Piano transportation

Pianos just as all of the musical instruments are considered to be delicate cargo. Shipping them often turns out to be quite difficult, not only because almost all of them are quite vulnerable to breaking, but also because all the instruments are rather expensive. With pianos there is additional obstacle: they usually are of massive size and weight, which makes them even harder to transport safely.

While preparing your piano for transportation, make sure you secure the lid with some Scotch tape as well as secure the corners of the item with some Styrofoam. To make the transportation between the apartment and the transporting vehicle easier, consider using a dolly.

It is impossible to ship a piano without any help. A grand piano often weights up to 300 kg – you need approx. 6 other people to carry it to the transporting car. Make sure you are being especially cautious during transportation (even minor shocks may cause the piano to go out of tune and sometimes even lead to real damage). If you want to be sure the cargo is safe, it is smart to find a hauler to ship your piano.

When hiring a transport provider 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 should be trusted with transportation of musical instruments. The piano has to be secured not only in case of sudden turns, but also against any shocks that may happen during transportation. Continual tremors going on for a long period of time can cause permanent damage to the instrument.

What’s more, there is an additional advantage of finding a hauler to transport your piano. Professional transport providers often have a product liability insurance, thanks to which should anything happen to your precious cargo, you will be entitled to compensation.
