4 Reasons You Must Always Hire Professional Piano Movers

When you are moving to a new home, your friends and family members can help you move most pieces of furniture. However, your piano is not most furniture. This is a heavy, valuable, and very expensive piece of equipment and moving it without the right expertise and equipment can not only be challenging, but also dangerous.

If you do have a piano or organ that needs to be relocated, here are 4 reasons why you should always hire professional piano/organ movers:

1. Pianos Are Very Heavy

The smallest upright pianos, spinet pianos, weigh approximately 300-400 pounds. Larger instruments can weigh between 500-800 pounds, and grand pianos can even go up to 1,300 pounds! This is an incredible amount of weight and moving it without securing your back and protecting your other body parts can lead to serious injury.

Piano Movers Have The Right Equipment To Do The Job Safely

Professional piano movers come equipped with specialized piano moving equipment, such as moving trucks with motorized lifts that will load and unload your valuable instrument easily and safely, without any risk of injury to you or damage to your piano.



2. Pianos Can Be Easily Damaged

Appearances are deceptive. Your piano may seem very strong and indestructible, but in reality, they are very delicate and can be damaged quite easily. When done incorrectly, you could easily:

  • Scratch the exterior of your instrument
  • Break a leg or pedal
  • Ruin a string or hammer
  • Damage the internal sound mechanism and playing mechanism

Any damage could easily affect the sound of the piano, which can lead to costly repairs. Professional movers understand these issues and they know how to move the instrument without causing any damage to the piano’s mechanics.

3. You Can Damage More Than Just Your Piano

When you are moving your piano, you could cause a lot more damage than just scratches to your musical instrument! Pianos are bulky and odd-shaped, which makes them particularly hard to move through doorways and up/down stairs. If you don’t do it correctly, you could damage doors, scratch the paint and even cause holes in your walls.

Professional piano movers have the skills, tools, and know-how to prevent such accidents, saving you a lot of frustration and unnecessary moving expenses.



4. You’ll Save Money and Time and Protect Your Family

One thing you must understand ins that no matter how valuable your piano, there is something infinitely more important: the health and well-being of you and your family. Due to its extraordinary weight, a piano falls into the category of being one of the most dangerous things to move to a new home.

What does this mean?

Your DIY piano move attempt can lead to a serious moving day accident and personal injury, such as broken limbs, crushed fingers, or a hurt back.

This means that while you think you could be saving money moving a piano yourself, the price of seeing a doctor following an injury, as well as the cost of treatment and any follow-up procedures may far exceed the cost of using professional movers in the first place.
