  • Using a Crane to get slates into a basement .

    It's been a while since I posted something of interest on the forum table section so thought you may want to see a recent job that I have been on .
    An old school mate of mine phoned me up to help dismantle his Snooker table that I put in his stable block around 20 years ago , into his basement , he is building his own extension with a Man cave in the basement for his Full size Snooker table and Guitar collection , so we got the slates in first before the first floor went in , he does nothing in short measures and a to hire crane to help build his three floor extension is £600 per day , so he Bought one ! second hand at £15000 .
    Think about it at £500 per day that's just 30 days hire .
    he will sell the crane after he has finished with it at the end of the summer.

      Very nice, makes sense to buy one though as £600 is practically extortion haha. Would be nice to see the finished snooker room once it's done?

            Thats not going to be his problem , and prob not mine , we will both be in our 70s by then .

            his son will prob have the house off him anyway , he also has a Daughter who buys and sells Horses , and has Fields over 20 acres , plus the stable block , and a rubber surface square for practice jumps , he also runs a pump out blockage service , starting with just one lorry pump , and now employs quite a few men and has a lot of lorries and equipment .
            But he has had his ups and downs in business , illness and then a building firm that went bust but paid everyone off in full , but has bounced back .
            Good luck to him though , he is still down to earth and the same bloke as I knew at school .

              It would be easier and cheaper to take a sledge hammer to the snooker table.....
