When it comes to moving things, you cannot get much more awkward than a piano. Transporting an organ yourself is not a job to be taken lightly considering an upright piano can easily weigh more than two people (some upwards of 200kg!).

Given their significant bulk pianos are also pretty delicate, they have lots of moving parts and strings that can all easily be damaged if mishandled. Pianos are also often antiques or heirlooms, further increasing their value.

Preparing a Piano for Transport

If you’re going to move the piano yourself there are a number of precautions to be taken:- Lock the keyboard cover to make sure it doesn’t rattle around

- Get as many hands to help as possible, this isn’t a two person job

- Make sure there’s a clear path to the exit, clear of clutter

- You’ll need some sort of dolly or trolley to roll the piano (do not roll it on its casters!)

- Wrap and tie the piano in blankets to avoid damaging walls or the piano itself

- Tilting and pivoting the piano will always be easier than lifting it (use cardboard or carpet to buffer when doing this)

Piano moves are extremely difficult and it’s for this reason that there are specialist piano removal companies to tackle the task – a task that requires special tools and skills as well as a great deal of patience and precision to pull off. So if you wish to forgo the considerable effort yourself, let the professionals do the heavy work for you.
