Anytime a person moves it can be a difficult process. Having large, bulky, cumbersome items might make things even harder. If that’s the case then hiring piano movers might be the best strategy.
We are all aware that there are household movers that will come out to your house when you’re moving and move even your largest items. These things might range from your fridge, to your entertainment system, to your bed, to your couch, and so on and so forth. However, you might have to pay additional charges for them to move huge things like a piano, a Jacuzzi, or something to that effect. If, in some way, the charges the movers make are too much then piano movers specifically might be a good call.
Think about what might happen if you tried to move a piano yourself. Imagine you and your buddies grabbed hold of it and tried lifting – tried to move it. Now, imagine watching your piano fall down your home’s stairs and smash into a million particles on the ground. That’s what would happen, almost guaranteed. The reason is because you’re not a professional mover and thusly can’t move something like a piano.
Hiring a piano mover is just common sense. These guys move pianos everyday and are trained to handle them. They’re better at it then you and always will be. They will come to your home and move your piano for a nominal fee where ever you would like them to move it. This could be your truck, the street, or your new home. It’s they’re job to do it so they’ll be happy to.
Where can you find piano movers? Piano movers specifically might not be local in your city – I don’t know of any in my town, that might just be me though. In my opinion, do a quick search on your favorite search engine for piano movers. The results yielded should be plenty to get the ball rolling (or the piano rolling if it has wheels). And, some sites will even offer quotes on each of the popular piano mover sites, although this kind of service is generally used for bigger services such as insurance, or international moving companies. But, there might be something like that out there so take a search and see what you can find. Once you find the proper piano mover for you, check for licenses and credibility. It might just be a personal aspect of mine to check these things religiously, but I don’t think it’s a harmful one. Knowing that the company your hiring is legit is essential in the world today.
Imagine you’re having your piano moved and then the people you thought were moving it simply took it home with them? Nobody wants that kind of grief so be sure to check on licenses, affiliation with the Better Business Bureau (BBB), and any credentials or reviews you can find about the place. It’s better to be safe than sorry, don’t you think?
Overall, hiring movers for any large task is a smart idea. Think about moving large things yourself. Besides the fact that we’re all too lazy to do it ourselves anyway, there’s a good chance we could get hurt trying to. I’m not looking to get hurt moving my couch, so I’d rather have someone else do it. Someone who is a professional and won’t get hurt and won’t damage my couch. Lord knows that if I moved my couch I’d drop it and it’d break. Do you want that kind of grief? If you have a piano, hire piano movers and don’t break your back trying to move it yourself!
