Selling a pool table without being robbed or killed?
I just recently bought a house and the previous owner actually left me his pool table with all the fixin's. The trick is I have no use for the thing but the money it could potentially generate if I sold it could be useful. My problem is that I have never sold anything of this size or value before. It's an 8 foot slate pool table and I've got little to no experience with billiards or related things.
I've been able to figure out it's actually a nice pool table as such things go but I'm not really sure who buys and sells these things let alone how they get from one owner's house to the other. I'm assuming I can call a billiards specialty store for moving services but my main concern is that if I sell this thing people will ultimately want to show up at my house and potentially want to move it 'themselves' and I just have this vision of a bunch of dudes showing up to my house and robbing and or killing me. Has anyone dealt with a similar situation to this?
It's not really something that seems like a fit for Craigslist or Ebay and googling how to sell anything doesn't really turn up a lot of desirable links.
