How We Move Pianos?

Site Inspection and Assessment

On a moving day, we conduct a comprehensive on-site evaluation. We observe and analyze the premises, identify potential obstacles, and plan the most efficient and safest pathway for the piano’s removal – whether it be via the front entrance or an alternative route around the property. To make it not only fast but also safe.

Detailed Piano Evaluation

We always check the piano and make sure it’s prepared for the move. A particular point of emphasis is the front cover of the piano, a component that can be prone to loosening. Our team ensures its secure fastening to avoid any damage during the transition.

Equipment Considerations

The choice of equipment is crucial to the successful transportation of the piano. Depending on the instrument’s weight and size, we select either a robust, heavy-duty trolley or a more compact and manoeuvrable model, particularly useful when navigating tight corners or confined spaces.

Team Coordination

The task of lifting the piano onto the trolley is one that calls for professional handling. In recognition of this, we always engage two experienced movers for this critical task, maintaining the safety of both the team and the instrument.

Stair Management

The presence of stairs necessitates additional consideration. In such cases, we use a special moving ramp to facilitate the safe descent or ascent of the piano. Working with heavy pianos, these are the most crucial points where experience is a must, as the simple tip of the piano might end up in damage, that’s why we always take it slow and with utmost care.

Vehicle Selection and Loading

For the purpose of transportation, we use a Luton box body van equipped with a tail lift. This vehicle is specifically designed to ensure the secure and manageable loading of bulky items like pianos. Never trust someone coming with a small van for safe piano removal, it’s too heavy an item to handle it safe loading in too normal size van.

In-Transit Safety

Once inside the vehicle, the piano is covered with protective moving blankets. It is then securely anchored to the van wall using robust ratchet straps. Of note, the straps are applied to the body of the piano, not the legs, as these are the most delicate parts of the instrument.

Keeping your piano safe and secure is at the heart of what we do. We pour a lot of care and professionalism into our work, always ensuring every detail is accounted for before the move. Our goal? To provide you with a piano moving service that’s nothing short of perfect. We’re here for you, and your piano, every step of the way!

How we handle Difficult Piano Moves?

Moving Piano upstairs

Relocating a piano up a flight of stairs is a specialized task that requires particular expertise, appropriate tools, and meticulous planning. Here, we detail our refined procedure for the safe and successful ascension of your piano.

1. Comprehensive Initial Evaluation

  • Stair Inspection: Our first step involves a thorough evaluation of the stairway. Our experts carefully assess factors such as width, incline, and any turns or corners that may present challenges during the move. We remove all painting or photographs from the walls as in most cases pianos barely fits through the stairs.

  • Honest Feedback: Our priority is the safe and secure moving of your piano. If, based on our assessment, we believe the task may put your piano at risk, we will communicate this to you honestly and discuss alternative solutions.

2. Right Team to move the piano

  • Professional Personnel: Safety is our top priority, which is why we use a team of four professional movers for all stair-related piano moves. This approach ensures even distribution and controlled handling of the piano’s weight.

3. We Use Specialized Equipment

  • Piano Straps: For most of the piano moves we use trolleys, but for moving upstairs our team uses specialized piano straps during the move. These straps facilitate better control and even weight distribution, crucial factors in the safe movement of your piano. 

4. Executing the Move

  • Precise Lifting: Equipped with piano straps, our team carefully and collectively lifts the piano. The involvement of four movers aids in maintaining balance and mitigating any risk of accidents.

  • Synchronized Movement: We ensure our team operates in harmony, coordinating their movements to safely navigate the piano up the stairs. This level of teamwork is particularly essential when dealing with corners or turns.

  • Secure Placement: Upon successful relocation upstairs, we oversee the safe and precise positioning of the piano in its new location.

Sideways Piano Maneuvering Through Narrow Corners

The movement of a piano through constricted spaces such as tight corners and narrow corridors requires a unique blend of expertise, precision, and the right equipment. 

1. Preparing the Piano for the Move

  • Protection Measures: To ensure the safety of both the piano and your premises, we utilise heavy-duty moving blankets. These serve a dual purpose: safeguarding the piano from potential damage and protecting your floors from possible scrapes.

2. Positioning the Piano Sideways

  • Lateral Placement: Maneuvering a piano onto its side is a challenging task due to the instrument’s considerable weight. However, our experienced movers have honed the skills necessary to accomplish this with the utmost care and precision.

3. Orientation Considerations

  • Facing the Keys or the Back: Once the piano is securely on its side, we determine the optimal orientation for moving it through the tight space – whether the piano should face keys or back. This decision is based on the specific layout and conditions of your premises.

4. Careful Navigation

  • Narrow Margin Movement: Maneuvering a piano through tight corners and corridors is a delicate operation that often involves mere millimetres of clearance from the walls. This task requires a great deal of experience and knowledge to ensure the piano’s safe and damage-free passage.
