Piano Moving And Storage Services

Pianos are always difficult to move because they combine several qualities. They are

  • Heavy
  • Odd-shaped
  • Delicate

Do-it-Yourself piano moving can be difficult. While it may cut down on cost, it is a very complex operation, especially navigating a piano out of one location and into another.

That’s why moving a piano requires more than just brute strength – it also requires specialized equipment, knowledge and skill to avoid unfortunate consequences. Hiring a firm such as Dearman with professional movers and substantial experience successfully moving pianos is your best option. We will ensure your piano is:

  • properly disassembled and parts protected
  • wrapped appropriately for safety while leaving vents to avoid condensation
  • extra care is taken moving your instrument out of its old location and into the new.

Long Distance Piano Moving

While many people rarely think about moving a piano, the reality is that pianos are heavy, cumbersome and costly to move. These acoustic instruments produce beautiful music, but this is only possible because of the intricate internal mechanisms and they need to be handled with caution and care when moving, especially long distances. If you need to move a piano across the country, our affiliate, United Van Lines, will be assisting in the move and your piano will be moved with other goods. We will ensure full protection of your piano as it is moved to the truck for transport and stored properly among other items being shipped. All necessary precautions are taken to accommodate your delicate piano.

Specialized Training and Equipment to move Pianos

Special equipment is absolutely required if the piano must be moved up or down stairs and because of the potential for slipping or overbalancing.  It’s one thing to move an upright piano – which can still cause issues due to way weight is distributed, it’s almost always top heavy and that can cause immense problems not in moving it but also in transporting it,

Other types of pianos – baby or concert grand pianos – add problems because of their shape and dimensions.  Their shape and size make it very unlikely that they can be overseen by less than a full crew – depending on the location and situation that add up to as many as five separate movers.  Obviously, that means that this is not an inexpensive proposition if you hire professionals.  

Granted, you can purchase moving insurance but many pianos have more than a monetary importance.   Many pianos are heirlooms and may even have distinguished history or have been the property of famous or important people.  That’s why hiring a professional company to move a piano should be fully researched.  Dearman is among the most trusted firms for piano moving because of their highly trained and experience crews.

"We were extremely pleased with Dearman Moving. Fair pricing, quick response to questions, frequent contact and a willingness to work with us when we had to move up our date. A special thanks to Nicole Lang for the assistance she provided throughout the process. The packers and loaders were efficient and professional. Despite snow on the second day of loading, they kept to the schedule so that we could leave Mansfield at a reasonable time. I would recommend Dearman to anyone."

Nate Temple, Jordan H, Colton Henderson, Bill Hardin, and Cody Henderson did an outstanding job moving my family a few weeks ago. It was a long, hot move and the guys were above and beyond professional and patient. We were so grateful for their efforts and attention to detail. I recommend them to anyone needing to move. I knew it would be a hard move and hoped that all would go well. I could not be more appreciative for all they did on the two-day move. Dearman and the team are amazing!!!

"This company is wonderful to work with. Everyone I spoke to from start to finish were very professional and friendly. The movers, Chuck and Bill, were fabulous. When they got to my house, the road crew was working on the road I’m front of my house. The guys definitely went above and beyond, taking my furniture out the front door, down a small hill to the truck at the side of the house. Great job guys! I 100% recommend this company."
Facebook Review
This is the 2nd time I have used Dearman moving and storage and both times have been pleasant experiences. Colton was present for both moves and trust me, you want him there. He’s very professional and knows how to pack a truck and make sure your belongings are safe. Jordon, Cameron and Matt was also with Colton for our 2nd big move and all the guys were pleasant and worked very hard to get the job done Quickly and safely. Overall, from the first contact to execution, this was an excellent company to work with.
