Why You Should Enlist Professional Help To Move Your Piano

Many families love having a piano in their home for parents and children to make lovely music with. When settled in your home, a piano doesn’t typically require much maintenance. However, anyone who’s ever moved home with a large instrument knows that things can get very complicated when it comes to transporting a piano safely.

The number one priority when moving a piano is avoiding injury to people, the second priority is avoiding injury to the instrument, and the third is avoiding injury to your home. Since moving a piano can be a big task (that will quickly grow more complicated!) and involves such an expensive item, it’s typically recommended that you enlist the services of a professional moving company. Professional movers have the experience, expertise, and equipment required to move any kind of piano quickly, safely, and efficiently.


Professional piano movers have experience with grand pianos, baby grand pianos, upright pianos, antique pianos, console pianos, and more. They’ve seen it all, so you can be confident that your instrument will be handled efficiently and safely.

Many states also have rules and regulations for transporting pianos due to the instrument’s large weight. A high-quality moving company will be aware of these and can advise you as necessary.


With a professional moving company that’s skilled in piano transport like Dixie Moving and Storage, you can save yourself a whole lot of stress whenever your beautiful (and expensive) instrument has to go down stairs or around corners.
