Fayetteville Piano Moving

Protecting your family heirlooms and investments.

Your piano is a cornerstone of your home, serving as entertainment, a statement piece, and in many cases, a reminder of your loved ones. When you need to move a piano to a new home or a different room within your home, you don’t want to risk damaging it by going DIY. 

Legacy Transit Lines offers professional Fayetteville piano moving services, no matter how long or short the distance. We work with upright, baby grand, and grand pianos, ensuring we can meet your needs.


Why Piano Moving Is for the Professionals

The Load Is too Great

The heavier the load, the more likely it is that those moving it will injure themselves. However, professional movers are trained in the right techniques for moving large, heavy, awkward items, such as pianos. Ultimately, it’s better to outsource the task and save your back.

Specialty Tools Are Needed

In most cases, special straps and dollies are required for moving pianos and other similar items. These are an investment in and of themselves and not something you want to purchase just to move a piano once or twice.

Packaging Is Essential

If you are moving a piano to a new location, the right packaging ensures it isn’t damaged in transport. Professionals know how to protect everything from the body to the feet, making it easy to get your piano to your new home safely.

Navigation Is Difficult

If your piano has to get through a narrow hall or get around some tight turns, you are going to struggle moving it yourself and likely damage something—or someone—in the process. Professionals understand how to position your piano to get it through narrow hallways and hairpin turns.

Pianos Are Investments

The last thing you want to do is risk damaging it and needing to replace it. And that is if it even is replaceable; if your piano is one-of-a-kind or a family heirloom, you aren’t just facing a financial loss, but the loss of something precious to you.

What to Expect From a Piano Moving Service

The first step your movers will take is to measure the new space where the piano will go, as well as the doorways, stairways, and hallways they will need to navigate to get it there. They will also evaluate the various obstacles in their way and determine how they can eliminate or reduce them. 

Depending on the type of piano you have, it may need to be partially disassembled to move. Your movers will handle this, as well as wrapping and protecting the instrument so it is ready for safe transport. 

Once they understand the limits of the spaces they are working with, your piano movers will gather the equipment they need to get your piano secured for the move and to transport it through your home and on the truck.

With the piano on the dollies and well protected, the movers need to ensure the paths they take are clear. This might mean moving things like plants and vases as well as pulling rugs away from where they need to walk.

Once the piano is at its new location, your movers will unpack and reassemble it. Keep in mind that you will need to schedule a tuning as things will be altered during the moving process.
