Let’s take some time here to explain just how hard it is to move baby grand piano, and that should help encourage you to hire the professionals when it comes time to move your grand or baby grand piano. Here are 3 reasons why you should hire Safe & Sound Piano to be your professional baby grand piano movers.
1. Weight. Grand and baby grand pianos are extremely heavy. Even the smallest ones are going to weigh 500-600lbs. A Steinway 9ft concert grand weighs 990lbs! That’s almost as much as a Smart Car. Basically they are VERY HEAVY! Instead of trying to rope 4 friends into helping you lift the piano let the professionals do it for you. We know the technique for lifting heavy pianos, we know the right way to lift a piano that doesn’t damage the instrument, and we don’t mind doing it! Safe & Sound Piano movers will make sure you don’t have to left a heavy piano when you hire us as your professional baby grand piano movers.
2. Know-How. Have you ever seen a baby grand piano being moved? It’s very different from an upright piano. The legs have to be removed, the pedals are taken off, and the piano is placed on it’s side for the duration of the piano move. Since pianos have been around for about 3 centuries there is quite a bit of variety in how this process looks from piano to piano. Leg styles vary, pedal set-up changes, the method of placing the piano on it’s side can even vary from piano to piano. Safe & Sound Piano Movers have been doing this for a long time and we are familiar with literally every style and possibility out there. We will be able to dismantle and set up your grand or baby grand piano using the best method for your particular piano. Hire us to be your professional baby grand piano movers and avoid the risk of seriously damaging your piano.
3. Equipment. Upright pianos you can usually get away with minimal equipment. Baby grand pianos are a totally different story. You absolutely must have the right equipment when moving a baby grand piano. You need a piano board for the piano to rest on while on its side, you need moving pads, and you need a heavy duty piano dolly. The equipment is not cheap, but it is extremely important. Without the right equipment there is a high chance you will at least damage the piano cosmetically if not seriously damage it internally. As professional baby grand piano movers we will always have the proper equipment to make sure your grand or baby grand piano can be moved in the safest environment possible.
Professional baby grand piano movers are the only guarantee your piano will be safe and sound by the time the move is completed. Please do not try to move your baby grand piano yourself, and do not hire a generic moving company to move your grand or baby grand piano.
