If you've recently purchased a pool table, or you're thinking about buying one, you may have also decided that you need pool table delivery to ensure that it arrives and is set up correctly. After all, pool tables are large, heavy, and require careful assembly. Here are some of the things that you need to know when it comes to having a new pool table delivered.
Think About Access
The first thing that you need to think about is where you plan to have the pool table installed. Make sure that the area you choose to have it installed in is accessible to the delivery company. That means minimizing stairs, ensuring wide enough doorways, hallways, and access points, and enough space for the table to be assembled with sufficient room to move around. Remember that you'll need space for gameplay and pool cues, too.
Consider Weight Capacity
When you have a pool table delivered, it's often a slate table. If you have a table with multiple pieces of slate, that's a heavy table. You should talk with your delivery company about any weight capacity concerts with your table so that you can be sure that the floor will support it. Check with the delivery company before your table is due to arrive so that you can be sure that the space is sturdy enough for installation.
Evaluate Moisture And Humidity Issues
When you assemble a pool table in your house, you also have to think about how the slate will be affected by any moisture or humidity issues in your home. If necessary, invest in a dehumidifier to keep in the room with the table to regulate the humidity. Talk with the delivery company about when you can expect the table so that you can set up the dehumidifier a few days early to ensure consistency in the space.
Ask About How They Level The Table
If you're having the pool table installed by the delivery company, you also need to know how they plan to level the table. No matter how level you believe that your floor is, you'll likely find out that it's not that level at all. In most cases, the table should be leveled with shims on the legs to keep it stable and structurally sound.
