Take a moment to read them through to see if they answer any of your questions. If you still need help, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-866-PIANO-90.
Why Should I Hire a Special Mover Just for My Piano?
This is easily the most common question. People wonder why they should pay us to move their piano, when they are already hiring general movers, or renting a moving truck and having friends help them move. Pianos, however, aren’t like other items in your home. Even a small mistake can cause significant damage to the piano, which can cost a lot to fix, or may even be irreparable. Things that most people assume will be fine, can cause problems, such as tilting the piano incorrectly, securing the piano improperly, covering the piano with the wrong items, and many others. Hiring piano movers in Queens is important because we have the equipment and experience needed to ensure your piano arrives safely so book your piano moving now!
How Much will it Cost to Move My Piano
Each piano move is unique, and will have a custom price associated with it. Depending on where you’re moving the piano from (is it on the ground floor, or an upper level, etc), where you’re moving it too, and what type of piano it is, we can give you a custom quote that is often far cheaper than most people expect. Call us at 1-866-PIANO-90 to get a quote today.
What Equipment Do You Use?
We have a number of different types of moving equipment to help keep your piano safe. Our piano moving cart allows us to provide direct support of the piano legs, without causing unnecessary stress. When necessary, we can use lifting straps and tools to hoist the piano down from upper levels. This equipment is used for pianos in order to distribute the load properly. We also have a custom moving truck that allows us to properly secure pianos while we’re on the road so they don’t get scratched or damaged.
Is there Anything Special I Need to Do at My Current Home, or the Destination?
The most important things you can do to prepare for the move is to make sure all personal items are taken off the piano. In addition, knowing where the piano will be placed in your new home is important, so we can plan the best way to get it into the home. Finally, having any items that might be in the way of our path moved is very helpful. If needed, however, we can take care of that as well. If you’re planning on having us tune your piano when it is in its new location, make sure to let us know when scheduling your move as well, so we can make sure to have all the equipment we need to get your piano sounding perfect.
