Piano Moving

As moving industry professionals, we can tell you one thing for sure - moving isn't as easy as you might think. When laymen picture moving, it's just a couple of guys loading a bunch of boxes onto a truck. But in reality, it's a tricky business - you're handling people's most private
property. And that's all well and good when you're moving a book collection. But there are items out there that are really difficult to move - that's why people hire professionals like Dorothy & Martha Moving NYC in the first place. For example, what happens when you have to move a piano? Luckily for you, our top-notch piano movers are on the task!

Why do I need to hire piano movers at all?

Well, honestly, it’s a legit question. You could call up a couple of friends, and they’ll help you out. Should you spend money on hiring piano movers at all? We’re here to tell you: absolutely yes. You see, pianos aren’t just your run of the mill bulky items. In fact, they’ve got a couple of characteristics that guarantee you won’t have an easy time moving them on your own.

A piano.
Our piano movers have all the skills you’ll ever need!

An enormous amount of weight

First of all, we’ll go out on a limb here and say you’ve probably never moved a piano on your own. It’s just one of the numerous setpieces of your living room. But once you try to actually move it somewhere, you’ll quickly realize something – pianos are extremely heavy. Yeah, we know you didn’t think they were exactly light in the first place – but you’d be surprised! That’s why you want to hire experienced piano movers from Dorothy & Martha Moving NYC. Moving a piano on your own, and unprepared for such weight, is incredibly dangerous!

The large bulk and strange shape

And it’s not just the fact that pianos are heavy – they’re also quite bulky. And not to mention that their shape is awkward when it comes to moving it through a door, or down a staircase. So how do you handle that? Do you move it as is, or disassemble it and put it together on the destination? These are all questions that can only be answered by seasoned piano movers – so don’t struggle with this! Just contact us, and we at Dorothy & Martha Moving NYC will take care of this task for you!

The fragility of a piano

If you haven’t realized this by now, we’ll put it out there plainly – pianos are extremely difficult to move. And it’s not just that they’re heavy at large. Seeing as we’re talking about an intricate musical instrument, they’re also incredibly fragile. So how exactly do you cope with all of this? An item that’s incredibly heavy, extremely large, but also very fragile at the same time? Well, the answer is: you can’t. Not on your own, anyway. Luckily for you, you’ve got the best piano movers in the business to help you out, courtesy of Dorothy & Martha Moving NYC.

There are certain aspects of moving that anyone can do. After all, it doesn’t take much experience to, for example, properly pack most of your stuff.
