Piano Moving Tips

Pianos are very heavy and fragile items, as such a lot of precautions needs to be taken before moving one. Upright pianos carry all their weight on their top halfs and their legs and feet are fragile which needs extra hands to help. It is strongly advised to hire Professional Piano Removalists for piano moving but if you are ready to take the risk on safety of your valuable piano and your back, then take the following precautions.

  • It is very important to remove all the potential hazards before moving the piano i.e. removal of floor mats etc.
  • Pets should be locked in another room.
  • Children should not be running around.
  • Clear all the doorways and make sure that all the door are open by putting door stoppers to keep doors open.
  • Make sure that you have proper equipment i.e. piano trolley made with rubber tires so that not to leave marks on your floor. You should also arrange heavy duty stripes to tie the piano on to the trolley so that while moving, it may not slip from the trolley.
