A pool table is not something you just pick up and move, no matter how many people you have to help. The only proper way to move a pool table is to carefully take it apart, move the pieces, and carefully put it back together again.
Of course, the slate in the interior of the top makes a pool table very heavy. Depending on how many pieces of slate a pool table has, a single slate piece can weight up to several hundred pounds. Add all the slate together, and that’s just too much weight to try to move by yourself.
When we move a pool table, we completely dismantle it, organize and move the pool table pieces, and reassemble the pool table in the new location.
