Pack your pool table for moving

How to pack your pool table for moving

Not every item is packed and moved in the same way. There are items that are easier and tougher to handle and you can’t just wrap paper around certain things and put them in a box. Certain items are a huge challenge, and a pool table can certainly be one of them. You can be sure that we have the best moving and storage Brooklyn available to you, but also some great advice. Here’s what to do when you need to pack your pool table for moving.

Make sure to have all the necessary equipment to disassemble the pool table

You can’t prepare your pool table for moving without the necessary equipment. For that reason, make sure to have everything that you need when it’s time to disassemble it completely. It’s not like you’re doing it every day and that’s why so many people don’t have the necessary tools and equipment. One thing is for sure, be it that you pack your pool table for moving or for our Brooklyn storage, you want professional help to make sure everything goes smoothly. That’s because they will have all the necessary equipment needed to disassemble the pool table. Here’s just a part of those tools and equipment:

  • Screwdriver
  • Socket Wrench
  • Power Drill

Get your friends and colleagues to help you out

Are you blessed with a lot of friends and family members? Do you have colleagues that help you out from time to time? When you pack your pool table for moving you’ll probably need their help. Pool tables can be bigger or smaller, but either way, they can be heavy. You will almost certainly need to rent our moving truck Brooklyn to make the job easier. But before that make sure to have everyone ready to help you out. Make sure to pick a date when everyone is available and invite them to help you out. From packing to unloading and unloading, you will need a couple of strong hands to make the whole process work.

Make sure to disassemble before you pack your pool table for moving

We already mentioned what you need to disassemble the pool table. Now it’s time to underline why it’s so important. Above all. a pool table might seem very robust and strong to you. However, there are parts that are delicate and break easily. For that reason, you can’t use our small office movers in Brooklyn for this type of job. You’ll need the assistance of professional piano movers. They know how to approach every single screw of the pool table. If you still want to do it yourself, remember to be very careful and take your time.

Take special care of the delicate parts of the pool table

Every pool table has parts that can get damaged easier than others. For that reason, make sure to not apply too much pressure on certain parts of the pool table. By doing so you’ll avoid a lot of unnecessary damage and problems. Be it that you’re disassembling pockets or legs of the pool table you want to make sure you take good care of them. That’s because they can get damaged easily and repairing them can end up costing you a fortune. To avoid that take special care of every part of your pool table when packing and moving it.

Don’t forget to put all the screws and bolts in a separate place

Make sure to think about reassembling the pool table while disassembling it. That’s why it’s important to put everything together and keep it so until everything arrives at your new location. For that reason, for every part you disassemble, you need to put it away in a separate part or bag. For example, one of the things that can easily get lost is screws. That’s why professionals always keep closable plastic bags and write on what they put in them. That will make the process of putting back the whole pool table much easier to do.

Don’t forget to label everything in the right way when you pack your pool table for moving

Labeling isn’t something you do just to not lose important items. When you pack your pool table for moving make sure that you label the boxes properly. That’s because you want to be sure everything is safe during transport and that when the move is over you can put everything in the room where the pool table will go. One of the most important things is that you don’t want any other boxes on top of your pool table parts. That will almost certainly get them damaged or broken. Labeling them will make sure that you keep all parts safe.

Hire professionals to pack your pool table for moving for you

In the end, there’s not much that you can do by yourself. And on top of that, packing and moving a pool table isn’t an easy task. For that reason, the best choice that you can make is to hire a professional moving company. The best and most reputable moving businesses will have experts that are dedicated just to moving pool tables. Check out the Better Business Bureau or ask your friends and family members if they moved their pool table recently. By doing so you can be sure that you’ve picked the best movers to assist you.

Pool tables come in different sizes. From the smaller to bigger ones you still need to be precise when moving and packing them. On top of that, there’s a lot of things that are very delicate and are a part of the pool table. However, with all the advice on how to pack your pool table for moving, we’re sure you’ll manage.
