Piano Moving

Moving your piano may seem like a daunting task, but we have you covered. We possess a wealth of experience in transporting all sizes of grand pianos, baby grands and uprights from one location to another – whether from apartment to apartment, or county to county. Only trained professionals should move your piano to ensure a safe and seamless transport of your valuable instrument.

We place all pianos on a piece of specialized equipment called a piano board. The piano is first covered by pads, protecting its surface. We detach the piano legs, pedal lyre and lid, then place the piano on the piano board to tranport it on a dolly – up or down stairs to your preferred location. We can also hoist your piano if it cannot be moved through hallways and doors. We have hoisted many pianos and can provide references and estimates for both standard moves and special hoists.
