Most people don’t know the importance of hiring professionals to move their pool table. From a professional point of view, moving a pool table requires specialty. Most local and national movers don’t offer this service. There are specific moving companies that offer this service. This is where a company such as Sydney Piano and Pool Table Services will come in.
Pool table movers have the expertise of installing pool tables, disassembling, assembling, and moving pool tables. This is why it’s advisable to hire pool table movers instead of local movers to move your pool table. If you hire local movers, due to lack of experience, your pool table could get damaged.
Most marketable pool tables today are referred to as a 3-piece slate design. This is because of the construction of the play surface area of the pool table. The 3 pieces of slate that are attached to the frame level the playing surface. Before moving this type of pool table, you must disassemble. Please note that if you move without taking it down into pieces, it will be damaged.
Disassembling this type of pool table requires special tools. Most people do not have this type of tool; only professional do. The tools needed to perform this job include screwdrivers, drill, electric staple gun, hardwood wedges, just to name a few.
What is involved when moving a pool table?
At Sydney Piano and Pool Table Services, we have been providing the most reliable pool table moving services in the Sydney area. We have been in the moving industry for over 15 years with a 100% customer satisfaction rating. To us, customer satisfaction is key. We know how valuable your pool table is, and our priority is to protect it during the entire move.
Before moving your pool table, the first step is we start by removing the pockets. The pockets are designed with different materials, from leather to plastic or rubber. After removing the pockets, we mark the placement of the rails while disassembling them from the playing surface. The felt will then be carefully removed, ensuring that slate framing is in good condition.
Once the felt is removed, the pool table frame will be disassembled in order to fit through the doorways or staircase. Before starting the trip to your new location, the pool table will be carefully loaded into the truck. The slate will then be placed on the wall and double strapped using mounting ropes. The same case applies to the frame.
The pool table rails will then be securely wrapped in moving blankets. This is the last process before departure. Once we get to the new location, your valuable item will be carefully unloaded.
The frame will be placed in your desired area. We advise you to place it in a room that fits the minimum pool table room requirements.
Once the frame is placed, the slate will then be attached in the same position and leveled. The slate will then be cleaned to ensure there is no dirt remains on the felt. The rails and pockets will be re-attached and lined up to the playing surface. Lastly, the pool table will be leveled.
