strong friends, and some tools. Really, billiard tables are super-heavy. The main surface is rock. Keep in mind that dismantling a billiard table is more complicated than it seems. Its more complicated than a simple piece of furniture. Removing the felt from the slate is a complicated process that could leave one dumbfounded. Putting it back on is every bit as difficult. A pool table is presumably one of the hardest things that you could move. It’s wide, heavy, bulky, and surprisingly intricate.

This Do-It-Yourself approach could be dangerous to you and to the pool table itself. It is common to make the mistake of trying to treat it like a hutch or dresser by getting several friends involved in helping, and end up twisting it every which way to fit through the door. Regrettably, these types of actions often end up with an injury to you or any of your buddies, and you can warp the slate or even break a component. If you are really interested in how to properly move a pool table, the steps you should follow are below. Read thoroughly and carefully. Chicago Pool Table Movers will direct you through this process.
