  • Our crews are equipped with gloves, disinfectant sprays/wipes and hand sanitizer for your protection and theirs.

  • Upon arrival, our crew will still introduce themselves, walk through the home with appropriate social distance, begin to protect the home with all safeguards like floor runners, and door jams (as they always do), but in addition we ask you now (with all due respect), to please give them the appropriate space they need to safely and efficiently service your move and allow them space to do their job.
  • When available and appropriate, open doorways and windows to increase air circulation and ventilation.
  • We are also taking measures to sanitize the cabs and boxes of our trucks, as well as all blankets, pads, tools and equipment after each and every move to reduce any risk of cross-contamination.
  • It is our hope and our expectation that you will take the same precautionary measures that we are taking, and that will also sanitize and wipe down any and all exposed surfaces and furniture prior to our arrival. Anything that you can do to help keep our working conditions safe and sanitary for our men, is equally appreciated.
  • Owners / office staff will be working around the clock from home with complete access for our team and our customers via phone, email and text.

If you are unable to pack and gather all of this material on your own, be sure to contact movers that offer professional packing services Miami to help you out.

Relocating your pool table – Step by step

To begin with, the first step is to get some manpower. You are going to need at least one friend or family member to help you with the process of disassembling your pool table. Do not be afraid to ask for some help. Furthermore, it is always a good idea to have your friends help you pack when relocating. It makes the entire process more fun and interesting. Aside from that, it also makes it more efficient. Some of the parts of your pool table are quite heavy and this is where you are going to need extra pair of hands the most.

Disassemble everything

Now that you have acquired the necessary packing materials and tools, it is time to start the process of preparing your pool table for the move. The first thing to do is to disassemble all of the smaller parts and pieces. Start by removing the table’s six-ball pockets. Screwdriver is going to come in handy here. Using your wrench you can remove the table’s side rails. After that, you can carefully remove the felt from the top of the table. The felt is very sensitive. Make sure you know what you are doing and use all of the necessary tools when removing these parts. Otherwise, contact professionals to help you do it. After the felt, you can focus on the pool table’s slates which are quite heavy. Afterward, you will have an easier time removing and disassembling the rest of the main body such as the legs of the table. As you can see, there are many parts of a pool table so this is going to be a long process.

Pack smaller parts and items in cardboard boxes

Once everything is disassembled, you can start packing these items. Use the various cardboard boxes that you have. However, make sure that you separate all of the various bolts and screws and mark where they go. These can be packed in smaller, plastic bags and then be put inside boxes. Use bubble wrap and packing foam to add extra protection to your items. Moreover, use the packing tape and wrap it around each box several times to make sure everything stays closed during transportation.
