Most pianos are bulky and delicate meaning that unprofessional moving might result to injury or damaging of the piano. Since most of these pianos are priced possessions that owners hold close to the heart, it is important that the services of experts be sort if you intent to move a piano and reach at its destination with it sound and sound.
Piano weight is mostly attributed to the cast iron harp that supports the strings. A small upright piano will weigh between 300 to 400lbs while grand pianos and other bigger pieces range from 500 to 1200lbs. this is quite some weight to tag along with. Professional piano moving experts have the exact skill and tools to ensure that all this weight is carried with insurance in case of any accidents. This calls for the need to choose the best professionals ever.
Professionals come with insurance cover
I believe that no matter how much expertise one can master or the much hardware one has at their disposal, one can never back up the price to pay in case of accidents. Professional piano movers have insurance cover meaning that in case anything goes wrong. This will come with an extra bill to the move. In my opinion, it is a worthy gamble especially if the deal is good enough to cover most for the replacement price in case the piano is spoiled in the process.
In case disassembling is needed, they will do it in the best way possible
In some cases of piano moving, it is paramount that some parts of the piano be disassembled to allow it squeeze into tight spots. A common procedure to this is termed to in the professional lingo as “keyboarding.” Whatever decision they come to, it is important to understand that their decision comes from years of experience and is actually the best for your piano.
In my opinion, moving a piano is only successful if and only if the piano gets from point A to point B and still stands upright to deliver the same quality it was in before the whole move. Regardless of whether it was assembled or disassembled, replaced or repaired, it is wise to let the avenues open by letting experts handle the moving on your behalf.
The manpower and tools needed are not easy to come by
With all the weight to tag along with, there is the need to have several strong people to do the task. This not only means going to the gym and getting the strongest men in there, it means getting someone strong in mind and body. I believe that this strength comes from experience and groomed preparation for the piano moving task.
In addition to having the strength to move the piano, piano moving demands that the right tools be used if the look and tuning of the piano is to be retained. Examples include heavy-duty dollies to cushion the piano and preserve its tuning, a piano board to help hoist the piano bulk down stairs among other adaptable tools that work to maintain the integrity of the piano’s innards or maintain its outward look and beauty.
It is therefore clear to see that the whole task of moving a piano, though achievable by a handful of strong friends with no history of backaches is a risk that should be left to the professional piano movers. This I believe gives us the freedom to have the task done effectively and with the comfort of reimbursement in case of accidents. There however are cases in which you have no option but to handle the piano by yourself. For long distance moves, professionals will deliver the piano to the nearest piano center. I however believe that paying that extra amount to have it delivered to your house is a worth gamble.
