Owning a piano is a great thing. This is a prized possession of yours and expensive too. So, when you are moving to a new place and planning to move your piano, you have to plan it properly. You surely don’t want to damage part of it.

This is why you need to understand that piano moving is not a DIY job. You might feel possessive of your grand musical instrument, but you don’t have the expertise to move it easily. On the other hand, we, College Dudes Help U Move are a renowned team of Raleigh movers. We have plenty of experience in moving heavy belongings like pool tables or pianos. So, hire us and manage the move of your piano easily. How can you do that? Take a look.

Take the Measurements

The piano is a heavy and bulky instrument. No matter whether it is an upright piano or a grand one, you need to take the measurement of it properly. Find out what can be the potential obstruction on the way of moving the piano. Yes, you are hiring movers in Raleigh. But you know your home the best. Measure the doorways and hallways to find out if you can move the piano without obstructing or damaging it.

Get Packing Supplies or Rely on Charlotte Moving Company

The piano is not a regular belonging to pack. You need to make sure that the keys and the pedals are protected. Wrap the lid over the keyboard and secure it with tape so that it can protect the keys. Secure the pedals with plastic stretch wrap. After that, you need to use the moving blanket to wrap the whole piano from the side. Don’t try to bring the piano on your own to the truck. You will need a dolly to wheel it out. Wait for us, the licensed and insured Charlotte moving company. We will take it from here. We will bring the dolly and the ramp to wheel your piano out of the house and get it on the truck.

Fine Tune Your Piano after the Move

While moving, your keys might shift. So, be prepared so that once you move the piano, you are fine tuning it. Otherwise, the keys will sound a bit off. However, don’t do it right after the move. Give some time. It will be better if you tune it after a month or so.

    I saw the reviews of this company after I had already booked them. I was really nervous about them coming to my move. These gentlemen showed up on time and provided an excellent service. They took great care and handling all of my items … More that I packed up. They asked me questions when they had them, and genuinely made sure that I was happy with how they were stacking boxes and loading the truck. I would absolutely use this company again. The total time it took to pack up my one bedroom apartment and move 10 minutes across town and unload my items to my house, was around three hours or so. These guys rock!

They were kind, respectable, and personable. I absolutely … More will use them on my next move. Best moving crew. I give 5 plus stars.

    We were a military family of more than 30 years, so we are more than a little familiar with the art of moving and the characteristics of top notch moving companies. Not terribly long ago a local move had us searching for a moving company. … More It didn’t take long for us to settle on College Dudes Help You Move. Their professional presentation and obviously experienced staff made College Dudes stand head and shoulders above any other companies that we might have been considering.. On moving day their staff showed up at the scheduled time with a written plan for the day’s activities that they readily shared with us. They handled our belongings with care and even went so far as to make suggestions about transporting our house plants. In our many, many moves this one stands out as the absolute best.

    During military career, I moved 11 times in 8 years. And over moved 4 times since. So I know movers. College Dudes is one of the best. It's well run, well organized, and, you're replied to In a timely manner. And I love that they … More employ college students, which helps them make money that could possibly help them offset some of those student loans that weigh them down for YEARS after college. So by using them, not only do I get a quality, insured move, but I have a small part in helping a student achieve eventual financial freedom. Would definitely use them for my next move.

    College Dudes Help U Move was the best moving experience I have ever had. I have moved many times through the US.
    From the initial order to the final box delivered. The men showed early and we’re prepared. They performed a walk through
    … More the house. They made a quick plan and began work.
    The owner, Abraham, stopped by to ensure the move was on track. He was a delight and very professional.
    Later in the day the GM stopped in and had his men move a few items that we were leaving with the house that were too bulky for me to get my hands around and they willingly and quickly went into action.
    Moving is always stressful. It was nice having professionals that not only performed the job with speed and professionalism but the little extra help went a long way.
    Thanks again College Dudes Help U Move.

    I used College Dudes Help U Move to move things from a storage unit and secondary location to a single family residency this past week. Three guys showed up who were kind, thoughtful, and quick. They efficiently moved all my furniture and … More boxes, wrapped things up that could get damaged, and made sure to put things in the correct rooms so unpacking would go smoother. All of my belongings were packed and mostly wrapped prior to their arrival which made the move quick and painless. Could not recommend them more.
