  • Piano Damage – Moving a piano is nothing like moving a couch or a TV. Pianos are extremely heavy – sometimes in excess of several hundred pounds in weight – and must be handled with a great deal of care and respect. The weight, and the somewhat awkward distribution of this weight, creates an abundance of potential for movers to drop your piano, or bump heavily against other surfaces which can cause damage to the soundboard. Without the help of professional piano movers, you are running the risk of damaging the beauty and structural components of your instrument permanently.
  • Personal Injury – Once again, the sheer size of each instrument makes piano moving extremely risky. By not enlisting the help of professional piano movers, you may find yourself on the receiving end of a worker’s compensation claim due to injuries caused during the move. Because a piano is not a typical piece of furniture, it may not be covered by the company’s insurance. There is also the potential for injury to yourself in the piano moving process. Should you decide to take this burden upon yourself, you may find that you get much more than what you bargained for. Trying to save money by moving your piano on your own is simply not worth the chance for severely hurting yourself, resulting in pain and huge medical bills.
