Piano Moving Price & Costs
The price of moving your piano can vary depending on location, distance, and the type of piano that you need to move. If your piano is on the second floor, or in a hard to get to spot, the price may go up. Typically, piano movers will price you hourly, but you can also request for a flat rate quote. It’ll be important to be as detailed and honest as possible when requesting a quote from a professional piano moving service. The piano moving company may ask you about the size, weight, and type of piano. They may also ask about the distance from your front door, what floor the piano is on, and a variation of other questions to determine what to expect upon arrival. With this in mind, it’s important to consider all factors before calling a moving company for a quote.
The standard rate for moving your piano is between $380 to $550. This is factoring in all services, and billables, so don’t be fooled by advertisements for cheap prices. Many piano moving service providers will quote low, with an hourly attached, which can really drive up the cost for the service.
What to expect during your Piano Move
You should expect your piano movers to show up on time, and with some additional equipment. The movers should do a brief walk-through so they can devise a game plan, and prepare any hard to maneuver corners or areas. They will review the path they want to take, and clear any items that may pose a problem. Depending on the piano, they may use dollies, or they may remove the legs from the piano before moving it. Once this is complete, the movers will prepare the piano for moving by adding protective padding, and straps. Finally, they will muscle the piano out to the moving truck. Once the piano is in the truck, they will take precautions to strap and secure the piano to prevent any movement during transport. After the delivery of the piano, you can expect some additional paperwork from the piano movers.
