Things to know before hiring piano movers

Piano is an antique and priceless possession. So you would surely don't want to take chances while moving it. You would probably be hiring a professional piano mover for managing the task. It would be better to keep certain things in mind before hiring professionals.

The main thing to be noted is that the piano would be picked up and would be delivered directly to the destination. To be precise, the service should be door to door delivery. If you're going for overseas piano moving, you must seek the details of the ship's journey. On the moving day, you must ask the piano movers for country specific information and make sure that the movers are going for airtight packing of the piano. For overseas piano moving, it is vital to receive import duties and rules and regulations from the movers. It is also good to take some packing tips from your movers if you are doing it yourself. It would help to ensure the safety of the piano and that it would reach the destination in proper shape.

It is better advised not to try and move a piano yourself or with the help of your friends. Try to understand the moving tips and ensure that you follow all instructions carefully before moving. While you are selecting piano movers, look out for the experienced ones who would know how to execute their job professionally. In USA moving and storage, the movers are skilled and trained so that a safe move is guaranteed. Before hiring them, be clear with the way they deal. This can be done by reading their FAQ section. Understand the terms and conditions of the company before selecting them. Always go for a piano mover who would give an insurance cover. Such an insurance coverage guarantees that the moving company would take care of all the costs if the piano is stolen, scratched or damaged in any ways during moving.

Prepping the piano before moving is yet another important task. Proper care should be given while wrapping the piano. The wrapping process goes like this; first you have to close the piano, take thick soft blankets and wrap up the whole of it and later secure the blankets with tapes so that it stays in place. You must make sure that the tapes are not directly attached to the surface of the piano as it might spoil it during unwrapping. If you do proper wrapping, the piano is safe from the risk of scratches and any other damages.

Remember to contact the professional piano movers early enough so that they would get a chance to look at the dimensions of the piano and the destination place. Thus they can make an understanding of which truck to use, the work force required and if any major equipments are required. If the piano has to be moved out or into the house through windows, the movers would require cranes. Keep an eye to see if the piano is being moved slowly and is not banged against anything.
