Tips for safely moving home pool tables

Pool table

Moving houses is certainly not an easy task to partake in. It takes a lot of time, effort, and planning to make sure everything goes well. However, if you have large and heavy furniture and objects at your home like pool tables, the moving process will certainly be even more challenging.

Measure everything

A pool table removal requires precision in measurements if you’re going to do it yourself. Measuring every corner and curve of your space, as well as the pool table itself, is crucial in successfully moving the table from one place to another. By doing so, you already know if the pool table will fit through a doorway or not. This will save you time and effort. Moreover, if your place is a little bit tight, you can easily draw up a solution on how to move it if you have the exact measurements.

Take it apart

Take a picture of every angle of your pool table so you have an idea of how it should look like when you assemble it again. Make sure to label every part you take off and carefully place it in a secure and cushioned box. For this step, you need to have the tools at hand. This includes screwdrivers, power drills, dollies, and special pool table lifts. 

Removing the felt lining during pool table removal requires the utmost care and patience. Small damage to this will render the felt unusable. Thus, you don’t want to do it if you’re in a hurry or are not confident with your skills. 

Choose the location

Before even arriving at your new place, make sure you’ve already figured out where you will put it. Moving the pool even a few feet away is still difficult. Thus, make sure once you’re moving it to the new place, you’re already decided on where to place it.

Hire professional movers

Do you not have the strength or time to do it yourself? When it comes to moving bigger furniture and objects from your home, the best thing to do is to leave it to the professionals. Pool table removal, especially, is tricky if you don’t have enough people and tools at your disposal. If done improperly, you can end up damaging your pool table in the process. If you need to move heavy objects, it’s best to hire professionals to do it for you.
