Specialist Piano Movers Or General Hauliers?

Beitragvon referee » Sa 9. Feb 2019, 11:45

I wanted to ask your thoughts on the best way of relocating an upright piano. I am moving house soon and the removal company is happy to take my beloved piano, saying that they do this as routine and apparently being a bit surprised when my husband told them that I was thinking of using a specialist company. They said they've never experienced any problems in fifteen or so years apart from one occasion. I still feel a bit uneasy though and have spoken to a lovely 'piano man' who moves them all the time as his job. This will obviously cost me a lot more but he will take individual care of it and make sure that all is well once it is settled into its new home. He also said he'd take care of the floors. This is important as we are moving temporarily into rented accommodation.

I would really value your comments about your own experiences. I feel pretty certain that I will use Mr Piano Man but also feel that I may be going 'over the top' and worrying unnecessarily as well as involving myself in extra expense. HELP!!! unsure.gif

We've only ever used the 'normal' removal men and they've been very good. The last lot looked a bit sad when we said the piano had to go up nine steps but they handled it very carefully. When we came to move it from one room to another we realised how very hard it was to get it through the doorway of the room it was in, but the removal men just took it in their stride.

Years ago I had two bad experiences with general movers that made me think it's better to use a specialist. In the first case the two men got stuck on my stairs and were unable to move either up or down, just to support the piano (looking as if they would lose their hold on it at any second). I had to run next door to seek the help of one of my (new) neighbours.

In the second case, having learned my lesson, I made a point of stressing on the phone that there was a piano among my possessions, and asked the man if he was OK with that. He said he was. Nevertheless, when he had completed the removal, he tried to get me to pay extra because the piano was 'very heavy'.

I still have the image stuck in my mind of the general movers we used as they moved my boyfriend's Hammond Organ into our flat using one of those little lift things, then they had to bring it in through the window pushing and shoving all four of them.. It swayed horribly as the lift started up, looked like it was going to fall off... my boyfriend's face was a picture.

Los Angeles holds a lot of wait upon its shoulders. An eclectic mix of neighborhoods and small cities, the Pacific Ocean, and a range of mountains cling to the powerful muscle of this massive city.

Los Angeles holds many honors. It is the entertainment capital of the ENTIRE world. It is a Mecca of culture with more 225 theaters, more than 100 museums, which is more theaters and museums than any city in the world, along with 55 glorious structures designed by the world’s greatest architects, and 16 of the world’s most incredible gardens. Los Angles is also famous for its outlandishly perfect weather. The City of Angels is the only city in North America that has hosted the Summer Olympics twice. And other than Washington, D.C., Downtown Los Angeles is the largest government center in the United States. All of these things suck in tourists, who dream of a return vacation or make plans to move there. Movers in LA
