GCL BILLIARDS CLOSED FROM December 21st to Monday 7th January

PLEASE NOTE ****
No emails or  telephone or answer messages will be responded to in the period break of 21st of December to Monday 7th January
We are closed for our Christmas Break ,

GCL Biliiards will be closed from Friday 21st of December to Monday 7th of January
We already have most of January booked out for work , with some other job’s pending to fill the rest of January in .
part of February is also booked out , so again we have 6 to 8 weeks waiting for pool and snooker table work .
with just the odd day free here and there for local work .

We have a sottish trip due in January to Peebles , to move a 9ft table from Sheffield .
this will involve staying in Peebels at an Hotel PUB  / B&B for the night .
other work in is 7 pool tables and 4 american pool tables in Grantham .

we also have a week of work to do at Butlins in skegness in early Feb , and also a club in Ashby del a zouch with 5 tables due work .

add to this a lot of private and pub club work on single and double tables and you can see how quick a month can be booked out with only around 22 working days per month on average .

we would like to wish all our clients and future clients a very happy and prosperous new year
and hope that Brexit is not too disruptive to our work and supplies which I am  sure it will not be .
we try and use as much UK manufactured goods in our line of work as possible .
we will try and keep our prices in order and an acceptable level for the skilled work required , but we are governed by materiel and other goods prices and fuel .
also insurance and overall running costs of this small firm .
but I think you will find we around £10 give or take with a like for like skilled Billiards fitting firm .
please note that relocating snooker tables is a costly affair , where you can pick up a full size snooker table for a couple of hundred pounds it costs on average two thirds ore than the purchase  to relocate it . *** plus expenses like fuel miles traveled B&B and 2nd day labour rates  if required .

We will continue to try and link buyers with sellers to tables but we do not buy them in to sell , we only act as an agent for a seller and we list a table for free and only charge £25 admin fee if we are successful in finding a buyer for you . £25 admin fee is only payable once table has been sold , no sale no £25 fee .

We do have some success rate in moving tables on for people via our for sale page .

just take a look at our for sale pages if you are in the market for a Billiard / Snooker table , there are some bargain tables with some realistic prices on there like this Karnehm and Hillman table in excellent order cloth wise , apart from a few knocks in the polish work where cross rest has been put back at angle knocking the wood end and cushion , and just recently added . but take a look through all the for sale listings you may find just what you are looking for

Karnehm and Hillman full size square leg snooker table for sale just £250 .


Custom Taupe cloth colour for BCE snooker table fitted .

Today I have set up a full size BCE Westbury steel cushioned table at a  clients house near Derby
my client is having his whole house modernized and extended , and some serious designs have gone into the property .
one thing they did require for the snooker table was a custom colour of Taupe from Hainsworth smart cloth .
Taupe is a kind of mushroom or faded camel colour is another way to describe it .
the cloth  looks grey in the photo’s but close up it is mushroom soup colour .

Frame being set up , just the centre adjustable slate muntin’s ( centre slate bearers )  to be fitted next and a pre level of frame before slates go on .

stripping cushions ready for re-cover . slates have been fitted , and joints filled and level .

Match play steel cushions re-covered in the new Taupe coloured Hainsworth smart  cloth .

Bed cloth being fitted

Table finished , Balls set up for play .
the light above the table  is not my cup of tea , but the clients are looking into that with a possibility of changing it for something more suitable for the table .
if they deem it not suitable .

my clients are going to have the whole frame and cushion cappings painted in another colour

Closed for 7th to 11th of December , and Christmas holidays from 21st December to 7th of January .

NOW SOLD MARCH 14th 2019

 

UPDATE NOW SOLD MARCH 14th 2019 moved to sold file .

Private selling client , table is based in Reading .

Priced at £2500 for the table

and £1800 for the renovated chairs

here we have a very nice immaculate 8ft by 4 ft Riley solid oak snooker dining table
with dual height lifters and handles .please study the photos ,

Fully renovated cloth is and only can be described as new .

the raise and fall on these 8fts have pull out handles to make lifting the top up to playing height more comfortable
and then lowering to dining height , these are only found on the 8ft versions , and not the smaller 6 or 7ft tables .
the 8ft tables always fetch a high premium as they seat more and you get a better game on an 8ft than  a smaller table .
please allow around 5ft all the way around the table for full size cue use .
an ideal room would be 18ft by 14ft  , but you could use smaller 4ft cues if you wish . which would make the room size 16ft by 12ft .

this is what makes Riley diners so dependable , a rise and fall lifter mechanism

score board included .

the table on its own with some accessories is priced at just £2500 and has been fully renovated .
Chairs are optional and priced by separate negotiation but a further price of £1800 for the set of expensive fully renovated and upholstered chairs has been mentioned .
You may wish to ask about delivery costs for this table ,GCL Billiards would be happy to quote for a bespoke billiard table service for this skilled work .
