Moving a piano by yourself

We are frequently asked if our clients can move their pianos themselves. You must remember that piano moving can be a complicated and demanding task that includes many pitfalls. Unfortunately, experience has shown that the possibility of unfortunate piano moving is much higher if a client decided to move a musical instrument by themselves. It is the reason why we recommend to use a moving piano service.

Our professional piano movers know exactly how to protect properly both baby grand piano and upright piano. What is more, there is special protective equipment that must be used to protect the piano from scratches, stains and other damages. We will also use a dolly or hand truck, a piano board or skid board to ensure that a piano will be transferred safely.

How to Estimate

There are many variables to take into account to estimate the price for your piano moving:

  • Piano type (Baby grand piano and upright piano)
  • Piano size and weight
  • Timeframe
  • Pickup and delivery location

*Remember! Pickup and delivery location means not only an address but also the floor where the piano is located and must be transferred to.

Thank you captain obvious! But really, plan it at least one month before the moving day. We know it may sound cliché but many people forget to do that. They greatly postpone preparing for moving because it seems that the day of moving is not coming soon. As a result, those poor things have to organize the huge process in a short period which may raise hell. But you are not going to blow it because you are reading this article. Try to plan your moving day beforehand. We understand that sometimes you can’t know for sure the day when you move out of an old house and move into the new one. That's absolutely OK. When you decide to rely on the professional movers from G FORCE, they will advise you to choose an approximate time span when you are going to move.

We are frequently asked: “When is the best time to move?”. Let’s divide this topic by month, week and day.

  • The Best Month to Move
  • Well, you are more likely to save some money and extra-time moving during the period between late October and the end of December and then from January to the end of March. These months are considered to be a low season for moving companies because of the poor weather conditions. The rates are lower compared to the warm months in the period between April and the end of September. On the other hand, it is easier to move in spring and summer when the weather is perfect. You have to decide what is more important for you – a cheaper moving rate or a warm and sunny day.

  • The Best Week to Move
  • Based on our own experience we can state that a mid-week move is your best decision! It is the time when the demand is lower than on weekends. Moreover, prices may be lower in the middle of the week.

  • Best Day to Move
  • As you could understand from above, the best day to move is during the. If you can take a day-off, G FORCE highly recommends you to book moving from Monday to Thursday when the demand is lower.

How long will it take to move to my house? You must remember that every move is completely individual and depends mostly on the type of move, the size of your house, and the belongings that G FORCE will have to move to the new house. Some other minor circumstances can extend the time spent on moving. G FORCE cannot unfortunately impact those points. They are:

  • Traffic jam
  • Road works (they slow down the traffic)
  • Weather conditions
  • The floor (a move on/from a second-floor takes more time)

There are common factors that can affect the time spent on moving as well. They are:

  • Packing or/and Moving
  • It is essential to mention that you can reduce the moving time if you pack all the stuff by yourself. Consequently, G FORCE movers will not spend time packing.

  • Elevator
  • REMEMBER! You must book an elevator in advance if you live in an apartment or move to one. Otherwise, our team will not be able to move your furniture and other important things.

  • Moving type

  • Moving Data
