Piano transportation

Pianos just as all of the musical instruments are thought of as fragile cargo. Transporting them sometimes is quite difficult, not only because most of them are prone to damages, but also because most of the instruments are rather expensive. With grand pianos there is additional difficulty: they usually are of considerable size and weight, which makes it more challenging to transport them safely.

Before getting the piano to the transporting vehicle, make sure you secure the lid with some duct tape and wrap the edges of the instrument with a few layers of Styrofoam. To ensure the transportation of the piano to the vehicle will be as smooth as possible, consider using a dolly.

It is impossible to ship a piano without any help. A grand piano often weights up to 661 lbs – you need about six other people to get it to the shipping vehicle. Make sure you are being extra careful while transporting it (even weak shocks can cause the piano to go out of tune and sometimes even lead to real damage). To be safe, it is smart to find a hauler to ship your piano.

When hiring a hauler to transport a piano, it’s crucial to specify exactly what will be transported, because not every hauler with enough space in his car to fit a piano can be trusted with transportation of musical instruments. The instrument has to be protected against tilting during sudden turns, but also against any shocks that may happen during transportation. Constant tremors going on for a long period of time may lead to permanent damage to the piano.

There is one more benefit in hiring a hauler to ship your piano. Professional transport providers usually possess a product liability insurance, thanks to which if any damage happens to your precious cargo, you will be able to demand a compensation.
