Moving a Piano Requires Professional Help
Packing and Moving a Piano Requires Professional Help
Moving is stressful. No matter how far you are going or how much packing you have finished, moving causes physical and emotional stress. When you add bulky and fragile items, the anxiety just burgeons. Pianos are such delicate yet bulky items that need lots and lots of extra care while relocating. Even when you are trying to move a piano down a flight of stairs, you have to be super careful with the edges, the keys, and the turns.
Proper planning is always the beginning of a satisfactory moving venture. If you have no experience in moving heavy and fragile objects, a DIY attempt may prove to be hazardous as many things can go wrong. With items such as heavy boxes, glassware in bubble wrap, and lampshades, we know you can wing it. When it is something like a piano, the real struggle begins.

We Can Help You with Added Safety Measures!
There are times when our clients ask us for advice about piano storage. It usually happens when they are downsizing. In such cases, you may decide to store pianos in rental storage units. Pianos in storage units need extra care to protect them from pests, dust, dirt, and moisture. If you need help with temporary storage, we can provide additional careful packing that your piano needs to maintain its tune.
We always advise our clients to tune their piano at least after three weeks of moving to a new location. The time allows the instrument to adjust to the atmosphere. The tuning attempts are often successful after the piano acclimates to the new space. Everything you need to know about safely moving a piano is right here https://a1pioneer.com/piano-safe-moving/.
