Well, I had my table moved in the Detroit area. After many recommendations I went with the most expensive mover and legit Billiards company. I wasn’t impressed. I should have gone with The cheapest. At least I would have got what I paid for

Who was this "legit Billiards company" ?? What did you have done?? Did you question them about their installation techniques?
Like RKC was saying, many people just have no idea and then realize they just got taken for a ride. The realization is always after.<<< Very key part.

It is such a surprise that most of the "legit" companies have ZERO skills at installing Simonis Cloth.

It was the removal process. Dropping the bolts on the hardwood floor, then stepping on them. Losing hardware. Gouging the walls.
