Pianos are some of the most beautiful instruments known to man. But as amazing as they are for music, they can be exceedingly difficult to move. Pianos have routinely been one of the reasons why movers were called in the first place. But what makes them especially difficult to move, should you invest in movers, how much will it cost, and is it worth it? As all these questions may crop up, we’ve decided to briefly describe the types of services we provide and let you decide whether it’s worth your time.
Moving is no small feat on its own, after all, so why make it more difficult by trying to transport something so problematic to move in general. The truth is, sometimes the best way to transport antique pianos, without damaging anything, is through a crane to the window. While this might be an exception, it should give you an image of the lengths piano enthusiasts will go to preserve their family inheritance or prized possession. Let’s start with one of the main reasons why moving your piano with the help of professional movers and packers might be worth your time.
Intricate inner workings
Pianos are notorious for detail and work that goes into both constructing and supporting them. A qualitative piano will last for decades, provided it is taken diligent care of. While they might need some tuning, the genius of this instrument is its unchanging nature – once it’s installed and taken care of, it should keep producing excellent music for as long as necessary. Moving it means taking that guarantee in your hands, and having to be incredibly careful with it. Nobody wants to break something so important, much less the owner.
The piano holds strings that are attached to mechanisms, all of which are connected firmly, yet are individually fragile. If overuse can damage them, what do you think turning it over will do? When moving a piano, it’s heavily recommended to get a specialized piano moving company. Regular moving companies, who aren’t trained in moving pianos will often refuse to move the piano altogether, knowing how easily it may get damaged or dysregulated. Naturally, this will incur significant costs down the line when you will have to fix it up. An investment into moving it guarantees that you won’t have to pay potentially bigger costs down the line.
When moving a piano, exceptional care needs to be given to the way it works: turning it over, moving it too quickly or any sharp drops could significantly damage the inside mechanisms which keep it working. However, on the other hand, pianos are massive. They easily weigh more than a single human can typically carry, and require twice the hands to move it, as it needs to be kept stable throughout the moving process.
Add to it the fact that they’ve got a giant frame, and even getting them through the door without risking significant costs down the line isn’t a simple task.
