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.

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.
