Hi, thanks for visiting! Your predicament is a fairly common one, but nonetheless one that presents a lot of challenges. Pianos are heavy and cumbersome items to move, even if you have multiple people assisting you, and sometimes you need professionals who are well-practiced in the art of moving such large, difficult items. 
Hiring moving labor 

Any local moving company will be able to assist you in moving the piano, and since you'll only be moving the furniture from one spot to another on the same floor and will not require a truck, you'll only need moving labor. The whole process should only take an hour or two and you'll pay the movers by the hour. Typically, most local moving companies will charge you between $80-$120 per hour for moving labor.

Of course, if you choose to hire a moving company to assist you, they'll bring along all of the necessary items and moving supplies, such as blankets, shrink wrap and dollies. These items will be essential to moving your piano and sofa, and they will play a big role in the move. Without them, you can risk damaging your items, or even your home. Blankets and wrap will protect both your piano and sofa, and it will also protect your walls and floors during the move, especially if you have hardwood flooring, which can be easily damaged by moving an item as big and heavy as a piano.
Preparing your piano for the move 

If your piano is very expensive, you may also want to consider purchasing some moving insurance for it for the day you are planning on moving it, that way it is covered in the event that something happens to it during the move.

Preparing your piano for the move is also an important part of the process, and you want to make sure that you've wrapped it properly to avoid the piano being damaged during the move.
