    A pool table is one of those items most of us would like to have in our homes. There is no doubt that playing billiard is fun for the whole family. But, when the time for relocation comes, that same pool table will give you headaches and make you wonder how to move it safely. Pool tables are heavy and bulky. Thus, you need to be very careful when moving it. In this guide, we are going to list the best tips for moving a pool table in the simplest and safest possible manner. So, make sure to keep reading to learn more about this matter.

    What are the main difficulties of moving a pool table?

    Moving a pool table from one place to another is a bit tricky. It’s pretty obvious why – they are large, heavy, and bulky. One billiard can be up to 9 feet long and can weigh more than 700 pounds! Moving something that big and heavy requires proper preparation and planning.

    Keep in mind that billiards are also very expensive. Even the smallest mistake during your move can cost you a lot. This is why moving a pool table should be handled by professionals with experience.

    Whether you opt to move a billiard on your own or with the help of Idaho movers, you’d want to learn a couple of tips for moving a pool table with ease. In the following text, we are going to mention the most important ones.

    Four tips for moving a pool table safely

    It is true that there are some difficulties you will have to deal with when moving a pool table but don’t let this worry you. Here are the steps you would want to follow for a successful billiard relocation.

    Gather all moving supplies in advance

    To speed up the packing process, gather all supplies ahead of time

    Before moving to Idaho (or any other state), you will want to make sure that you have everything for organizing a successful billiard move. This means that you will have to gather all moving and packing supplies well in advance.

    Here are some of the supplies you will want to have next to you on the day of your move:

    • Measuring tape
    • Paper and pen 
    • Staple remover
    • Socket wrench
    • Power drill
    • Flathead screwdriver 
    • Moving dolly

    Keep in mind that these supplies can make the billiard move easier, but you can do without some of them. So, don’t worry if you can’t find everything on the list.

    Measure your old and new place before moving a pool table

    If you ask us, this is one of the most important tips for moving a pool table successfully. If you want to avoid property damage while moving, you will have to measure your home. This goes both for your old and your new place. Make sure to measure all doorways, hallways, and stairs. If the room where you plan to relocate your pool table is small, you will need to measure it, too.

    With measurements, planning the move will be much easier. You will know whether you will be able to squeeze your pool table through narrow hallways and whether you will be able to do it without scratching your walls or floors. In addition to this, after measuring your old and your new place, you will also know if your pool table needs to be disassembled or not. So, don’t skip this step.

    Disassemble your pool table

    Next, you will have to disassemble your pool table. You will find this step in all guides with tips for moving a pool table. It’s something that will make your relocation much safer and easier.

    When disassembling, you will have to remove all key parts – table legs, rails, slate, felt, ball pockets, and side rail bolts. You need to be very careful when removing ball pockets since they can tear apart really easily. That’s why you should use a staple remover or a screwdriver for removing them safely.

    Keep in mind that if you are moving over short distances, you can skip the disassembling part. But, if you ask us, you should always disassemble big and bulky things before the move.

    Protect and label every part of your pool table

    If your pool table is now disassembled, you can start to pack it for the move. To avoid any unpleasant situations during the move, you will want to make sure that every part is fully wrapped and protected. 

    When you are done, you will need to label every part since this will help you when reassembling your pool table. Write the name of all parts and where they go. Also, you can take a couple of photos of your pool table before you disassemble it.

    Sure, if you choose to relocate with the help of local or long distance movers Boise, they can take care of this part for you. So, if you are not sure whether you can do this on your own, simply put professionals in charge.

    Tips for moving a pool table without disassembling it

    Although you can move a billiard without disassembling it, it’s better to avoid doing this

    One of the questions our clients ask is whether they can move their billiard without disassembling it. This can be done but we don’t recommend this. We already told you that billiards are very delicate and expensive. It will be very hard to relocate a pool table if it’s not disassembled. But, it can be done. Here is how.

    • Measure your home. You need to make sure that your hallows are big enough for moving a billiard that’s not taken apart. If your hallways and doorways are too narrow, you will have to disassemble your billiard.
    • Gather the equipment. If you want to relocate a billiard without disassembling it, you will have to get dollies and furniture sliders. Billiards are very heavy and you won’t be able to relocate them without these moving accessories.
    • Hire professionals. You can’t move a pool table on your own, you need help from moving professionals. Just make sure to hire them as soon as you set the moving date. With their help, a successful move is guaranteed.

    So, there you have it – these were the most important tips for moving a pool table. In case you have any questions or you are in need of Idaho movers, make sure to reach out to us and we will gladly help.
