On this page, we endeavoured to provide helpful information.
We will treasure your piano all the way through the move, though to be able to do this we need some details from you about your piano and properties that will be involved with your piano move.
The piano can differ greatly from one piano manufacturer to another in weight and ago of piano, therefore It’s importation to give us details about your piano as the upright and grand piano comes in various sizes and types. Is your piano a player-piano also known as Pianola or a modern-auto-play-piano. If it is a very old upright piano it could be an upright-grand piano from the 1800s Like The Steinway Victorian piano! Which is near to half a ton in weight?
Property also differ greatly too, from one to another, if the piano is a heavy piano and there are more than two steps involved than the piano could take more time and effort to move, Therefore to be able to give you the fairest quote possible please read our “Information we need from you” Below.

Piano moving day.
We are always looking at ways to keep your cost down and one way is to add as many pianos as possible together in a day. Therefore being able to offer you a better cost than doing a one-off collection and delivery for you.
Adding your piano to other piano moves within the same day really save you money if you need a piano moving from one county to another and we are collection and delivery in the same areas!.
If you have more then one piano to be moved, or you have a friend who also needs a piano moving and you can move them together? We should be able to give you both a better cost for your piano move.
Information on what we do for you
We have been moving pianos for over 30+ years.
All pianos moved on our pianos-moving-trucks-wheels and are covered with our specially strongwrap covers so your piano doesn’t get marked and if it’s raining the piano stays dry – even if we don’t! The pianos-moving-trucks-wheels we use cannot normally be hired by any hire centre that I know of! Most dolly-trucks-wheels you can hire are not comparable to what we use, some dolly-trucks-wheels you may be able to hire maybe find if moving a piano within a property but may not if moving from one property to another?.
All floorings that your piano and us too, have to crossover are protected, not forgetting walls and any other surfaces while moving your piano).
All Grand Pianos are moved with a shoe of the correct size.
Our vans carry various blocks and boards, we also have a wooded forum to get over a block of five steps or more but we only put them on the van when needed, with the wooded forum we can get your piano over number of steps or any other obstacles with using our piano-moving-truck-wheels and often only by using two piano mover. We don’t manhandle any piano if we can help it, it’s better for us and your piano if we can move your piano on our piano-moving-truck-wheels.
If you are replacing your older piano with a newer piano and a friend or relative are having your old piano or even if you are selling the piano, If you use us to move both piano’s together on the same day, within the same areas then we should be able to offer you a discount.
If your piano needs storage, you only pay for the week’s you require. The piano is stored in a dedicated area of the storage building where they are left undisturbed and totally secure. Your piano is never stored in a container with us. Containers are not the best way to store a piano, we have pick-up customers pianos from other storage companies whom the customer has stored with to find damage done to pianos because the piano was stored in a container and due to the weight and movement of the piano within the container damage has happened. Therefore containers are not the way to store a piano.
