Professional Pool Table Movers, Riverside CA
A pool table is a very heavy piece of furniture and it needs to be taken apart in order to move it properly with out causing major damage to the frame and to the slate playing top. Right underneath the felt top on which you play your billiards games is a slate surface. Depending on what brand of pool table that you have you may have a large single piece of slate or the more common three piece slate construction.
Disassembling a pool table involves a simple process of removing the felt and rails (cushions). Then the slate is carefully unbolted from the frame of the pool table and the seems are delicately separated (on a 3 piece slate table). The slate pieces are carefully packaged as not to damage them during the move. The plastic or leather pockets are removed and then the pool table frame is ready to be moved and loaded in a truck if the pool table will be going to another location. If the pool table is only being moved from one room to the other then it will then go into that room or garage for storage.
Professional pool table movers carry specialized and industry specific tools in order to properly reassemble a pool table once it has reached its intended destination. The first thing to do is to position the table in the proper location where billiards play will be optimum. Next comes a rough leveling of the pool table with rubber shims that go underneath the legs of the table. The slate is then placed back onto the pool table so that it can also be shimmed and bolted back onto the pool table. Your pool table moving expert then carefully levels the slate with a highly accurate machinist’s level to achieve a perfectly level billiards playing surface. If the billiards table is a piece, which is very common, the billiards mover will then fill in the seems with a special beeswax that will ensure a smooth billiards playing top. The very last steps include re-stretching the old pool table felt or stretching new pool table felt over the felt. Re-installing the rails and pockets will complete the task and we are now ready for a fun game!
