Piano transportation

Pianos just as all of the musical instruments are considered to be delicate items to transport. Transporting them often is quite difficult, partially because almost all of them are quite vulnerable to breaking, but also because most of the music instruments are rather expensive. With grand pianos there is additional difficulty: they often are of considerable size as well as weight, which makes it more challenging to transport them safely.

While preparing your piano for transportation, make sure you close the lid with some Scotch tape and wrap the edges of the instrument with some bubble wrap. To ensure the transportation of the piano to the vehicle will be as smooth as possible, consider using a dolly.

It is not possible to ship a piano by yourself. A grand piano can weight up to 300 kg – you need about 6 other people to safely carry it to the shipping car. Remember that you have to be extra careful during transportation (even weak shocks may cause the instrument to go out of tune and sometimes even really damage it). If you want to be sure the cargo is safe, it is smart to find a transport provider to ship your instrument.

When looking for a hauler to transport a piano, it’s best to find a transport provider that specializes in transporting musical instruments, as not every transport provider with enough car booth space to fit a piano can be trusted with shipping musical instruments. The instrument must be protected against tilting during sudden turns, but also against any shocks that may happen during transportation. Constant vibrations happening for a long period of time can cause real damage to the instrument.

There is one more advantage of finding a hauler to transport your piano. Professional transport providers often possess a product liability insurance, which means that if any damage happens to your precious cargo, you will be entitled to compensation.
