Here are 5 reasons why you need to hire professional piano movers.
1.Pianos Are Heavy and DelicatePianos are very heavy, and the grand pianos can even weigh up to 1400 pounds. This means that you will need every bit of help to move it. Don't forget that they are incredibly fragile as well. Their mechanisms are very delicate, and breaking a string or two is easy. You don't even need to drop the piano. Just bumping it against a wall is enough to do the damage.
2.It Isn't Easy to Navigate Complex Paths With a PianoWhen moving houses, you relocate your piano from some corner of your home, carry it through spiraling staircases, or squeeze it through narrow doorways. It is relatively easy to bump it against a wall and chip your wall's paint or scruff your tiles. The inner workings of a piano can be damaged, and professional piano movers know how to navigate it slowly and take their time.
3.Increased Chances of Damage and BreakagePianos are an expensive and beloved piece of art, and their transport is very much vulnerable to accidents or damage to the piano. Moving a piano always requires more than one person, and professional piano movers know their specific tasks and how to coordinate among themselves to ensure proper communication during a piano's transport. This reduces the chances of dropping or accidentally hitting your piano on a surface.
4.You Don't Have the Professional ExperienceProfessional movers know how to dress for the job. They wear stable shoes, comfortable clothes, and gloves to secure their grip on the piano. They know how to balance the heavy weight of the piano and prevent any injury to the movers and the piano. Sometimes the legs of the piano need to be removed so that it is lighter and easier to move. Professionals know how to reattach the legs when the piano is settled in its new location.
5.Different Pianos Need Different Moving TechniquesGrand pianos need to be disassembled and reassembled correctly in the new location. While moving upright pianos, one needs to cover their keys and pedals with bubble wrap, and a packing sheet or towel should secure the piano lid. Professional piano movers know how to position their team around the piano, there should be at least two people on the sides of the piano, and a third person must be available to slide the dolly underneath the piano.
