When you need to move your piano, kindly trust Sem’s Moving and Storage, because they are the capable professionals.
Most of our customers are blown away at just how proficient, masterful and competent our team is. We are very selective when it comes to hiring our staff, and we only go for people with the expertise and experience. These people then go through a couple of weeks of training and testing to make sure that they are the best. They then go ahead to move your piano without damage, professionally, and on time.
Preparing your piano for shipment
Being prepared ahead of time not only eases the job of moving your piano, but it can also save a lot of cash and trouble for when the relocation time comes. Having a piano is considered an investment, and therefore caution should be taken when moving it.
Hire professional movers, and go especially for white glove moving companies. Pianos are quite fragile and moving them by yourself can cause some harm to your piano, the house or to even yourself. Go for professional piano movers because they have the experience to prevent all that from happening.
If for any reason you decide to relocate your piano yourself, you should make sure you put some precautions in place. First of all, take your time and make sure you get lots of help, because no matter the size, pianos can be pretty heavy and cumbersome. If you decide to go with a mover, you should still make sure that the organ is ready to be moved before they get there.
Why you need a professional piano mover
“The regret of bad quality service remains, even long after the joy of low price is forgotten.”
A fun fact is that a spinet piano measures between 300-500 pounds, while a grand piano weighs between 500-1300 pounds.
Pianos are very heavy, even though they are firmly made. However, they are also complicated and can easily get damaged. A standard piano has 200 strings that are pulled very tight across a metal bridge with the compounded tension of 40,000 pounds.
The job of moving a piano, therefore, does not just consider the weight of the piano, but it also has to cater for the shape, fragility of the outer cabinet and the inner workings of the piano. All this needs one to have the proper equipment and knowledge of the unique system that is the piano.
Do not just go for any professional moving company to handle your piano. You have to make sure that the company you decide to go with has personnel that understands the trouble that comes with moving such a delicate item.
Our capable team of expert movers can take in any piano, regardless of size, because they have the experience of moving them in the past. You cannot make piano relocation something that you can experience all by yourself.
There are a couple of things that you can do to make sure your piano is moved cautiously and that it arrives at its destination in one piece. These include:
- Covering the piano while moving it to the truck and also making sure it remains covered the whole way.
- Using furniture dollies that will be able to handle the weight of the piano.
- The keyboard should be protected and then covered to avoid damaging the keys.
- Vigorous planning to ensure that all the details are known by the movers such as where the piano is going, and how you want it placed.

We have been in this business for more than a decade, which is why we have enough experience to comprehend that moving musical instruments, such as pianos, can be very tasking. Our team knows how to properly take care of, pack, move around with and load such heavy and fragile items. We provide transport services for both upright and grand pianos.
We always provide:
- Precision and protection: we make sure all the parts are well taken care of.
- Moving the piano to your desired destination and making sure it is at the level and placed where you want it to be.
Since there are a couple of things that could hinder a smooth move such as narrow doorways, corners, and staircases, as a rule, we make sure the piano is carefully packed. Cardboard, blankets, and shrink-wrap are what we use to make sure that the piano does not get scratches or any other serious damage.
Extra caution is also taken by the well-skilled team to ensure complete safe transportation, by using special piano boards to give it extra stability. The piano is then fastened on the board through the use of completely strong moving-straps.
At Sem’s Moving and Storage, we operate with a manageable pricing policy. We take our time to understand every client because people have different expectations and needs. We hope to make every experience tailor-made to the person’s individualized wants. Our team makes sure that your piano is well taken care of both during moving and after, paying attention to all the details such as the size of the house if there are elevators or staircases, size of the doors and also how to make sure the piano is completely protected from any damage.
We would like to hear from you, so please contact Sem’s Moving and Storage, and we will talk about your individual needs.
Sometimes during transportation, some parts of the piano can get damaged, resulting in poor sound. Even though some experts can fix this, Sem’s Moving and Storage understands that this can be quite hectic and we take great care to make sure the instrument is not damaged, covering it carefully and completely, to protect it.
The little to no price of making sure the piano is moved and stored properly is preferred to the bigger cost of haphazard movement or storage. The companies that handle the move, often have technicians who are qualified in climate control and can restore the piano if a mistake has been made.
These technicians have top notch equipment which they use to make and replace soundboards to give you good sound. After you have made sure your piano has been stored properly with piano storage professionals, these technicians can also have it “custom voiced” to fit its new home.
Sem’s Moving and Storage can also just move your piano from one room to the other, or even just within the same room, without affecting the sound quality. We have experts who can give you important information on how to protect your investment for a long time.
