Shipping a piano or an organ is no small task, but it doesn’t have to be as difficult as it may first appear. Dedicating some time to properly preparing a piano for moving helps ensure that you will save time and money. A piano is an investment and moving the instrument should be approached with care. Be sure to wrap your piano with an ample amount of padding and blankets to keep its delicate, moving parts out of harm’s way.
If a heavy item like a piano is not handled properly, it can lead to damage to the instrument and to your home. Even worse, improper handling of a piano can cause bodily injury. To protect your expensive instrument, your home and yourself, you should hire professional pianos movers. Many professional piano movers center their entire businesses around piano transport which means they likely have the experience and knowledge it takes to successfully complete this type of move. You may also want to consider hiring a white glove moving company. With thousands of service providers using the marketplace daily, uShip makes it easy to find a specialised and experienced transporter for your piano move.
