Today I have been over to Lincolnshire, this time for subcontract fitting work of dismantling and moving a full size snooker table from one house to another, a distance of approx 6 miles. The table is made by Barton Billiards circa 1985 and is in good condition. It only required a recover in 6811 tournament cloth by Strachan.
The new owner has put up a nice log cabin in the back garden and this is now his pride and joy. New lighting to be fitted soon.
The move went very smoothly, no stairs involved, ground floor with easy access from the dismantle to the install.
If anyone is thinking of buying one of these log cabins, the owner informs me the cost was approximately £15,000 including ground work, base and electrics. It is a very large building and very warm too. the building in kit form was delivered and plonked on the owners drive for self assembly for just £6000. I think total spend includeing table came to around £17000.
Tomorrow I’m off to Market Harborough to recover a 9ft table and sort the bags and nets out. Work is coming in steadily and the phone is ringing every day with new clients asking for quotes, which shows our advertising efforts are spot on.
GCL Billiards has found its niche in the recover and maintenance market of cue sports tables. A mixture of regular own clients and some contract fitting work from people within the cue sports trade, plus our pool table rental business.
