FOR SALE ……. NOW SOLD !

NOW GONE IN PX ……SO SOLD !


New van in silver on it’s way 7th of December delivery day .

 

Due to new van arriving every 4 years we are now looking to sell our 3500 125ps L2 H2 van with cruise control .
Having just turned over 60.000 miles this was the miles that I had in mind when I would look to buy a new van , not that there is anything wrong with our van it is just as a business we intend to change the van every 4 years around the 60.000 mile range to keep our image up and reliability risk at a lower level .
it is just good business to do this and of course offset the van against tax where applicable .
the van has a service history and recently 2 new front tyres fitted .
it has been very well cared for . Never been overworked or over loaded , never been thrashed always kept at cruising speed on motorways of 70mph with rev counter bang on 2000 revs and always try and keep it around those rev limits , 5000 is red line limit and never taken over 3000 on change down revs  .
we do have another second vehicle ( Car ) so this has helped keep miles low on this van , making it  a good buy for a set up business or just a good buy for an established one .

the private plate is not going with the van and will be transferred to new van .
as an optional extra and because it gives my right foot a rest , I had Cruise control fitted as a after thought at an extra cost of around £400 .
The van takes a payload just over 1600kg , and although I do move snooker tables around the UK , this van only does this at a rate of 2 a month if that .
it mainly is used just to carry my tools around and a good sign advert when out and about , and knowing that I do have the capability of moving the odd snooker or pool table’s around .

as you can see it takes a complete set of slates and on this load 2 sets of cushions 12 legs 2 sides and in fact two whole snooker frames dismantled
plus 2 shades , this was being stored at a council yard for a council run leisure center , and even with me in the drivers seat this only came to 1450kg
well under the limit of 1600kg capacity .
The van is ply lined and if you look closely it even has the original Factory check list paper stuck to the bulk head , I never took it off from 2013 .
the van also has the mid range 125ps engine so not the low under powered 100ps  one , or the high powered 160ps with lower  MPG use one , this is the mid range 125 ps engine and the one most Van magazines say go for .
6 speed manual box around  35 mpg average  , Air con , Hands free phone bluetooth connection , Electric Windows , electric heated mirrors . two 12 volt charger sockets . Reversing warning sensors ,  Fold down center seat for table use and cup holders  , three seats ,
fabric is in good condition no wear or split seating that you find with many of these trade use vans , in fact passenger seats hardly used .

I of course had the van sign wrapped , this can be taken off by any buyer or leave it on if in the same trade and just put your firms details over the GCL Billiards parts and phone numbers changed
the van has one slight dent to the top of the rear door as can be seen in this photo above , this caused by hitting the gutter clip above my garage when reversing , the reversing sensors are at bumper level .

the van easily carries three Supreme pool tables and maybe could take a 4th

An older welsh slated table has slightly more heavy slates than the softer Italian slates , so you have to slide the sates more to the bulk head .
Easy to do with 2 inch over lap of slates so you do not trap your fingers , a roller and the wheels upside down to wheel them to the rear ( as in photo )
this table with two men and full tank of fuel and tools and trolley is approaching the capacity 1600kg .
I did my home work when buying a van and this is the best one size wise the L2 H2 for carrying Snooker tables .
the longer wheelbase you come down to 1530kg , you have to put the long table plank  sides ,  on the side above the wheel arch at an angle as you can see int his photo above ., and being as it is the H2 height van you can stand up in it , I am am 6ft 2 inch .
What makes this van attractive to most private buyers of small firms is that  I paid the vat when new and lost that in full and that cost me over £3000 loss  , and I am not vat registered so no vat will be added to this sale .
Look around the country on web sites and Ebay for the same spec and year June 2013 , same miles of 60.000 ( with cruise control ) and you will see they do fetch this sort of money up to £8000 PLUS VAT and that around £1500 to  £1600 saving , if you find a vat free one like this that has been looked after .
I have had a quick look on Ebay and there are two lower priced but at 149000 miles and 129000 miles not a patch on this van at just 60.000 miles and not thrashed or worn out .
The van has an MOT to June , But I will put a full 12 months on this van if bought at selling price listed at £7495…no vat to pay .

the van has been very reliable and I have never had any breakdowns or problems that involved taking it back in
apart from a noisy vibration from the fuel pump which was changed after two weeks of picking it up new ,

this photo was taken the first day it was sign wrapped , the original plate will be back on the van for the sale .
all inquiries to Geoff at GCL billiards

Sale is strictly bank transfer or paid into account by bank checked cash before van could leave our possession .
we will not accept cash for this amount as too many false notes around !
and yes I have been caught out before with false notes .

phone numbers as on back of van above photo .

