Question DetailsAsked on 5/12/2011

Does anyone know of a reputable company that will move pool tables?

I live in Troy, Michigan, and need someone who works in the Oakland County area. I've had one company quote me $350 (the company that set it up originally) and I have no clue whether this price is in the ballpark or their reputation. However they did a great job setting it up. Any advice appreciated. Thanks

I would think any major moving company would be used to moving just about anything, including pool tables. Another thought is whether having someone besides the people who sold it to you move it would violate a warranty.

Hi Lawnlady,

Are you moving and setting it up somewhere else? Or just "taking it apart" and moving it?

I live in the Philly area and my wife and I moved recently. We were originally going to move the pool table to our new home. I called the company that had originally set up the table in our basement because they did a fantastic job.

I got a quote for $500. Keep in mind that they had to drive an 1 hr. to my house, disassemble it, drive 1 1/2 hrs. to my new house, reassemble it, then another 45 minutes back to their store. Total, about 4 1/2 hours worth of time for that company...Therefore, $350 is a really good deal, or right on par depending on your needs. (Consequently we decided to sell the table instead, but we did get the quote in writing before hand)

Whatever you decide, I HIGHLY recommend using a billiard company and not your garden-variety movers.
The table will have to be taken apart- it is way to big and heavy to be moved as one piece; and billiard professionals know how to disassemble them the proper way. Improper disassembly can result in damaging the felt, or one of the slates falling out and damaging your floor [:'(]

The quote you rec'd sounds reasonable compared to the cost of a do it yourself resulting in shattered slate. If you choose to use a less costly, generiic. moving company, read the fine print!

Try asking Viscount for their installer's name. I can't find the information just yet, but they did a very nice installation for us a few years ago and they said they do moves. If you ever watch them, they level the two pieces of slate and wax the seam before putting the felt on. It's pretty precise.
