Rockford Piano Movers
How much does it cost to move an upright piano? That’s right, you need to understand the answer to this riddle before you put your moving budget in place. But before we get into the considerations that will influence the cost to move a piano, let’s focus on some of the variables that will impact the overall moving cost. For instance, are you moving it within the city or out of town? The distance and nature of the music (commercial) will have a big influence on the final moving cost.
The basic moveable elements of a piano include the legs, the armrests, the cymbals and the hammers. The moveable parts that are most often moveable include the tail piece, the tuning pins, the hammers, the wheels, and the nuts and bolts. The moveable parts also include piano accessories such as the picks, chucks, and the strings. If you plan to move pianos on your own, you need special dollies that fit over the front and/or rear legs. The dolly also helps to eliminate vibration caused by the wheels and will make a huge difference in the smoothness and mobility of the instrument.
