Moving a Piano With Mentors Moving

A piano is a once in a lifetime-buy that people cherish for many years. This instrument is one that is sturdy and can be passed down through generations, but they’re also fragile if you don’t take care of them well. A piano is an investment because they aren’t cheap. Though they produce amazing sound and music, they’re also sensitive. Just one wrong move can mess up the tuning and ruin a good piano. This creates a lot of stress for the musician when they know they need to transfer it to a new home. When relocating a piano, it’s important to hire the right company for the job. At Mentors Moving, we’re an experienced Phoenix, Bakersfield, San Luis Obispo, and Santa Rosa piano moving company with years of experience.

There are over 30,000 pianos made per year in the United States, but that doesn’t mean you want to go out and buy a new one! No matter the type of piano you’re relocating, whether that’s upright or spinet, baby grand, grand, or digital, we’re the experienced piano movers to call.

Hiring Professional Piano Movers - Top Reasons

Trying to DIY a piano move isn’t something you should do. It’s an incredibly dangerous thing to relocate by yourself. Pianos are very heavy, and transferring them to a truck can cause a lot of damage to the instrument. Not to mention, they can cause injury to you and the others trying to lift it. Not only do people throw out their backs, but others get pinned behind or crushed by it. Without hiring the best Bakersfield, San Luis Obispo, Santa Rosa, or Phoenix piano moving company, you could end up with a hospital bill and a damaged instrument.

It’s important to hire someone to help transfer the piano over because you want it in the best possible condition. Instruments are difficult to handle because you don’t want to mess up the tuning. This requires muscle and teamwork from professional piano moving companies that are specially trained in this. Our team members get hours of training so that they know how to properly transfer a piano from the old residence to the truck, to the new residence without any issues. We provide this service at all of our locations, including Bakersfield, San Luis Obispo, Santa Rosa, and Phoenix.

Hiring reliable Phoenix, Bakersfield, Santa Rosa, or San Luis Obispo piano movers also saves you time. It’s a long process to properly transfer a piano from one residence to another. We have the training needed so that your piano, no matter the type, can be relocated efficiently. This means you can get back to playing immediately!

Phoenix, San Luis Obispo, Bakersfield, And Santa Rosa Piano Movers Require Specialized Equipment & Training

Relocating a piano is no easy task. At Mentors Moving, we’ve spent years training our special teams of experienced Phoenix, San Luis Obispo, Bakersville, and Santa Rosa piano movers. They know how to disassemble the piano, carefully transfer it to the truck using special equipment, keep it stable during the transfer, taking it into the new residence, and reassembling it so that it’s ready to be played. This can’t be done by just anyone, and we use a team specifically for moving these instruments.

Many people may think they can transfer the piano by themselves, but there’s simply too much equipment needed to make this a realistic or viable option. A piano dolly is needed to keep it in the best condition while transferring it to the truck. This is used for both baby grand, grand, and upright pianos. Sometimes, a furniture dolly is also used in the process. This is a dolly with carpeting on the top so the piano will get scratched. Some other equipment needed are tie-down straps, shrinkwrap, and moving blankets. Not to mention, you’ll also need a large truck that the piano will fit into. By the time you rent that, you might as well have used our piano movers who know what they’re doing. When pianos aren’t properly stored or tied down when in the truck, they can slam into the sides of the truck causing severe damage.

Phoenix, Santa Rosa, San Luis Obispo, and Bakersfield Piano Moving Cost

The number one reason people try to relocate a piano on their own is because of the cost. Pianos are expensive pieces of equipment, so to then tack on an additional expense can be a bit overwhelming for some. However, it’s because the instrument is so expensive that you should pay for a top-rated Phoenix, Santa Rosa, San Luis Obispo, and Bakersfield piano moving company to help you. A hospital bill for dropping a piano is much more expensive, and buying a brand new instrument because you’ve broken the original while moving would be even more devastating.

We recommend checking with some of the award-winning piano movers in the area for a free quote. Because the type of piano and difficulty of the transfer goes into our free estimate, we’ll need to speak to you on the phone or through email to get a better idea before giving you a free quote. Our Phoenix, Santa Rosa, Bakersfield, and San Luis Obispo piano moving company bases our free quote on:

  • The difficulty of the transfer (whether there are stairs or steep climbs)
  • The type of piano that you have
  • How far the new property is from the old
  • The number of employees needed to make the transfer
  • The amount of prep work needing to be done

Choosing The Best Piano Mover

When it comes to choosing between the best piano moving companies, there are a few things you should look for. We always recommend making sure the company is licensed and insured, skilled in piano relocations, has superior customer service, and good reviews. You should read their reviews in depth to know whether people were happy with the service or not. It’s also important to look at how many jobs they do a year and whether they have a dedicated specialist team for pianos.

At Mentors Moving, we have an experienced team of Phoenix, Santa Rosa, Bakersfield, and San Luis Obispo piano movers ready to help you. We provide a 160-hour training program for our employees, and we serve over 1,200 customers each year. We have a dedicated team of 30+ employees that are strong, trustworthy, and efficient. Our customer service is some of the best in the business, and we have a 5-star rating with over 130 reviews.
