From time to time we need to ship a thing in unusual size or weight. That type of cargo isn’t usually shipped by couriers. Pianos seem to be a perfect example of that. They are often assigned as irregular and delicate loads. What is more, among that category pianos are considered to be one of the most delicate loads. That is why pianos must be treated specially during preparation for shipping. Shipping a piano may be expensive, hence when you plan to hire a transport provider, make sure that you opt for the most beneficial option for you.
Moving a piano by yourself vs. with a hauler
If you decide to ship a piano by yourself, you ought to have in mind that from time to time a well-done transportation will require a dismantlement of the instrument. Also, it is important to know that during road shipping a piano must stay on an stable base.
Nevertheless, piano removing isn’t an activity that could be done alone. So, the most convenient method is to hire a transport provider. On Clicktrans you will find not only professional and verified transport providers but also companies that specialise strictly in piano shipping. Cooperation with a hauler via Clicktrans gives you certainty that people with a lot of experience will handle your valuable cargo expertly including loading as well as unloading. Removal of a piano is definitely not a simple task to do thus it really requires an assistance. This type of instrument may weight at least 220 lb to even 660 lb!
Packaging before pick-up
The holder of a piano is typically responsible for packaging of the piano for the transport. The instrument may be secured with bubble foil, textiles, wastepaper or cardboard. Don’t forget to extra protect sharp edges. It is important to secure the lid. Cover the lid with blanket and secure it with duct tape. Lid should be protected so it won’t be able to open during transportation.
Moving an instrument to a vehicle
It is very dangerous to move a piano without any help from a transport provider. However, in case you want to do it, here are a few rules you ought to follow. First and foremost, this is a job for minimum 3-4 people. There is no chance that you can manage it alone or with only 1 man by your side. What is more, plan your route between apartment and a vehicle. Think if there are any obstacles on the way. Ensure that you are able to overcome them without any difficulties. There are a lot of factors you need to take into consideration: the distance from the apartment to the vehicle, the weight of the instrument, the number of floors in the building etc. In the end, during heavy lifting use gloves as well as lifting straps because safety is always the most important. Wrong lifting may turn into lots of pain as well as health issues.
That is why Clicktrans is a great solution for every piano owner who search for shipping services. You only need to list your load then transport companies will place their quotes. You may choose the best option for you. Cost isn’t everything. It is important to find out if the courier has experience in piano moving.
