How To Prepare A Piano for A Move - Quick Rundown

Piano moving is a delicate process, and there are a few things you’ll need to do to prepare your piano for the move. Here’s a quick rundown of what you need to do:

  1. Disassemble the piano. This includes removing the legs, pedals, and any other removable parts.

  2. Wrap the piano in blankets or padding. This will help protect it during transport.

  3. Secure the piano onto a dolly or moving dolly with straps or ropes. This will prevent it from tipping over during the move.

  4. Transport the piano on its side or upright, depending on its size and weight. For example, upright pianos should be moved upright, while grand pianos should be moved on their side.

  5. Reassemble the piano once it arrives at its new location. This includes putting the legs, pedals, and other parts back on.

With these steps, you’ll be able to move your piano from one location to another safely. Be sure to hire professional movers to help with the process, as they’ll have the experience and equipment necessary to move a piano properly.
