Tips for moving a 1-piece table

Tips for moving a 1-piece table

Looking for some tips and/or pointers on moving the 1-piece slate from a 4x8 Fischer pool table. I've designed a 2x4 box frame with 4 handles built in, as well as a come-along rope system to slide it down the steps. Weighs about 450 lbs. Anyone have any experience in moving a 1-piece?

Any transporting tips? Can we lay it down on it's side if we are careful to put blankets/cushions underneath it?

Any help is apprecaited.

    moving a 1 piece slate table is rough. i had 3 other guys with me to move mine and we were all straining. the slate is pretty durable tho, we stood it up on its side in a trailer with the table bracing it against the wall. it made the 40 minute trip no problem. as for the stairs, good luck . . . i counld't imaging moving mine down more than 3 steps. you must have some skinny slate for that 8'er to only weigh 450 lbs.

    if you dont have strong and willing friends, your best bet is to pay someone to move it and let them worry about it.

    I agree with Will. There are some things best left to the professional. You're talking a lot of weight here and even though you designed something for moving it, the potential for some one getting hurt or the slate itself being damaged has to be on the very short list of possibilities.
