Do you own a grand piano or own it as an heirloom? Well, no matter how you got it, but if you are planning to relocate yourself with your piano then it is worrisome. You would want to transport it safely and in a budget-friendly way. A regular mover and packer company is not enough to transport your piano, you need a mover who specializes in carrying heavy objects like a piano. But a high-quality piano mover comes expensive.

The piano is both heavy as well as an expensive object, it has a sentimental aspect attached to it too. Hence for the relocation of an object as heavy and bulky as a piano, you need to seek the help of a professional piano moving company. In order to find the right piano mover, pay attention to the following traits.


You want someone who has the right expertise. Right expertise often comes with experience, which means that the company should have operated for several years. They will know which areas and things to watch out for while moving and packaging. They are so used to handling heavy objects like a piano that you get proper assistance right from start to finish with the best results. Also, asking for reference will give you a fair idea about the company’s past work experiences.


It is important to note the various services that the company provides. You should think about what services your moving company offers. Do they have moving experience in handling pianos and antiques? Do they provide packaging services and does the final estimate include it or not? Do they offer your boxes to set aside things during your relocation? Do they perform residential relocation or international moves? Your research must include all such questions. This will help you cut cost for relocating your piano.



Relocating a piano needs a certain amount of training. Visit the company and look if they have the right equipment and able workers to lift the piano. Looks can sometimes be deceiving, never judge a book by its cover. A piano mover has to go through a lot of training so that they don’t damage the piano itself or hurt you or other helpers. The packaging has to be done in a certain way, so it is important you check and verify all this beforehand. One advice, if you really liked the way they helped you through your packing and moving journey then do tip them generously.


If you have read about moving and relocating your things from one place to another, then you should know the importance of storage. It is very much possible that you may not move to your new house or city the very same day as you pack your piano and other things. Hence if your moving company has a good inventory then it will save your piano from getting damaged. For that reason, when thinking about hiring piano movers, always make sure that they offer storage solutions, as well. It’s much easier to rent a unit from the same company that’s helping you relocate than to go about searching for a new one.

Please do take your time to find the right high-quality piano movers. Don’t rush and take a bad decision. If a company has all the above traits then you must go for it. Never try to shift or relocate by yourself as it will do you more bad than good, it might strain or break your back where you will further land up with a lot of financial loss.
