Around Town Movers provide excellent piano moving services because the founder of our company began his moving & storage career nearly 35 years ago as a piano mover in Maryland. For this reason and because of the many additional years of cumulative experience of our knowledgeable staff, we know all of the ins and outs and ups and downs of piano moving.
In fact, we are up for the most challenging of piano moving situations — in Maryland, DC and Virginia. Here is one recent example.
We received a call from a customer saying another well known local moving company couldn’t get her player grand piano up into the second story of her modern townhouse condominium. Initially, she sent us pictures of her situation. When we saw the pictures, we realized that this would require special attention and outstanding customer service. Even though most piano jobs are set up over the telephone, we went the extra mile to set up a time to visually survey the residence and evaluate the best way to complete the job. It ended up that we had to over-protect all the wood staircase and railings, removed the railings at the top of the stairs so we could quickly and safely make the turn at the top of the stairs. There was still 100 feet to go from this point, but Around Town Movers got it right to where the customer wanted it without a scratch to the piano or the floors.
Here are some pictures of this move:
