OK… So I Need To Move My Pool Table

A pool table is big and heavy. How should I go about moving it. My first thought is to call a few buddies to help move this monster. It should be easy right. First I persuade them to come over with an offering of beer and pizza, of course I’ve gotta invite at least one buddy that has a full size pick up truck. Once they are all here and have been a little loosened up from some suds, we’ll shoot a few games of stick and get ‘er done. One, two, three… lift. CRACK!!! What was that? That was a piece a slate that just broke because I was too cheap or maybe just too stupid to go out and hire a professional pool table mover. Yup it’s true what they say “being stupid hurts”, in this case it’s gonna hurt my wallet.

pool table hall So what is the right way to move a poo table? I think I just stated it a few sentences back: HIRE A PROFESSIONAL POOL TABLE MOVER. Since then I’ve had to call a billiards repair service to come out and complete the move that me and my buddies started but soon abandoned after ruining my slate. These gentlemen also repaired/replaced my broken slate and I said what the heck, as long as your at it go ahead and replace the felt too. Awesome choice by the way. My pool table is set up, perfectly level and has brand spanking new felt covering on it now. Oh it looks like new, now I don’t feel so bad about messing it up in the first place because it lead me to go out and find a professional billiards company to help me out.

So now I’d like to give a shot out and a very high recommendation to these fine gentlemen that helped me out of a tight jam. They were very clean, neat and professional and I’d highly recommend them if you need billiards services because they sent the best pool table movers Los Angeles, CA has to offer. I connected them to make sure it was OK to mention them in this blog post and as I expected they were more then happy to have their pool table company mentioned in such a light. They also asked if I could highlight their billiards company in Houston, Texas. Well here it is if their service in Texas is half as good as the one in LA then I would repeat myself saying “If you want the best pool table movers Houston, Texas has to offer give a call”, I am quite sure they will hook you up. And just to make sure that I’m not alienating their billiards shop in Las Vegas, you can find very fine pool table movers in Las Vegas as well. As always folks these are very fine establishments but do your due diligence whenever you are hiring or buying something… do your homework and you won’t surprised or disappointed.

Oh No, I Need A Tow Truck

Calling A Towing Service Can Be A Little Stressful

You’re on the way to work and the dash board catches your attention, you look down to see all your dash gauges flipping back and forth, that’s odd you think and just as you finish that thought you feel a loss in power, your car slows down even though with out thinking you’ve already been accelerating on the gas pedal. What you are experiencing is a vehicle that has lost it’s alternator, basically your vehicle just lost it’s power plant. You see a car battery is really only meant to help start the vehicle. Once the vehicle is running the battery is not really working (only in the event of a large draw in current), once the car is running alternator kicks in and starts generating the electricity required for your vehicle electrical system. The most important thing that it will provide is the spark that will keep the engine running, although that’s not entirely true now days because modern vehicles are so heavily reliant on the vehicles computerized management system that monitors sensor and control things like the electronic fuel injection system. Long story short you are stuck on the side of the road “up a creek with out a paddle”, so now what do you do? You call a tow truck right?

How Do You Find The Right

A friend of mine, who owns and operates the San Diego Towing Network, a local towing network in San Diego, California suggests that you call a few places before you actually commit to hiring a tow truck to come out. The manner in which they answer the phone call is very important, pay close attention to the following key things on the phone:

  • Courtesy – Is the dispatcher answering the phone polite, professional and courteous?
  • Knowledge – Does the tow dispatcher sound like he/she know what they’re talking about? Can they effectively answer all your questions? Are they even familiar with location that you are broken down at?
  • Sensitive Information – Are they asking for credit card information over the phone, why would you give out sensitive information to a total stranger?
  • Transparent Pricing – Is the way that they are explaining their fees extremely confusion, if so they might be running a scam on you. Beware.

Like I said earlier, our friends provide the best towing San Diego, CA has to offer and they really know what they are doing. Take the advice and tips that have been laid out above and hire a top notch towing company to get your car to the mechanic. Take it from a tow company that offers some of the best towing San Diego has to offer, our sponsors at San Diego Towing Network. They also offer Towing in Chula Vista and road service throughout San Diego South County. For more information about Towing visit the California Tow Truck Association website.

You’ve Decided To Go Solar – Let’s Do It Right

Ok, you’ve thought about it, you’ve researched it, and now you’re ready to get it done… Honey, we’re going Solar! Now that it’s go time you’ve got to hire an actual solar power contractor to do the actual work. How do we find a qualified solar contractor and what do we look for or more importantly what do we need to beware of?

Good Solar Contractor Companies Have Proper Licensing

A qualified solar power contracting company has a California C46 Solar Contractor License issued by the California Contractors State License Board. Good solar companies in San Diego have this type of license along with the proper insurance and workers comp coverage as well. This is the type of company that you are looking for, reputation is important, good online reviews are a positive sign and checking them out on the BBB website is also a good idea but if they are not holding the proper licensing and carrying the proper insurance and bonds then you really ought to run in the opposite direction, seriously run. This is the first glimpse into how irresponsible and unethical the ownership/management (or lack of management) of a company.

Top Solar Panel Contractors Have Real Life Testimonials

Have you ever had the unfortunate experience of hiring a company that you found on the internet that had nothing but stellar reviews but they ended up to be a total disappointment? I have and it’s pretty depressing because, in my case, I had really high expectations for the service and I basically ended up getting scammed and price gouged. The internet is a wonderful thing and I’ve connected with a ton of good businesses and services though online research but it does have it’s flaws and it’s dark side. There are a lot of companies out there that go to great lengths to fake a good reputation online and create a massive online presence but are nothing more that digital con-men. To ensure that you are starting a relationship with a company that has real life testimonials then I suggest that you ask for some past references up front. Most outstanding companies have clients and previous customers that love talking about them and all the great work that they have had performed by their beloved contractor, so if you want to become one of those happy people ask to speak with a few of them.


The Right CPR Training Class – BLS AED – AHA First Aid

Search-and-Rescue Workers Arrive in OfunatoFinding the right CPR Class is essential to your success as a first responder. There are many run of the mill, push them in push them out “training courses” out there. There are even online training courses! How an you competently become proficient in life saving through an online course? There’s no way.

First thing to do is start your search. If you are like most of us now days you might start with an internet search. There will likely be many results but are these business websites legit? Some may not be, but you can double check by verifying there certifications with the agency they claim to be certifying for eg RED CROSS or AHA. If they don’t check out, don’t even consider using them. There are also other professional associations that run checks on the legitimacy of local businesses like the Better Business Bureau. I would be a good idea to visit they’re and check to see if there are any complaints against the business, if there are check to see if the CPR Training company responded to or attempted to resolve the complaint. There are some cases where the customer is not always right and the First Aid Training company has a reasonable response or is willing to work with the disgruntled customer to make things right. But if there is several complaints against a company or a lack of response to any complaints them you want to avoid this kind of training facility all together. Once you’ve narrowed your search down to a few select classes then you want to give them a call and ask a few questions (have a few good questions written down, you can even through in a little bit of a tricky question too to test they competence and patience). Pay close attention to how they respond, this will be a small preview of what kind of CPR trainer you will be working with.

Find out a little bit about the actual instructor:

  • Is he versed in the trade (ex-law enforcement, paramedic or EMT, Firefighter, military, life guard)
  • What type of training certifications does he hold and are they current and up to date
  • Is he currently a member of any industry organizations

Finding the right CPR class makes all the difference. Make sure that you take a little time to do your homework and the chance are that you will find a perfect match.
