Hello and thanks for visiting!

While I cannot give you an exact price on moving your piano, since pricing varies based on many different factors, I can point you in the right direction to give you a better idea of what your move will cost.

Your baby grand piano was most likely quite an investment, which means you will want to be sure that it be transported with the utmost care. The moving process to pack and ship a grand piano will involve the movers removing the lid of the piano and carefully packaging it with cardboard, pads, and moving blankets. Next, the lyre will be removed and packaged. The following step is to put the piano on its side on top of a skid board, which is a long piece of wood covered in carpet that allows the piano to be moved easily.

Because this process is strategic and lengthy, there are moving companies that specialize in packing and transporting items like your piano. You can fill out simple free quote form and start comparing piano movers in your area. Generally, these companies charge either by the hour (if you were moving locally), or by the type of piano and distance of the move. A long distance piano move can range in price from $700 to $2,000.

Once you have received estimates from various companies, you will be better equipped in making a decision on which one to hire.

Thank you again for visiting, and best wishes on your upcoming move!
