A Professional Piano Mover NYC and Region Relies On – Great Service and Price
There have been a lot of jokes and cartoons over the years about New York piano movers, usually depicting a piano in a sling up on a crane and then some horrific thing happening to whatever is below the piano, and then the piano. While they may bring a wry smile to your face, it is not the way you want your piano moved or handled when you hire professional piano movers New York area based. You need to know your piano, whether a concert grand or a family upright is in good hands and is being handled safely, assuring your piano arrives at its final destination intact.
Piano moving NJ and elsewhere is not a job for the normal person. Lots of people try to move their own instrument, but often it ends up with broken legs, the house with scared and gouged flooring and walls or splintered door frames, or worse, injured helpers. There is no such thing as a lightweight piano, as even the modern digital ones weigh several hundred pounds. A traditional piano ranges from 400 – 1,500 pounds, depending on the type and construction materials. Pianos are compact, dense, dead weight, and since they are always in climate control and subjected to winter heat and summer air conditioning, as well as the outside climate that affects the inside air, the hardwoods that make up most piano bodies tends to dry. That drying means pianos tend to become brittle and the wood cracks easily, especially with the vast amounts of stress and pressure on various joints, curves, fastener locations, and other parts under tension. Pianos have a brass or cast iron soundboard in them, with steel strings under tremendous tension. It takes little to snap a string, break a soundboard loose, or crack one, causing damage that may or may not permanently harm your instrument.

What All Needs Moved by Piano Movers NJ Trusts?
Being in the vibrant, constantly on the move NYC – NJ area, there is a really large variety of instruments that need moved from one place to another. While Piano Movers New Jersey has specialized in pianos of all shapes, sizes, ages, and weights, we also move other fine musical equipment. We regularly handle grand pianos, from baby and medium grands to medium, regular grands, and even massive concert grands, spinets, uprights, and parlor grand pianos. Parlor grands, in particular, set us apart from the competition. Most parlor grands are very compact and nearly all are fine antiques. Many times these instruments are historical, very ornate, inlaid or have marquetry work, and often are made from rosewood, ebony, or rare varieties of mahogany. Having lived for decades, sometimes centuries, in heating and cooling and damp and dry, the wood often has gotten brittle and fragile, but still is exceedingly heavy. Most piano moving companies will not touch a parlor grand due to the insurance issues and frankly, they just do not want to do the work necessary to protect the instrument properly, taking the time to lift and love them correctly, nor deal with the extreme weight. We know how to do it, and we are experts at it. If you happen to be the fortunate owner of one of these exquisite pieces of musical history, call us and we will give you a fair quote for moving the piano
Among the other fascinating things we have been known to move are harpsichords, melodeons, all varieties of organs including pipe organs (once disassembled, they require specialists in pipe organ work), player pianos (another instrument few piano moving NYC companies will move due to weight, an upright often weighing in close to a ton!), and a number of different large music boxes and orphions, symphoniums, rockolas, jukeboxes, and other delicate, easy to damage musical equipment. We have also been known to help move band equipment in a pinch as well as other special musical instrumentation. We are fully licensed and insured, have all the right equipment and packing material, and we respect each instrument and know how to correctly handle it for moving and storage.
