How to Move a Piano: Furniture Movers Melbourne
Move Your Piano with the Leading Furniture Removalists Melbourne
Pianos are large, heavy, valuable and expensive instruments, making them incredibly difficult to move in more ways than one. Pianos already look heavy, but they’re much heavier than expected. Combine this with uneven weight distribution, tricky angles and an odd overall shape, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for disaster when moving a piano.
So How do You Move a Piano?
The first thing to know is that if you want to maintain the condition of your piano, you should call on a furniture removalist to move it for you. Improvising with basic household equipment and a few muscly friends is not ideal, and greatly increases the risk of injury to you and your helpers, as well as the risk of damage to your piano.

Some pianos already have wheels – but don’t let these fool you into thinking moving them is easy. These wheels are more decorative than practical, and can actually damage your floor due to the weight they are bearing. They’re often insecure, weak and tend to deteriorate over time, making them easy to break and expensive to repair. Another reason why you need professionals on the job!

From trolleys with strong and sturdy castors, padding and ramps to non-slip gloves and locking straps, the equipment is incomparable to household items you might consider adequate to move the piano yourself.
