View Full Version : Moving pool table when raining?

11-19-2005, 11:36 AM
I am going to purchase and move a used pool table tomorrow. I am using my friend's F150 pickup with an open bed to make the move. There is a 50% chance of showers though. If I buy a couple of tarps, should I be fine even if I get caught in the rain? This is the only day that it works out for all of our schedules, and I am leaving town soon after...then when I get back the seller is leaving town so this is the last chance I can get it from him.

What do you think?

You shouldn't have any problems, if you have a tarp. Even without being covered, it would have to get soaked through, to do any damage to the table, which is unlikely, unless left out in the rain for many hours.

i would double wrap it.then when you get to where it is going to be or storage take the wrapping off a.s.a.p.and put fans on it just to get the condensation off it if it got any rain at all on it......also do not store with it being wrapped up even if dry as some building conditions,weather and type of wrap can lead to condensation...
