Moving a piano is a stressful task. Despite their size and weight, pianos are relatively delicate instruments. Moving them without the proper care and attention can cause damage to the internal mechanisms of the instrument. Hiring a professional piano mover will protect your instrument and your home during the move. Here are four reasons why you should hire a professional.

They can safely handle heavy weights

Pianos come in numerous shapes and sizes and are often quite heavy. This makes it difficult to handle even a smaller, upright piano. The heaviness of a piano is caused by the internal components designed using cast iron. The soundboard and piano casing is made of solid wood, contributing to the instrument's weight.

Moving a heavy piano on your own is dangerous. You might end up with a back injury or pulling a muscle if you try and pick it up, even with several people to help. Rather than risking your physical health, you should hire a professional piano mover. Professional piano movers don't lift pianos themselves. They use specialised equipment such as trolley to move your piano safely to its rightful place. They are experienced in handling and transporting heavy pianos without causing damage to the instrument or your home.

They will take special care

Professional piano movers have the experience and skill that handling and transporting a piano requires. A professional mover can offer the attention that your musical instrument requires at every stage of the moving process.

For instance, if your piano requires disassembling, they can disassemble it carefully without damaging the accessories. They will also ensure careful handling when moving a piano through difficult areas such as up or down a staircase or flight of stairs. After delivering your musical instrument to the new location, your movers can reassemble it and ensure it functions as required.

They have the appropriate moving equipment

Professional piano movers have the appropriate tools and trucks for safely handling and shifting your piano to your desired location. For example, when you hire expert movers, they will come with tools such as a piano board and a dolly that are vital in ensuring a piano's safe movement from a building to the truck.

Professional piano movers use special trucks that are designed to carry heavy pianos. These trucks support padding that makes sure that your piano is secure when the vehicle is moving. It is not possible to achieve this kind of protection if you chose to move a piano by yourself.

They can prevent damage

Pianos are heavy and hard to move. If you are not skilled at moving a piano, you can easily cause damage. This can range from damaging the piano to destroying the surroundings, including walls, floors, and doors.

Thus, hiring an expert piano mover will help you prevent such damage. These professionals use special techniques and tools that make the piano movement manageable and safer. Getting help from expert movers minimizes the likelihood of home mishaps such as dents or cracks on walls.

In conclusion, piano transportation can be a tedious process when done by an amateur. In fact, moving a piano on your own is risky when you consider the weight, shape, and delicate nature of this valuable musical instrument. So, a professional piano mover will save you the ordeal and have your piano moved securely and easily.

Service was great. Initial communication was great. The guys did a FABULOUS job of transporting the piano - they really handled it with care. Would have appreciated a phone call or message prior to delivery time, so it was lucky that someone was home when they arrived. Overall a great experience and the piano was well looked after. Recommend.

They definitely made sure to take care when moving my piano. Just a little delayed but they called in advance to let me know they were running late so it was all good in the end.
