Piano Moving

From Bach to Beethoven, a piano is a versatile complex musical instrument.   It is an extension of many musicians who find themselves engulfed in the beautiful sounds produced with each press of the keys.  Since the invention of the first piano in the early 1700’s, a piano can be considered one of the most valued pieces of a musician, collector, or home owner.  To state that you have a Steinway & Sons, Bosendorfer, Bechstein, or a standard upright, understand that with Element Moving and Storage no piano is too large or too small of a task.

Moving a piano requires planning.  Pianos are extremely heavy and their finishes are very vulnerable to scratches, nicks and dents. Even a small upright piano can weigh more than 350 pounds. Grand pianos can easily weigh over 1,000 pound, and older upright pianos tend to be top heavy, making them unstable and more difficult to move. Understanding the type of piano you have, one must review the different sizes manufactured and whether it is a vertical or horizontal piano.

Different Sizes:

Upright                                                                 Grand

Spinet                                                                  Petite Grand
