Piano Moving Specialists | Safe & Secure Moves

Moving a piano is a complex task that requires specialized skills, equipment, and expertise to ensure the instrument’s safety and security. This page explores how our expert piano moving services can protect your valuable instrument during relocation, highlighting the equipment used and the professional handling techniques employed by our team.

Specialized Piano Moving Services:

Pianos are not only heavy and cumbersome but also delicate and expensive musical instruments that require meticulous care during a move. The process involves more than muscle power; it requires precision, patience, and a deep understanding of the instrument’s structure.

Specialized Equipment Used

At The Best Moving Company, we utilize specialized equipment designed specifically for moving pianos. This includes:

  • Padded Covers: To protect the piano’s finish from scratches and dents.
  • Heavy-Duty Straps: To secure the piano and prevent it from shifting during transport.
  • Custom-Built Dollies: Designed to handle the weight and size of various types of pianos, allowing for smooth movement across different surfaces.
  • Piano Boards: These are used to support the piano during transport, especially when navigating stairs or tight spaces.
  • Hoists and Cranes: For particularly challenging moves, such as lifting a piano through a window when stairways or elevators are not an option.

Expert Handling Techniques

Our professional movers are extensively trained in the best techniques for handling all sizes and types of pianos. Whether it’s an upright or grand piano, we know how to disassemble, transport, and reassemble your instrument with utmost care. Here are some of the techniques we employ:

  • Assessment and Planning: Our team assesses the piano and the environment before the move. This includes measuring doorways, staircases, and hallways to plan the safest and most efficient route.
  • Disassembly: For grand pianos, we carefully disassemble parts like the legs, pedals, and music stand. This makes the piano easier to move and prevents damage to these delicate components.
  • Padding and Wrapping: Each piano part is wrapped in padded covers to protect against scratches and dents. Special attention is given to the piano’s corners and edges.
  • Securing the Piano: The piano is securely strapped to the custom-built dolly or piano board, ensuring it remains stable during the move.
  • Careful Navigation: Moving a piano involves navigating tight spaces, stairs, and sometimes outdoor terrain. Our team is trained to handle these challenges, using techniques that minimize the risk of injury or damage.
  • Reassembly and Tuning: Once the piano reaches its new location, our team reassembles it with the same care and precision used during disassembly. We recommend having the piano tuned after the move to account for any minor shifts that may have occurred during transport.
