Piano Removals – Are You Thinking Of Moving Your Piano Yourself?
There are professional companies that provide piano removals, yet you may be considering removing your piano yourself in order to save money. In fact, this could end up costing you a lot more money in the long run if you damage your piano. Read on to discover the reasons why it is advisable to hire a professional company to handle this for you.
Firstly, if you do not know how to remove the piano properly, you could end up causing a lot of damage. Not only could you end up seriously hurting yourself, but you could cause extensive damage to the piano and your property. There is a lot to be considered when removing a piano to ensure it does not get destroyed; you can’t simply pick it up and go. Pianos are heavier than most people realise as well, as the average console or spinet weights anything from 300 to 500 pounds.
However, it is not only the weight of the piano you need to consider, as inertia and balance are further issues. The uneven distribution of parts, the fragility of the inner mechanics and the outer cabinet, and the asymmetric shape, all play a significant role when moving a piano. Professional piano removers will have extensive knowledge of this, ensuring they can move your piano without causing damage.
So, how do you find professional piano removers? When looking for pianos for sale, you should enquire as to whether they provide this service. Most reputable companies will, making your life a lot easier.
