What is the cost to move a pool table

The average cost of moving a pool table within the UK is £120. This includes separating the table and putting it back together in its new location.

You may have to pay more if you need to move the table a long distance. The price will also vary depending on the size and weight of the pool table.

Moving a pool table across the country could cost as much as £1700. This is because you will need to hire a professional company to do the job, and they will charge by the hour. If you are moving the table, you will need to factor in the cost of renting a van or lorry.

Important cost factors for moving your pool table

The size and type of pool table 

If you’re planning to move a pool table, it’s important to consider the size, weight, and type of the table. Pool tables come in various sizes, from small 4 ft. tables to large 8 ft. tables.

Distance

The distance the pool table needs to be moved will also affect the cost. If the table is only moved a short distance, such as from one room to another, the cost will be lower than if it needs to be moved a long distance, such as to a different house or city.

Whether or not the pool table must be disassembled

If the pool tables need to be disassembled and moved, this will add to the overall cost. Disassembling a pool table is a complex process that only experienced professionals should attempt.

The number of steps involved in the relocation

If stairs are involved in the move, this will also add to the cost. Moving a pool table up or down stairs is a difficult and dangerous task only experienced professionals should attempt.

Labour cost

The cost of labour will also play a role in the final price. In most cases, the cost of labour will be £100–£200. The cost of labour may be higher, though, if the move is complicated or hard.

Middle range: £150 – £200
Low-end: £100 – £150

These charges depend on the company you hire and how many men are needed to move the table. If the table is very large or you live in a multi-story house, it may cost more because more people will be needed to move it.

Insurance

It’s also important to note that most moving companies require you to purchase insurance for your pool table. This insurance will protect the table if it is damaged during the move. The cost of insurance will vary depending on the value of your table.

Additional costs

There may also be extra fees associated with moving a pool table. These fees can include things like:

  • Parking fees
  • Tolls
  • Permits
