Knightdale Piano Movers

When it comes to moving a piano from one room to another in your home, it’s easy to make a mess of things if you don’t know what you’re doing. Pianos are large, heavy pieces of furniture and anything that can be moved tends to be dangerous. While the professional movers who come to your rescue might seem like the ideal solution, you might want to reconsider moving a piano by yourself. Piano moving can conjure up visions of huge torsos and muscular men with huge arms, but really only two or three individuals of average strength can accomplish most piano moving tasks if they even have any brains, enough experience, the correct tools, and a general knowledge of when and where to use a little physical force.

The people who are qualified to do most piano moving are experienced movers who use proper moving equipment. You will need two people for each leg of the move: one to move the seat and the other to move the hammers (or axlees) that keep the piano balanced. Be sure to let the other person know exactly how many keys or stings your piano has so that he or she can be sure not to overdo it and cause injury. You can also ask your local movers for recommendations. However, there are a number of safety tips that you should follow in any piano moving situation.

Make sure your piano is completely empty before you let the piano movers take it away. Empty the pockets where you put your records, and then check them carefully against the inside dimensions of the moving truck. The padded interiors of a moving truck provide extra cushioning for your instrument, which means less chance of breakage during transit. Check the locking mechanisms of your doors. If you have an electronic model, it is especially important that the lock is in working order. If your piano lid comes with keys, be sure the locks are changed.

Move your piano at an angle. When the movers bring the car around, they will lean the piano back against the floor and tip it forward, causing it to rock as it is rolled across the floor. This is the proper position to move your piano if you do not want to get dinged up from the sides as the moving truck is being hauled. Do not move your piano too fast or too slow. If you start to feel dizzy, stop and rest. Otherwise, you could damage your instrument.

Use professional movers who use permanent straps instead of lightweight ropes to move your piano. Ropes can be kicked, wrapped around and swung like a rope, but professional movers who use permanent straps will prevent your instrument from breaking during transport. Permanent straps are made out of heavy duty nylon webbing material and are secured around the piano using heavy-duty moving straps. The piano lid will have a special hole drilled in it so that you can slide it completely out of the car when it is transported.

Never use just any skid board to make your piano move. Always use quality skid boards made specifically for piano moving. They are made from materials that are strong and will not be damaged by the friction caused by a moving vehicle. Skid boards come in several different sizes; there are even some made just for large pianos! If your instrument is too large for a skid board, then use a dolly. A dolly is a very solid device with a long handle that is capable of lifting and moving your instrument without harming it.

Most people who have had to hire professional piano movers have only good things to say about the men and women who showed up on the day of the move. The people who arrived prepared were able to check out the instrument in its new home before they even took it out of the car. This was extremely important because they could not just tell the man who was loading their piano that it was too heavy and too wide for the stairs; they had to be sure before loading it. The people who hired the piano moving company were also very considerate; they took care of transporting the instrument to the new home, helped unpack the instrument, and set it up in the appropriate place.

Even if you do not have a lot of money to spare for transporting pianos, hiring professionals to do the job well is still a good idea. In fact, hiring movers who have experience is even better than hiring inexperienced movers. Just remember to choose movers who use quality moving equipment to avoid having to replace broken or stolen equipment during transit, as well as how to move a piano safely and securely on flat or uneven ground.

    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!

    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.
