If you are going to try and move a pool table yourself, learning what to do is your initial issue. You will be completely disassembling the pool table, doing a bit of heavy lifting with a couple of strong friends, and re-assembling it while making it perfectly level.

We have the expert experience to carefully take it apart, label everything,  pack every integral part, and then assemble the pool table in your new home.

Do It Yourself

You could do it yourself. You just need to be a handy, organized person, with above average mechanical abilities, special tools, and some strong friends. Really, billiard tables are super-heavy. The main surface is rock. Also, keep in mind that taking it apart is much more complicated than it looks. It is not simple like a dining room table. Removing the felt from the slate is a tricky process that could leave one tearing their hair out. Putting it back on is as well. A pool table is probably one of the hardest objects you could move. It’s bulky, heavy, wide, and very delicate. This Do-It-Yourself approach can have a dangerous affect to you and to your pool table itself.

Many make the mistake of attempting to treat it like a sofa or hutch by calling a bunch of friends to help, and then twisting it every which way to fit in the doorway. Unfortunately, these actions often result in injury to you or your buddies, and you can mess up the slate. If you are really curious about how correctly move a pool table, the steps you should follow are below. Please read thoroughly and carefully. Atlanta Pool Table Movers will guide you through the process.
