Moving a piano can be really really challenging. It’s probably some of the most sensitive furniture that you currently own. I highly recommend that you only utilize professional movers as this is an enormous task to take on. Pianos are so damn heavy and so easy to inflict damage while moving it. (even with a moving dolly) And by damage I don’t just mean specifically towards the piano but also your back! By the way, the most common incident when transporting this instrument yourself are for the piano legs to get permanently damaged. However, if you are stuck on doing this yourself, have been working out at the gym, eating your spinach, taking your vitamins and can put the call out for the necessary additional brawn, here is a good video that will provide you with the basic info you need. It breaks everything down step by step. This way you will be fully prepared going in. You can also find additional details here on piano moving as there is no such thing as too much info on this moving topic.
If you have any good war stories about moving a piano, regardless of whether it was an Upright, Baby Grand or Grand, we would really love to hear from you! (There are tons of horror stories you can find on the internet, merely by googling “piano moving.”) Maybe your personal flashbacks will prevent someone from making a similar mistake in the future. The last thing you want to do is injure yourself during an important move.
