That beautiful instrument may be a joy for you to have around your home, but if the time comes when you have to move your piano, it can be one of the more worrisome items to contend with. Pianos of just about any size or stature are hard to maneuver. Many piano owners make the costly mistake of not hiring a professional piano moving company, such as All Ontario Piano Movers, to move their instrument just to save money. However hiring professional piano movers is one of the smartest decisions you can make and will be well worth the costs in the end. Here is a quick look at why it is always best to hire a professional to move your piano.
Having the piano professionally moved protects your investment.
Pianos are not a cheap instrument. If you are like most people who own a piano, you invested quite the sum of money in it or it is worth a great deal to you in sentimental value. Moving the piano on your own leaves your prized possession at risk for being damaged, and these damages are never cheap to repair. For example, you could easily break one of the legs of the piano or scrape its finish while trying to navigate it through your home and onto a moving truck. Professional piano movers will take great care to properly wrap and protect your instrument before it is moved at all.
Having your piano professionally moved removes the risk of personal injury.
Pianos are considered to be one of the heaviest instruments. Even though the piano may not look like it would be that heavy, the collaboration of the heavy outer casing, inner strings and components, and the rest of the parts can add up to hundreds of pounds. Too many piano owners try to move this instrument on their own and end up injuring themselves in the process.
Having the piano professionally moved means you will avoid costly investments in moving materials.
Depending on how your home is made and how the piano will have to be navigated, you could end up spending quite a bit of money to invest in moving supplies that will help you maneuver such a large item. From dollies to wheel the thing around to sturdy straps to keep it locked in place, by the the time you invest in the necessary tools you could probably just pay a professional to tackle the task for you.Share

When I met my husband twenty years ago, he was playing a guitar in a band. Over the past twenty years, my husband has accumulated a large collection of guitars that we simply don't have the space for. Instead of pushing my husband to get rid of the ones he doesn't use anymore, we decided that some of them could be moved to a storage unit up the road from our home. He went through a lot of work preparing the guitars before putting them in storage to make sure that they would remain in perfect condition while being stored. Our blog will help you prepare and store your guitars safely.
