How to move your piano safely?

Moving a piano is not a child's play. It is an extremely difficult task involving great levels of responsibility and risks. If you plan to move the piano by yourself it would result in damaging the piano as well as yourself. By seeking your friends' help, you may even put them in danger. So it is highly suggested that you must hire professional piano movers for moving your piano.

Pianos generally come in four types and each type requires different strategies for moving it. The spinet piano is the smallest design and is built in two sections. It would cause great difficulty to reassemble the piano if you try to disassemble it or even the front legs. Moreover, the spinet pianos are mainly antique pieces and the wood will get damaged if you disassemble it. The pianos should be wrapped in moving blankets and never stack heavy boxes on its top.

The upright pianos are medium sized but are heavier since they are made of heavy wood and hardware. Such type of pianos should be completely covered in moving blankets after arranging it in truck bed. Even though the baby grand piano is larger than upright, they are not heavy. It would be better to remove the wing and cover the piano top in cardboard to protect it from scratching. Usually the professional piano movers would remove the legs before transporting it. It should also be wrapped in moving blankets. The grand piano is the largest and heaviest among all. The piano movers take great care while wrapping and placing it in trucks.

The piano movers specialize in handling and moving the pianos. They have methods to safeguard the instrument as well as themselves. Sometimes, they would hoist the piano from a window or balcony when the stairs are too weak or narrow. The professional piano movers would also carry liability coverage in case of any damages to instrument and house as well.
