Question:
5/6/2014
Moving a grand piano takes a lot of special care. Its not about the distance, its about handling it so it doesnt get damaged Good luck Report a Violation
Response: I am very aware of that. I have been moving pianos over 20 years myself. $1800 for a 128 mile move is ludicrous. Piano is going to be restored anyway, so as long as it isn't dropped, it'll be fine. My target is $425 for the move. The piano is being picked up from a piano dealer, so there will most likely be lots of experienced piano help there. The dropoff is a dock height warehouse where you will simply set the piano up on 3 legs, and you don't even have to put the pedal lyre on. Or, you can leave it on a skidboard if you have one to spare. I also will have one from the Philadelphia area going to the same MA address next week. My target is $425 for the move.

What is your target price? I would like to earn your business... Thanks Report a Violation
Response: $425. It's a pretty easy move. Picking up from a dealer. (probably lots of experienced help there) and delivering to a dock height warehouse. Not worried about a minor scratch or two. Just don't drop it. It'll be getting a restoration anyway. 128 miles. 5/6/2014Report a Violation

You ready to book? Report a Violation
Response: Not yet. I gotta get a better price. It's only a 128 mile move 5/7/2014Report a Violation
Response: I understand, I went low, this is the going price to move these pianos... I have the special board and all.... How are the toll roads in the area? 5/7/2014Report a Violation
Response: I'm not certain. I don't believe you'd have to cross the GW bridge, which is like $36 bucks for a box van the last time I was in NYC. MapQuest can probably tell you more.... (I'm from GA. We have better roads and NO tolls lol!!!) 5/7/2014Report a Violation
