Top Reasons to Hire Professional Piano Movers in NYC

Moving a piano is a complex and arduous task that’s best left to experienced professionals. Here are a few reasons to consider hiring a piano moving company for your relocation:

It’s the Surest Way to Prevent Damage

Pianos are delicate instruments that require skill to move. Older models are particularly susceptible to damage and require handlers that know what they’re doing. If you’re looking to keep your prized musical instrument in its current condition, make sure to hire a professional that can expertly disassemble, wrap, crate, and reassemble it.

Avoid Injury

Pianos can be unbelievably bulky and heavy. However, you may think that, with the help of a few friends, you can easily move one. Think again. Ranging from a few hundred pounds to over half a ton, these behemoth instruments are no joke. To avoid back injury, a bruised ego or worse, contact Imperial Moving & Storage. We’re happy to help you avoid any issues with your piano moving experience.

Movers Come Trained and Equipped

Piano moving requires special moving equipment, including a truck and dollies. Trying to move a piano in Manhattan or the other four boroughs without the proper equipment is asking for trouble. Quality piano moving specialists are highly trained and rely on several specialized tools, harnesses, and dollies to do the job right. Just as an amateur shouldn’t attempt to fix electrical issues, it’s a wise move to hire someone with adequate experience and skills to transport your piano.

NYC is Logistically Difficult to Navigate

Even if you’ve lived here your whole life, New York City is a tough place to transport an upright or grand piano on your own. Along with traffic and congestion, you may have to contend with multiple floors, stairs, and narrow hallways. The complexities of an NYC move are exhausting and can place your musical instrument at risk for major damage. Our NYC movers know all the tips and tricks to save you the potential pain and cost of trying to do it yourself.

Imperial is Licensed & Insured

Not every moving outfit is properly licensed and insured. Don’t find this out the hard way with a damaged piano. Along with carrying up-to-date licensing and full insurance coverage, we practice risk management via comprehensive training and safety protocols to significantly reduce the likelihood of an incident.

It’s Worth the Price

The cost of hiring professional piano movers is incredibly inexpensive given the value of the instrument: Pianos aren’t cheap. A grand piano can range in value from a few thousand dollars to six or even seven figures. So, why would anyone want to take the chance with a DIY attempt or an amateurish mover? To protect your investment, it pays to hire a top-rated piano relocation company. Your peace of mind is worth it!
