In today’s blog post I’m looking into the main reasons why it is beneficial – yes, even money-wise – to opt for a professional piano moving service next time.
1. Your piano matters
Pianos, as we know, are finely tuned instruments with delicate strings and hammers that can be ruined easily if transported improperly. Moving your piano yourself is not the best way to ensure it is done safely. Pianos are extremely heavy, they can weight from 350-1000 pounds. And their finishes can easily get scratched, dented and nicked.
2. Hidden costs
Profesionally trained movers have the right tools and equipments such as skids or hoist, the necessary skills and they are always insured. Think of the worth of your piano and the costs associated when it needs extensive repair or in the worst case scenario you need to purchase a new instrument.
The process of transporting your piano actually comes with a lot of responsibility for not only the safety of yourself and the movers helping you, but for the piano itself and its value. Maybe you hope you will save money but if your piano gets damaged, you will end up spending a fortune on the repair that could have been avoided.
3. No risk
Let the skilled professional piano movers do what they do best, so you can rest easy. If you are trying to relocate a piano without proper training you can end up with a serious back injury. Save your back and your piano as it is not worth the risk.
4. Save your home
Professional piano removals requires planning, a safe pair of trusted hands, plus an assurance that the task would be carried out safely, in a prompt and expeditious manner, without damage to the instrument or the properties it is being moved to and from. For those tight corners within a house, narrow hallways, or on the rare occasions when the piano is on the top floors, special tools such as forklifts and cranes may need to be employed, and the level of noise within the surrounding neighbourhoods would need to be minimised.
5. Piece of mind
Professionals have the experience to get the job done safely and efficiently, so when getting their assistance, you not only pay for the service but for the convenience, safety and piece of mind that comes with it.
