Customers should look for a mover that can examine the pool table ahead of time to provide an accurate estimate, notes FlatRate.com. These movers should also know how to take the table apart for the move and put it back together properly.
Well before the move, customers should take time to call a few different movers to get estimates. Make sure to tell them that they are moving a pool table. It is also a good idea to ask about their moving process. Some movers include fresh felt for the pool table in their estimate so customers do not have to reuse old, possibly wrinkled felt. Professional movers also know how to level the slate when setting the table back up so customers have a level playing area for games.
The costs of moving a pool table are as much as several hundred dollars, states HomeAdvisor.com. Costs are affected by the size of the pool table, its placement, its style and how far it needs to be moved.
Owners of new tables may want to get a mover that offers more care and extras, such as replacing the felt or bumpers. Those with older tables might want to save on the cost of the move by doing some of the tear down themselves and having the mover transport and set up the table without the extras.