SOLD ….Moving Monday 5th February 2018

 

We have a client wishing to free space up for other purpose .
and the only solution is to sell his very nice Oak 10ft by 5ft Snooker table with hard cover top included .

as you can see the table comes with a sectional matching oak table top .
with the correct higher than normal chairs this could be used as a dining table ?

from the photo’s supplied by our client the cloth and table looks as new as the day it was fitted .

Solid oak frame and cushions , in light oak , this table will fit well into a modern home
the room required would have to be 20 foot by 15 foot .
This is the nearest size to a full size 12 foot table and one that is sought after if you cannot fit a 12 foot in then this  is the next best option .
Full size balls and full size pockets , just two foot shorter and 1 foot less on width .
I must point out that I know that Birmingham billiard usually miss out the adjustable slate bearers on many of their tables even full size .
please read about adjustable slate bearers or Muntins by searching on my web site for them , this will explain why they must be fitted .below is a Birmingham billiard full size table where they missed out the adjustable bearers and I retro fitted some in .

now this 10ft table also has no center support bearers under the slate beds
this can be easily be sorted if you bought the table and had GCL billiards relocate the table for you , and we are always improving tables by fitting these adjusters and new support beams to rectify slate sagging , a common problem on modern tables .
As can be seen in these photo’s we have fitted many adjustable brackets and beams to help keep the slates playing true without the risk of slate dipping through lack of support .



if you required a price for moving this table then please get in touch with Geoff at GCL billiards who would be happy to quote not only for a relocation but also the added costs of fitting adjustable slate bearers and adjusting brackets .
My client at this moment in time is looking for offers for this table .
I have given him a figure that I think he should accept but that is for any buyer to talk to the seller about,  and thrash a price out between them selves , all tables on this web site are private sales,
GCL Billiards do not own the table , we just advertise them for the selling client to try and find a buyer who just may choose GCL Billiards expert workmanship to relocate this very attractive oak 10ft table .
there is no middle men fees to the buyer , you are buying direct from the seller .

Here we have a good opportunity for some one looking for three section slate bed table with bolted cushions
Ideal Family Christmas games table just in time for Christmas at a very good price .
These tables new can cost up to around £1995 without the table tennis top option .
Our client is eager to move the table on and wish to have it sold and out by October .
so here is a Bargain for someone for just £500 . Which I think has to be the fairest price as any removal costs going on top and relocation costs has to be added .

as you can see the polish is in very good order and I have been informed hardly any use at all on the cloth .
the nets and leathers still look immaculate .
This table was probably imported by Titan leisure and GCA re branded it as their own by simply sticking a label on one cushion .
GCA I have been informed by the seller no longer exists .
Now there is one thing that could be improved on with the table and I will now show you from a photo.

the underside of the table shows that there is a three sections late bed as the line is a slate joint , but there are no slate supports to wind up to the slate in this table ,
a long beam of wood is required and two adjustable brackets at each end will make this table a much better table to play on .
or two cross ember beams and 4 brackets , the choice is yours , but I would advise this to be done as my next photos will show you .

adjustable muntin slate support adjusts upwards and supports the slate from sagging .
a preventative option that you should be having fitted to all snooker tables above 6ft .
Especially 4 legged tables , such as this one .
obviously the price of this table at £500 is a private sale and does not include any alteration or pick up and delivery .
a price could be supplied for you from GCL billiards for this work , but we are pretty booked out at the moment .but I could give a good few firms names for this work if we are not available .

the cushions have bolted type hex head fixings so not  a low cost option , with just wood screw slotted head fixed on  cushions so well made .

the table comes complete with a table tennis hard top cover , the table underneath is a 8ft snooker table the table tennis tops are approx 9ft long .

a very nice looking table and at just £500 it is a very fair price
the table is based in Weobley in Herefordshire  .
any inquiries please contact GCL billiards through our email and we will pass on details to both buyer and seller .

