pool table moving

Not sure I'm asking this quertiuon in the right category, but I'll give it a shot. Can anyone tell me how difficult it is to move a pool table other than the grunt work? I understand that they need to be releveled and refelted. Can anyone give me basic instruction on how to do this? Any help is appreciated.

If you like to shoot pool and appreciate a level table with good rails, go to a billiards supplier and get them to move and reset the table - it's worth the price.

Not what I was looking to hear, but thanks anyway George. The problem is I have to move it from one remote area to another and I can't find anyone on either end to move it, so I'll probably wing it.

Sorry about that.

Obviously, you need to break the table down int managable parts. I'd do the same thing I do when I taking a chair apart - put masking tape on every piece and amrk it's location (and orientatioin) on a master diagram.

Tape screws, nuts, bolts, etc., to the piece they came out of.

Handle the slate (it's probably more than one piece) with kid gloves. As heavy as it is, it can be chipped easily.

Resetting a pool table

Perhaps when you get the table to its destination, you can find a billiard table professional to set the table up again.

moving pool table

Disassembly is probably the best way to move it as someone stated earlier. As far as resetting the table it's quite simple with your basic carpenters level. Once you've put your table back together, just place the level on top of the green, you can then turn the feet of the table to adjust the height accordingly. You'll have to do this several times, changing the direction that the level lies in. Do the four corners, the middle, the sides, etc. Continuously turning the feet in or out to adjust the height.
As far as replacing the green goes, I would recommend that you have it professionally done, it's fairly expensive, usually around $200 or so, but the results will be much better than trying to do it yourself. Once you've regreened, it should last you quite some time if you keep it vacuumed and free of spills.
