Best Affordable Pool Table Movers
Most billiards tables are made from heavy slate covered with a special wool cloth. The slate panels are weighty, and improper moving could lead to irreparable damage.

How Much Does It Cost To Move A Pool Table?
Plan to spend around $400-$600 for local pool table movers. The total cost ultimately depends on several factors: the type of play surface (3-piece slate vs. one-piece slate), age/model of the table, whether the move involves stairs, and the distance from its old location to the new. Most movers charge an hourly rate for moving your pool table locally, while out of state movers charge by weight and distance. At Great Guys Moving, we do our best to help you find cheaper movers.

What Are The Typical Pool Table Moving Services?
Even moving professionals will tell you, billiard tables are some of the hardest items to move. It pays to enlist the help of trained, licensed moving crews to do the work for you. Our pool table movers provide the following services:
Disassembly: Is It Necessary?
Most modern pool tables are a 3-piece slate that requires full disassembly to move. Disassembly includes taking out the staples from below the pockets, removing the side rails, taking off the felt, removing the slate piece or pieces, and removing the legs. Performing each step of the disassembly with precision and care is essential to proper pool table function after the move.
Pool Table Moving
Whether you’re moving the pool table to another room in your house or moving it halfway across the country, our movers will ensure safe transport. We’ll carefully wrap each disassembled piece with moving blankets, bubble wrap, and other cushioning materials. Then, using a pool table moving dolly, we’ll make sure each piece makes it safely to the moving truck. Finally, the movers ensure the pool table is secured, so it doesn’t shift and get damaged during transport. This type of move can be on the heavy side due to the slate, but it’s really a pretty quick and rather small move. Most of the time is spent on the breakdown and setup of the table itself.
Pool Table Setup/Installation
Once in your new home or business, our trained movers will work diligently to unload and set-up your pool table. Proper installation requires professional leveling performed by a pool table mechanic. Leveling ensures that you have a flat, even surface-area for playing.