Riley oak ? rise and fall dining snooker table 7ft by 3ft 6 inch playing surface . LATEST UPDATE UPSTAIRS LOCATION !

Here we have an original Riley Rise and fall diner . 7ft size .
circa 1930s to 1950s .
Made in solid oak or bleached mahogany which looks to have been stripped back for a more lighter natural look .
The cloth is perfectly playable but does show signs of wear on nose of cushions and could do with a good iron to lay the wool nap back down .
*** PLEASE NOTE
I have been informed that this table is located upstairs , I did have a buyer lined up but I not know this , you must when making an offer ask the seller to get down stairs or base your bid on yourself employing people to get it downstairs for you and deduct that from a bid that you would have made if this table was on the ground floor . although heavy this table does not weigh as much as a single section of 5 off a full size snooker table , the dining table slate is only half an inch thick while a full size table is two inch thick and comes in 5 sections , this is a one piece slate bed table but only half an inch thick and 7ft by 3ft 6 inch ,you may with three people slide it downstairs using an old strip of carpet to protect the stairs and the table edge .
you may need a piano trolley like this to wheel it to a van on its side edge


The light oak and square fluted legs  would suit a more modern home as well as say a cottage with plenty of oak such as doors or skirting .
being a dining table it doubles both for dining and playing .

It is important for any 4 legged diner to have anti bow beams fitted , here you can see these beams  supporting the slate so as to discourage sagging in the middle .

the all important rise and fall lifting brackets are all in location , some may find the lifting to lower and the lifting to lock up hard to master , but it is a simple procedure
and these brackets require just a few drops of oil or grease to keep free and work with ease .
wipe any excess oil or grease away when doing this , badly maintained lifter brackets will result in sticking bracket slides .or one side free while the other sticks , most annoying .

another view of the very nice solid oak dining tops in 5 sections .

some of the accessorizes are included , but you will have to ask the seller which ones
I always recommend that any seller includes  the full kit to playing the game , after all you would not buy a car without a  steering wheel so why buy a snooker table without scoreboard
or balls .
so please find out what is included before committing to buy from this private  seller .

As you can see the cloth is a bit faded and shows ball wear on the face of the cushions but I have been assured there are no damage in the cloth and it is perfectly playable .
please also inquire from the seller that  the rubber cushions rebound with good value .
GCL billiards do not own any of the tables for sale in the for sale section , they are advertised as a direct sale from the seller , so you must ask the seller these questions .
If you require any information please email me after the 22nd of September 2017 as I am out of the country for this week .
I will put any one interested in the fine well made piece of furniture , directly in touch with the seller Emmi .
These 7ft Riley diner tables are sought after and can fetch anywhere between £650 to £1300 DEPENDING on rubber /cloth nets and leathers and polish condition .
In pristine fully renovated condition expect to pay around £2500 from a dealer for an oak 7ft version  .
This table seems to be in good moderate condition so I would say a figure between the two would be a fair price depending on what came with it of course and if those rubbers are in good order .
I base my valuations on Private sales not what a dealer would ask , so they are very  fair come and buy me prices based on what these tables exchange hands for on the private market .
A dealer may ask for much more but they normally are sat for many years before someone buys them .
You may decide on a re-cover so here area few prices so you know what it would cost to bring right up to A1 playing condition .
A re-cover in good quality Strachan napped cloth £325
a re-rubber using good quality 5/8th rubber £275
new nets and leathers fitted as same time as a re-cover around £100 per set again good quality type .
This table is worth at least £650 , but based on factors given may be worth around  £950 to £1150 that is my guideline for this table based on the photos .
Of course you will also have any removal and collection and delivery costs on top of this .
The table is based in Shalbourne Village in the SN8 are ,  not far from Andover . or the M4 .
