    Moving a pool table to a new residence is no trifling matter. Because of their weight and size, they are difficult, and downright dangerous, to maneuver. However, with proper care, the right tools, and patience, it is possible. Additionally, Vision Movers gives you this guide to help you through the process. Therefore, you needn’t worry. Let’s get down to business!

    Moving a pool table to a new residence with professional moving assistance

    If your budget can survive the booking of the professional moving services, like Fort Lauderdale moving services, then we advise you to do so. Carrying all that weight through hallways, doorways, and down or up the stairs by yourself is… well, “tricky” is an understatement.

    Pool table.
    Relocating a pool table can be quite challenging. So, it is best to hire experts.

    Moving a pool table to a new residence by yourself

    Another option is moving your pool table on your own. If your new home is close by, within the same state at the best-case scenario, then you need to know how to safely pull this off. For starters, you need to:

    • Gather up a team of at least 3 friends. You’ll need some muscle power because pool tables are extremely weighty, bulky, complex, and delicate objects.
    • Find the right tools. Transporting a pool table requires you to get a staple remover, flathead screwdrivers, a socket wrench, a power drill, a carpenter’s level and some safety goggles, some thick blankets and bubble wrap for protection, and packing tape. Also, in order not to lose any bits and parts, obtain some plastic bags to keep everything in order.
    • Rent a pickup truck rental. This is a crucial part when you consider the size of a pool table.
    • Think about how it will travel through your home. Take measurements of any doorways, staircases, or hallways inside your current and new residence to make sure it can pass through safely.

    Start your pool table disassembly

    1. Safety first! So, put on your protective goggles.
    2. Prepare moving blankets for safe wrapping, and plastic bags for storing the bits and pieces.
    3. Remove the ball pockets. Use the staple remover or appropriate screwdriver, depending on how they’re secured.
    4. Next, disengage the pool’s side rails. Using the socket wrench, loosen each side rail, then gently remove them.
    5. Move on to the felt. Use the staple remover if it’s stapled. Slowly pry out each staple and fold the felt to avoid any damage. If the felt is glued to your pool table, gently pull the cloth up. Do this in a steady backward motion to avoid stretching it out.
    6. Tackle the slates. This is the most dangerous step when transferring your slate pool table because these slates are extremely heavy (since they’re made out of rock), but still very fragile and easily ruined. You’ll need your power drill to get the screws out. Your helpers to assist you with removing the slate or slates.
    7. Move on to the frame and legs of the pool table. Simply turn the structure upside down and remove each leg and parts of the frame.
    8. Secure each element and carefully pack and load your moving truck.
    Protect yourself when moving a pool table.
    Do not start taking your pool table apart without your safety goggles on.

    Rethink hiring experts

    Once again, be extremely careful when handling the heavy elements, such as the slates. If you’re no longer confident that you can do this by yourself, think again about hiring experts. We understand you’re concerned about your budget, especially if you’re planning on moving to some city where the cost of living is a bit higher than you’re used to. For instance, Hallandale Beach is a bit more expensive than other towns in Florida. Still, keep in mind that there are a lot of options for redefining your budget to eventually be able to hire Hallandale Beach movers. Turning unwanted stuff into cash is one of them. The point is – hiring professionals is a decision you will not regret. Especially when moving complex specialty items such as your pool table.
