Moving a piano securely from one location to another takes specialized equipment and skills. Several factors are considered when planning safe piano transportation. These include the manpower needed, the type being moved, and most importantly, the piano weight. Different pianos can weigh from about 8kgs to over 550kgs.
Vertical pianos come in different kinds, and their weights vary depending on the one you have. This variation is based on the size and the wood used to make the piano. There are four major types of vertical pianos:
The large size of grand or horizontal pianos makes them very cumbersome. Before grand piano transportation, it is usually disassembled owing to its difficult shapes. This means that the safe movement of a horizontal piano requires experts with specialized equipment. The smallest of this kind weighs about 180 kgs while the largest measures up to 550 kgs. Common examples of horizontal pianos are baby grand and concert grand pianos.
Electric pianos are the lightest and weigh anywhere between 8 and 25 kgs. However, some digital pianos weigh about 45 to 150 kgs and resemble spinet pianos.
Whether you want to relocate across the country, blocks opposite the road, or overseas, you need an expert piano mover to ensure your instrument is moved safely. Specialist piano movers are skilled in disassembling and reassembling pianos and have the necessary equipment to ensure secure piano transportation.
