Piano removals in Sydney can be tricky, and overall quite complicated. Generally, your piano will be one of the larger, heavier and more valuable items that you’ll be looking to move. Therefore, it’s understandable that you want everything to go smoothly. To help you out, we’ve compiled 5 things that will make your piano moving experience as painless and effortless as possible.

(1) Know your piano (and where it’s going)

This tip is pretty self-explanatory. Before moving, you should know your piano, its dimensions, and where it’s going down to a key. With an item as large, and as fragile as a piano knowing these factors is of vital importance. You should also take into consideration whether you want the piano to be a visual centre-piece, or tucked away into a side room in its new home. This is because as the item is so large, it will have an impact on the style of the new place. Knowing the dimensions will only help in knowing whether or not it can be placed where you want it. If you don’t have the time to learn the measurements of the piano and the room you want it to go in, however, remember that Holloway Removals can give you as much, or as little assistance as you need.

(2) Organise exactly how much assistance is required

Following on from the point above, by calling the removal company(02 8503 4444) or getting in touch online, you can sort out exactly how much assistance you’ll need in moving your piano. Consider how many men required, whether they’ll need to do any measurements or wrapping beforehand, and exactly what you’ll require from the removal company on the day of the move. This way you’ll get the most reliable quote before they turn up.

(3) Protective measures

If you’ve decided to protect and package your piano yourself, there a few things you should take into consideration. The piano lid should be closed and preferably locked if possible, but if not, you should aim to secure it tightly. This is to protect the keys within and to make sure they don’t sustain any damage. Secondly, your piano should have some form of protective padding around the body to protect it from scratches, scuffs or any other marks that may occur during the move.

(4) Tune it

You may find that after the move your piano is out of tune, but don’t worry, this is expected. It is recommended, though, that you wait a month before attempting to re-tune it. This is because the instrument needs time to adjust to the new environment.

Piano’s are a heavy and cumbersome instrument to move, especially seeing as they are so fragile. Whether you want to tackle parts of the move alone, and then solicit the help of professionals in others, is up to you. The most important thing to remember though, through the entire process, is to ensure that your piano is safe. With Holloway Removals in Sydney, this won’t be a problem, as you have the peace of mind of knowing that you have full in-transit insurance for all removal services.
