Determining the cost to move a pool table the right way in New Haven
The one thing we would like you to keep in mind is that moving a pool table is an intricate task. Moving a billiard table entails a methodical process which follows the same steps as when the pool table was built in the factory.
Except that in this case, it is in reverse in the sense that it is first carefully disassembled, we will not just take the legs off or move it using coasters.
The pool table is loaded in pieces, in some cases, we can crate if necessary. The billiard table components are then transported to the end location. Finally, we build this billiard table from the ground up in a piece by piece fashion.
We ensure the playing surface is perfectly leveled, this job is complex and extensive given that it requires specialty tools and trained technicians. We take pride in providing certified billiard table installations with a leveling so precise, that we guarantee you will have the best playing experience every time you use it. All of the pool tables we setup are covered under a written service guarantee backed by a national organization.
In our years of experience, we have seen many pool tables that have been ruined because of failed moving attempts by someone with little to no experience. Never try to move it in one piece, this could damage the billiard table, the property where it is moving out of or moving into and most importantly you could end up seriously injured. If a professional pool table mover will not relocate a pool table in one piece, why would you want to try to do it?
Why is moving your pool table in one piece a very bad idea?
Moving the pool table in one piece is a ridiculous idea only needed to be attempted by fools. There are so many pool table brands out there, each manufacturer has different models, not to mention there are companies that already sold out, so there is a possibility that your pool table might be discontinued.
Even if you manage to have your pool table moved in one piece. Your pool table will have to be completely disassembled once in the room where it is to be installed.
Taking the pool table apart before moving is not only a necessary step in making sure that the pool table is setup is done correctly, but also this allows us to inspect the existing cloth for any damage that may be covered.
Doing this gives you the opportunity to keep your billiard table in great looking condition and get the most out of your pool table. We advise you to consider that your billiard table refelting service could be required if the cloth on your table is not in good condition.
There’s a lot of really bad information on the internet!
Videos on YouTube and things of that nature trying to show you how to move the pool table yourself so you can save the money. It’s just a plain bad idea. That pool table was not meant to be moved in one piece, it was built in the factory piece by piece and it was shipped piece by piece and it needs to be installed piece by piece.
Are you still trying to decide if you should buy a pool table right now?
If you have already bought the table and are now trying to figure out how to move it without spending the money after you found the pricing to relocate a pool table correctly? Well, we don’t have any good answers for you.
Often you find that the service for a pool table is going to be comparable to the price, usually, people are anxious to get rid of their pool tables, either because they no longer use them, they have to move out and do not want to spend on the service.
One thing you need to know is if you do try to move the pool table yourself, it’s going to cost you the same amount of money to have us come and fix any problems you cause due to inexperience so it’s best to just put the money into the professionals and save yourself the extra time, headache and embarrassment.
Factors you should also consider when trying to figure out the cost to move a pool table
What you have to think about is that billiard table moves from start to finish are carried out rarely, perhaps once or twice in the time that you own it. So this is an expense that will not come up often and when it does get moved it is better to go with a professional service that can offer a guarantee.
This way all you are looking at is a one-time price for the service and not the additional costs that can result from a faulty installation, damage to the table and/or property and most importantly personal injury.
We often get calls from customers that chose to go with a low-priced service and were either rescheduled, the job was canceled and the table or property was damaged by an inexperienced installer. Please consider this when shopping around.
Pool tables are not often moved if that’s out of your budget and you don’t want to spend the proper amount to have the pool table properly installed and moved you may want to reconsider the pool table in the first place.
