Top Piano Removals related questions
With Airtasker, you can easily find a range of furniture removal specialists, packers and movers who can help you get settled to your new place quicker, or speed up your renovation or redecoration. Other than our moving services, we have pool table movers, as well as bed, trampoline, and fitness equipment removalists. For home or office relocations, we also have a man with a van service who can help pack and quickly bring your furniture at the destination.
Pianos are built to resist heavy impacts and decades of abuse, so simple movements and bumps will not easily affect its tuning. However, the climate can change the tension of the strings and affect the soundboard of your piano. For peace of mind, let your piano sit first for at least 3-4 weeks until it has completely adjusted to the new setting, then have it tuned right after.
Investing in climate-controlled storage can help you preserve your piano for a very long time rather than simply leaving them unused in garages or basements. Let our Taskers know if you need help in moving your piano to a specific piano storage site. They can help you with the packing and crating, as well as transporting and be confident that your piano will arrive safely to the storage premises.
Before they move your piano to the new room or desired area, your Tasker first measures the room, doorway, lift or staircases, and checks for any obstacles. If the piano doesn't fit in the lift, they can move them through stairs or ramps. For stairways with complicated turns and curves, the piano movers may need to dismantle them to smaller parts.
What do piano removal services include?
Don't risk moving your large upright or grand piano alone. Instead, hire a professional mover to ensure safer and more efficient handling of this valuable possession. Here at Airtasker, we have plenty of professional piano movers who can take over the stress of moving your expansive piano from one place to another. Regardless if you're relocating to another apartment or building location, or simply moving them within the same house or building, we've got you covered!
Our piano specialists cover all the steps needed to move your piano so you can have more time for yourself to relax or utilise that time arranging or decorating your space. To give you an overview, here's what to expect from our piano moving service:
Piano packing and crating service
Our packers and movers can help you secure your piano, especially if you're planning to move to another home or building location. Large, bulky, and incredibly heavy, they use a unique packing and crating method so your piano won't budge during transport.
They separate the removable parts such as the lyre, pedal feet and box, and backstay, and then store them in another labelled crate or box. The main part of the piano is usually shrink-wrapped with a pad or blanket to prevent any transit damage. When in doubt, you can ask your Tasker to get a professional foam padding for extra protection.
Our piano moving services can also provide you with a climate-controlled moving truck and ensure that your piano won't go out of tune during the transport. Our Taskers can take extensive protective measures to lock and secure the main body in the truck, as well as the other crates and boxes so they won't move and bump each other. Whether you're only going a few blocks away or heading interstate, our drivers know how to minimise bumps and excessive movements from corners.
Piano moving and relocation
Once they arrive at the new location, your piano movers unload the piano from the truck and bring them straight to the designated area. The main body remains wrapped and secured until it is ready for reassembly. This is to keep the surface and other parts free from scratches and any possible damages that might occur while in transit. If needed, your piano mover can also help with the unpacking and reassembly.
Piano moving isn't limited only to those who are moving to a new house or business location. We can also help move your grand piano within the same house, on the same floor or another floor. The same process applies.
