Frequently Asked Questions
What information do I need to have before I schedule my move?
- Before you schedule your move you should know if you have an upright piano, a grand piano or a console piano (upright but not as tall).
- You should know the size of your piano.
- If it is upright or console, measure it from the floor to the top.
- If it is a grand piano, measure the length from the keyboard to the curve at the far end.
- You need to have the address of where the piano is located as well as the address where the piano will be delivered.
- Are there any stairs, turns or landings inside or outside the origin or destination locations?
- What date would you like your piano moved?
- Are there any special needs or circumstances for your move?
Are you registered and insured?
Yes, we are registered and insured with the State of Florida and the State of Alabama.
How will you move my piano?
We use the PianoLift piano moving machine and human caution to move your piano. Usually, moving a piano requires the lift machine and one to two people. For larger pianos and more complicated moves, three or four movers may be required.
How much will it cost to move my piano?
The cost to move your piano depends on many things including the distance of the move, the size of the piano, moving date, and any obstacles, stairs, or landings involved in the pickup or delivery. You can call us at (850) 457-7557 or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a quote. You can also fill out the form here.
Will my piano need to be tuned after moving?
The short answer: maybe. Moving a piano has very little effect on its tuning. What does have a profound effect, however, is the humidity difference between the origin, the moving vehicle, and the destination. If, after acclimation to the new location, the piano is out of tune, we do offer piano tuning services.
