Essentials for Moving a Piano

Many times the moving of a piano is a frightening thought, and it might become a nightmare if you’re undergoing this experience for the very first time. Even the most minor of piano mishandling could become costly and potentially cost you a lot of money. Pianos are very large and have unwieldy shapes that are hard to deal with, which makes moving them extremely challenging and time-consuming. This is especially true for moves which originate from the home due to small doorways and odd stairways. It is possible to save a ton of time and money if you go with professional piano movers when you need your cherished instrument moved to a new location.

Locating the proper piano mover


It’s important to remember that you should never rush into picking a piano moving service; choosing the wrong one could be disastrous. For instance, a bad piano mover will attempt to ‘Key Board’ a piano. This process includes removing a piano keyboard in order to fit your piano into cramped spaces. Unfortunately, this could destroy a piano, or at the very least make it impossible to return to its original state.

Never forget that you should ask your potential piano mover about the insurance coverage of your piano being moved. In most instances, the coverage they’ll carry will be more than enough, yet if you think that more is required, you could speak with your private insurance agent.

The piano is one of the costliest and most sensitive musical instruments. Even small movements or changes in temperature during a move may affect the sound of a piano. Therefore, it’s important for you to make sure that the movers use standard practices and won’t store it close to heating ducts, windows, or door in which temperature alterations are expected.

Be certain that you provide specific and clear directions concerning delivery and pickup points. Door-to-door service is always preferred, but other arrangements can be made.

The proper expert piano mover will possess unique tools for the job, such as a piano dolly, heavy duty handcarts, and other specialized pieces of equipment.

We ensure the safety of your piano during the move


The most vital portion of piano moving includes its packing. It’s a delicate process, since we are dealing not only with the look of the piano but also protecting its sound. Wrapping your piano in pads and blankets is important to save its surface from scratches. They are amongst some of the most delicate musical instruments and the safety of their internal parts should be of the utmost importance when moving them.

It’s equally vital that you be certain that, prior to you initiating the move from pickup toward the delivery point, the pathway between the pickup point to the truck is clear of every obstacle which might hinder that portion of the moving process. This is true of at the delivery point as well. Another critical point is to measure the dimension of your destination room, as it must have the ability to comfortably accommodate the piano.

Keep in mind that expert assistance in moving a piano is of the utmost importance. Doing it alone is dangerous and typically will result in damages which outweigh the expected savings. We’re ready to give you an estimate of piano moving costs, so click here to find out more.
