Oxford Piano Movers

Piano moving is often quite expensive. However, with proper research and knowing what you are getting into, the price can be reduced significantly. There are many different factors that will affect greatly how much a piano will cost, and once you familiarize yourself with these, you can attempt to lessen the piano moving cost in your own case.

First and foremost you need to decide whether or not you are going to hire either a local piano moving company or a larger national piano moving company. If you are looking to save money on your piano moving, then you should try to use a local piano mover, since these are more affordable, but you must remember that you are hiring them for a service, and any mistakes can be costly. If you are looking to save some money, then you can save a lot of money hiring a national moving company. These companies are very high-tech and can move your musical instrument very quickly, but you must be sure they have the proper insurance in place, especially if you have a valuable antique musical instrument.

You also need to consider how you are going to transport your piano from one place to another. Do you need to hire a moving truck? Can you just borrow someone’s truck? How about using a flatbed truck? Local moving prices are often less, but it is wise to ask a local piano mover about their rates beforehand, and compare them to the national rates, since national rates are usually much higher.

One of the most important things you need to know when it comes to piano moving costs, is how long the distance is that you are moving your piano long distance. If you only need your piano to be moved a short distance, then there are companies out there that will come to you and move it for you for a very reasonable price. However, if you need the piano to be moved a long distance, you may have to hire piano movers to do the job for you. The total cost of long-distance piano moving may include the actual cost of the truck and equipment, the fees for the moving company, and the rest of the materials and supplies that you need to take with you in the truck. Many moving companies will also include the charges for having to have the piano opened when you arrive at your new home. That is a very small amount of money compared to what you will spend to actually buy all those piano doors, end pieces, and other accessories for your piano.

There is one thing that can really add to the total cost of moving your piano that isn’t talked about very much, and that is crating. Crating is the professional moving of pianos that involve putting it on a large conveyor belt and sending it through many different tunnels, while being lifted up and down the conveyor belt several times. It is a long, complicated job that requires a great deal of manpower, equipment, and coordination. Although it may seem like a simple move, it is still a big job and requires people who are trained and experienced in this area. You should also ask the movers, how long the crating process will take, so that you know how long the entire move crating will take as well.

Some of the pros of crating include the fact that the piano will be protected from the weather-controlled environment. Crating a piano in a climate-controlled facility will help your instrument stay in good shape, and prevent it from getting damaged during transportation. You also don’t have to worry about how you are going to get your instrument to the new location once you’ve crated it. Most professional movers offer this option, and most people are happy with the results.

Another one of the pros to moving your upright pianos on a dolly is that you don’t have to pay an extra fee to have them moved. You usually have to pay a local moving company a base price in order to rent a dolly, but you don’t have to pay an additional fee to move upright pianos on a dolly. This makes dollies perfect for those who want to save money, and who aren’t comfortable moving their pianos by themselves. You can also save money if you hire a professional mover instead of hiring a group of friends. Most moving companies will charge an extra fee if you hire more than just two or three people, but you will still save money because the professionals will do an all-inclusive move, including the transport, dolly, and upright piano.

Other pros to moving your piano on your own include the fact that you will know how long your piano has been in your home. Usually, pianos are considered to be ‘time share’ property. This means that each family owns the instrument, and it passes down from generation to generation. When you move your piano, it is with you in spirit, and as long as you take care of the instrument, it will stay in good shape. In addition, movers specialize in moving musical instruments and can ensure that your instrument will be safe during the entire move.

    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!
  • Avatar Patrice Hall ★★★★★ 4 months ago

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. Thank you College Dudes!

    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.
