      Move a Piano Yourself: Is It Worth?

      You need to have the strength and knowledge to move successfully. Every particular piano move requires experience that you can only get from previous piano moves.

      It's not recommended to move a piano without proper equipment, which was created to improve piano moving performance and make the process safer.

      • An apartment piano size or Spinet is pretty okay to move for an average mesomorph healthy person, from main to main floor, if extra care is taken and the correct technique is learned.
      • A grand piano needs to be disassembled and placed on its side before moving day.
      • Upright pianos or grand types vary in weight, and some weigh 600lb or more and require 3+ piano movers. Normally, two strong people are enough for the work to be done from main to main floor, up to 4 stairs, with a piano weight up to 250-300 lb.

      However, having more stairs or steps involved in piano relocation makes the process harder because stairs mean raising or lowering the piano at an angle.

      In these cases, the right experience really matters, as well as teamwork. Just think for a moment of crushing a foot or dropping the piano off the steps, not to mention scratches, dents, etc., on walls, floors, etc.

        The risks of moving a piano include damages from improper handling or environmental changes. Also, if proper equipment and techniques aren't used, lack of experience can lead to physical injury to the people involved. Inexperienced movers can also damage property, such as floors, walls, and doorways.

        Our experienced movers will take even long distance piano moving flawlessly.

        Before moving a piano with our company, it's important to provide specific details or concerns about your instrument. This could include its type, make, model, age, and any existing damage. Depending on this information we will offer you the best terms, in some cases grand piano moving may be required.

        We also need to know about the locations for pickup and delivery: are there any stairs, landings, narrow doorways, or tight corners? This information helps us to plan the move and ensure we have the right equipment and moving team members.

        Finally, you should understand the cost and what is included in it, our insurance coverage, and our policies for scheduling and cancellations. We want to make sure the entire process is transparent and straightforward.

        The legs of a grand piano are always removed for moving, but this typically isn't the case for an upright piano. However, some kinds of spinnet pianos have legs that can be detached.

        It generally takes at least two to four people to move one piano safely. However, the exact number depends on the piano's size and weight, the path and distance of the move, and the movers' physical capability and qualifications.

        To protect your piano when moving, it is often wrapped in shrink+ thick moving blankets and secured with straps on a piano skid board. The piano is moved using dollies to minimize the risk of injury or damage. Moving blankets are also used underneath to protect the floor. Also, one of the best protection is experience and adequate physical shape.

        Improper piano moving can indeed cause damage. Potential damage includes scratches or dents to the piano's finish, broken legs or pedals, and internal damage to the strings, hammers, or soundboard.

        Yes, a piano has to be tuned after moving. Changes in location, transportation, piano position, and environment can affect the tension of the piano's strings, leading to changes in sound. It's generally recommended to wait a week after the move to allow the piano to acclimate before tuning.

        Moving a piano is a very difficult task that requires exceptional moving skills, experience, physical strength, special equipment, and techniques. Pianos have delicate internal components and awkward shapes. They are very heavy but also very fragile. The cost can also reflect insurance coverage for potential damage. And also distance matters: local piano moving is cheaper than long distance transportation.

        While it's technically possible for an upright piano to be laid on its back, it's not generally recommended. The internal mechanisms of a piano are not designed to withstand the weight of the piano when positioned this way, which could cause damage.

        Hiring professional piano movers is highly recommended and advised because they have specialized training, equipment, and experience. We understand the complexities of moving a piano and how to minimize risks. We also provide insurance, which offers financial protection in the unlikely event of damage. Save your efforts, health, and money by hiring local community movers.

        Yes. Basic insurance is always included in the quote. Extended insurance options are available upon request.

        Moving a piano is difficult because of its size, weight, and fragile nature. Pianos can weigh anywhere from 300 to 1,000 pounds, and their irregular shape makes them awkward to maneuver and even handle. They also contain delicate internal components that can be damaged if not handled properly. Furthermore, their fine-tuning can be affected by movement and changes in the environment, making the moving process even more complex, sometimes extreme.

        Yes, if you need your piano and house to stay intact during transportation. Our Ontario professional piano movers have experience, equipment, skills, and adequate physical level for an accurate and stress-free move. Just imagine these guys making a living by moving pianos. It's their professional activity to relocate your piano safely.

        We use moving blankets under the piano board so we can drag it safely without scratching the floor. If the piano board is made of wood, it can still make scratches when touching the floor or tile. Also, we build our own custom-made heavy-duty moving dollies with rubber wheels only. Pianos are heavy, so plastic wheels can leave dents and scratches on the floor.

        It is not recommended to do it yourself. Improper techniques and a lack of experience can lead to serious injuries or even death. Piano moving upright or downstairs is a task we handle with great care. We use special piano skidboards, custom-made dolly, strong straps, and padded blankets, and our experienced team guides the piano step-by-step.

        The piano moving cost varies from $390 to $700+ and depends on several factors, including size and type of piano, seasonality, distance, complexity, and number of stairs. In our article on how piano moving cost can be calculated, we've looked in detail at all the factors that affect the cost and included a formula for calculating it.
