You can expect to answer a few preliminary questions before getting a quote from your pool table moving company. You’ll want to be prepared with the size of your table, the year the table was made, and also how many slates your pool table has. Generally, pool tables have 3 heavy slates, but some older tables may have 1 large slate that is extremely heavy. If you have an older pool table, the price may go up since it’ll require 3-5 movers instead of 1-2 movers. The moving company may want to do a walk-through prior to quoting to get a better idea of how complicated the move may be. Generally, the movers will be considering the size, distance, and difficulty of the relocation. Once in agreement on pricing, the movers will show up on time, and prepare a game-plan. This may require them to move items out of the pathway, and remove doors. Once the game plan is set, the movers will start to disassemble your pool table, and safely move it to their moving truck. During this time, the moving crew will ensure that all table items are covered in furniture padding, and are safe for transit. The team will also separate any hardware, and label for re-assembly. Once the table is moved safely to the truck, they will ensure that all items are strapped down and safe for transport. Finally, the movers will plan a route in its final destination, and safely move it, and re-assemble.
