How to Safely Move a Piano

If you have a piano you need to move but don't know how to go about doing so, the below tips should help you successfully and safely relocate your valuable and sensitive instrument.

Measure your piano

The first thing you'll want to do is measure your piano so you know exactly how big it is. Measure its height, width, and length using a measuring tape and write down the numbers so you don't forget them shortly after, necessitating another round of measurements.

Measure your doorways and chart a path

Now that you know how big your piano is, you'll want to measure the doorways it needs to clear in order to get it out of your home or where it's located. Figure out the ideal path for it to exit the building it's currently in and make note of any areas which may make things difficult, or any areas which may pose a potential problem.
