I have a client who wishes to sell their full size Riley snooker table .
they are based in Taporley in Cheshire .
the table is in an upstairs location so will require around 4 strong persons to get the slates downstairs .
Price at this stage is negotiable with the seller .
as you can see a large turned legged Riley with worn cloth and worn polish to cushions and cushion marks from belt buckles and coins .
in my opinion the table could do with a full re-cover and maybe re-polish of the woodwork on the cushions , and maybe new nets and leathers to bring up to a good condition .
It is a buyers market so make an offer .
the nets and leathers are OK , but if you are going to have a re-cover nothing looks worse than stained and discolored nets and leathers with brand new cloth
however if you fancy a knock about table in a Garage or man den then just have it set up as it is .
the heavy slates and dismantled table parts have to come down this staircase
not an easy job to get the 5 slates that weigh 1/5th of a ton each down stairs .
do not attempt it with two men , this is a at least a 4 man amateur dismantle or a 3 man using professional equipment such as slate slide and piano wheels to move the heavy sections .
as you can see it sometimes takes 6 people to get slates upstairs .
3 men each side .
Gravity makes it a bit easier bringing them down .
At GCL Billiards we have the experience to bring down each slate on a specially made slate slide
slate slide attached to slate , carpet run on steps to protect stairs .
Slate at bottom of stairs .
and loading onto van
if you require a quote to dismantle and transport this or any table you may be interested in buying , then get in touch with Geoff at GCL Billiards
with post codes and if table is to be set up on ground floor easy parking no yellow lines and not far from van to door .
*** I am afraid we do NOT do the centre of London dismantles or unloads , due to restrictions of van use and parking restrictions we have to turn the London work away .
and the fact it can take up to to 2 hours to get into the centre of London , and out again .
