Pianos are a beautiful centerpiece in any home. Aside from being a source of entertainment, they can also be prized possessions and family heirlooms that have a lot of value. It’s not just something you can easily leave behind if you’re planning to move homes. However, pianos are notoriously hard to move. They are cumbersome, oddly shaped, and extremely fragile. Whether your relocation is over a short or long distance, the act of moving a piano down a flight of stairs or through a door is a terrifying prospect. 

So how do you attempt to pull off this stunt without destroying such a high-value item? Here are a few tips that you need to keep in mind:

 

 

You’ll also want to get the help of some strong friends to help you load the piano into the truck. It is definitely going to be a workout so consider getting weightlifting straps to make the process a lot easier.

 

 

Don’t just take note of exact measurements either. Calculate the estimated dimension with a few inches of allowance too. Your piano might be wrapped by the time you start moving it out of your home and will inevitably be a bit thicker. Moreover, there has to be some space for the piano in your vehicle too.

Before you attempt to move the piano into its new destination, make sure you already know where it’s supposed to go. Even with the help of a moving team, each attempt to move it around may compromise your piano’s safety. Ideally, you should be able to set the piano down somewhere, make some slight adjustments, and keep it there.
