Need Some Piano Movers in NYC?
Looking for some NYC Piano Movers, we are your guys. We will move your piano no matter how heavy your instrument is. If you are stubborn and don’t want to hire piano movers but want to know how to move a piano and other heavier items, here is how to do it. On a side note, moving pianos can untune them. So after your piano is settled in it’s no location play each note, if you think it sounds off get an expert to readjust it.
-The first step for moving a piano, is closing and locking the keyboard. Close and lock the lid as well as the music stand. The legs will probably not be removable but if they are, they will reduce the weight of the piano if removed.
-The second step is wrapping the piano. First wrap the piano with blankets then with plastic wrap to prevent damage and dirt.
-The third step to moving a piano is, using at least two people, to put the piano in a dolly. Your dolly should has a weight limit. Make sure that it has the capacity and proper area to move a piano.
-The final step is use heavy duty ramps as much as possible when moving. Especially on to and off your moving truck.
Moving Tips from NYC Piano Movers
-When moving large items remove all drawers first to lighten the load. On a side note that you don’t always have to empty out your drawers for a move. You can wrap up the drawer in plastic wrap. This should cut down on time and the need for boxes.
-If you think you are going to move a lot, it might be smart to invest in a dolly. Dollies also come in handy when you are rearranging furniture too. For incredibly heavy items (just a reminder for the other NYC Piano Movers), dollies are a must.
Moving Tips from NYC Piano Movers Part 2
-To save energy, put plastic sliders underneath the legs of the furniture and slide the furniture as much as you can before having to lift. Don’t slide furniture without putting something underneath the legs because you could scratch your floor or damage your furniture from the resistance of the dragging.
-Like mentioned earlier in the NYC Piano Mover section, at Dumbo Moving & Storage we wrap heavy items and pieces of furniture with blankets and plastic wrap and suggest you do the same if you are moving on your own. First wrap the item in blankets or towels then go over it with plastic wrap. The blankets will form a layer of protection for the item and keep the item clean. While the plastic wrap will keep the blankets from sliding off and create another barrier of protection.
