Placed advert on U-Ship and received several quotes at varied prices. The bidding war commenced and was great to watch as prices fell. I ended up choosing the most expensive quote which might sound strange. However, they were the only professional piano mover and were competitive in price. I opted for that service over cheap price due to item being moved. The guys arrived at the collection point as agreed, striped down the piano, fully blanket wrapped and delivered to me. One here the guys were happy to help me move a piece of furniture as I had just fractured my pelvis. They put the piano back together and even tinkled the ivory's to ensure it worked ok. Very satisfied with the service. If I had one criticism it would be that I asked them to ring me before they arrived just to ensure I got things ready in time but I didn't get the call. However it didn't really matter as I was here in any event. Overall, very satisfied with the service.
