7ft hubble & Freeman snooker table for sale offers around £350 inclusive of vast amount of accessories

We have a client based just south of Maidstone who wishes to sell a 7ft snooker table including vast amount of accessories
the table is UPTAIRS , so any buyer will have to arrange to manhandle this to ground floor and out of the building
Selling clients are elderly and cannot help with that .
one pocket or rail or net may need some slight attention so I am informed .

I would recommend that the cushions and pockets and rails are unscrewed off the slate to lighten the lifting .
Frame could then be dismantled or if stairs and doorways wide enough carried out as it is .
slate is best carried down stairs on its own you may need 4 men for this .
and a small / medium transit van , with blankets , small removals firm should be able to manage this with a  piano trolley .
Well made Hubble and Freeman manufactured .
£350 ono . buyer to arrange to take away .

Pool Table rental for 2021………THE RESTART of the Rental side of GCL Billiards .

Once the covid restrictions are lifted and Pubs and clubs are back to normal business
How about a Brand new Supreme Winner Pool table fully maintained to announce to your clients you are back open for business .
If you have  an old pool table on site and are thinking of refurbishing it …STOP
look at what Rental of tables has to offer fully maintained .

Having had our pool table rental business ripped apart by Covid restrictions and pub opening and restriction times .
many Pub site’s  requesting we take our tables off site to free the space up for more seating and eating tables , as it was becoming impossible for them to carry on offering pool tables for use under the strict covid ruling of mixing leisure sport pastimes in close quarters .
a few clients just pushed the tables to one side and we will recommission these tables , when the Restrictions are lifted and they are allowed to use the pool tables again .

We have sold a lot of our used stock off , but I have invested that money along with an investment added to it to replenish our rental stock with Brand new Supreme winner coin op tables .
All Brand new tables now come with a new colour badge …gone is the old green one and replaced with a new Blue design one .
Supreme Winner | Latest Finish - Rustic Black Pool Table
Our Rental terms are as follows

First year

Sign up for the first year at £90 per month no vat will be added , you will get a re-cloth every 6 months in Hainsworth Match cloth in Green
the cloth that comes on it for the first 6 months is Strachan 6811 , once that is worn out at 6 months every re-cloth will be done in Hainsworth match  .

After the First year .

Then the rolling contract is for 6 months after the first year , once re-clothed you are committed to a 6 month contract until the next re-cloth time .
You will get two sets of standard reds and yellows  balls from new , one for general use one for match use .
4 cues and chalk .
This will be replaced by a set of balls every 12 months and 2 cues and chalk .
any coin op breakdowns is covered by our contract .
Most pool, tables take at least £40 a week some take much more , I have Clients who take over £100 per week on pool tables .
as each Rental client has the keys all that is taken into the cash box is your takings , all we require is our monthly rent .
all our pool tables are Black pearls cabinet , we do not operate any other colour cabinet .
As you may know Each re-cloth in Hainsworth match can be around the £250 price mark so take that yearly  £500 just in re-clothing into account that you do not have to pay for a re-cloth every 6 months it is all included in your rental price .
Your pool, table is maintained well with a 6 monthly re-cloth , and your clients will flock to play on a decent clothed table .
Rental prices will only increase if we have higher overheads , we did not put our prices up for the last 8 years until now , it used to be £80 a month
but I am sure you will agree after 8 years costs of tables and cloth and accessories  have increased .
We still feel this is the best Value Rental contract offered out there by any Rental operator  of pool tables .
we never had one complaint in 8 years in the way we operate our rental business . but plenty of praise .
and with Geoff Large having over 44 years experience in the snooker and pool table maintenance side of the cue sports business as a time served Billiards fitter you are in no better hands .

Brand new supreme winners now in stock ready to install on site ( Ground floor only )

Well it has been an eye opener of a year ….cost of new rental tables set to rise slightly by approx. £2.50p per week and why .

2020 the year we where restricted in what we could do work wise .
some work was not possible to do because of the covid restrictions , and other work was OK to do  , but we where never near our normal quota of work that we turn over this year .
the Government Grants helped us self employed small firms survive , and we are extremely grateful for that help .
work picked up a bit towards the end of the year , but we are left with a lot of unused cloth stock ,  regarding cloth ordered in for jobs that where cancelled , plus the replacement of our sold pool tables  that came in off site .
We lost a lot of our Pool Table Rental site income due to Covid , in fact you could say down to Zero takings with many pubs asking for the tables to be taken out .

So we look forward to 2021 the year we hope that covid gets kicked into touch , and in the hope that we can improve and our lost rental business , and is allowed to restart also .
Because we had to sell off a lot of our ex rental pool tables off site , we have replaced some stock ready to go once the restrictions allow licensed premises to operate fully again .

Brand New rental pool tables coming into stock ready for 2021 replacements .
we have had some expense this year  and I am using my own cash reserves to buy in the new tables and make up the deficit of the S/H to new replacements .
this will unfortunately mean we are going to increase our Licensed site rentals by a £10 increase of the last 5 years rate , but we are upgrading the two re-cloths per year to match cloth to offset this
they would have normally be re-clothed in strachan 6811 .
we still think we are the best value Pool table rental firm operating in our area for Brand new tables .
the replacement tables are costing us more and so is the cloth .

My van is now three years old and I would normally be looking to PX for a newer model , and with the No deal scenario .
I have bit the bullet to avoid price increases on a new van , and also any import duty raise in the chance of a No deal scenario , which could have put a few thousand pounds on the cost of a replacement if i did not go for a VAN CHANGE NOW .
All though I could have done without the expense of a new van in these Covid times  it had to be done now .
And have put an order in for a new van to be delivered 2nd week of January 2021 , I have always stated that reliability is must for any firm to operate , by changing our van every three to four years it will give us some reliability in making and keeping those appointments of work and commitments we make  .
Having spent  Seven years working for a firm that ran vans into the ground with many lost days due to breakdown or leaking oil over clients drives  , I made my mind up when I started GCL Billiards not to go down the same route , and refresh the image and reputation of the firm by changing vans every 3 to 4 years .
Fresh new vans are the face of a company , clients see a nice modern newish van arrive with their prized possessions or for maintenance work , and they feel more at ease knowing they have a company that cares about their image and reputation .
This does cost a bit to afford which is why we charge a mileage fee to not so local destinations for a round trip .

And last but not least , we wish all our clients past present and of the future , a very merry Christmas and prosperous and happy new Year .
Lets hope that 2021 is the year we sorted not only Covid out but also the uncertainty of Brexit , which in my opinion was dragged out far too long .
Lets hope that the EU do not hold anything against the British People or it’s Government who wish to start off on a venture of regaining a variety of world wide trade deals that will make us all busy , with  plenty of work and be prosperous .
