Benefits of having the proper Pool Table Sizes readily available
There are several benefits of having the correct pool table room dimensions and pool table sizes. These measurements come handy not only if you are interested in replacing the existing pool table felt. But also are very important aspects when taking care of most billiard table services.
If an 8-foot table is expected to be serviced and we encounter a 9-foot table then we may not even have the correct cloth size to finish your job which could also incur additional trip charges.
The following list are the type of services where you definitely need to have your pool table room dimensions and/or pool table sizes handy.
- Complete pool table move (teardown, relocation and pool table setup)
- Tear down and move to storage only (this is to know the space we have to negotiate the pieces)
- Move from storage and professional pool table setup
- pool table refelting (as explained previously)
- Replacing the cushion rubber or replacing dead pool table cushions
In other words it’s a really good idea to know the size of the pool table before ordering service.
Getting the right pool table measurements
Measure from tip of bumper to tip of bumper across the width of your pool table to find your table size. You can find your room dimensions required by determining what size your pool table is. This is especially important when calling for pricing, refelting or moving because this will change the pricing on both services.
Some people may measure from one extreme of the table to the other, but this is incorrect. The proper way to measure the table is from one side of the play field to the other.
For example you may have a corner that interferes with the play of the table, if your pool table room size dimensions are short you should really consider how the table will be placed in the room.
For shorter rooms there are always small cue sticks to get you out of a jam. Our professionals can advise you of the necessary items and give you pointers on where to place the pool table during our professional installation.
