Why Hire a Professional Piano Mover?

How Are Pianos Moved?
Unless the piano you are wanting to transport is small, light, or maneuverable, your piano will need to be placed on a piano board. Larger pianos are placed on this special skid using straps and moving blankets, ensuring the piano is stable and secure. This board helps to bring pianos down from stairs and uneven levels. Once on a flat surface, the piano and piano board will be placed on a dolly – a platform with wheels – and taken to the moving truck to be shipped.
How Much Does it Cost to Ship a Piano?
Piano moving costs depend on the distance and the special care for your piano. On average, it costs $5.56 per mile to ship a piano less than 100 miles, and costs $0.87 per mile to move a piano less than 1000 miles.
