Piano moving is skill that requires the use of strength and knowledge of how to disassemble a piano. The process of piano moving requires taking apart the piano’s pivotal parts and caring for them separately during moving. This helps lighten the weight of the piano, making it easier for movers to move the base and its add-ons.
The process of moving a piano requires special attention to the piano’s interior and accessories. When we begin the moving process, we disassemble parts of the piano that are easily removable and add extra weight to the instrument. The parts that are usually removed include the piano lid, pedals, legs, and protruding hardware. We use protective measures to cover the keys and strings, as these are delicate and vital to the make up and function of the piano. We then boast the piano base onto quilt-like moving pads that allow us to slide it from one location to another.
The equipment used when moving a piano ranges but usually consists of moving pads, dollies, cables for security, and ramps to get the piano safely bolstered into a moving truck or van. While most of the equipment can be purchased for at-home use, we recommend only letting professionals operate it, as it can be harmful to those that are unaware of how to use it properly. Having a full supplies of the right equipment is important to moving a piano effortlessly and carefully. Without the right equipment, the piano could suffer potential damages, scratches, scathing, cracks, and dents.
We offer piano moving services for domestic transport, or those moving within a certain proximity. Since pianos are heavier items to move and can be very delicate if not cared for appropriately, they can succumb to moving damages if moved for too long distance. To maintain the integrity of the piano, we’ll always speak with you first about your moving expectations to determine where you’re off to and if moving the piano there is feasible. We are flexible with our clients and do our best to work with them on delivering the highest quality of piano moving services available.
