So you own a pool table and plan to move from your current home. You may decide to try and move your pool table on your own. Is this a good decision? No. Pool tables are delicate and incredibly heavy, and moving them requires a tremendous amount of strength and technical skill. It is not a smart move to move a pool table on your own with so many professional movers available.

The following is a list of step that moving pros will take to move your pool table:

    1. Disassemble the Pool Table: In order to move a pool table, it needs to be taken apart. Failing to take it apart might not only result in serious property damage but also puts the movers and bystanders in serious danger.
    2. Moving the Pool Table: For this part of the process, some heavy lifters will be required. Reputable moving professionals will always ensure that they have the proper manpower for the job. The slate on a pool table could weigh upwards of 800 pounds.
    3. Making Room for the Pool Table: Before moving a pool table the area that it will be placed will need to be made ready. If there is thick carpeting in the room, it may need to be removed. The pool table requires a completely level surface and too soft of a ground may not provide the proper support to ensure that the pool table is level.
    4. Reassemble the Pool Table: Professional movers have plenty of experience reassembling pool tables. Every piece must be put back together properly to ensure the game can be played as intended. Even if one piece is not fashioned correctly it can throw the whole game off.

Now that you are familiar with the basics of moving a pool table, you know that moving it on your own may not be the best idea. It is in your best interest to hire a professional moving company that has experience moving pool tables. The moving pros at All Reasons Moving & Storage can help you move your pool table.
