For many piano owners, their piano is their pride and joy. It is indeed a large presence in any room and commands the attention of all who enter. Whether an upright, grand or baby grand, a piano is art. If it has been passed down from generation to generation, it is priceless art. Therefore, when a family is considering a move, it is critical that they hire experienced, professional piano movers.
Because of the piano’s shape and size, you want to be sure the professional piano movers you hire know what they are doing. Like with any moving company, be sure to check credentials and makes sure they are insured. During the move, make sure you know where your piano will be stored. Warping can take place in a short amount of time if the temperature of the space is extreme. Make sure the truck is climate controlled with rail lift gates. The outside of the piano needs to be protected, as well as the delicate internal parts. Be sure that the place you have picked out in the new space will hold your piano, check the measurements of the piano to be sure it will fit and will be accessible.
You may think that you only need a few strong men to help move your piano, but there is so much more that can go wrong and the best protection is in the prevention. Hire professional piano movers to be sure that your “art” will find its way safely into your new home.
