Moving a piano or pool table
General moving companies in Indianapolis often recommend hiring a specialty company to move a piano, which can weigh between 400 and 1,500 pounds and requires special handling to protect fragile components.
Reputable piano stores are a good source for finding a piano mover who will have the experience and equipment to do the job right. Consider also how Angie’s List can help. Members have access to local consumer reviews on piano movers and service providers in more than 550 other categories.
For more information, see the Angie’s List Guide to Piano Moving.
Moving a pool table can cause it to become unbalanced, or could lead to the slate top breaking. You can ask a general mover, but make sure whoever does the work is experienced at moving a pool table.
Your best bet is to hire a professional pool mechanic or other experienced expert to take down, move and set up your table. To find an expert, check with your local billiards service center.
It takes about an hour or two to dismantle a table and another three to six hours to set it back up.
The price to move a pool table varies, depending on the size of the table and the distance moved. The average price for a standard table can range from $200 to $600, which includes disassembling, transporting and setting up.
Many companies charge an extra fee if you’re traveling more than 50 miles and if there are stairs at either place.
