If you own a piano, it is no surprise to you that a piano is heavy and can be very difficult to move. If you need to move it to a new home, or within your home
, you will need help to get it there safely and unscathed. Piano moving
is not a simple task and it requires planning.
When it is piano moving
time, the most important part is making sure the piano is properly packed
. The first thing necessary is to protect its surface so it is not scuffed or gouged. Refinishing a piano can be very expensive. We will start by wrapping your piano in a series of blankets.
The next most important consideration of a piano mover’s job is keeping the piano from experiencing any damaging bumps and scrapes as it is moved. A professional piano mover must have special tools for the job. The equipment necessary for successful piano moving includes a piano dolly and a piano skid board. A piano dolly is a heavy duty four-wheeled dolly with uni-directional casters that can support a piano’s weight. A piano skid board is a long board to which a piano is strapped so it can be moved safely and efficiently.Compass Moving & Storage
