Have you ever wondered how a ( fully
KD ) pool table is actually shipped? How it arrives at your house and
what you need to do to start playing? It is important to us that our
customers are well informed, so this is our explanation of what you can
1) Typically you will receive one or two pallets that
have the slate and table components strapped to it. The slate is in
three pieces and is packed in a wood crate. The table components are
boxed separately in 3 or 4 cartons. The picture at the bottom of this
page shows a Black Night 8 foot table staged for shipment at our
warehouse. What you see in the background are shuffleboard tables
2) The cloth will arrive separately by UPS. This will
just be an ordinary package that basically looks like a folded table
cloth in plastic packaging.
3) The heavy components will need to removed from the
truck. We usually recommend that you break the pallet and remove the
components one at a time. The slate carton can also be opened and each
piece removed individually. Please remember to have help available to
get the items off of the truck if you did not purchase inside delivery.
These are very HEAVY components!
4) Once all of the components are located in the room
where they will be assembled, it is time to start putting the pieces
together. The table will need to be assembled. The rails will need to
be covered with cloth and the slate will need to be installed on the
table. After the slate is installed, bees wax will be used to fill in
any seams and then it will be covered by cloth as well.
5) Congratulate yourself on a job well done and start
The assembly of a table is a fairly time intensive operation but it is
manageable for anyone that is reasonably handy. Roughly 15pct of our
customers chose to assemble the tables themselves. For the remainder,
we do offer installation services.
As always, please call us if you have ANY questions about what might
work best for your situation. Our goal is to see you get the exact
table you want delivered in the way that best meets your needs!
