Question: What is the cost of delivery if any?
Answer: Most items have free delivery. The cost of delivery of slate bed pool tables, football tables and table tennis tables is free to ground floor locations in England or Wales but extra delivery charges may apply north of Glasgow and parts of Cornwall. If delivery is to a basement or upper floor, our 2 man delivery crew will, if access allows, deliver to the requested location. The additional charge for an upstairs/basement delivery is £60. This price is to most areas of the UK and delivery is by our own delivery vehicles unless otherwise advised. Accessory and spares orders such as Pool Balls are usually sent via courier the next working day after receipt of order. Smaller items are sent by first class mail. All prices include VAT.
Question: How long before delivery if I order a pool table, air hockey, table tennis table or football table from you?
Answer: Most pool table, air hockey table or juke box orders are delivered within 4-8 weeks depending on the manufacturer. We keep pool table stock in our warehouse, but if the table you require is not in stock we can usually obtain it within 3- 4 weeks from our suppliers, with whom we have forward orders scheduled. Table Tennis Tables and Home Football Tables are normally delivered within 5 working days. Coin Operated Football Tables normally take 10- 14 working days
