We put a concert grand an the 2nd floor of a 40 foot yacht though a series of gates, around a community pool, through a labyrinth of twist and turns on a dock, stood it up on end, removed the door frame on the boats 2nd floor entry, and hoisted it up by hand over the ocean and up onto the boat. 4 Professionals below and 3 on top. Not a scratch or a dent. Turns out the owner told us every moving company he called laughed and refused. A few came out and said it was impossible. We had it set up on his boat in 1 hour. The good thing for us was that he OWNED a well known classical radio station as well. Worked out quite well for us. Referrals are what we live on. A challenge is what we live for.
We move all types of pianos: Uprights, Spinet, Grand, Baby Grand, Concert Grand, Electric, Player, Mini Grand Electric, Organs. If it has keys, we can move it.
We disassemble to lighten the weight on the piano's edge. Some companies do not.
We double pad wrap and know where to place our straps so indentations don't occur.
We use the appropriate size piano board.
We only use certified piano movers on our staff.
Most piano's require 3-4 men. The price is based on our normal hourly rates as well. Most charge an obnoxious amount. Our rates are our rates whether a piano or a bedroom set.
