  • Unscrew the pockets from underneath and then remove them. 
  • Then remove the bumpers and the corners. You will be able to do that once you have removed the pockets. 
  • Removing the felt is the third step. It is tricky because sometimes it is glued down. You need to be really gentle, but be ready for having to replace it anyway, because sometimes it is just impossible to remove it without damaging it. 
  • You will remove the slates next. There are usually 2, sometimes 3, and they can be quite heavy. Again, you will have to balance the strength and being gentle.
  • After you have removed the slates, unscrew the legs

So, consider putting them in a smaller container and then putting it in a bag, or something to that effect. Or simply hire packing services NJ to help you pack.
