Pool Table Removalist

Get your pool or billiard table moved by the experts

Get started

Pool tables should only be moved by professional removalists. Here's why...

Pool tables are very large, very heavy, & very fragile - all at the same time. Quality pool tables are made of slate, which makes them not only heavy but also very fragile & prone to damage if transported incorrectly.

We specialise in pool table & heavy furniture removals. Here's what you need to know about getting your pool table moved with Austate. 

Can you move a pool table without taking it apart?

Whether or not you can get away with not taking your pool table apart for transportation depends on the size, weight and construction of the table.

MDF pool tables
MDF pool tables are the smallest home-use pool tables.
  • How heavy is this pool table?
    MDF tables weigh in around 80-100kg.
  • Is Disassembly required?
    MDF's are one of the lightest pool tables around and can usually be moved without disassembly. 
Large / slate bed pool tables
If you have a pool table other than an MDF pool table, we'd recommend you get in touch with us to move your table.
  • How heavy is this pool table?
    Larger home-use pool tables usually weigh between 210kg - 250kg, depending on their construction. They usually have a slate bed playing surface which increases the weight and fragility of the table.
  • Is Disassembly required?
    Heavier slate bed pool tables will usually require disassembly for transportation. Tables this size are usually made up of multiple slate sections that definitely require disassembly and can’t be moved without specialist equipment and tools. 
Thinking to move a pool table yourself?
  • Pool tables shouldn’t be dragged or pushed. This can cause major damage to the pool table leg fittings. Always lift the table at all times.
  • Pool tables that have several sections of slate require specialist tools and expert handling. We don’t recommend you try to move this type of table yourself.

Can a pool table be moved upstairs?

In most cases, your pool table should be able to be installed up or down stairs. It will most probably have to be dismantled to do so though.

How we disassemble your table.

Because pool tables are prone to damage, we would recommend getting our team to carry out the disassembly as well as the move - we have the right training and equipment to carry out your pool table move, damage-free.

Here's what needs to be disassembled for your pool table to be moved:

  • Legs.
    The legs on your pool table will need to be removed. This is normally pretty straight forward as they’re usually attached separate to the table.
  • Rail frame of the pool table.
    The rail frame is large but not too heavy. As long as there’s enough room for any sharp turns in the staircase, the top rail isn’t an issue to move up stairs.
  • Cabinet.
    This is the main body of the pool table and usually the largest part of the pool table to move. It should be possible to move the cabinet of your pool table up stairs as long as the cabinet itself is not too deep, the staircase is straight, and there’s no sharp turns or narrow hallways the table has to be carried through.
  • Slate bed.
    This is the playing surface, usually made of slate. The slate is not as bulky as the cabinet to move, but it’s large, heavy and the most fragile part of the entire pool table. This is the part of the pool table that is most often damaged during a move if the removalist is inexperienced or ill-equipped for the job.

Help us help you. What you need to supply to get an accurate quote.

Give us as much information as you can about your pool table and where it is to be moved to:

  • Pre-plan where you’re moving your pool table to.
    Check out the flooring of the room you’re thinking to relocate the table to. This is especially important for heavier pool tables. Some flooring such as timber floors or slate tiles may not be suitable due to the weight of your pool table.
  • Measure your pool table.
    Supply your pool table's dimensions and specify what type of table it is. If you have the information, supply the weight and construction as well.
  • Take measurements for the access route to get the pool table in.
    Check with our team that where you’re thinking to move the table to will be accessible. Eg. Measure width of hallways, staircases and doorways (inside the door jam please). Let us know of any sharp turns in corridors, any stairs etc.
  • Show us the way.
    If you can supply it, provide floor plans or take photos or video of the route the pool table has to take to get it to its new location.
