Moving from one place to another with all your belongings is a very hectic job for an individual. Therefore, many companies are providing service of movers; they can move household or office goods from one location to another as an occupation. Before packing the goods and making a move, you can ask your mover for the estimate. Although, movers are not required to give the estimates, they can provide you with it if requested.


Piano is a stringed keyboard musical instrument with which people are generally emotionally attached with (or at least people who possesses it). So piano moving requires an extra attention, care and consideration otherwise it may get damaged.In spite of its size and weight, a piano is actually a delicate instrument (because of the thousands of moving parts inside).

The mover should be thoroughly familiar with the make and model of the piano. Knowledge about the make and functioning of the piano can be of great help for moving the piano safely.

Since piano is a very delicate and vulnerable musical instrument, you should look for piano movers who have a long history or (at least fair amount of experience) of piano handling since piano moving is a specialty in itself.

The vulnerable and delicate outer parts, the exquisite finish and the complex functioning of the machinery might be at risk if the piano is not handled carefully. So, piano moving should be left to the professionals.

Don't hire just any mover for the job, hire a professional piano mover. It is often wise to contact a music store for recommendations. Most commercial and residential moving companies do not have employees who are trained in the required preparation and physical labour and you should be aware of them.

A good mover does not hide details and they don't make promises, which sound too good to be true. We also have to decide if we are doing the packaging by the movers or ourselves. If the movers do it, they charge extra for that. The hiring decision should only be made after one has checked the mover's credentials, no matter where they receive the referral. Regulatory agencies provide the most reliable information on licensing and complaint history of movers.
