So, you’re finally ready for that big move. The boxes are packed, the rental truck is in the driveway, and you’re all set to go. But wait – what about the gigantic piano in the living room? How do you move it safely without damaging it or yourself? Moving a piano can be very difficult, especially if you have to go down a flight of stairs, into an elevator or through tight spaces and corners.
A piano is big, bulky and, not to mention, expensive. Even the most basic piano can have over 10,000 individual parts! Everyone likes to save money, and it might seem like a good idea to move your piano yourself, but professional moving company, Around Town movers, strongly disagrees.
Why Hire a Professional?
If there’s one thing we know about pianos, it’s that they can be a pain to move. We understand that most pianos are not only valuable in terms of money, but they are also valuable in terms of sentimentality. Many people attach special memories to their instruments and would like nothing more than to prevent them from being damaged.
Local movers understand this and take special care when relocating any piano – whether it’s an upright, baby grand or grand piano.
Believe it or not, movers are actually trained to handle pianos and take special care to remove legs, pedals, stands or anything else that might get damaged before loading it into the truck. Pianos are also placed on a piano board and wheeled around using a heavy-duty, four-wheel dolly so it is a lot easier to move it.
