Hiring Professional Long Island Piano Movers -
Why should you rely on our Long Island piano movers? Unlike moving a standard piece of furniture or appliance, pianos are priceless instruments that are incredibly delicate and breakable. They are exceptionally vulnerable to damage, which in the worst case scenario, can result in an irreparable loss.
Attempting a DIY piano move is exceedingly risky — for both you and your instrument. While most people think about the risk of damage to the piano itself, few consider the possible injuries that can accompany this kind of move. A standard piano weighs an average of 750 pounds. Some designs are as heavy as 1,400 pounds! As such, trying to move such a heavy and expensive object with no prior training is a recipe for disaster.
What happens in the event that a piano is damaged during a DIY move? If the piece is uninsured, you will be responsible for footing the full repair bill. This can cost anywhere between $100s of dollars (in the best cases) to $1,000s of dollars in repairs. In some instances, the damage can be so severe that a skilled piano repair professional is unable to restore the piece to its prior condition.
Instead of attempting to save a few dollars by taking the DIY route, eliminate the risk altogether by hiring the best piano movers in Long Island. This affordable a-la-carte moving service will save you stress, muscle aches and strains, the possibility of serious injury, and the risk of ruining your one-of-a-kind instrument.
Long Island Piano Movers Require Specialized Equipment & Training
Another factor that few people consider is that pianos require special tools and equipment to move properly. Without a specific set of items, pianos cannot be moved safely — or without risk of damage. Anytime you hire a piano moving company, they should always bring the following tools and equipment to complete the job:
- Tools and equipment
- ◦ Piano dolly
- • Upright
- • Baby Grand and Grand
- ◦ Tie down straps
- ◦ Moving blankets
- ◦ Shrinkwraps
- ◦ Furniture dolly - 4 wheeler with carpet on top
- ◦ Either a liftgate or a ramp depending on the size/style
- ◦ Tie downs in the truck to secure the piano for the ride
Using specialized equipment also requires special training and experience to operate properly. That’s why our entire team is trained with the latest skills and industry-leading techniques to ensure that your piano completes its journey in the same condition you left it in. Instead of having general moving skills, our staff knows specialized techniques that help protect our clients’ most valuable pieces.
