Reno / Tahoe Pool Table Movers And Installers
Properly moving a pool table is a very tedious process. Therefore, it may be tempting to get some friends together to move your pool table. But it is a better idea to hire professional pool table movers for several reasons…
- Pool tables can weigh up to 1,000 pounds. Consequently, improperly moving a pool table can result in serious injury.
- Pool tables are heavy, so moving them incorrectly can cause damage that cannot be repaired.
- Pool tables should never be picked up in one piece. It will not be level at the new location and this could certainly damage the pool table.
- Moving a pool table can be very time-consuming for anyone without experience.
An experienced pool table mover can have a table disassembled and re-assembled within a matter of a few hours. In contrast, it can take an inexperienced person well over a day to move a pool table.
We often get calls from people who tried to DIY a pool table move. Usually people try to tip a pool table over and move it on its side, or they just lift it up in one piece with a group of friends. Moving a pool table the wrong way can cause the legs to break, the rails can split, the slate can crack, the frame can break, and the beautiful wood will almost definitely be scratched beyond repair. Also, if a 1,000 pound pool table lands on your leg, you will certainly be taking a trip to the hospital!

Secondly, a pro can save you from destroying your pool table. Besides, our professional pool table movers will install your pool table correctly at the new location.
Replacing The Cloth…
When we move your pool table we may be able to use the felt that is currently on it. If the cloth was taken care of and if it is somewhat new we should be able to use it again. However, even if you took meticulous care of your pool table, the cloth could be dried out. The chalk used on pool cues damages cloth and dries it out. In dry climates like in Northern Nevada, pool table cloth and parts do tend to dry out as well. Here are a couple of questions to help you so you know what to expect during your pool table move…
- Is your felt is over 5 years old with a lot of play on the pool table?
- Is your felt over 10 years old with little play on the pool table?
If you answered yes to either question, you might need new felt. Re-felting a pool table is best done at the time of a move. Learn more about pool table re-felting here.
