The best foosball tables at sensible prices combined with as much or as little help and assistance
Hi, how are you? So you’d like to find out a little bit more about us? As these types of pages can be a bit boring, we’ll try and make it a bit more interesting for you and try to make it as relevant as possible. We thought the easiest way to do that would be to make this a kind of ‘FAQs-meets-Q&A’. So enough of the waffle, here’s the hard facts that you want to know:
About Game Room Equipment UK
Q: How long have you been in business?
A: We started in January 1998, originally as a wholesale snooker and pool equipment importer from the Far East. The company name has changed a couple of times since then and at that time, we went under the name of World of Billiards Ltd
Q: What’s your experience?
A: Before establishing WoB in 1998, we’d already had over 10 years experience in the commercial and residential amusement/game room supply industry. We were lucky enough to spend a lot of time exploring and investigating manufacturers of all shapes and sizes from Chicago to Taipei. Whilst it might sound glamorous, standing in a warehouse full of chalk dust, or another knee-deep in wood carvings, really makes you understand what this industry is really all about. More importantly it teaches you to understand that whilst something may look incredible, the way it’s put together may mean in practice, it’s a complete dog of an item. Without that experience stretching back well over 1/4 century, it’s all too easy to simply offer prospective customers (you!) goods that simply aren’t up to the level of quality they should be
Q: Which manufacturers do you work with?
A: Well this kind of emphasises what we said above. Right now we are proud to be working with Rene Pierre and Stella Loisirs as we have found these two manufacturers to offer the best quality:performance of any manufacturer currently making tables
Q: Other companies offer many more brands than you – why do you limit what we can buy from you?
A: There’s a simple explanation for that. Say you go to one of our competitors and you like one of their pool tables. You contact them and quite rightly ask them straight out, ‘Is this table the best made and best playing table I can get for my budget?’ They can’t really say anything else other than yes can they? So what about the other tables they are offering at that price range? If you’d have chosen one of those would you be buying a sub-standard product, or would that too be the best you could buy?
In our opinion the only reason for offering so many options is to make sure they can try and hook you into something (probably anything in fact!). If they really cared, they would have taken the time to investigate the manufacturer and determined one was the best and then decided to work with them. Of course there are times when one manufacturer cannot offer a broad enough range to cover all budgets which is why we work with three foosball companies, but for pool tables, Toulet offer tables from less than £2k, right up to over £25k, with each one fully customisable. They look great and play great too and in our opinion are the best you can get right now.
That might not be the case in ten years time. If it’s not, then we’ll work as hard as we can to find the company that does provide the best. Since 1998, we’ve partnered some of the biggest names in the game room supply industry. If they don’t provide the quality or the range that is required for us to offer, then we simply find someone who can. You pay a lot of money for a pool or foosball table. Don’t you think you really deserve the best, or just something some salesman thinks you want to hear?
Q: Why should I buy from you?
A: Well there are many reasons already highlighted above, but also because you’re dealing with the people that rely on this business being successful. When you contact us to enquire about a product, or even to make a purchase, you’re dealing with the owners of this business. Unlike many of our competitors who prefer to remain anonymous (unless their staring in their own videos!), this is our business and no-one understands it like we do. You will not get fobbed off with some sales person who last week was selling mobile phones. You deal direct with the owners. The buck really does stop here.
So, how we can help..?
