If you are a piano owner, and you’re thinking about moving into a new house, or you are considering moving your piano from one place in your home to another, you may need the assistance of professional piano movers in Manhattan. Here at Piano Land, we’ve been helping people with just about all piano related needs for years, and we specialize in moving pianos. With that in mind, we’ve put together this list of things you should do or consider before our piano movers arrive (and some that you should do before you even give us a call!).

Things to do Before Scheduling Piano Movers in Manhattan

piano-movers-3While you are always encouraged to call us at 1-866-PIANO-90 if you have any questions, going over the following items may help you save some time if you think about them before scheduling your moving appointment:

  • When are You Moving – If you know the date, or even the approximate date, you are planning on moving, let us know. This will help with scheduling and planning your move. Seasonal considerations often need to be considered, so the more specific you are with the date of the move, the better.
  • Where will the Piano Go – Whether you’re moving the piano into a new home, or just a new area in your existing home, let us know where in the house it will be going. If it is going above the ground floor, we may need to bring special equipment, and schedule a little longer to ensure everything is done right.
  • Do you want the Piano Tuned – We highly recommend tuning your piano after it is moved. Let us know if this is a service you’d like to take advantage of.
  • The Type of Piano Being Moved – Let us know the type of piano you need moved. If you know the manufacturer and model, that is ideal. If not, knowing whether it is a Grand, a Baby Grand, or any other type will be very helpful.

Things to do Before Our Piano Movers Arrive

As the day of the move approaches, you’ll want to have a few things ready to help save you time, and ensure everything goes smoothly. Of course, if any of these things can’t be done, we can assist when we arrive as well:

  • Tell Your Other Movers we Are Coming – If you’ve got other movers to help you with your other belongings, make sure to let them know that you have us coming for the piano. This way they will leave it alone so we can handle it. Even consider putting a note on the piano to ensure mistakes aren’t made.
  • Clear a Path – If the piano is being moved before other items, try to have the area between the piano and the exit clear of boxes, furniture and other items. If you need help with this, just let us know and we will be glad to assist.
  • Remove any Personal Items – Many people like to place music books, sheets of music, pictures or other items on their piano. Try to have these items removed before we arrive to ensure they don’t get misplaced.
