Edina & Farmignton Piano Moving Services
Moving a piano is not easy in any shape of the word, so realistically it’s a job that’s best left to the professionals. The movers at promoov.com are just the team to get it done safely and efficiently. In fact, we’d consider ourselves the premier option when it comes to MN piano movers.
We generally put three movers on the job when the piano in question happens to be a grand piano or anything larger in size. Stand up pianos can weigh anywhere from 300 to 800 lbs, baby grands come in somewhere between 400 and 550 lbs, and the grand pianos generally weigh between 500 and 1,200 lbs. For a bit of perspective the average car weighs about 4,000 pounds. If pianos are too large sometimes requires breaking them down which can be a very involved process.
It’s easy to imagine why you wouldn’t want anyone but the best attempting to move one of those pianos. Pianos are not only heavy but they’re also unwieldy in shape. Some pianos have very high backs while others have lengthy tops. While many pianos do come on wheels it’s actually not suggested that those are used in the moving process. They can actually deteriorate of a piano has been sitting for a while which could lead to them snapping when they’re used or they can easily gouge out wood floors when they start dragging. Those wheels are more of a decorative element, so getting the piano up off the floor is necessary from point A to point B in the moving process.
It’s necessary to use a dolly to make the move, and the piano must be centered properly based on its weight distribution. This does not always look perfectly balanced but our professionals know how to do it right. Besides just moving them across the room, getting pianos up and down stairs requires a specific process and the right equipment. Our insured professionals have that equipment as well as the know how to get the job done right without any hiccups along the way.
There are a few different reasons why it’s important to keep a piano safe during a move. For one thing letting one slip could cause some serious issues for people safety as well as the building it’s being moved within. A piano on the loose could certainly cause some damage!
Additionally, it’s important to keep a piano safe during a move to protect the integrity of the instrument. Getting bumped around too much is not healthy for those classic keys. Our movers know all the tricks out there that exist for keeping them as protected as possible, including wrapping them for packing them in the truck and removing the dolly for the ride so that the piano doesn’t accidentally slide around on the way. In fact, some pianos are so heavy that they need to be double or triple belted to the wall of the truck. We also know the perfect position to store them so that in the very rare off chance it did get loose it would have the least possible damage.
It’s always worth hiring a quality moving team when you’re moving something as precious as a piano. We know that many people have emotional attachments to their specific instruments in addition to a love of the art. We have just as much interest in getting your piano moved safely as you do, and we have tons of experience to back up our intentions of a job well done.
