Call Cue-n-Cushion. They relocate most tables and if they won't do yours, they have a place that they recommend. I think the other place is called Laner's (or Laney's)

Move fees are normally around $400 I think

The 3 places I called wont move the 1-piece slate.

Finally C&C referred a guy that takes all the tough jobs. Thank god...this table has been in our family for 34 years. I grew up playing on it.

Thanks guys.

Good luck man, I also have a one piece and some places wanted like 400 some would not even touch it. The way to go is to call the place you want to do it and try to get the information of the service they use... sometimes calling the people directly instead of going through the shop can save you tons.

$375 to disassemble, move, reassemble, level. Not happy about it, but considering the alternatives of leaving it or spending $7000 on a new one, it's money well spent.

Youd think the granite countertop installers would do this kind of work. That has to be similar, right?

375 does not sound bad at all. Its a shit job, I've done it before and that was a 3 piece table. i swore I would never do it again.

Dude, a one piece slate weights over 300 pounds and its awkward as sh!t. 400 for moving it and taking it apart is a great deal... a place wanted that just to assemple mine and take it down to the basement.

Actually the slate is the easier of the two...and its HEAVY. Since its an old tavern table, the "table" is just as heavy and even more awkward. Its all those little wooden tunnels for the balls and larger cue ball to return in differnt spots.

I paid $160 just for a felt and setup for mine last time it was moved. Are you gonna replace the cloth while it's apart?

If I was going to have mine apart, I would replace the felp for sure... Seriously cosider it if it has been more than a couple of years... the bumpers might not do all that well during transport or whatever... unless you never play in which case its probably like new.

I had the pleasure of moving one sucker not too long ago. $400.00 sounds like a steal to me, I wish I had called around.

my parents just had this done when they recarpeted the basement and it's not a cheap job. expect to pay $$$ to get it done right. they can probably re-felt it for you and do some other things and you can get a little more bang for your buck though if you plan it right.
