How to Remove a Pool Table from Your House

Removing a pool table from your house might seem is a daunting task, but with the help of a professional, it can be a manageable process.

Whether you’re moving to a new home or simply need to clear space, the key to a successful pool table removal lies in thorough preparation and attention to detail. In this guide, we cover how professionals like WBA Billiards move a pool table.


Step 1: WBA Billiards will gather the supplies and tools required:


Before we start the removal process, we gather the necessary supplies to ensure we are equipped for the task. This may include some (or more) items below:

Tools: Screwdrivers, socket wrenches, and pliers for disassembling.
Moving blankets: To protect the pool table components during transportation.
Packing materials: Bubble wrap or foam sheets to protect delicate parts.
Dolly or hand truck: For easier transportation of heavy parts.
Measuring tape: To ensure that doorways and hallways can accommodate the pool table’s dimensions.


Step 2: We Disassemble the Pool Table:


Some pool tables are designed to be disassembled for easy transportation. Some are not. We follow these general steps as rule:

Remove the pockets: Unscrew and detach the pockets from the rails.
Take off the rails: Carefully remove the side and end rails from the table.
Remove the felt: Carefully detach the felt from the slate surface, starting from the edges.
Take apart the frame: Unscrew and disassemble the frame that supports the slate.
We carefully track of all screws and small parts, organizing them in labeled bags to make reassembly easier later.


Step 3: We Detach the Slate:


The slate is the heavy, flat surface of the pool table. We must handle it with care to prevent damage. This is a job really for the professionals.

Locate the screws: Identify and remove all screws securing the slate to the frame.
Lift the slate: With the help of another person, we carefully lift and slide the slate out of the frame.
We Place the slate on a flat, stable surface covered with moving blankets or foam to avoid scratches or breakage.


Step 4: We Move the Pool Table Components:


Now that we’ve disassembled the pool table, it’s time to move each component out of your house. We use a dolly or hand truck to transport the heavy slate and frame, always careful of narrow doorways and hallways.


Step 5: We Protect and Secure Your Components:


Before loading the components into a vehicle, we wrap them in moving blankets or bubble wrap to prevent scratches and damage. We secure everything in the vehicle to avoid shifting during transportation.


Step 6: We then Reassemble at the New Location:


Once we’ve transported the pool table components to the new location, we follow the manufacturer’s instructions to reassemble the table in the reverse order of disassembly. We focus and take the time to ensure each part is securely attached, and the table is leveled.
