Relocating the piano is harder than you think. It’s tricky — and risky— to do it alone. After all, they’re big, and heavy, don’t come cheap, and have plenty of intricate parts that must be handled with care. Otherwise, along with the big move, you’ll also have to foot the expensive refinishing or repair bill. Yikes!
Why is the piano moving so difficult?
Relocating piano comes with many challenges, mostly because they’re big, bulky, and expensive. On top of that, one of its most defining characteristics also proves to be its most pressing point when it comes to relocation — its odd shape makes it hard to pack and carry. Plus, they are often used to add visual interest to a room. It becomes even more critical that it doesn’t attain any scratches or marks when being transferred. Plus, its mechanics also don’t suffer. These factors make it challenging to undertake this move personally. It’s risky, and any wrong action can result in expensive repairs — and you’ll end up having severe back pain.
