Piano Moving in NYC

 

Moving is never an easy thing for any family to do. There are always so much more than just throwing your belongings into boxes and renting a truck. This becomes especially true as we begin to collect heavy, expensive and often antique items. With the rise of so many DIY shows and home improvement stores promoting saving money by doing it yourself, it is easy for people to believe they will save money by not hiring professionals.

Sadly this couldn’t be further from the truth. Moving heavy objects requires a lot more than a ‘can-do’ attitude. When dealing with items which are heavy and delicate like a piano, special tools and skills are needed. Piano movers in New York City will tell you there is a lot more to it than just getting the piano from Point A to Point B!

What is Involved?
At first glance, the thing people see is that a piano is a big, heavy object. While this is very true, it is not the most important aspect. There are many things in your home which must be moved which are heavy. The difference is, you can man-handle a large wooden dresser with some degree of roughness and have it come through fine.

Pianos, on the other hand, are finely tuned instruments and tuning them again is just what you’re going to have to pay for if they are moved, transported or stored improperly. The heavy wooden exterior may hide the delicate strings and hammers but they can and will be effected negatively if moved roughly. Then there are exposed items like the foot-pedals which can easily be damaged especially when being moved through constricted places like doorways.

Hidden Costs
Piano movers in New York City will tell you there are lots of costs the DIY types always run afoul of. In fact the savings one gets from hiring professionals comes from the fact you don’t end up paying for a lot of items you might only use once.

As with many types of large appliances, pianos have to be moved out of the home carefully threading hallways and doors. Depending on the building, a piano above the ground floor will have to be hoisted down because it won’t fit in the elevator. Then there is the proper packaging material to protect it during all this movement along with transport. All of these costs are often missed when the homeowner thinks to save a buck by moving their own stuff.

What makes things worse is that even up-right pianos are not uniform in shape shape. Which makes properly packaging them more difficult. Then there is knowing where exactly on the piano it is designed to take more pressure. Professionals deal with things like this on a daily basis whereas the homeowner might never do more than shift their piano around the room a bit. Not knowing the proper place your piano can or cannot take lifting pressure means the difference between a damaged or ruined piano.

Risk Transfer
Successful companies know the best way to do business is to transfer risk of an operation to someone else. In the homeowners case, using piano movers in New York City is a way to not only transfer the risk (by having the work insured) it is the best way to minimize risk due to professionally trained movers doing the job with the right tools.

It’s always best to remember what you are doing. Are you saving money or are you moving your furniture safely? At the end of the day your furniture has to be moved and doing it yourself is not the best way to ensure it is done safely. Furthermore, if your piano is damaged in transit by the movers, it is insured. If you yourself damage or ruin your piano moving it, you’re out the costs of repairing or replacing it. In trying to save money, you end up spending lots more than you had hoped to save.
