Cost Of Piano Removal For A Grand Piano
Cost of piano removal for your grand pianos for sale will depend on how you decide to move it. You have three options to consider; find specialist piano removals, let a general house removal service do the move, or attempt the move yourself. The one that looks the cheapest option is actually the one that will cost more in the long term.
You may think that moving your piano yourself is going to be the cheapest option, but before you even start to move it, you will need to buy or hire all the equipment. This will include a padded piano cover, foam sheeting, coverings for the legs and feet, a piano jack and moving wheels, a ramp, and a van with an extra-large tail lift. That is just for a ground floor move; the list is longer if there are stairs involved. Suddenly moving the piano yourself stops looking cheap. So, what about your general house movers? If they don’t have experience of moving pianos, they will need to purchase or hire the same list, and this is likely to be added to your bill. And, if they don’t have the experience or expertise needed to move your piano, there is a high chance of your piano being damaged or of an accident that hurts one of the movers. In either eventuality, if it is not covered by your insurance or the mover’s insurance, you could end up with a big bill. So that leaves you with specialist piano removals; the cost may be upfront, but you will not have any nasty surprises, and you are more likely to get your piano to arrive in one, undamaged piece.
