Pool Table Professionals


Welcome to Pool Table Professionals! Here you will find a little bit insight about us and our company.

 

How did you get started in the pool table business?

 

I started out when I was 15, working for a company behind my home, in St. Petersburg, Florida called George's Pool Tables. I was basically an assistant to the owner. My job for the first year was to carry the tools in and out different service location, as well as assisting him in, setting up pool tables. I also assisted in carrying the slates in and out on various move jobs. When we were not busy, I cleaned up around the shop. During my second year, George started teaching me how to set up pool tables and by the end of the year, I was re-felting pool tables. For the next couple of years, I worked side by side with him, learning and mastering every aspect of the billiard business. 

 

In 1985, and on the encouragement of the owners of Craftmaster Pool Tables, my wife Cheri and I opened our own business. The owners of Craftmaster suggested we call our company "Joe's Pool Table Repair". It didn't really have much of a ring to it, but the name made it's point. Over the years, I worked with and still do with some of the big-name players in the billiard industry such as Robertson Billiard Supply in Tampa, FL, Florida Billiards in Orlando FL, and Aurora Road Billiards in Melbourne Fl. I also have contracted out to major moving companies such as Allied Van Lines, United, Atlas and North American. Throughout the years, due to wanting a change of scenery, we have moved our business. We have lived the country lifestyle while residing in a quaint little town called Brooksville, FL. to living the big city life living in Orlando, Fl. However, despite the multiple moves across this beautiful state, we still have kept up our customer base. Our quality in service and our attention to detail keeps our customers coming back. 

 

What role does your wife play within the business?


I always have said that Cheri is the "brains" behind our business. She oversees all the bookwork which includes booking jobs, taking care and acquiring any inventory that we may need, and keeping our website and social media sites up to date. She is also in charge of keeping our accounts receivables and our accounts payable current. If you call anytime in the morning, most of the time, you will talk to Cheri, where you will find that she can usually answer any questions that you may have for us. On top of all that, she is a loving and caring Florida State Certified Paramedic, a Front Office Manager for a beachside hotel and she also volunteers in her spare time at a local horse rescue! To say she stays busy would be an understatement.  She truly is my other half and is a vital part to keeping our business running. I sure couldn't do it without her!

 

What do you like most about your job?

 

Getting to meet new people and providing them with exceptional service.

 

Why does your work stand out from your competitors?

 

Well I won’t say anything negative about our competitors, but I know our work speaks for itself. We take pride in the service that we provide. I often say that “we provide quality work with a personal touch”!

 

What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

 

How physically demanding it is. It's not as simple as picking a pool table up and moving it. Sometimes we are requested to move pool tables upstairs and with each slate weighing more than 150 lbs. this can be physically challenging.


Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

Moving pool tables, Re-felting pool tables, Setting up pool tables.


What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?


"Do you really have to completely disassemble a table to move it"? If it is a home table, the answer is YES. The common misconception is that pool tables can be moved in one piece. Unfortunately, when people try to that they not only damage the table but end up damaging themselves.


What are the latest developments in your field? Are there any exciting things coming in the next few years or decade that will change your line of business?


The newest craze is logo pool table felt. You can now have your pool table re-felted with your favorite football team's logo in the middle, a photo of your pet or whatever you can imagine. It's a great concept but is very expensive. You can see several tables that we have re-felted, under the sidebar OUR GALLERY # 1.


What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

 

Call us and talk to us personally; we can answer any questions that they might have. Buying a pool table is like buying a car. Know what you are looking for and know what you are willing to spend. 


What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?


Look for years of experience, look for guarantees, look for references, look for professionalism. Speak to the owners of the company; "Do they make you feel welcomed"? In our business we add a personal touch and don't make our customers feel like just a number. You invest a lot of money into buying a pool table, so you should receive top notch service when having it set up or moved.
