Why Hiring Professional Piano Movers Should Be Your Best Decision

Why Hiring Professional Piano Movers Should Be Your Best Decision

Pianos are one of the hardest instruments to move; they’re heavy, awkwardly shaped and sized, and often worth a small fortune. Not hiring professional movers for piano relocation means risking costly damage. 

For instance, upright pianos with cast-iron backs are incredibly heavy and need an experienced moving team with the right equipment, while most grand pianos require disassembly to get them through the door. 

A piano moving company will have specialized lifting equipment and knows the correct moving techniques to relocate these instruments through challenging spaces. As affordable piano movers, we know what we’re doing and will treat your piano with great care while handling it.

Types of Pianos We Move

The smallest of upright pianos, spinets measure between 36” and 40 feet tall from the floor to the tops of the lid and weigh about 300 pounds.
The vertical strings of upright pianos makes them more compact and playable in limited space. These instruments usually measure around 48 inches tall (or more) and 58 inches wide.
Grand pianos are commonly used for concerts and recordings. They produce a superior tonal quality because their strings are set horizontally to the ground.
Designed to emulate an acoustic piano’s sound and feel, these electronic instruments are usually built in three arrangements; upright, in a cabinet, or on a keyboard stand.
A hybrid of a wind and keyboard instrument, organs produce sound as air vibrates in pipes. They’re typically located in churches, but smaller cabinet ones can be housed at home.
From harpsichords to celestas, antique pianos, and more, we have the technical expertise to move these big and beautiful instruments without worry.
How our storage works

Our Piano Moving Process

1

Moving Estimate

As affordable piano movers, we provide upfront and transparent pricing once we understand your piano’s sensitivity to being handled. Our estimate factors in the appropriate method of packing and handling, as well as the team needed for moving your piano.
2

Planning

Our assigned project manager will assess your current and future premises, as well as your piano, to plan an efficient move. Narrow and awkward spaces, like doors, passages, and stairs, influence whether your piano needs to be disassembled and reassembled. Through detailed planning, we assign the correct crew and methods.
3

Disassembly, Packing & Transportation

Our piano moving service crews use premium padding and materials to cushion instruments during travel. If need be, we will expertly disassemble your piano before strategically loading it into our van. We make sure to carefully label and pack each part, so nothing is lost along the way.
4

Unloading & Reassembly

Once we arrive at the new location, we carefully unload the piano and the rest of its parts to reassemble in the space in the way you’ve specified. We make sure there’s enough room through doorways and pathways to prevent inconvenience and damage.
5

Packing & Transportation

Piano transportation is a delicate process, and we have the experience to ensure it goes smoothly and safely. We take great care to transport your piano so there won’t be any damage. From packing to transportation, your piano is safe with us.

OUR HAPPY CLIENTS’ REVIEWS

Great moving company to use for your move. They are communicative, responsive, professional and honest. They confirm the appointment and details few days before your move day and arrive promptly within the window they tell you. The crew is professional, fast, efficient, careful and knows what they are doing. Really a great orchestration between the team members. Use this company to secure and assist to take away one piece of the typically stressful move process. Highly recommend them.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to move a piano? Do you offer same-day delivery?

Piano relocation won’t take our expert crew longer than a few hours within a working day. We strive to provide same-day delivery; however, this is dependent on the distance between the new and old locations.

Can you guarantee that my piano doesn’t get damaged during relocation?

Our professional piano movers ensure pianos are covered with the correct padding and stretch wrap during the move. They will disassemble legs, pedals, music stands and anything that may comprise the instrument's safety, before reassembling the piano on-site at its new home.

How much does it cost to move a piano in Chicago?

We calculate costs individually for every case. If you fill in our online form [insert link] we’ll provide you a quote, so you can budget accordingly. The type of piano, whether it’s part of other moving services, and the distance traveled will influence the price.
