Owning a pool table is sure to give you, your friends, and your family hours of enjoyment. Instead of heading to the local bar you're never more than a few steps from a game, and you'll likely be glad every day that you added a table to your home. But while there's no way to argue with the fact that a pool table is a great addition to a home, actually moving it into your home or moving it when you're relocating is one of the biggest tasks that you'll end up facing due to the sheer size and weight of the table.
A pool table is usually made from solid wood and then topped with multiple pieces of slate. That slate ensures the best action on the table, and the solid wood ensures that the slate will be supported. But when you need to move your pool table, it also means that it's one of the heaviest items you will have to manage. That's why disassembly and reassembly of the table is usually the best option. Instead of trying to move the entire thing, you can hire a professional to disassemble the table into several more manageable pieces, which means that you'll be moving lighter, less bulky items.
It should be relatively obvious that moving your pool table on your own or disassembling it is a bad idea. One mistake could cause the table to shoot incorrectly and ruin it for good, causing a need for repair. And once it's in its new home you'll need it to be perfectly level. In short, trusting the professionals is the best option that you have for getting your pool table moved without injuring yourself, damaging the table, or spending hours in frustration. It's simple, straightforward, and well worth considering when your moving day arrives.
