Moving a Piano the Right Way

When you move your home or office from one location to another, the process can be complex—but that doesn’t have to be the case. At New York Local Movers, we provide the expertise needed to move everything from small apartments to large corporate offices. Whether you’re moving across town or across the country, you can trust us to do the job efficiently at a price you can afford. When moving larger, more complicated items like pianos, you will need our experience even more, because items such as these take longer to move and need to be handled a certain way to reduce the chances of something going wrong.

Moving a Piano—How Is It Done?

Pianos are delicate instruments that must be kept upright throughout the moving process. This will keep the piano in tune while it’s being moved, which means it probably won’t need to be re-tuned when it gets to its final destination. New York piano movers also make sure the following rules are obeyed when moving a piano:

  • Making sure the piano doesn’t fall on or near anyone and cause harm
  • Making sure the piano’s finish doesn’t get chipped or damaged
  • Making sure the internal parts of the piano aren’t damaged
  • Making sure the move occurs without losing or damaging the legs or pedals
  • Making sure the floor is protected at all times so it is not scratched

There are certain ways to move pianos, and they cannot be moved by just one or two people. It is recommended that moving a piano only be done by professionals who have specific experience in moving these intricate musical instruments—companies like New York Local Movers. We have moved hundreds of pianos, and we take our time with the task, taking our responsibility seriously. We will make sure everything is done to ensure that both the piano and those around it will be safe from harm. Trusting your piano to us means being able to relax and not worrying about any damages occurring to either the instrument or to those moving it.
