You just bought a new hot tub, piano, safe or grandfathers clock. Now it is time to get it home. Most of the big box stores do not deliver. Some specialty stores deliver, but leave the item on your driveway. Shopping on line and buying used, usually means you will have to pick the item up yourself. These item are heavy and require experience. The last thing you need is to hurt yourself while trying to get a piano off the back of your pick up truck.

Pool Table Moving

Moving a pool table is something to save for the pro's. On average, a pool table can weigh between 500 to 1,000 lbs so it is important to know what you are doing so you won't get hurt.

Pool tables typically are made of slate. Slate tops are very heavy but they are smooth and flat, making a perfect surface for the game. A one piece slate table is easier to keep level over time, but is extremely difficult to move. A three piece slate table is the most common type of table and a good installer can make the slate nearly as perfect as a one piece slate table. Common substitutes include plywood, fiberboard, slatex, permaslate, slatron, slatine and honeycomb, but none of these alternatives offer the smooth experience and accuracy of slate.

I realized at that moment that I didn't even know where the grocery store was. I was exhausted and hungry and didn't have a clue. Having that first neighbor come over and introduce themselves was such a welcoming experience. They brought me a folder which contained some local businesses that I may need. The first business I used was for delivery pizza that night. Below are some ideas for a welcome gift.
