Figure out the cost to move a pool table the right way in Palm Bay
The first thing we want to stress is the fact that moving a pool table is a complex task. The complete movement of a billiard table involves a meticulous process that makes sure the assembly stays solid for and level for a long time since pool tables are not too often moved once set up in the game room.
Pool tables are built in a piece by piece fashion when assembled for the first time by the maker. When these pool tables are sold, the shipping is in pieces and again the installation is and must follow the same steps to ensure that the billiard table is in good playing condition. A methodical task such as this should always be handled by qualified billiard table movers.
Do not attempt these very common and lousy moving practices
Now, most of the pool tables we carry out are from one house to another and we have seen the usual ways people try to move their pool table.
Two of those practices involve taking the legs off and moving the top part between a few people. The other practice is to slide the pool table onto dollies or coasters and just roll it out or slide it to the side of the move is for re-flooring purposes.
These moving practices not only have a high probability of damaging your billiard table and/or property. But there is also a high chance that you could end up with a serious injury.
We strongly advise to not attempt to move it yourself as one piece. Trying to save while attempting to handle a specialty move like this could cost you thousands.

In our years of experience, we have seen many pool tables that have been ruined because of failed moving attempts by someone with little to no experience. Never try to move it in one piece, this could damage the billiard table, the property where it is moving out of or moving into and most importantly you could end up seriously injured. If an experienced pool table mover will not relocate a pool table in one piece, why would you want to try to do it?
Moving your pool table in one piece is a very bad idea, here’s why!
Moving the pool table in one piece is a ridiculous idea only needed to be attempted by fools. There are so many pool table brands out there, each manufacturer has different models, not to mention there are companies that already sold out, so there is a possibility that your pool table might be discontinued.
Even if you manage to have your pool table moved in one piece. Keep in mind that in order to bring the table to an optimal playing condition.
We have to follow the same process as when the billiard table was originally built. This means that the billiard table is to be disassembled and re-assembled.
Some people consider that if the pool table is taken apart the felt has to be stripped off and can no longer be used. This, however, is not the case if the cloth is carefully removed by professionals. The existing felt can be reused if it is in good condition and most importantly if you are happy with it.
Consider the refelting service when thinking about the cost to move your billiard table
If you’re interested in your billiard table recovering applying new felt. We can definitely help! The workmanship of our refelting service is guaranteed for an entire year and we also warrant the quality of the cloth we provide for the service.

Now, considering that you did move the table in one piece. There is a high possibility that some of the pieces could be damaged because of the pressure applied to the bolts, screws and/or slates. This implicates an even more complex disassembly than before it was moved and we may need to replace some of the components.
Often you find that the service for a pool table is going to be comparable to the price, usually, people are anxious to get rid of their pool tables, either because they no longer use them, they have to move out and do not want to spend on the service.
There’s a lot of really bad information on the internet!
Videos on YouTube and things of that nature trying to show you how to move the pool table yourself so you can save the money. It’s just a plain bad idea. That pool table was not meant to be moved in one piece, it was built in the factory piece by piece and it was shipped piece by piece and it needs to be installed piece by piece.

Factors you need to consider when trying to figure out the cost to move a pool table
What you have to think about is that this table will probably only be moved once or twice in the time that you own it. So this is an expense that will not come up often and when it does get moved it is better to go with a professional service that can offer a guarantee.
This way all you are looking at is a one-time price for the service and not the additional costs that can result from faulty installation, damage to the table and/or property and most importantly personal injury.
We often get calls from customers that chose to go with a low-priced service and were either rescheduled, the job was canceled and the table or property was damaged by an inexperienced installer. Please consider this when shopping around.
Pool tables are not often moved if that’s out of your budget and you don’t want to spend the proper amount to have the pool table properly installed and moved you may want to reconsider the pool table in the first place.
