Piano transportation

Pianos just as all of the musical instruments are considered to be delicate cargo. Transporting them sometimes is rather difficult, partially because most of them are quite vulnerable to breaking, but also because most of the music instruments are rather expensive. With pianos there is additional obstacle: they usually are of massive size as well as weight, which makes them even harder to transport safely.

While preparing your piano for transportation, remember to secure the lid with some Scotch tape as well as wrap the edges of the instrument with a few layers of Styrofoam. To make the transportation between the apartment and the transporting vehicle easier, consider using a dolly.

It is not possible to transport a piano by yourself. A grand piano can weight up to 661 lbs – you need about six people to carry it to the shipping vehicle. Make sure you are being extra cautious during transportation (even minor bumps 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 best to hire a hauler to ship your piano.

When hiring a hauler to transport a piano, it is best to find a transport provider that specializes in transporting musical instruments, as not every hauler with enough space in his car to fit a piano should be trusted with shipping musical instruments. The instrument must be protected against tilting in case of sudden turns and also against any shocks that may happen during transportation. Continual tremors happening for a long period of time can cause permanent damage to the instrument.

What’s more, there is an additional benefit in hiring a transport provider to transport your piano. Professional haulers usually possess a product liability insurance, which means that if any damage happens to your valuable load, you will be entitled to compensation.
