Johnson & Daly Moving and Storage performs dozens of piano moves every year, including upright pianos, baby grand pianos, parlor grand pianos, and concert grand pianos. We also move organs and all other types of pianos. Pianos are extremely heavy and can be difficult to move up and down flights of stairs, and around tight corners. Also, final placement of a piano can be tricky, depending on where the piano will be once the move is complete.
Good question! We use a specialized mechanical dolly called a Domino to move heavy and fragile items for our customers. It allows us to securely and carefully navigate uneven terrain, steps, corners, and other questionable terrain. This video demonstrates the Domino's agility in a variety of environments:
The most important thing Johnson & Daly wants you to know is that we understand that pianos are expensive, delicate, and can have unmeasurable sentimental value. We treat each piano move with the utmost care and respect, to ensure that the piano and your property remain fully protected at all times.
It is also important that you clear a path before we arrive. Whether we are moving a piano into it's new home, or moving it in or out as part of a local or long distance move, having a clear path through rooms and hallways for our specialized piano board and 4-wheel dollys will help your piano move proceed more quickly and efficiently.
If you have a special situation, are unsure of the best way to move your piano, or have any other questions about moving a piano, please contact Johnson & Daly for assistance. With almost four decades of professional moving experience, we can handle your unique piano move.
