What does this all mean? That the piano is an unwieldy, bulky item that is top-heavy and tough to move.
As longtime piano movers, the professionals at Big Boy Moving and Storage consider the best approach, the route and the environment where the piano is being moved from and to. This includes:
• Being mindful that because it is top-heavy, a piano can easily tip over.
• Checking and cleaning the casters, if needed, to make sure the instrument can be moved easily.
• Raising a piano properly with all of the basic lifting techniques such as using the legs to hoist the heavy object.
• Securing parts in the instrument where necessary. (Although in most cases, nothing needs to be secured on the inside of a piano.)
• Protecting the delicate exterior parts including the pedals and legs.
• Being watchful of the floor to avoid any potential gouging.
• Clearing all obstacles out of the way.
• Avoiding unnecessary strain on the instrument by minimizing the degree of any lifting.

The objective of a successful piano move is to get the piano where it needs to go without damaging the instrument in any way and so that the movers do not get hurt in the process.
Tip: If possible, you might think about moving a piano around the time it needs to be tuned again. This is because in most cases, even after a short move, the piano may need to be tuned. It’s advisable to allow the piano to sit for about a month, adjusting to its new environment, before tuning it
