The dreaded phone call. Or, in this case, a plea via text message. “Can you move my pool table?”
This isn’t the first time we’ve come across a situation where a customer has removed the legs trying to move their pool table. It seems logical, right? Take the legs off so that it fits through the door?
This isn’t how it works, unfortunately. Removing the legs off of an eight hundred pound billiard table removes just a small portion of the weight. It also makes it nearly impossible to disassemble the remaining portion when it’s sitting on the floor.
Without going into detail on how to dismantle a pool table, it begins from the top down, starting with rails. The owners of this World of Leisure lucked out. The legs were damaged a bit but the leg mounts were okay. Others have not been so lucky.
Oddly enough, we have had this same situation happen before, on the EXACT SAME MODEL (different owner). How NOT to Move a Pool Table: Part 4
We were able to get the table disassembled properly, transported, and installed correctly in its new location.
