Our main service is piano moving. The piano moving service we provide varies with each customer’s needs. We have the experience and equipment necessary to move your piano safely from one location to another.
There are multiple reasons that people move pianos:
- Moving from one residence to another
- Buying a piano from a store or private individual
- Getting a piano from a friend or relative
- Sending a piano in to a tuner for repair
- Sending to a furniture refinishing place for a fresh new look
- Moving to a different room inside a home
- Getting new flooring such as carpeting or having wood floors refinished
- Moving for events, such as concerts and plays
- Moving into a rented truck or trailer for long distance moves
Whatever the reason, we can help make sure your piano is moved safely. We average 6 to 10 piano moves a day. Let our professional movers help with your piano.
Grand Piano Skids
A small but helpful service we provide is leaving our grand skids at customer’s homes. This is for people that need to leave their grand piano on its side for a time. This need usually arises during a new floor construction or other home remodel when the piano is temporarily removed from the room. Many remodel situations mean everything in the house is being moved to limited areas. For example, pianos are put in hallways, an extra bedroom, dining area or even sometimes in a garage. By having a skid, the grand piano can be stored safely on its side, which takes up less room.
When leaving our skid behind, we ask only to have the second move paid ahead as a down payment. This ensures that we will be back for our equipment, and of course, the return move of the piano.
Another popular service we offer is our climate-controlled piano storage. We have an insulated building that we also heat and/or dehumidify as the seasons change to keep it climate-controlled for the pianos. We store all kinds of uprights and all sizes of grands. We can store for short stays or for longer needs. We understand that some people are in between homes for different lengths of time.
In general, we charge for a move to and from the storage facility. Prices vary depending on piano style and moving areas. We charge monthly fees for the storage. Call 763-784-8123 for an individual estimate for piano storage as each customer’s needs are different.
Everything comes to an end sometime. This also includes pianos. Sometimes even they get past their prime. When a piano is no longer in good condition on the outside and/or the inside no longer works well, some people spend the money for reconditioning. The inside can be fixed by a piano technician, and the outside can be renewed by a furniture refinisher. We provide some recommendations for piano restorations.
When you find the piano is not worth spending money on to restore, then it is ready for disposal. That is where we can help. Of course a piano doesn’t fit in a garbage can, so we take it away and send it to piano heaven…also known as the local landfill.
