How to find us…
Our tables are installed in homes, hotels and bars all over the world. Wherever you are in the world, we can make sure you not only get the table you want, but that it is installed and setup, ready for play.
Whenever possible, our experienced fitters will drive the table to its destination and liaise with you or your representative to ensure that they can install the table precisely where you want it, mark it up for your chosen game and ensure your complete satisfaction.
Every table is made crafted in multiple sections, taking into consideration any access restrictions of the desired location. Typically, it will require two fitters to assemble and install a table, although in some locations, and for some larger tables we might need 3 or 4. In every case, the table will be installed with the utmost care and attention to detail. In order to ensure a flawless installation it is essential that each client, or their representative is available to advise the team on the exact location of the table, its orientation and any detail requirements, such as line marking etc. It is also the responsibility of the client to fully inspect the table to ensure that it is undamaged, and that they are completely happy with the installation.
We have driven tables to many European destinations, and yet there are also many of our clients in countries to far for us to drive to. In these cases we construct purpose-built shipping crates for the table, accessories and lighting, to ensure the table arrives in perfect condition – ready to be assembled and installed.
The crates can be collected form our workshops by your chosen shipping company, or we can arrange shipment, using one of a number of International freight forwarders that we have worked with over the years. We will then fly one or more of our fitters to meet the delivered crate and to install the table. Alternatively, we can supply specific instructions for a table if you have access to competent local installers.
We export to a growing list of countries, on every continent – and we’re always excited at the prospect of one of our unique tables finding a home in a new country.
