There are some things in life you should hand off to other, more qualified people. I will not list them all here, I am just going to tell you that moving a piano is one of those things!
Moving is a stressful time, and if a piano is involved it pretty much quadruples that stress! There are numerous reasons why you should absolutely hire professional movers to help you with this task, and I will list the main reasons below:
- Injuries – Every year, many people find their way to emergency rooms all around the world because they try to take on the monumental task of moving their piano on their own. There are too many ways you can get hurt during this process to list, but a few of the more common ones are back pains, broken bones (hands and feet), and many others. All around, it is just dangerous, and if you don’t know what you are doing or don’t have the proper equipment the chances of an accident occurring go up.
- Piano Damage – I am sure people that mover their own pianos have the best intentions, however, is it really worth risking potential damages to your piano just to save a few hundred dollars? I don’t think so! There are a lot of ways a piano can get dinged up (or worse) when moving, and if you add stairs of other tricky obstacles to the mix then the odds of damage goes up.
This is only 2 reasons why we feel that hiring professionals, and utilizing resources like Move My Keys is your best bet to ensure your piano makes it to it’s destination safely!
If you decide that there is no way you will ever pay someone to move your piano, then check out this short video for some tips to get started!
For me it was a no brainer. I was faced with a move not so long ago, and had to get my piano from my old place to the new place, and I wanted it to go smooth, so I simply went to my good old friend, Mr. Google and typed in piano movers Appleton Wi and found a pro to help me get the job done. This allowed me to focus on all of the other fun stuff that comes with moving.
The moral of the story is, don’t try to move your piano yourself. Not only could you or the other people helping get hurt, but you could do some serious damage to your piano, and both of those scenarios are bad!
We hope you enjoyed this rant!
Ta ta for now!
