For piano movers, the most important part of piano moving is packing the piano. This means wrapping the piano in a series of blankets so that the surface of the piano isn’t scuffed or gouged (refinishing a piano can be very expensive). Making sure the piano is moved in a way that avoids damaging bumps and scrapes is a piano mover’s second most important task. Any professional piano mover worth their salt will have special tools for the job: like a piano dolly (a heavy duty 4-wheeled dolly with uni-directional wheels that can support a piano’s weight) and a piano board (a long board that the piano is strapped to for the purpose of moving the piano).
An upright piano can weigh anywhere from 300 to 900 pounds (136.1 to 408.2 kilograms). Moving anything of this size requires several people to help with the move. It also requires that you take your time and be careful not to damage the piano, other furniture, walls, and floors. Bodily injury is also a potential problem if lifting is done improperly. Out top-notch professional movers will help you make this process easy and safe.
