    Why should you hire piano movers?

    Pianos are large and heavy as well as delicate. It’s hard to steer a piano through living spaces without hitting it against walls and door frames. All the bumping might severely damage the instrument. Piano movers Austin TX help make sure your piano isn’t damaged and doesn’t damage your home else during the process.

    Moving a piano is a delicate business and that’s why you should let piano movers of Texas take care of it.

    Protecting the piano during the move

    As we have already mentioned before, pianos are very delicate instruments. Therefore, it is very important to protect them well for the move.

    How to wrap the piano

    Use the padding or blankets to wrap the piano, especially the corners, securing it with packing tape. Don’t let the tape contact the piano’s surface. Make sure that the blanket/padding is thick enough that it’ll keep the piano protected from any hits or bumps.

    Lifting the piano

    When lifting the piano, whether that’s onto the truck or the furniture dolly, or to move it to another place in the house, do not lift it by its legs! The legs are very fragile. Also, keep it in the upright position. Putting it on the side is not good for the internal mechanics. With two people on each side of the piano, put the moving straps below the piano’s bottom, with a strap on each end. With one person holding one end of the strap (you should now have four people helping, each supporting the four corners), lift the piano onto the furniture dolly.

    Now secure it, ensuring that the piano legs are sitting flat on the dolly. If the piano has casters, either lock the casters in place (if possible) or ensures that the piano is well secured.

    Protecting the keyboard lid

    Close and lock the keyboard lid to keep it from opening during the relocation process. The keys are fragile and need to be protected. If the keyboard lid doesn’t lock, make sure it’s closed when you wrap the piano. Under no circumstances should you tape the lid directly. Should you apply any kind of abrasive onto it, you are running the risk of causing severe damage to it. It could also prove to be costly to repair a piano, while permanent marks could remain visible.

    Securing the piano in the truck

    You should put the piano on the back of the moving truck, next to the back wall – the wall that isolates the truck’s interior cabin from the space in the back. Lots of piano movers such as Evolution Moving recommend using wood planks to ensure a level flooring for the piano since most truck spaces are not equal. This helps with relieving pressure on the piano’s casters and legs which will strain to stabilize during the relocation. If you use planks, put them beside the back wall.

    Piano movers of Texas will not show up at your place without a cart

    Having a cart or a dolly is something that you will need in order to move your piano around. You should find a way to lift the piano onto the trolly and use it to roll it on the floor. There are pianos with metal wheels. While you might be tempted to try and roll the piano on them, do not do it. They are fragile and easy to break. If that happens, the entire mobility of your team and of the piano is going to suffer.

    You are going to need these in order to lift the piano off the ground and maybe even lower it over the staircase.
