New Jersey Piano Moving Services

If you're lucky enough to own a piano, chances are good it's more than just another piece of furniture to you - it's a treasured possession. Perhaps your piano is a family heirloom, a favorite instrument, or even what you use to earn a living. That's why moving a piano requires exceptional care and attention to detail - you have one chance to get this right.

Here at You Move Me, we're proud to say we've successfully tackled some of the toughest moves in the state - that includes moving upright pianos in New Jersey. We've learned a lot about how to move upright pianos, and we're happy to pass on our knowledge to you.

Tips For Moving An Upright Piano:

When you're preparing to move an upright piano, a bit of preparation can go a long way towards ensuring your move goes off without a hitch. Here's some tips to help make your piano move go off without a hitch:

  • Measure your piano, taking care to double-check the height, length, and overall width.
  • If possible, lock the lid down over the keys, and secure the top board (the folding cover over the piano strings).
  • Carefully plan your exit path, making sure to measure all doorways and stairways. You might need to remove stair banisters or take doors off their hinges to move the piano out.
  • Plan where your piano will go in your new home, taking care to double-check doorways, steps, and stairways for clearance.
  • Resist the urge to roll the piano - the metal casters are not durable enough to use during a move, and relying on them could seriously damage your floor, the piano, or both.
  • Purchase one or more specialized piano dollies.
  • Recruit lots of strong family members or friends to help, and have a professional moving company available if needed.
  • Rent a large moving truck with a long, shallow ramp for easier loading.
  • Purchase furniture pads and straps to keep your piano safe and secure during transport.

Remember, upright pianos can range in weight from approximately 400 pounds right up to 800 pounds or more, making it important to take your time, double-check your measurements, and carefully plan your piano move.

Of course, if you'd rather leave moving such a large, heavy, and valuable item to the professionals, we're here to help.

We understand that your piano is valuable to you and your family, and we promise we'll take good care of you and your instrument.

Our team of strong, uniformed movers go above and beyond to take good care of you and your valuable possessions. We'll take the time to plan out our exit route, measure up your piano, and bring along as much muscle as we need to move your upright piano safely and efficiently.

During the move to your new home, we'll make sure your piano is covered and securely fastened inside our clean, well-marked moving truck to prevent damage. When it's time to unload your upright, we'll work carefully to protect your piano and your walls while we navigate our way up stairwells, through doorways, and down halls.

You should plan to have your piano re-tuned after you've been in your new home for about six weeks, as that's how long it takes to acclimate a piano to a different environment.
