Using a professional piano mover will ensure safety and care when moving. Pianos are instruments and not pieces of furniture anyone can move. We have been out to many houses in the past where they have tried moving themselves or even with friends and they have either damaged their floors, themselves or even the piano. Upright and Grand Pianos are very heavy items, where the small upright pianos can weigh 400 pounds and larger pianos over 1000 pounds. Please note these items can be extremely difficult to move without correct equipment and adequate knowledge. People have even been killed, if the piano has broken castors or wobbly or spilt grand piano legs, this can be a leading cause for a piano to fall over and hurt someone. If it is knocked or moving incorrectly can cause fatal injuries to anyone, and also damage the piano seriously and this is just what you do not what to happen. So why choose a mover that has little if no experience moving a piano in the first place? Professional piano movers use certain techniques to maneuver the pianos around your homes.
