The upright comes in various weights, sizes, and styles which mean that some will need additional careful planning to ensure stress-free and seamless piano move.
With the larger sizes, it becomes more crucial where there’s a narrow hallway where upright piano needs upending due to a tight-turned, and this is where the right specialist knowledge and experience comes into play as to where to place the keyboard in the tight space!.

We move most makes grand’s up to 7ft (230cm), and we always use a moving-shoe to transport a grand piano what every the grand piano size is.
Digital upright and grand pianos
The digital upright piano may be lighter and smaller than some acoustic piano but still need as much care as an acoustic piano does when moving, in fact, some needs addition care and is why we designed our moving-board to go between our piano-trucks-wheels and digital piano when transporting those pianos.
Digital grand piano like the digital upright need the same amount of care and is why we have taken one of our small acoustic grand moving-shoe and redesigned to fit the digital grand, see photo.
We base each customer quotation on the piano preparation and moving times that we believe we will spend at each location as well as mileage and travelling time which is worked out by the details given by the customer.
There are at times for one reason or another when a customer piano takes less time to move then we have quoted to move the piano? When this happens, we do our very best to reduce the final quoted cost to you.
A large number of our customers pay us by bank transfer.
Payment doesn’t have to be paid to us until we have delivered your piano to you and this also gives us a chance to reduce the final cost to you if your piano has taken less time to move. No other piano mover look after you like we do.
