Looking for a Manufacturer of My Pool Table

Looking for a Manufacturer of My Pool Table

This pool table came with the house when we purchased it about 10 years ago. We are looking to sell it as we have extra family needing to move in and need the space. We can't seem to find any markings on the pool table at all. No stickers or plates, nor any place either of those might have been.

The pool table is made from solid wood. It does not have a ball return system, just the drop pockets. I can't tell if it's a 1-piece or 3-piece slate. There are 3 sections, but I could only get two in the shot. It came with the pool cues pictured and two sets of billiard balls - one set in the box branded Aramith, and other items pictured in the drawer.

We weren't sure what to list the asking price at. We've contacted a local pool table moving company because we wanted to include the moving charges in that price. They charge $575 for moving the pool table, but when they saw our photos, they said they would pay us $400 for the pool table. I don't know pool table values, but for this solid wood table with ornate legs, with what seems like slate under the table, I thought that seemed a little low.

Would you be willing to help direct me to how I could find the manufacturer and/or the value?

Thank you for your time and help,
Mike Nelson

    You'll probably get a better-qualified response to this within a week, but I'll put-in my guess now to let you know you are being read!

    So you're saying the table has received a total offer from the dealer of $975, right? That's sounds about right to me because an unmarked table strikes me as an overseas knock-off. You might get more responses to a selling ad if you include the table's length dimension and whether there's any damage.

    I don't think there's any such thing as a two-piece slate, but yours doesn't have a sophisticated undercarriage, so if it is one-piece that would make it more attractive (and easier to transport) for a first-table buyer. Ask for $800 and buyer pays for transport, then be willing to reduce your price.

    Thank you for your response!

    The total offer from the dealer was $400, and they would come get the pool table.

    There are just pockets and not a ball return system. I left that part out.

    I also wanted to make clear that there isn't a drawer located on the pool table itself—just a storage drawer in our basement which holds those items. I just included a picture in case it gave some clues!

    It appears to be a generic imported furniture-grade pool table.

    There's another similar one posted here: Help to Identify 8ft Pool Table

    I would say with 99% certainty that it's a 3-piece slate.

    What you have going for you is it's condition. It's in like-brand-new condition, and has the cue rack, etc.

    People don't typically factor moving costs into the pricing when selling a used pool table. Post it at your asking price, and mention that the buyer is responsible for moving it.

    The $400 you were offered is a bit low, but it sounds like time is not on your side. Perhaps in your specific case, the value to you of (a) $400 in cash and (b) the fact that it's gone from your space might be enough for you.

    The BEST way to value these generic furniture-grade pool tables is to:

    1. Look at classified sites in your local area (e.g. within a radius of ~2-3 hour drive from your location). Let's say for example that you initially think about selling it for $500. You should review classifieds for comparable/similar pool tables for sale, look at what else a buyer could get for $500, and adjust accordingly.
    2. Consider how quickly you need it gone. Drop your price accordingly. Generally the faster you need it gone, the lower your price will have to be to attract buyers.

    In the end, I think you can get more than $400 for the whole package, if you aren't in a huge hurry.
