Question:
8/9/2014
What is the weight and dimensions of this piano? Do you have a specific budget in mind? Would you have an issue with this being transported in a pick up? Thank you and I look forward to working with you.Report a Violation
Response: It is 6 ft long, 4.5 ft wide. Do not know exact weight but looking online, other similar ones are listed around 500lbs. I do not need it by any specific date, and if putting it on a combined load makes it more cost effective- I am open to the idea8/9/2014Report a Violation
Response: Will there be assistance loading? If so, that will help reduce the cost of additional labor. Also, is there any stairs at either location? Do you have a specific budget as well?8/9/2014Report a Violation
Response: No stairs at either location. I have always had it moved as part of full household move, so I honestly have very little idea if what fair market price is for a service like this. I would like to be quoted price with the labor included. I cannot guarantee assistance on either end8/9/2014Report a Violation
Response: I have submitted my bid. Please let me know if this will work for you. Please notice I will be in TX from August 13/14. Thank you and I look forward to working with you.8/9/2014Report a Violation
Response: Do you have experience moving a grand piano like this before in your vehicle? I ask that because your profile looks like you would be using a pickup truck. I am not certain for the piano to be adequately protected/packed it would fit in a pickup.8/9/2014Report a Violation
Response: I have moved uprights and baby grands in this truck. I just recently delivered a professional sized pool table over 400 miles with this truck. I have been moving things for many years, but I am pretty new to the uShip site. If you are not comfortable with this, I completely understand.8/9/2014Report a Violation

If you would give me the measurements for this piano I could place a bid for transport & I will do so using a covered cargo trailer. Holly. TimeWiseReport a Violation
Response: It is 6 ft long, 4.5 ft wide. I would estimate around 500 lbs. do you have experience moving pianos before?8/9/2014Report a Violation
Response: I've moved a few upright pianos and realized that this was a grand so I'd better leave this to someone with more experience in this area. Holly. TimeWise8/9/2014Report a Violation
Response: Thank you for your interest, but yes it is a parlor sized grand.8/9/2014Report a Violation

What is your target price? I would like to earn your business... Thanks.. We are #1 in pianos and do alot of baby grand, medium grand, uprights and parlor grand pianos.. are there any stairs?Report a Violation
Response: No stairs on either end. I honestly have no idea what the going rate would be for a move like this- I assumed there would be a charge per mile of distance?8/18/2014Report a Violation
Response: Not really on these, its more of the take down and setting back up. It takes a bit. I have the piano board and piano dolly to safely do this job. I also have another guy with me and lots of pads and straps. I can do 650.00 Insured, and that includes everything. Let me know thanks8/18/2014Report a Violation
