At Piano Movers Extraordinaire we store all kinds of uprights and all sizes of grands. We can store for short stays or for longer periods.

It is important to protect pianos from scratches, impact damage, heat and extreme cold. Our piano storage experts will wrap the piano in quilted furniture pads to help avoid any scratches. And, we will never use plastic wrap, rope or string as this can cause damage.

Don’t forget to empty, polish and securely close the piano bench. Place any sheet music, accessories and other piano-related items into a storage box so that you can find them later.
