No, we aren’t talking about that tiny casio model that you got for your 6th birthday. Real gigantic pianos that could crush you to dust if tumbled over. There’s a very good reason why services that provide piano removals are there. That’s what this is all about.
Make no mistake, if you have a plan for moving your piano, don’t ever make the mistake of being too hasty about it as it is supermassive in every sense of the word and even if you call yourself strong (or have lots of strong friends for that matter), the bottom line remains that it’s a very bad idea. As simple as that.
Having said that, here are a list of dangers and warnings. Please do not say you weren’t warned! :-
A DIY Approach is no good when you haven’t a clue as to what exactly to do: You might think that you need to start from the very bottom, but what if that is not the case? Also unless you happen to be the reincarnation of the Hulk, don’t even remotely think that you can do it yourself. Not happening in a million years.
Finally, just employing a professional service that really knows how to get the job done is much better than you doing it yourself.
- You might break the piano: Yes that is a very real possibility from failing around to just losing control all together. Lack of technical skill while being clueless is never a good combination.
- An expensive investment is better than having a broken piano and an injury to boot: Yes, this point cannot be stressed enough. Not only one, but then you would have two disasters on your hands. Not exactly anyones idea of a good outcome. Even if it happens to be a tad hard on your wallet, go for it and hire the professional service.
