Moving a piano: how to handle it?

Moving a piano can be quite a tricky business. It is a heavy weight item that needs to be moved as precisely as possible. If something on the piano breaks, you might have to pay a significant amount to get it fixed. The wise thing to do is ask a moving company to move your piano. In this way, the chance of moving the instrument safely remains the highest. A number of things to consider when moving your piano:

Moving with a piano

Tidily inform the moving company you will need to move a piano. There are two adult experts necessary to carry this out. If there is only one person involved, it might cause difficulties.

Piano specialist

If your preferred moving company does not move pianos, there is always a piano specialist to help you. They are experts in this area and are able to advise and help you the best way possible.

Insurance

Check if the piano is insured before you decide to move it. It would be a shame if the piano falls from the fourth floor or if there is another problem driving you up to unexpected costs.

The more floors, the higher the cost

Some moving companies will charge you extra if you live on a higher floor. Communicate this beforehand and see if they will charge you extra. It is nice to be aware of any additional costs, before you are charged a great amount at the eighth floor.

Doing it yourself

Have you decided to do it yourself? Check to see how you are insured. This way, you will be aware of any costs in case something goes wrong. We do however encourage you to consult a moving company; we feel it is important to let strong men do the heavy lifting. Good luck!
