Piano moving

Piano moving is not a job for amateurs

Don’t risk the safety of your instrument. Insist on having it moved by a pro.

Individuals or household movers don’t have the training or the equipment, to safely move your piano

I can recommend friendly, professional movers. Over the years, I've come to realize who the best and friendliest are, and i can guide you there. In certain circumstances, I can offer to move your piano with you.

The average upright piano weighs between four hundred and a thousand pounds.  Grand pianos can weigh significantly more. 

Moving something of that weight, that is as delicate in nature as your piano, just should not be attempted without the right skills and equipment.

In some cases, the piano may need to be dismantled in order to get it out of your house.  Using an experienced, professional piano mover will drastically minimize the risk of damage, to the instrument and to your home.

Your piano will need to be tuned, after moving

You should consider having your piano tuned, within a few weeks of moving it. By that time, it will have become acclimated to the humidity of its’ new home, which can affect its’ sound production.  

Other things can change the way your instrument sounds, such as different acoustics in the new location. Hardwood instead of carpet flooring and the size of the new room compared to the former one, all can affect how the piano sounds to you. To achieve the best sound possible, ask Derek to give your piano a complete “check – up” after the move.

Remember, that any piano is heavy! Call the professional, who knows exactly how to move it. You’ll be happy that you did.
