D.I.Y Method

You could do it on your own. All you need is to be handy, systematic person, with excellent carpentry skills, strong friends, and some tools. Really, billiard tables are super-heavy. The main surface is rock. Keep in mind that dismantling a billiard table is much more complicated than it seems. It is not simple like a dining room table. Removing the felt from the slate is a tricky process that could leave one tearing their hair out. Putting it back on can be every bit as complicated. A pool table is presumably one of the most difficult objects you can have to move. It’s wide, heavy, bulky, and surprisingly intricate.

The DIY tactic can be dangerous to you and to the pool table. Many make the mistake of attempting to treat it like a dresser or sofa by getting several friends involved in helping, and end up twisting it every which way trying to get it to fit in the door. Regrettably, these actions often end up with an accidental injury to you or your helpers, and you could damage the surface or destroy a component. If you really want to know how to properly move a pool table, the steps you should follow are below. Read carefully and thoroughly. Orange County Pool Table Movers will guide you through this process.
