Moving a Piano in Denver with Wasatch Moving Company

Your piano fills your home with music and it’s a source of simple joy and relaxation. It may be a cherished heirloom that has been passed down in your family. Perhaps you’ve taught your children to play and hope they will one day have it in their own home. Whether you have an upright, console, grand, or baby grand piano, it deserves special attention when it’s time for you to move.

Just 40 years ago, almost one out of every 300 homes in the U.S. had a piano. Today, that number is closer to one in 3,800. That means fewer moving companies have experience and specialized equipment necessary to safely transport your instrument. Ahead of moving day, it’s important to choose dependable piano movers in Denver, Colorado who will give your piano the respect, care, and protection it needs.

The Denver piano movers at Wasatch Moving Company are ready to give you the stress-free moving day you deserve. We’ll safeguard your piano from point A to point B so you can rest easy knowing it won’t need more than a tune-up at your new home.

Top Reasons for Hiring Professional Denver Piano Movers

A piano has up to 10,000 moving parts and weighs anywhere from 300 to 800 pounds or more! If it isn’t done right, moving a delicate yet heavy instrument can be a nightmare. Getting your piano safely out of your home, secured on the truck, and placed in your new home is more than just a logistical challenge: it’s also dangerous to attempt it yourself.

There are many reasons to choose an affordable Denver piano moving company to help you on moving day:

  • Training, experience, and equipment to move a heavy piano past narrow hallways, down stairs, and through doors
  • Proper moving techniques avoid scratches and external to your delicate instrument
  • The right moving strategy protects the delicate internal parts of your piano
  • Your floors, walls, and door frames won’t be damaged during the move
  • Professional piano movers in Denver mean you aren’t attempting serious heavy lifting and a very real risk of getting hurt

Denver piano moving companies save you worry, time, and dangerous physical labor. Trained experts can also save you money by preventing damage to your home and the piano itself!

Piano moving is right up there with tree trimming: they’re both dangerous, difficult tasks. It’s always worth hiring professionals who know what they’re doing and have the right equipment.

Denver Piano Movers Use Specialized Equipment & Training

Don’t underestimate just how much work and care goes into moving a piano. Your instrument isn’t just heavy, large, and delicate: its weight is not evenly distributed. This makes it incredibly challenging for two people to move even an upright piano without the right equipment.

The best Denver area piano movers arrive with special equipment, training, and years of experience to ensure your instrument makes it safely to your new home.
Wasatch Moving Company uses piano skid boards, piano dollies, key stop rails, tie-down straps, moving blankets, hardwood floor sliders, and more for a seamless move. The right technique and equipment will depend on the type of piano you have.

 

 

Grand pianos, for instance, are always moved on their side. After the pedal lyre, lid, and two legs are removed, the piano is carefully placed on a piano skid board. A key stop rail is mounted behind the fallboard on top of the keys before the piano is tilted on its side. This stops the keys from falling on the key frame. The other two legs are removed, the piano is covered with moving blankets, and it’s securely strapped to the skid board.

If you’re moving a large piano that isn’t on the ground floor, it may be hoisted or rigged to move it through an upper story window. This strategy may seem like overkill, but it is sometimes the safest and easiest way to move a large baby grand or grand piano.

While damage sometimes happens when moving a piano, experienced Denver piano movers using the right techniques dramatically reduce this risk. However, be aware that relocating a piano to an area with differences in humidity can cause unpredictable effects. About two weeks after your move, have your piano tuned as changes in humidity and temperature can make it go out of tune.

Denver Cost to Hire Piano Movers

How much does it cost to hire a piano moving company in Denver? Not as much as you may think! Denver piano moving services are typically very affordable, especially when they are added to a household move instead of a standalone service.

Your rate will be based on the distance of your move, accessibility, and the type and model of your piano. Upright and digital pianos usually have lower rates because they weigh less, do not require removing the legs and lid, and are easier to move. If your piano is located on an upper floor, your Denver piano moving company rate may be higher.

The affordable Denver piano movers at Wasatch Moving Company are committed to delivering competitive, transparent rates. We strive to give you the dependable piano moving services you need without breaking your budget.

Don’t underestimate just how easy it is to damage a piano, your walls, and your floors when attempting a DIY move or working with inexperienced movers. Your Denver piano moving cost is nothing compared to the expense of piano repairs or fixing damaged door frames and gouged hardwood!

    I was very impressed on how my movers handled the move and how great they were with my 6 year old son. They went out of their way to make him feel like he was part of their moving team. They also handled some difficult conditions like a champ!!!
