Everyone enjoys busy on their own, particularly when it means saving money by taking on a job that would otherwise be left to the experts. One of those duties seems to be moving a piano. Most people seem to believe that all it takes to move a piano is strength, but protecting it is just as critical.

While everyone knows that a piano produces good sounds, did you know that they also have over 10,000 mechanical components? It can be difficult to move such a fragile, heavy, and complicated instrument without damaging it, and professionals are ideally qualified to do so safely. You can do it on your own, but it will take some planning and a lot of support.

If you hire a skilled piano mover or do it yourself, make sure you understand all of the risks and costs involved. If you hire a licensed mover, the cost of the move could range from $200 to $1,200, based on the size of the piano, the distance you're moving it, and whether or not you're moving it up or down steps. With movers, there are fewer chances of harm and injury because they use the proper equipment and procedures and will know the best way to transfer your piano into its new location.

Things you need moving a piano

Pads or sheets for movers 

These blankets or pads can cover your piano's finish during the drive. They often shield the piano from straps, tape, and any bumps that might occur during transport.

Shoulder harness or belt

This strap device helps movers to lift large objects by correctly using their legs and shoulders. It won't improve your carrying capacity, but it will help you avoid accidents caused by excessive lifting.

Piano dollies 

It is a specific dolly used moving a piano, additional bearings for faster turning, and rubber wheels to protect the ground.

Strapping

To hold the piano on the dolly or the piano frame, you'll need good strapping. Look for locking straps or straps with ratchets to make tightening and securing the strapping a breeze. A "hump strap" is another choice to consider. By extending the use of the muscles, it aids in the lifting of big, heavy objects. This is particularly helpful when climbing stairs. Wrap it around your hands, then around the bottom of the piano's wheels, and gently pick it up.

Piano board

Also known as a skid board, is a big piece of plywood that has been padded. A skid board is used to drive a piano by strapping the instrument's body to it. The body is then shifted by placing the board on a piano dolly.
