Movers are specifically trained to pad and stretch wrap all pianos or organs, and they are securely placed on a piano board or 4-wheel moving dolly for transportation.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • A mover transports up to 900 lb pianos from one location to another.

  • Movers ensure items are protected from damage and are placed in the correct location upon arrival. Movers are physically fit and responsible professionals who pack items efficiently, load and unload trucks and take accurate inventory.

Note: Pianos are so heavy and so delicate you may find it tricky to pull off without damaging yourself or the piano. Despite their size and weight, pianos are relatively delicate instruments. Moving them without the proper care and attention can cause damage to the internal mechanisms of the instrument.
