How to move a piano

Before moving a piano, it’s important to have knowledge and experience in moving the particular model or type you’re dealing with.

Models range in weight and size from relatively small uprights starting at 150kg to much larger and heavier grand pianos. The job of moving even a small piano is one for a team of people and shouldn’t be undertaken lightly.

The next thing is to determine the path with the easiest access. The plan should be communicated to everyone involved in the move so that everyone’s on the same page.

We cover every piano we move, in custom made blankets. This prevents scuffing or chipping to the the piano and the walls and doors of your home or premises.

The final step is to move the piano safely to the truck, ready to be lifted up by our hydraulic tail lift and securely strapped in.

How to move a pool table

The proper way to move a pool table is to take it apart.

Some people try to move the full piece through doorways and upstairs without disassembling it, but that can be dangerous for you and the pool table.

Everything that you remove needs to be labelled and catalogued so that putting it back together is a simple process.

Next, the slate needs to come off. If it is all in one piece, the slate could weigh upwards of 400kgs, which is why it’s best left to the professionals.

Once detached everything needs to be wrapped in moving blankets and loaded onto the truck. Once moved we put it back together again and make sure it is level.
