Piano Movers You Can Trust

Pianos we have experience moving

Moving pianos is an artform; like playing a piano, moving one safely requires a lot of practice and attention to detail. This is why moving your piano can be one of the most complicated parts of your move.  Let ERO Moving LLC take that stress off of your shoulders.  While you may be considering moving your piano on your own, it is important to think about all the reasons hiring movers will be worth it.  If your piano is a family heirloom or simply one of the most treasured pieces of furniture you own, you want to make sure it is properly taken care of during your move.

Since a piano typically weights between 400-800 pounds – with grands weighing up to 1,200 – it becomes pretty clear as to why you would want to hire professionals like ERO Moving LLC to move it for you.  When you are moving extremely heavy items it can be dangerous, not only the people doing the moving, but for your prized possession as well. Pianos cost a lot of money, so spending a little extra to ensure that it is moved safely is a must.

When you have decided to use ERO Moving LLC to move your piano, you will need to tell us what type of piano you have so we can give you the best estimate on the market. We will need to know if you have a spinet, upright, baby grand, or a grand.  The size will let us know how many men it will take to move your piano.  We also need to know if the piano will need to go up/down stairs since this will change the amount of manpower required. Stop wasting time stressing about how you are going to move your piano and reach out to ERO Moving LLC today to get your free estimate!

Moving a Piano Safely

Heavy Duty Moving Blankets: These are a must when preparing to move large items. They are thick, durable blankets used to protect the wood from nicks or scratches during the move. Blankets also ensure your new walls and molding will not get scratched when going around corners.

Furniture Dolly and Piano Board: While a hand truck works well most household items, you will need a heavy duty furniture dolly that can support the weight of a piano.  You will also need a piano moving board. This is a secure base which is outfitted with proper divots to secure straps around your piano during the move.

Furniture Straps: As mentioned, straps are an extremely important part of moving a piano.  When using straps, be sure to place blankets between the piano and straps to avoid any damages from the straps. The piano should be double strapped to the side of the truck to guarantee it will not move during transportation.

Preparing for Transportation

One of the best things you can do to prepare for ERO Moving LLC to move your piano is to prep your space. Make notes of any doorways, sharp corners, or narrow hallways. Check out any space that may be likely to cause difficulty and compare them with your piano measurements. If you have a grand or baby grand our movers know to remove the legs to make for an easier move.  Also, make sure any rugs are picked up to provide a smooth trip out the door with your piano.

ERO Moving LLC understands pianos are expensive and fragile, but also tend to have family lineage tied to them. That is why our goal throughout your entire moving experience is to make sure to keep your piano protected.  Let our professionally trained moving team safely handle the moving of your priceless piano!

How to Move a Piano The Right Way

Moving a piano takes skill, experience and the right tools. It can be a difficult task to get right if not done in the proper way. Here are some tips on how to move a piano the right way:
Assess The Situation
Before tackling the actual move, assess the area – measure doorways and any tight spaces that need to navigate around. This will help determine how many people are needed for the job and what supplies may be required.
Gather The Tools & Supplies Needed
Most importantly, having the appropriate equipment is key for a successful move. Look into renting or purchasing dollies, piano boards and other items needed to make sure transport is safe and secure.
Have Enough Staff On Hand
Having at least four experienced movers on site is recommended when moving heavy items like pianos. Additional people may also be needed depending on where it needs to go and what obstacles must be navigated around.
Following these guidelines should help ensure that a piano is moved safely and correctly!
