5 Tips For Piano Moving

May 29, 2008
Since pianos are very fragile and vulnerable to scratches, you need to make sure that movers care about the safety in moving the instrument just as much as you would. You want a piano mover who can take care of it from the moment it leaves your place to your desired destination.

You want a piano mover who is also capable of hoisting the piano in a safe way if the piano size does not fit through your door or stairway. This usually takes several strong people to accomplish this task. The piano should be covered with protective blankets so that scratches can be prevented.

An important factor to keep in mind is the exact measurements of the piano. Professional piano movers should want to know this before they state you a quote and to assess the home situation. This should be clear before moving to avoid any delays on the day of moving.

If you don't know the exact measurement, you need to contact your choice company so that they can send a member of their team out to accurately measure it for you. If you plan on moving the instrument yourself using moving pods then all you need to know is making sure you can get it out of your home safely.

If you plan on using door to door movers you're kind of in the same situation if moving an upright piano from room to room or house to house. You need to be able to trust the integrity of the mover. It really is a good idea to interview the movers to get a feel for how long they have been in the business.

Again, to finalize suggestions to keep your prized possession from getting unnecessary dents and scratches if you're not the one doing the hauling and transporting is to make sure that the piano movers you choose are the assigned team which should consist of four movers.

The ideal location for the movers would be positioned at each end of the piano. There should be two at each end of the piano. Make sure that you let no one other than the assigned piano mover's touch the piano at all times for the safety and liability of the movers.

The ultimate tip is to make sure the helpers are wearing work gloves to protect their hands. If you are the one going to move your piano make sure that you wear them as well.

This is a rule for anyone involved in the moving process. Whether you're utilizing a moving pod, professional piano movers or using a door to door service.
