WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE HIRING PIANO MOVERS.
This information will make Hiring Piano Movers easy. Please understand that, Every piano move is different. Each one is priced according to certain factors including distance and difficulty. Difficulty reflects the piano’s current position in a building and its optimal path to the piano moving truck. Revers that to determine the difficulty from truck to the piano’s destination. The information you provide while booking a piano move determines the price of the move. It is important to be as accurate as possible so that the piano movers arrive properly prepared for your unique piano moving situation. Failing to do so can very possibly incur extra charges.
- Here’s a list of the basic and most important info needed. Try to have all of it ready when you call:
- Address of both pick up and drop off location.
- Style of piano (upright or grand)
- Know if there any obstacles at either location such as tight angle turns, narrow doors, stair cases…
- Very important to know the dimensions. Specifically the height for an upright, and the length for a grand piano.
Important note; An upright Grand is NOT a grand piano. In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, retailers called some larger upright piano’s “Cabinet Grand Piano” or “Upright Grand Piano” as a marketing ploy. A grand piano stands horizontally NOT vertically. They normally cost in excess of 40% and more to move than a regular upright piano.
Always use experienced piano movers even if you are obtaining a cheap second hand piano. Our piano movers are experienced, knowledgeable and adaptable to the circumstances of each unique piano move. Your treasured instrument is in the best possible hands but please don’t take our word for it, see for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
At the end of each piano move, we inspect the inside of the piano to make sure everything is in working order. Then we check the tone of the piano to see how much work is needed to get it sounding perfect! If the piano needs any minor repairs or adjustments, they can normally be done on the spot at little or no extra charge. A estimate for tuning is also given at this point.
