Many of us have a piano or grand piano at home. Sooner or later, most owners of this musical instrument have a question: how to transport the piano in such a way as not to damage it. The fact is that a piano is a voluminous musical instrument, the weight of which is quite significant, and you need to transport it very carefully: without breaking or scratching it. In this article Redline Moving will describe in detail several methods for transporting different types of pianos, and provide useful tips for their transportation.
The spinet is the smallest type of piano that was produced until the end of the last century. The spinet has a small height (around 1’2), but with its apparent diminutiveness, it has a weight of about 280 lbs, which does not facilitate the work of leaders at all. In order to transport a spinet, you should do the following steps:
The spinet is the lightest type among keyboard instruments. Its small dimensions (and relatively low weight) make transportation not so difficult.
The ordinary piano is one of the most common musical instruments of this type. The weight of the piano ranges from 400 to 1000 lbs, and the height reaches about 1’5. The center of gravity of the piano, unlike the larger instruments, is located at a height of 1’2. The transportation scheme for a regular piano is not very different from the transportation scheme for a spinet:
A regular piano is a little more difficult to transport than a spinet, but with the right approach, it will not create any special problems, during loading and transportation.
A grand piano is a long musical instrument with a very low center of gravity. The sound of the piano is much more sonorous and rich than that of a spinet and a regular piano.
The grand piano is a much larger and heavier musical instrument. In order to transport it safely not only for the instrument but also for the people who carry out this transportation, it is necessary to adhere to the following principles for transporting the grand piano:
Transporting the piano by yourself is dangerous, and improper handling can result in injury. The best solution, in this case, is to call a professional moving company. They will be able to organize the transportation of a large musical instrument in the shortest possible time without any problems.
