The Twin Cities area is no stranger to the piano. From piano bars to churches to concert halls and everything in between, you’re sure to find a piano close by. Whether you’re a professional musician, a music teacher or simply a piano owner or enthusiast, you may find yourself placing your piano in storage for a multitude of reasons. And, when you do, you want to make sure you do everything you can to keep your your prized instrument safe. As experts in piano moving and piano storage for St Paul and the entire Twin Cities area we’d like to discuss a few essential points to keep in mind before you place your piano in storage.
First of all, it is essential to only entrust your piano to those well-versed in pianos and their needs. At Piano Movers Extraordinaire, we know pianos and how to properly move and store them. Any old storage company won’t know the proper way to load, unload and store a piano and can even cause damage to this deceivingly delicate instrument.
Make sure your storage company is able to accommodate your piano’s size and length of time it needs to be stored. 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. We understand that some people are in between homes for different lengths of time, so may just need somewhere to keep their piano while in transition. Whatever the reason, we can store your piano safely and securely for as little or as long as needed.
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.
The professionals at Piano Movers Extraordinaire have all of the necessary equipment to help move and store your piano properly. Our professional piano movers will make sure your piano arrives safely and returns to you in the same condition.
