Pianos are magnificent beasts. Not only do they hold great sentimental value and musical value, they are expensive and delicate, large, awkward and extremely heavy. As a result, there are serious risks involved with their removal. These include causing damage to your home, serious damage to your health and damage to the piano itself. Moving a piano is clearly no easy task.
That’s why you need to carefully consider how you will transport your piano to its new home safely. Enfield Removals offer a professional piano removal service that will eliminate stress or danger from the removal process.
Prior to removal, you’ll need to carefully prepare your piano to prevent damage to this cherished item. We recommend you use the following steps to ensure both your piano and home are protected.
1. Hire a professional
You want to be sure that your beloved piano is in safe hands. That’s why the majority of piano owners choose a reliable, experienced firm such as Enfield Removals to transport their piano to its new home. Never attempt to move a piano alone. It’s simply too risky.
2. Protect the keyboard
The keys of a piano are very vulnerable to damage yet they are easy to protect. Simply close and seal the keyboard lid. Please don’t use tape to do this job as it damages the finish of your piano.
3. Remove any detachable parts
Don’t run the risk of damaging your house or losing an important piece of your piano. Remove any detachable parts such as pedals or music stands and keep them somewhere safe and easy to find.
4. Protect the body of your piano
Next you need to wrap the body of your piano to protect it from scratches and other damage. Professional moving pads are soft yet robust and are designed specifically for this job. If none are available, choose something similar like blankets or other padding. Next seal this layer with tape and shrink-wrap to ensure that all of the layers remain in place.
5. Think about the escape route.
How do you intend to remove the piano? Is there an easy and clear path from the piano’s current location to the front door? Take these things into consideration and clear items out of the way to ensure a simple, hazard free exit.
It’s simple to move your much-loved piano to it’s new home. Prepare your piano for removal with great care and hire Enfield Piano Removals to do all of the back-straining work so you don’t have to.
