Piano Moving Made Easy

Most people would rather be moved by the music of a piano than have to move a piano itself. Anyone who has been faced with this undertaking already knows that it can be a nightmare. For the uninitiated, you might think that it's not really that big of a deal. However, pianos require some attention prior to moving to ensure they aren’t damaged in transit. At Caliber Moving Services, we specialize in piano moves, making the process hassle-free so you don't have to spend your afternoon worrying.

The Challenge with Moving Pianos

There are several reasons why you should avoid moving a piano without professional help. Here are a few to help you make the right decision:

  • Pianos are heavy: Pianos weigh upwards of a thousand pounds, making them one of the heaviest pieces of furniture to move. They require special handling and extra securing during transportation.
  • Pianos are awkward: Due to their shape and size, pianos have a strange center of gravity, making them challenging to move without damaging walls, floors, or the piano itself. Our professional movers have the expertise to navigate any obstacles, from ground level music rooms to upstairs or basement locations.
  • Pianos are delicate: Moving or shifting a piano improperly can damage its delicate inner workings, and even minor bumps can cause expensive damage to its exterior. Professional movers ensure your piano remains in pristine condition.
  • Pianos are precision instruments: Moving a piano can affect its tuning and sound quality. Even relocating it to another room might require re-tuning. Our experienced team takes care of every detail to preserve the piano's musical integrity.
  • Avoid injuries: Moving a piano can lead to accidents, especially when dealing with stairs, corners, and hallways. Without the proper equipment and training, you risk hurting yourself.
  • Many moving parts: A piano has intricate moving parts that need to be immobilized correctly during the move to prevent damage. Professional movers know how to handle pianos safely.

Piano Donations

Pianos are instruments that can last through generations if cared for properly. If you find yourself with a piano you no longer need, consider donating it to give it a second life in a new home. Caliber Moving Services partners with many local organizations that can benefit from your piano:

  • Check with local music programs or schools: Pianos can inspire and introduce aspiring musicians and songwriters to the world of music.
