Disassembly & Transporting

Our team of experts in Des Moines takes special care when disassembling and relocating your pool table. We employ specialized equipment that protects the table and its precious 150-pound slate, utilizing a custom-made dolly for secure transport.
We meticulously remove the Felt without tearing any strips, leaving no staples behind. Even though this is a time-consuming process, taking extra care ensures a quality move rather than a fast one. We understand that even just one lost staple can cause injury to a pet or person.

The Des Moines installers will accurately position the table in its new home, and then use shims to level the slates. If you desire a bar light, the stud finder will be utilized to identify the best spot for it in the ceiling.

Slates on a pool table typically have tiny gaps of up to 1/10 of an inch between them, which is why we use beeswax to make sure the surface is even.

Our technicians take great care when leveling the slates of a pool table – this crucial step is done with precision using a machinist level.

If the billiard table is assembled on carpeting, it could settle unevenly as time passes and require re-leveling. For your peace of mind, we provide a guarantee that includes free re-leveling should it become necessary.

Re-felting your table is the best way to ensure that any unknown contaminants from a previous owner do not cause smells. We offer a great selection of felt in various grades and colors. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about our re-felting services.

1 Slate Tables

Pool Tables with 1 slate require very unique methods of moving. Each slate weighs at least 600lbs so you need 2-3 people to carry it.

Most pool table moving companies don’t move 1 slates due to this but we are able to do most depending on the situation. Stairs add lots of difficulty and if the table is an 8 foot then those are near impossible to move with stairs.


To level a pool table you can’t use any normal carpenter level. A carpenter isn’t precise enough to level a pool table because any slight difference in level will cause the ball to noticeably shift in play. 

We use a machinist level, it is 10x more precise then a carpenter level and it helps to get the pool tables we install to a near professional play level of quality.

A lot of the movers in Des Moines do not use machinist levels. Make sure you ask every mover you call, most of them pray on the fact that you don’t know the difference between a carpenter and a machinist level.
