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.
