It is practically impossible to transport a piano on your own regardless of the transportation purposes. This dimensional object of uncomfortable shape has an impressive mass.
For this reason, the piano is usually transported by two professional movers or four if you need to carry the old German instruments.
Thus, if you have bought a musical instrument and need its home delivery or you relocate to a new place of residence, you need a piano and organ moving services. Also, it can be useful if you send your old damaged piano or organ for disposal.
How do we pack and transport pianos?
The transportation of large-sized musical instruments including the modern piano moving is carried out in several stages. Firstly, the instrument is partially disassembled. All elements that can be removed without harming the piano are transported separately, for example, pushbuttons are removed to facilitate the work.
In order not to damage the musical instrument during transportation, it is packed in special protective material and professional piano moving equipment is used. You as a customer need to take care of this in advance or get the detailed information in your moving manager.
