Techniques involved in moving piano

All the professional piano movers in Chicago make use of almost similar process for moving a delicate item like the piano. The advantage of hiring piano movers is that they know exactly the right techniques of packing and carrying a piano for piano moving without causing any damage. They carry the operation of moving a piano with the help of specialized piano moving equipment.

While moving a piano, the instrument is usually placed on a special skid known as piano board. The piano will be strapped to the board after covering it with the quilted moving pads. Sometimes a piano dolly which is a small platform on wheels would be used if it needed to be moved over a leveled surface. Depending upon the situation, the dolly would be rolled towards a truck or a stairway. Once the dolly reaches the stairway, it is removed and the piano is then slid slowly in a controlled manner. Thus the balanced is maintained up or downstairs. For moving and placing the instruments onto the truck, ramps would be used.

There would some changes in the way giant pianos would be moved. Usually the piano moving company in Chicago would move the giant one on its side that is straight side down. The removable parts would be detached from the piano. The lid and the pedal lyre would be removed in the first place. Later they would remove the leg at the straight side of the piano. Later the piano would be carefully lowered downs so that it can be placed on the piano board. Once it is placed, the remaining two legs would be removed and then the item device would be covered using moving pads. It would be strapped to the board with the help of stretch wrap. Usually the grand piano is comparatively thin compared to the upright one and it can be easily carried through doors or any openings.

The professional piano movers would apply different strategies for moving pianos to and from inconvenient places. It is indeed a difficult task to move pianos through the flights from an apartment that is at a higher floor. In such situation, a freight elevator that supports the piano would be of great help. However if the elevator is not available, the Chicago movers would hoist the piano with the help of a crane through a balcony, window or any other opening.
