POOL TABLE INSTALLERS
The American Billiard Installers Association offers protection, guarantees, and the most competent pool table movers that assist with moving or transporting your pool table. A pool table can weigh up to 1500 pounds or more, so it’s an intelligent decision that you have the proper training and tools for moving your pool table. Trying to move a table on with your neighbors or without the proper tools will lead to serious injury or destroyed property.
When you choose associates of the ABIA / SOLO® Pool Table Movers to do the work, you can rely on our decades of expertise and knowledge in working with billiard tables and people in the industry to safely disassemble, relocate, and re-install your pool table. With our faith, you can enjoy your pool table for many years.
The most common complaint that we hear when things go wrong with a pool table installation from customers is “I don’t want that installer back in my house again.”
YOUR AVERAGE AFFORDABLE POOL TABLE MOVER
Professional billiards tables are made using heavy slate that is recovered with a special wool blended felt. The slate pieces are heavy, and improper moving will lead to permanent damage in most cases. We offer professional pool table moving services to ensure the safety of your billiard table.
What the founder of the ABIA has learned since being exposed to pool table installers since the mid-1980s is that the average pool table mover will try to be affordable to be competitive with other pool table service companies in their local area. This increases the risk that you, the customer will be subjected to hasty work, missed appointments as higher income producing jobs appear on the installers schedule and the most common problem with the “affordable” pool table mover, refusal by the billiard installer to take responsibility for damages and poor craftsmanship.
The most common complaint we hear from installers when a job goes wrong and the client wants the issue with their pool table installation resolved is “That client was rude and I’m not going to go back to their house again.”
When a pool table installer offers a cheap price to you it’s only to get your business. They will give the impression that they are nice, they are good people and good at what they do. We are always looking for the best deal but in this industry, it can be a dangerous proposition. In our experience, when a pool table mover offers service at a discount or a cheap price, it’s only for one reason. They have nothing to offer but a cheap price.
Promises to “guarantee” their work, false claims about insurance are commonplace in the pool table installation industry. After you pay the “affordable pool table mover” their fee and they are no longer at your home and you find there was some damage done to your property or the pool table is damaged or not installed properly, they have no incentive to guarantee their work, They are off to the next cheap job to try to keep their heads above water and pay their expenses. They have little to no interest in returning to your house for free to spend 3 hours correcting something that they did wrong.
Believe us, this is why we exist. The most common complaint that we hear when things go wrong with a pool table installation from customers is “I don’t want that installer back in my house again.” So if the installer was hired independently based on a cheap price and the client needed something fixed with their billiard table, in this situation how could the installer “guarantee” their work if the client didn’t want them back in their house? The client will need to find another company, take another risk and pay more money.
The most common complaint we hear from installers when a job goes wrong and the client wants the issue with their pool table installation resolved is “That client was rude and I’m not going to go back to their house again.” So how can the client get their pool table installation fixed if the installer refuses to go back using the excuse that the client treated them wrongly or was too demanding of them? Again the client is going to have to take another risk and find another pool table installer and pay more money.
This pattern was identified many years ago and the ABIA was formed to remove it from the transaction, protecting the customer and guaranteeing the pool table move for the client, no matter what issue comes up.
COST TO MOVE A POOL TABLE
Independent pool table movers will charge, depending on the city between $275-$700 to move a billiard table. $275 in markets like Phoenix, Miami, Boise and $700 in markets like New York and across the upper East Coast. The total cost depends on several factors:(3-piece slate or one-piece slate), age/model of the pool table, if the move involves stairs, the distance from its old location to the new, if you wish to have new pool table felt put on and what type you want to recover your pool table with and in some areas, the weather.
The price can even change with the mood of your pool table installer that you contact or if their rent is due or they recently had a vehicle break down or some other unexpected expense. Remember that they are charging a cheap price for a reason, if they don’t charge enough to properly serve you, it will not be possible for them to cover unexpected business expenses because they just don’t have the financial stability to recover. Again, we have decades of experience working with them, we know.
