Specialist Piano Removalist v. General Removalist

You are in the middle of planning a move. You have contacted several removal companies for quotes and are on the verge of making a decision. Although you have received assurances from the general removers that they will be able to move your piano, you still have niggling doubts that just won’t go away … 


A piano is no normal piece of furniture. Pianos are valuable in monetary terms and also emotional attachment, with many being family heirlooms. Whether you have a grand piano, baby grand piano, pianola or upright piano, moving such a valuable instrument needs to be given special consideration. Specialist piano removalists exist for a reason: they have the skills, experience and tools to guarantee the safety of your piano. Our focus is to give you a completely worry-free experience by moving your piano safely, securely and efficiently to its new home. 


If you consider the size, shape and weight of the average piano, you will soon realize that moving such a valuable, yet cumbersome object needs special treatment. No matter how competent a general removalist is, moving a piano can present a whole array problematic scenarios, which need an experienced eye, forethought and planning. Speicalist piano removalists know pianos:


  • We know how to disassemble and reassemble all types of piano (if required) to avoid damage to the expensive exterior and delicate inner workings. We know which pianos need to be partially disassembled, how to secure each component during transit and how to reassemble the piano at your destination. 
  • Moving a piano upstairs or downstairs can be very tricky and needs forward planning, the correct equipment and a skilled team of piano removalists. By hiring professionals you will have peace of mind that your piano will not get stuck, scraped or dented on a staircase.
  • Tight hallways or around awkward corners often pose to be major obstacles when moving a piano. Before we move your piano, we will develop a plan, which takes into consideration all potential problems such as difficult access points, stairs, tight corners and hallways. 


We have run the gauntlet of piano removals and we effectively plan for all potential problems so that your move goes without a hitch.
