How to organize a safe move for your instruments


Moving to another home is no easy task. This is because you have a lot of things to think about. The most important task you have to think about is packing. Packing can get very tricky if you plan to move some instruments. If you do not take your time to properly organize a safe move for your instruments you will have a bad time. If your precious musical instruments break you will have to pay a fortune for replacements or repairs. If you stay organized and start your preparations you have nothing to worry about.

Organize a safe move for your instruments while you move a piano

Pianos are the hardest of all instruments to move. They are big and heavy and fragile. If you make one little mistake you might break your piano and even hurt yourself. If you break the piano you will waste a lot of money on repairs. This is why you need to stay focused and take your time while you organize a safe move for your instruments. First, you need to lock the keyboard, afterward, you need to remove any removable parts. Once you do that you need to apply a lot of cushioning materials on the piano. You can use packing wraps while you do this. You will also need some help to carry the piano, piano movers Brooklyn are the best option for this. They can help you safely move your piano to your new home or storage.

Moving string instruments

Moving string instruments is a bit simpler than moving a piano. This does not mean you can relax while you pack your string instruments. One bump while in transit can ruin your guitar. This is why you need a lot of cushioning materials while you move your string instruments. If you do not have enough of these packing supplies your instrument will break. It is also very important to loosen the string s a little bit. This will ensure the strings do not break while you move.

Moving your drums

Drums are another tricky type of instrument to move. First, you need to make sure you get a box that is a bit bigger than your drums. This way you will have enough space for cushioning. You do not want your drums to break while in transit. Make sure you pack the legs and spurs into a separate box. If you have a tough time while you do this you should hire cheap movers NYC. You do not have to spend too much money to get professional help.

Packing is one of the most stressful parts of moving. This is especially true if you plan to organize a safe move for your instruments. These fragile items are not cheap. Damage to these will hurt you emotionally and financially. This is why you need to take your time and carefully prepare for the relocation.

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
