Your Steinway piano is a large, heavy and fragile item to move. Because of its high value and intricacy of its moving parts, we recommend that you only use specialist piano movers to transport the instrument. We offer a fully insured piano removal service throughout the UK and Europe. We can also arrange the import and export of pianos worldwide.
For further information, please contact our removals department.
Any experienced piano owner knows that you are never to try to move your piano yourself. Grand pianos can weigh around 100 pounds for each foot of length. Attempting to move your prized Steinway piano can result in injury to you or irreparable damage to your Steinway.
A professional piano mover will not only have the necessary experience to ensure your piano is safely moved to its new location but will have the equipment needed to keep it secure while travelling. Pianos are large, heavy and uniquely shaped compared to other furniture. A specialist will be experienced in moving pianos, including moving a grand piano, upstairs, navigating tight corners and working with general logistical difficulties.
After your piano is safely installed in its new home, we recommend having an experienced professional check and tune it to ensure it has retained its incomparable sound, tone and responsiveness.
