Moving a piano, whether into storage or across the city to your new home, is a headache, to say the least. You have to figure out a way to get it from your living room into the new home you’re moving into without breaking or damaging it. That’s why most people call a professional piano moving and storage company.
Unfortunately, not everyone understands how to correctly and efficiently move a piano. Out of this, there have come countless myths about the best way to move and storage something as precious as an expensive piano. Today, we are busting down those myths.
Myth #1. Any Moving Service Can Safely Move Your Piano
Think all you need is a moving company to move your expensive and precious piano? Think again. While a moving company can be specialists in moving furniture, boxes, and the like, they may not necessarily be experts in moving items like pianos.
It takes more than a few strong individuals to move a piano. It takes careful planning, focus, and experience. When you hire someone to do the job, it should be done, after all, correctly.
Myth #2. All You Need is Any Piano Mover
Another myth is that just any piano mover off your favorite search engine search can get the job done correctly. Not so. Not all piano moving companies are created equal.
Luckily there are a few ways to determine if a moving company is right for the job. First, what are their reviews like? What are some consistent themes in those reviews? Do customers state that the company is reliable? Analyze those reviews to see what customers have to report. Then choose a company that has the best consistent reviews.
Key things to look for include their specialty, reliability, experience, and licensing and insurance.
Myth #3. Your Home Must Be Ready For the Piano
More often than not, home owners assume that their new home has to be prepared for their piano before movers can transfer it. However, with the right storage facility, your movers can move the piano long before you move into your new property. Temporary storage, for example, is available through Heroes Moving and Storage business. We offer climate controlled buildings for storing your piano safely and effectively for any amount of time.
The bottom-line is you don’t need to wait to have your piano moved. In fact, it is a good idea to prepare in advance and get your piano moved long before you move the rest of your belongings.
Myth #4. You Don’t Have to Prepare to Move Your Piano
While you don’t have to wait until you’re totally ready to move everything from you home to start preparing, you should do some preparation. What would preparation look like?
It starts by finding the right piano mover, separately from your moving company in most cases. Once you’ve done that, you have to set up an appointment with them and make appropriate arrangements for the move. All of which takes time. Planning helps negate any added stress on moving day regarding your piano.
