To know how to safely move a pool table, snooker table or billiards table, you first need to understand how the table was put together. Answer these questions before even laying a finger on the table:

  • What size is the pool table?
  • What weight is the pool table?
  • How many pieces of slate make up the snooker table?
  • How was the billiards table moved into the home?
  • What limitations will I encounter during the removal of my pool table?
  • What equipment do I have access to reduce the load on my body?
  • Do any of us have any previous experience moving a snooker table?
  • Does the vehicle have a hydraulic lift to load and unload the pool table?

If you understand the above questions and feel confident, then follow these steps to move your pool table:

  • Examine the room to see any issues you could have when lifting, lowering or moving the pool table?
  • Check to see if the table is a pub style, lift or traditional pool table.
  • Place the pool table dolly on the side of the pool table you will load first.
  • Prepare your moving pads in the proper position to protect the pool table and flooring.
  • Remove the legs off one side for a traditional pool table or pad the lift for a pub-style or lift-off table.
  • Lower the snooker table onto the dolly and ensure no movement.
  • Lift the billiards table up and make sure it is level on the dolly.
  • Brace and level the pool table so it supports its own weight
  • Pad and protect the table, legs and accessories during moving.
  • Load the snooker table onto your hydraulic lift while holding with two hands.
  • Use the foot controls on the lift to make the tailgate level with the truck.
  • Further blanket and protect the billiards table and then tie in securely.
  • Ensure there is no movement and then chock the pool table dolly.
  • Reverse the procedure at the delivery home ensuring no damage occurs.

That is how you move a pool table.

Pool tables come in many sizes, but the first four are commonly found in peoples homes:

  • 6ft pool table – 6′ x 3′ – 1829mm x 914mm.
  • 7ft billiard table –  7′ x 3’6″ – 2134mm x 1067mm.
  • 8ft snooker table – 8′ x 4′ – 2438mm. x 1219mm.
  • 9ft pool table – 9′ x 4’6″ – 2743mm x 1372mm.
  • 10ft billiard table – 10′ x 5′ – 3048mm x 1524mm.
  • 12ft snooker table – 12′ x 6′ – 3658mm. x 1829mm.

We recommend a room size of the following for each pool table size table:

  • 6ft pool table – room size of 4.5m x 3.7m.
  • 7ft billiard table – room size of 4.9m x 3.9m.
  • 8ft snooker table – room size of 5.2m x 4m.
  • 9ft pool table – room size of 5.5m x 4.2m.
  • 10ft billiard table – room size of 5.8m x 4.3m.
  • 12ft snooker table – room size of 6.5m x 4.6m.

Most homes in Melbourne will be happy and get many years of play with an 8ft (great all-rounder) or 9ft table (if you have the room).

If you are planning on moving a pool table yourself or would like to know if your second storey floor can safely support a pool table before you purchase it, then I would recommend you know the weight of the pool table. A few factors make up the weight of a pool table:

  • Slate vs non-slate tables.
  • The thickness of the slate.
  • The type of wood used to build the frame.
  • How many legs the pool table gas.
  • If the legs are solid or hollow.

On average depending on the size of the pool table, the weight will roughly:

  • 6ft – 290kg – 310kg
  • 7ft – 300kg to 350kg
  • 8ft – 380kg – 420kg
  • 9ft – 500kg – 595kg
  • 10ft – 600kg to 750kg
  • 12ft – 800kg to 100kg

If you are purchasing a new table, the manufacturer will know the weight of the table. If you are shipping a snooker table from overseas, customs will weigh the table for their paperwork and if you are purchasing a second-hand table, please use the weight guide above.
