Don’t Wait Until the Last Minute to Move a Piano

When moving a piano you want to get the piano in your moving truck first. Leaning it against the back wall of the moving truck is the safest place for both your piano and your other items. Putting your piano towards the back of the moving truck means it can move and crush your items. This can damage the piano or worse, fall out when you open those truck doors.


Do Not Move a Piano by Yourself

Moving a piano yourself is highly not recommended. Not only could you injure yourself, but tipping the piano can harm the interior setup of the instrument and warp the frame. We highly urge you to look into hiring some help to move a piano, rather than trying to handle it on your own.  Make sure you use a piano board, a small indoor bodyboard that will ensure your piano gets down the stairs with minimum bumps and shifts.


Don’t Move a Piano Without Covering It

Make sure you wrap up your piano safely. Though it is heavy, it’s a delicate instrument that can easily get scratched, legs can get broken, or keys can get damaged. Avoid a moving fail and a lot of scratches by simply covering and wrapping the piano in plastic or quilt padding.


Do Not Lift and Carry When Moving a Piano Upstairs

A piano board or ramp is important. A piano is too heavy and too fragile to survive too much lifting and transporting. Make sure you use a ramp or piano board whenever possible to avoid damaging the piano or causing injury to your friends and family.
