Some Different Ways To Transport The Ping Pong Table

Divide the table into small pieces

This is one of the most obvious ways to transfer an enormous object. You divide the product into smaller pieces to put in your car; then you can assemble them back into the big one.

The ping pong table has three main parts: two sides of the surface and the table legs made from metal.

It’s easier when you transport these three parts than a monolithic table; you have to spend a little time doing some steps.

The only disadvantage of this method is you still have to take out some back seats to have a space to put the table in the car.

But you don’t need to divide the table into small parts if you buy a product that has foldable legs. With foldable legs, you only need to fold the metal legs of the table to the surface then put it into your minivans easily.

In my opinion, the best outdoor ping pong tables cannot miss this fantastic feature.

Put the ping pong table on the top the car

Instead of putting the table in the minivans, why don’t you think about keeping it on the top? You can transport a big product without losing any space in your car.

So how do you do it?

There is wonderful equipment named “carrack”, you can find it in any auto part stores or online shops. You just set up the car rack on the top of your minivans; then you can fix any big object on it for transporting.

The carrack on the top

Remember that when you take the ping pong table on the car rack, you must turn around the table and put the surface on the rack first.

Why we have to do that? Because some experiments have been done and the scientists conclude that anything enormous, stiff, and flat on the top will quickly become airborne in high velocity.

Therefore, transporting the big table with the legs standing on is nearly impossible.

Wrapping Up

From the information above, we have concluded that the ping pong table cannot fit the minivans.

However, you can adopt some other solutions we have showed you to have memorable table tennis matches outside with your friends.
