Tips To Follow When You Plan To Move Your Pool Table

by James Spencer Blogger

Deciding to pack up everything and moving over to a new location can be both exciting and yet stressful. Other than being happy about shifting to a new place and meet new people; you have to perform a lot of tedious and difficult tasks prior to moving out.

One such difficult to remove items is your pool table. There’s no doubt that having a pool table at your place is a great way to enjoy with your guests and family. But, if you had to remove it to your new place, then it can be among those toughest items to remove- especially as it weights 500kgs (give or take).

But, if you’ve made up your mind to remove it without the help of professional removers, then here are some tips to follow.

Secure All Tools Of The Trade:-

In sharp contrast to all the large items in your house, removing your large and heavy pool table will require more than brawn power and elbow grease. Furthermore, you won’t be able to move the pool table in one piece. You will have to dismantle them using various tools of the trade and even include some moving blankets to keep it together and safe.

Some key tools of the trade which you may need include:-

  • Power drill
  • Socket wrench
  • Moving blankets (several)
  • Power drill
  • Stable remover
  • And, a socket wrench

Proper Prepare & Measure:-

It is always important to measure and prepare for how much space you will need to remove your pool table. When you decide to disassemble the pool; remember, it is not only the weighty 500-kg pool table which you have to get through the doorway, you also have to handle its other detached big and heavy pieces.

If there are plenty of corners or edges (namely hallways, or twisting stairs), then add baby-proof bumpers to your pool table or look to cover them using thick towels. It will prevent it from getting battered or chipped while being moved out.

Properly Dismantle The Pool Table:-

You can always use the pool table manual to dismantle every piece properly. 

  • Start With The Ball Pockets:- For this; you can employ a staple remover to rip out the existing staples. Alternatively; if you find the ball pocket screw-driven, then you can remove them using the screwdriver.

  • Move Over To The Side Rails:- Use the socket wrench for unscrewing the bolts and allowing the side rails to get loose.

  • Then Focus On The Rails & Slates:- The rails; are stapled to the table and needs to be removed by the stapler. Do it gently as they can be easily damaged. 

As for the slates (which weights over 200-kg), they are downright heavy. So you don’t want to be the one moving it alone. You can begin doing so using a power drill and unscrew the slates. Then you can request your friends to lift it and move it out from your residence. 

Final Stage- Is Moving It With The Help Of Movers:-

The last stage is the stage when you actually move your pool table. With each of the parts dismantled; you will have very little trouble in moving it out from your front door and into the truck.

Make sure that when you are mounting each part, they are kept separately. This will prevent everything from banging against one another when being deported. 

Of Course, There Is An Easier Way To Do This:-

When you look to DIY, there is always the chance of injuries or accidents taking place. And the main reason being; you are not professional equipped and trained to perform such heavy furniture removals. 

So, if you think that it could be too much of a task for you to handle on your own, then look to hire professional furniture removalists serving across Sydney to do it on your behalf. These specialists will come prepared with all the tools of the trade and ensure your expensive pool table is safely shifted unscathed.
