Moving House with a Piano

The Pianoforte

The piano is widely thought to be the nation’s most popular instrument to learn so it’s no wonder that there are approximately four million pianos in the UK, with around 4000 upright and grand piano’s being sold each year. Pianos are beautiful pieces of furniture which all of the family can enjoy, but when it comes to moving house, especially in urbanised areas, piano removals can be tricky.

How to Move a Piano

At Clockwork Removals all of our piano moves are handled by expert teams with specialist equipment to aid what can sometimes be a complicated moving process. As most of you will probably be aware pianos are very heavy and the older upright pianos are usually top heavy so moving an upright piano can be more difficult.

Grand pianos have a larger surface area and this can pose obvious problems for grand piano moving if you are navigating them through narrow doorways and up cramped staircases. So even if you are moving from a basement flat to a penthouse apartment you can rest assured that your piano will be delivered safely and professionally.

After we have been fully briefed on the access to and from your old and new property, we then carefully wrap the piano in our specialist materials to ensure it is fully protected during the move. As an extra precaution we also always make sure we have extra team members on hand to help with transporting your valuable instrument.

With decades of experience moving hundreds of pianos including Steinways and Bechsteins, we still aim to take every possible precaution to minimise risk to your belongings. Our flexible and fully insured removals solutions will give you that extra peace of mind that your furniture and personal belongings are in the safest of hands.
