"These guys were amazing! On moving day, Blue, the crew leader, arrived and cheerfully introduced the four men who would be doing the move. He also announced his intention to beat the estimate I was given. After a quick but thorough review of everything they’d be moving, they got right to work. They were all extremely careful with my furniture, using shrink-wrap and pads to protect it. There were lots of oddly shaped pieces and different sized boxes, but they packed each item into the truck like Tetris champions. As the day progressed, the men checked in with me often to make sure I was happy with the way the move was going - which I was. I’m not sure how, but they all seemed to be enjoying the challenge of moving heavy furniture and boxes and doing it efficiently. They would stack boxes I couldn’t even push across the floor, lift the stack, and walk down the stairs without hesitation. When they arrived at the new house, about 45 minutes away, they kept up the same level of energy until everything was reassembled and placed exactly where I wanted it. It was a difficult day for me, but Blue, José, Danny, Alex, and Louis acted like caring friends who were happy to help. One other thing - I forgot that I had hidden an envelope with emergency cash on top of my armoire. I was nowhere around when it fell off, but Jose found me and gave it to me, with all the money inside. I would recommend Best Cost to anyone looking for a positive moving experience. And, yes, they beat Eric’s estimate."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to replace pool table felt?

Owning a pool table, whether for pleasure or business, means investing in upkeep. Keeping the felt in good condition is important to ensure not only appearance but a smooth game. The national average cost to hire a pool table repair professional ranges from $330 to $400. A quality pool table is a major investment, so you want to hire a pro who is experienced and comes with glowing references. Refelting a pool table is a specialized skill calling for technical tools, competence with slate smoothing and repair, and the ability to provide a precision application of the felt that won’t hinder play.

When well cared for, pool table felt can last up to a decade; pros recommend replacing your pool table felt every three years or so, more often if you play heavily. Refelting and pool table repairs can cost more for antique and custom pool tables. Commercial pool table owners are wise to have multiple pool tables repaired at one time, as they can often get discounts for volume work.

How much does it cost to restore a pool table?

Keeping your pool table in prime condition both protects your investment and makes it more fun to play. If your billiards table has been damaged by age or player misuse, experienced pool table repair pros are ready to help. The average national cost to hire a pool table specialist is $330-$400, but pricing can vary depending on how much restoration work needs to be done and the type and cost of materials you need. Depending on the type of pool table you want, the cost to buy one new can range from $1,000 to $5,000 and up, so investing in upkeep every few years makes good financial sense. Common pool table repairs include refelting the table, replacing cushions and cushion rubber that is has deteriorated or been damaged, installing new pockets or replacing damaged pockets, and fixing chips or smoothing uneven slate. You can also have wood pool tables refinished to restore them to their former luster, which may start around $600 and go up, depending on size, wood type and necessary repairs.
