Why Hire Professional Piano Movers?

By hiring professionals, you avoid the risk of personal injury. You don’t have to rely on friends or family or risk them getting hurt as well.

Your local moving labor Service Providers will make sure to protect the piano from damage during the move — whether the move is to a new home, to another room, or to a room that’s up two flights of stairs.

Another aspect is how much time and effort you’ll save. You can focus your energy and time on other parts of your move that have to be done. You’ll utilize the experts, and they can use the moving equipment you rented or bring their specialized equipment.

It’s a cost-effective decision when you hire piano movers. While you’ll spend more upfront, it’ll be worth it if you can avoid costs against potential damage to your piano, home, or a person.

By having the right equipment, you can proficiently transport the piano without worrying about additional expenses.

Preparing for the Piano Move

Once you book your Moving Help order, your Service Provider will reach out to you within 48 hours. This will give you a great opportunity to communicate with your moving labor team.

You can provide accurate details about the move. For example, you can mention whether you have an upright piano, a grand piano, or another type of piano. You can explain where the piano is located in your home and where you want it to be moved — your truck rental or a different room. 

You can explain what rooms, doorways, and hallways they might have to pass when moving your piano. If you have a tight hallway or door frame, this is a great opportunity to mention it to your helpers. 

Finally, you can address any specific concerns about the piano, moving the piano, or any specific instructions you have for your Moving Helpers. This will be an opportunity for you to answer any questions the provider might have for you.

The next step will be to ensure the piano is ready before moving day. 

You might plan on securing loose parts and accessories prior to your Service Providers arriving at your home. You should make sure this is all done prior to them arriving for a smooth day. If your moving labor providers are handling the loose parts or accessories, make sure they have everything needed to get the job done.

You can protect the piano with moving blankets, which you can rent from U-Haul. This will help pad and protect your piano during the handling and transportation of your musical instrument. 

Supervising the Move and Aftercare

While your professional Service Providers will take care of the piano job, you or someone you trust needs to be onsite during the move. Your Moving Helpers might need your assistance with logistics or access to your home. They’ll want to make sure everyone is on the same page before they move your piano.

Other than that, you can sit back and relax while your piano moving labor team carefully and safely move your piano in an efficient manner.

Once your piano is situated in its new location, you’ll want to consider two factors. 

The first factor to consider is when to tune piano after the move. The average recommended time to wait to tune a piano is about three weeks, but most experts agree you could wait anywhere from two to eight weeks. 

The second factor to consider is piano maintenance tips for the new location. You’ll need to be aware of the piano’s surrounding environmental factors to make sure you’re keeping it properly maintained, so the piano has a longer lifespan.
