Moving a pool table is very similar to moving a piano, they both have complex pieces and can cost a ton of money if pieces become broken. On average, a pool table can weigh between 500-1,000 lbs. so a team is important to have for moving it in the house or to a new home. Breaking down the pool table can take on average an hour from start to finish. It’s going to take a team of three to four friends to help with the entire process.
If you are a DIY’er like me you can follow these steps to get the job done:
- Removing the Bumpers Start by removing the bumpers from all sides of the pool table. Depending on the type of wood you have, the bumpers should be fairly easy to remove. Once all the bumpers have been removed, it’ll expose the slate that will be discussed later in this guide.
- Removing the Felt
It’s time to remove the felt. The felt is either stapled or glued to the table; possibly even both. Whether it’s stapled or glued, you should be gentle during the removal process making sure not to rip the felt near pocket areas. Start by going around the table clockwise or counterclockwise instead of starting in different areas of the pool table.
Consider: If you are thinking of replacing the felt when you put the pool table back together make sure you order beforehand so it can arrive timely for application.
- Picking up the Slate
Now that the felt is off, you are going to need a helping hand with the slate. A drill is the best tool for removing slate tables. If your pool table has plaster or beeswax covering the screws, any screwdriver should do the trick. Once again, take your time removing screws. Pool tables typically come with two or three pieces of slate that can be between ¾ to 1” thick so it’s important you don’t try to lift it on your own. Slate is extremely heavy but fragile. Make sure you crate or transport it flat with additional padding for cushion.
Consider: When you remove the slate once flat on the floor it will be difficult to lift off the floor. Use wedges to keep it elevated to make it easier for lifting.
- Disassemble the Legs
We’re almost done! This is where your group of friends will come in handy. Now carefully flip the pool table over and take the legs off the frame. Now that the pool table is upside down, removing the pockets should be a breeze.
- Loading the Pool Table Finally! All the pieces to the pool table have been broken down. Hopefully you’ve already wrapped and protected each section for the trip. On your way to the truck, make sure the frame is already flipped upside down so there won’t be a need to flip it once it’s time to load it. Lastly, securely place all the other items on top of the frame. Your pool table is ready to go!
If you are still thinking this may be too much of a bother, you should definitely hire a professional pool table mover. Pool tables are heavy and lifting without the proper help can easily turn in to someone getting hurt. Never attempt to take on more than you can handle when attempting to move anything.

The 6 Roly Polys
Christmas of 1994, there was a family hard pressed to make Christmas happen as many were. Jack, a country man trying to make it big in the city, continuously pushed his family to keep moving and never stop working regardless of the circumstance. The “6 roly polys” is what he properly called them. A family that continues to show the persistence to keep going in the presence of adversity.
Thanks to organizations like SERTOMA (local chapter: http://www.gphsertoma.com/), Jack was able to pull things together and make Christmas happen for his family through sponsored toy drives across the city like at your local Boys & Girls Clubs or Toys for Tots. That memorable year, his youngest daughter wished for a brand new big wheel to help keep up with the bigger kids in the neighborhood. When Christmas came there was a brand new big wheel under the tree for her, but it was what dad did next that made him the hero of the day.
When she went to reveal her biggest wish come true, all of the kids were on brand new bikes and keeping up wasn’t going to be as easy as she expected. After Jack over heard a couple of the kids teasing his baby girl for being slow, he sprang into action challenging the young boys to a race around the block; them on their bikes against her slow big wheel.
After noticing the look of sure defeat on his daughters face he kneeled in front of her and said “Winners never quit and quitters never win, and you’re a winner”! As they approached the starting line the two boys smirked as Jack positioned himself behind the big wheel to even the playing field telling her “you pedal, I’ll push”. “On your marks! Get set! Go!” Someone yelled and it was on. The other neighborhood kids stood in anticipation as the race rounded the final corner and to the surprise of everyone the big wheel was in the lead and with one final push the big wheel crossed the finish line first. Everyone celebrated and joined in to mock the young boys for losing to a girl on a big wheel.
That day, Jack was crowned hero but this tale of persistence and triumph began well before Christmas day. It began with your donations as a community. Your decision to donate to organizations like the Boys and Girls Club or the Blair Caldwell African American Research Library , helps dads like Jack make a way for Christmas each and every year for their families. Your new or used toys give a kid just a little ounce of hope when it seems like all odds are stacked against them. A big wheel played a huge roll in the days’ events and left an unforgettable impression on a young lady that she will carry with her for the rest of her life. Although, a simple teddy bear, gift card, or even a pair of socks can be just as impactful to a kid with little to nothing.
How many times have you went through the trouble of moving from place to place packing, loading and carrying all of your heavy belongings, taking up you and your friends entire Saturday to get it done just to avoid high cost moving expenses. What if I told you, you don’t have to break your back or bank to get moved and do it in half the time? All it takes is knowing your options for every moving, storage and relocation situation.
What are your options?
- Do it yourself moving
- Full service moving
- Hybrid moving
Traditionally moving day is filled with grueling task: packing and lugging all of your belongings to your new house on your own or borrowing a few willing to help but frustrated friends. We call this the DIY move. DIY moves are the default solution for people that love to penny pinch and looking to save money on expensive truck fees, inflated hourly rates and movers who squeeze out every hour to feel like they have been well compensated for the day. All these things come with our dreaded second full service option.
Our third option is what we call the Hybrid move. Its DIY meets full service moving right in the middle. Moving has evolved and many more innovative ways of moving down the block or across the country have surfaced and made moving and storage less stressful and more cost effective. We call it the 50/50 model at Forward Motion. Instead of hiring a full service moving company that passes on the overhead cost of maintaining trucks, hire quality moving help to load and or unload your rented truck, mobile storage unit or trailer for long distance transport, and let your friends keep their Saturday to themselves, we promise they will love you for it.
We are POD Loaders (the best in the business).
