How does the process of moving a Piano work?
Moving a piano is no easy task. It requires the right tools, equipment, and expertise to ensure it is done correctly and safely. When moving a piano the most important step is to protect it from damage. This means securing it in a moving blanket and securing it tightly with straps. Once the piano is secured, it needs to be moved with the right tools, such as a piano dolly, to ensure it is moved in a safe manner. When moving a piano up or down stairs, it is important to have at least two people to help with the lift. Additionally, it is important to take extra care when moving it around corners and tight spaces. After the piano is in its new location, the moving blankets need to be removed and the piano needs to be tuned and adjusted for the new environment. With the right tools and expertise, piano moving can be done successfully and safely.
How much does It cost to move a Piano?
The average cost to move an upright piano in Phoenix Moving is about $150. Expect to add an additional $150 for baby grand pianos and an additional $250 for grand pianos. The final cost will ultimately depend on several factors: the type of piano, its age, whether there are sets of stairs, and the distance you're transporting it. Longer moves and larger instruments such as a grand piano will cost significantly more, as they require more equipment, extra manpower, and take more time.

Do I have to pay for the travel time?
You will be billed for the travel time from our warehouse to your origin, and for the travel time from the destination back to our parking.

Can I leave stuff inside the dresser?
The answer to this question is yes and no. You can definitely leave your light linens inside the drawers, but please make sure to take out any heavier items (i.e. jeans, files, books). Please keep in mind that our movers might be changing the position of the dresser by standing it up vertically, therefore any small articles left inside might fall behind the drawers and get lost. Bottom line is, empty dresser is easier to be carried takes less time to be wrapped and the chances of something being lost or damaged are minimal.
