Grand Piano 682x500 - How Do I move my Piano?


With this Piano, one of the identifying factors is the high gloss white finish to the entire piano. To ensure that no harm or damage came to this Piano, before our team moved the Piano, the entire casing was wrapped in a layer of pallet wrap, two layers of bubble wrap and a further layer of pallet wrap to provide the best possible protection.

All of the External fixings were individually removed and bubble wrapped before loading including the feet.

To ensure the side of the piano is protected during transit, the Piano is lowered onto a Piano Skid, this acts a supportive shoe to protect the Piano and assist our team in providing a stable to base to lift and control it from. To prevent injury the Piano is also wheeled in and out of the property by a set of rugged purpose design Piano wheel, designed to safely carry and control the weight of the Piano.
