Using a professional piano mover will ensure safety and care when moving. Pianos are instruments and not pieces of furniture anyone can move. We have been out to many houses in the past where they have tried moving themselves or even with friends and they have either damaged there floors, themselves or even the piano. Upright and Grand Pianos are very heavy items, where the small upright pianos can weigh 400 pounds and larger pianos over 1000 pounds. Please note these items can be extremely difficult to move without correct equipment and adequate knowledge. People have even been killed, if the piano has broken castors or wobbly or spilt grand piano legs, this can be a leading cause for a piano to fall over and hurt someone. If it is knocked or moving incorrectly can cause fatal injuries to anyone. We use certain techniques to manoeuvre the pianos around your homes. Many of our clients have said how easy we make it look. A1 Piano’s will always have special equipment that has been custom made to our needs to tackle many situations around homes, schools, events etc. We have different types of piano moving wheels to tackle many bad terrains, soft wood floors and even hills. Piano moves with the correct equipment has made even the most difficult jobs easier than ever. If you are thinking of using a normal household removal company to move your piano, you will be taking a risk. The value of your piano could be as high as £200,000, depending on the age, make, model and condition of the piano. Trying to make use of any type of mover who may not have experience in moving pianos might seem like the cheaper option, but in most cases there will be some type of problem and you will need to hire a professional after all.
