Moving a Piano in Memphis with Big League Movers
Pianos are not as common in American homes as they once were, but they are still a cherished way to bring music into the home. In Memphis, pianos have long been part of music in religious worship and the city is known for its soul, gospel, blues, and rock ‘n’roll. Your piano may be an heirloom passed down from a parent or grandparent and something you hope to pass on to your children. This instrument adds joy to your home and can help foster a love of classical music and music theory in children.
When you are ready to move, your piano deserves special care and respect to avoid damage. Did you know modern pianos have up to 10,000 moving parts? When choosing a dependable piano moving company in Memphis, make sure you choose movers with the equipment and training necessary to ensure your piano makes it to your new home unharmed.
Big League Movers is one of the best piano moving companies in Memphis and committed to giving your instrument the special attention it needs on moving day.
Top Reasons for Hiring Professional Memphis Piano Movers
Whether you’re moving near or far, you already have a lot on your plate. Moving can be a physically demanding and stressful experience without the right help. One of the hardest aspects of moving? Relocating large and/or delicate items that may come with logistical challenges. Pianos are both fragile and heavy, not to mention expensive. A piano can weigh up to 800 pounds and contain thousands of delicate internal parts. Moving a piano in Memphis isn’t a DIY task; it requires skill and the right tools to avoid damage. Our Memphis piano movers are a cost-effective solution to:
- Prevent damage to your piano from improper moving techniques
- Avoid damage to your home while the piano is moved
- Reduce the risk of damage to delicate internal components
- Avoid the risk of injury and physical strain moving an item that weighs hundreds of pounds
- Overcome the logistical challenges of moving a large item, especially from a second story
Cost is a major concern that prompts many people to attempt a DIY piano move. However, the cost of piano movers in Memphis is nothing compared to the cost of damage to hardwood floors and walls, the piano itself, or injury to yourself or a pet or child. Remember that it doesn’t take much to cause serious damage to a piano. Even piano tuning can cost $150 or more, but serious scratches or damage to moving parts can easily cost hundreds or more to repair.
Ready to move and want your piano to make it to your new home without injury, damage, heavy lifting, or risk? Turn to the best Memphis piano moving company to help you.
Our Memphis Piano Movers Use Specialized Equipment & Training
While you may not attempt to move a grand piano on your own, an upright piano may seem like an easier task. However, don’t underestimate how delicate pianos truly are! Your piano has up to 10,000 (or even more!) moving parts that are sensitive to vibration, movement, and position. Improper technique can cause costly damage to the internal components. A trustworthy piano moving company in Memphis brings the experience, training, and specialized equipment needed to safely move your instrument.
At Big League Movers, we use our own specialized piano moving equipment to protect your piano (and your floors) from damage. This includes:
- Piano dollies are used to carefully transport upright pianos down stairways, through doorways, and up the truck loading ramp
- Piano skid boards are used to safely move baby grand and grand pianos once the legs are removed so the piano can be tipped
- Shrink wrap, tie-down straps, and moving blankets are all used to protect your piano’s exterior from scratches while it’s being moved and on the truck
- Hardware floor sliders are used to prevent floor impressions that may be used while using a dolly
Not all movers are prepared for the task of moving a piano, but many will still eagerly offer to move your delicate and cherished piano without the proper training and equipment. At Big League Movers, all our piano movers in Memphis receive special training on the correct techniques for moving all types of pianos. This ensures the proper care and steps are taken to get your instrument to your new home without harm.
Memphis Piano Moving Cost
How much does it cost to hire a piano moving company in Memphis? There are many factors that may be considered, but piano moving services are certainly affordable – especially compared to the cost of damage from improper moving techniques!
At Big League Movers, we offer affordable piano moving rates set depending on the size/type of piano and the moving distance.
As a general rule, upright pianos are easier and more affordable to move than large grand pianos that require removal of the legs. Accessibility issues that require hoisting or complex maneuvers may increase your cost.
With Big League Movers, you can rest easy knowing our affordable Memphis piano movers have you covered. We offer competitive, affordable rates with moving performed by trained specialists for your peace of mind.
