Moving and Set Up

Tear Down

In Joliet, our team is committed to providing exceptional care when disassembling and relocating your pool table. We utilize specialized equipment to protect both the table and its valuable 150-pound slate, including a custom-made dolly for secure transport.

During the process, we remove the felt without causing any tears or leaving behind any staples. This meticulous approach, although time-consuming, ensures a high-quality move that prioritizes the safety and integrity of your table.

With our dedicated efforts, your pool table is now prepared for a safe and smooth transition to its new address.

Our installers will first accurately position the base of the table in the room, and then level the pool table using shims. A stud finder can be used to determine the ideal spot for a bar light.

To ensure an even surface, we use beeswax to address gaps between the slates.

Our technicians level the slates with precision using a machinist level.

If the pool table is placed on carpeting, it may settle unevenly over time, necessitating re-leveling. Our guarantee includes free re-leveling if needed, providing peace of mind.

Re-felting your table eliminates potential odors from previous owners. We offer a wide range of felt options in various grades and colors. Feel free to contact us with any re-felting inquiries.

Single Slate Moves

Moving one-slate pool tables poses unique challenges due to their significant weight. A slate weighs approximately 600lbs, necessitating the assistance of 2-3 people for safe transport.

Some pool table moving companies avoid handling one-slate tables due to these difficulties. However, we are equipped to handle most situations involving one-slate tables. It’s important to note that moving an 8-foot table with stairs can be extremely challenging and near impossible.

Despite the challenges involved, we are committed to accommodating and finding solutions for moving one-slate pool tables whenever possible.

Carpenter levels are inadequate for leveling a pool table. The precision required surpasses what a carpenter level can offer, as even a slight variation affects ball movement.

For utmost accuracy, we utilize a machinist level, 10 times more precise than a carpenter level. This ensures near-professional play quality during pool table installation.

It’s worth noting that many Joliet and Chicago movers lack machinist levels. We recommend asking about the level used by each mover. Some may take advantage of customers’ unfamiliarity with the difference between carpenter and machinist levels.
