My wife and I are extremely excited and happy with the 8' Olhausen you sold and assembled for us. We're glad we went with your recommendation on the Simonis felt and the tan color is perfect for the room. It's also a nice contrast to the dark wood of the table. Your team was very professional and courteous. I will gladly recommend you for anyone that needs your services.

Thanks again,

Thanks Again,


I just recently purchased a used pool table from Independent Billiards and had it installed by Joe and his team. I say with confidence that anyone considering using his services for a purchase or installation will be in excellent hands. Independent Billiards clearly “goes the extra mile”, and this is evident from start to finish. The beautiful furniture table I purchased had some wear and tear, and before buying it I asked Joe if he thought he could “touch it up” a bit. He said he would give it a try. When the table arrived and was installed, it looked beautiful and the small repairs made a remarkable difference. In addition, Joe remembered that I briefly mentioned I had 2 kids at home. He gave me 2 “short sticks” to go along with the 4 others he supplied. What else? A small billiards clock and a new box of chalk to match the lightly-colored felt. This service is impressive, but the repairs, cues, clock and chalk were – unknown to me – all included. He could have charged me for these extra services, and I’m sure his competitors do, but this is what sets Independent Billiards apart from the rest. Joe and team are the real deal, and I give them my highest recommendation.

Happy New Year, Joe and Emily. This is an open letter of endorsement of the great work done by this company. When I bought my Brunswick table on eBay, I started looking around for someone to do the crucial task of assembling it in my house. I was sure I could handle everything else on my own. A long and careful search revealed that Independent Billiard Services is the only logical choice. Ask around. You will come to the same conclusion. These guys are the best. The more I learned from Brunswick, internet blogs and professional publications, the more I realized that I should leave the entire job to professionals. So I had them drive up to Vermont, disassemble the table, take it to my house, and set it up. One of my wiser decisions for a myriad of reasons. If you're thinking about buying and/or transporting a pool table, save yourself a ton of grief and have these very knowledgeable people do what they do best. You will never regret your decision. These people know pool tables.

I just want everyone to know how professional Joe was in installing my American Heritage table. He exceeded my expectations. I have already recommended him to my friends.

Thanks Again,

Joe and Chris have moved, installed and covered my 9' Brunswick table.
They have done an outstanding job. They are very meticulous and punctual and I would highly recommend them.

Thanks again guys.

An amazing job by an amazing team! Joe and Chris are professionals who excel at the setup of a great table. Plain and simple, I would put all my money on Independent for a perfect job every time. Emily coordinated the whole move to the "T". Communication, customer service will always prevail over price any day. This was so worth it.

I contacted Independent Billiard Services after a web search about consigning my pool table. They quoted me a price range over the phone, explained their service in detail and I set up an appt. They came on time, we signed the contract, and they took the table apart and left my room clean and neat. Very professional and courteous. Six weeks later I received an e-mail saying my table had been sold and a check would be in the mail and I received it. If only all businesses were run so well, the USA would be doing just fine.

Hi Emily,

Please tell Joe we really appreciated his help.  He was great to work with and did an excellent job.  We are really really happy.  Please tell him that if we ever need pool moving services again we will definitely call again.  Also, if anyone we know needs his services we will recommend him.

Thank you very much,

Alex and Andrena

Hey Joe & Emily:

Want to thank you for your help in getting me in on the American Heritage table that you installed recently. Joe thanks for going out of your way with the delivery,(Joes truck was down and he had to make two trips to deliver the table from his house), his  professionalism showed thru in our dealings and he was helpful with suggestions and ideas, also willing to come back if anything wasn't right what with table settlings and such. Highly recommend independent billiard services to anyone interested in acquiring a pool table.

Thanks Joe

Hi Emily, Joe and Chris,

I am writing to thank you all for a perfect job setting up my 9' table.  The appointment and setup were both handled with courtesy and efficiency.  I watched Joe and Chris do the install.  These guys really know what they are doing.  They were efficient and meticulous in leveling/setting up the slate. They did not rush.  They spent as much time as needed to do a perfect job on the table.  They really seemed to care to have the table as good as can be.  My table has never played as well as it did after they were done with the setup.  I am now able to consistently make long shots on my 9' table.  This was not the case before they did the install.  Thank you for a job well done.  For anyone looking for a new/used table, need their table setup, or are changing the cloth, Do yourself a favor and speak to these guys.  You will be very happy with their skills.  These guys are professionals when it comes to billiards :).

Joe, Emily and Chris,

 Thanks for the great work that you did moving my old pool table for New York City to Connecticut.  Joe and Chris were in New York early and got started right away.  The pool table is very old and not in the best shape.  However, Joe saw that it had a sentimental value to me and treated it as such.  Joe and Chris worked hard on taking it apart, transporting it and putting it back together.  Thanks to them the table is in the best shape that it has been in for many decades!  Emily’s suggestion of the type and color for the table cover was right on the mark too.

 Thanks for a terrific job well done,

Emily & Joe,
I just want to thank you guys again for doing an excellent job on the table setup and felting. I have gotten many compliments on the table and how well it looks. I have been playing on the table for a couple months now and it has been great.

Joe Famiglietti was very helpful with my purchase of an Olhausen Champion Pro 9' tournament table from him.  Joe delivered the table, and installed it for me very efficiently.  He arrived on time for the install appointment (over an hour and a half travel time) and did an excellent job.
The table is level, looks and plays great.  You can be assured that Joe will take the time to do the job well. 

Thank you Joe it has been a pleasure doing business with you.

Hi Guys,
Thanks again for recovering my table and the new cushions. It's great I am loving it. Also I forgot to mention that the name "Famiglietti" is huge in Glen Cove. They used to own half the town as well as major sports figures.
