4 Tips for (Safely) Packing & Transporting a Piano

4 Tips for (Safely) Packing & Transporting a Piano

Are you planning on moving a piano from one location to another? Regardless of whether that’s simply down the street or across the country, Express Movers is a professional moving company that can help you move a piano safely.

In fact, we have compiled a list of 4 tips for moving a piano (including how to pack it) to ensure that your piano arrives in its original condition. Let’s take a look at them below:

1. Securing the Piano

Securing the piano is a key step before loading it into the moving truck. We recommend covering the piano with padded moving blankets or bubble wrap to protect it against potential scratches or damage during transport.

2. Disassemble Parts

If your piano has parts that can be disassembled, i.e, the pedals, then it might be worthwhile removing these for the time being and packing them separately for the move. This can prevent them from being damaged and it also makes the piano easier to move. You could also remove the piano lid to stop it from opening – the piano lid can then be covered with a thick blanket or bubble wrap.

3. Use a Dolly

A dolly is useful for moving the piano to the moving truck and loading it safely. Furniture straps should be used to secure the piano to the dolly, holding it tightly in place. To ensure that this is done properly, see the next tip!

4. Hire a Professional Removals Company

We highly suggest turning to professionals when it comes to moving a piano, especially as pianos are large and heavy. Instead of struggling to move the piano by yourself, you can rely on a moving company (like Express Movers!) to do the heavy lifting for you. They can also ensure that the piano is transported carefully, with experienced drivers on hand.
