HERE’S HOW THE PIANO MOVING PROCESS WORKS
Pianos can add a touch of class to any home. While being a beautiful instrument to play, they can also be the centerpiece, or showpiece of any room.
A couple of downsides to owning a piano: they’re bulky, heavy, and awkward to move. That’s not a huge deal when it’s sitting squarely in your living room. It becomes a bit of an issue when you decide to move to a new house. Yikes.
Moving a piano is no small task. Proper planning, preparation, and technique is required—along with some serious muscle. To properly move a piano, the skill of the mover has to be “finely tuned” to the task at hand. If you haven’t noticed, pianos aren’t exactly mobile. Some unfortunate souls attempt to move a piano on their own. This is frankly a disaster waiting to happen. Pianos can be damaged. Houses can be damaged. Human bodies can be damaged. It’s just not a good scene. Moving a piano is a skill, just like playing one is.
HOW TO MOVE A PIANO
The best advice anyone can ever give you if you’re wanting to move a piano is to hire professional piano movers. They’ve got the experience necessary to ensure your piano, and back, stay intact. Pianos weight anywhere from 300 to 1000 pounds, so definitely not lightwork.
Preparation is key. Moving blankets are absolutely essential to protect both the piano and the home itself. They’ll protect the beast from scuffs and scratches. There is a special piano board called a skid board that a professional piano mover will use to help them.
Exact measurements are required for every room and area that a piano is going to be moved into or through. This ensures no moving day disasters. You know, the kind where you realize you need to sell your piano in order to move into your new house. Proper disassembly of the piano is absolutely essential. This should be done by the professionals. There are a lot of moving parts to a piano, and pianos are very expensive. The people who disassembled the piano should be the same ones who put it back together. Also, proper labelling of all parts should be done to ensure every little piece gets to its destination.
PROFESSIONAL PIANO MOVERS IN CANADA
I think it should be reiterated: HIRE A PROFESSIONAL PIANO MOVING COMPANY. Seriously. You won’t regret not having to do the work yourself when you see the undertaking required to move a piano. There are tons of great moving companies in Toronto, but make sure you go with one who have experience moving pianos. Ask questions, use this article as a guide and make sure they’ve got all the answers you’re looking for.
I needed to transport my piano into the new condo we’ve rented with my girlfriend, so I asked GetMovers for a truck. We got a quick response from the call center and the team was available right on the next day. They even helped us with loading, so I’m absolutely satisfied with the services.
