Mass Bay Movers' response to the Coronavirus View Here

Your piano fills your home with beautiful music and it’s a cherished heirloom you’re probably hoping to pass on to loved ones someday. Maybe it’s even been in your family for many years and brings back fond memories of childhood. No matter what type of piano you own, whether it’s a small spinet piano, console piano, grand piano, or baby grand piano, we understand the level of trust you place in Boston piano movers to ensure it makes it to its new home unharmed.

Did you know that the average piano has more than 12,000 components, 10,000 of which are moving parts? That’s a lot of opportunity for damage to delicate components when a piano isn’t moved properly! At Mass Bay Movers, we understand how crucial it is to choose a Boston piano moving company you can trust. That’s why our trained piano movers in Boston use specialized equipment and training to protect your delicate instrument from beginning to end. With our skilled movers, you don’t need to experience the heartache or hefty cost of piano repair after your move or deal with damage to your floors and walls.

Top Reasons to Hire Professional Boston Piano Movers

Whether you’re moving near or far, one thing is sure: relocating can be stressful and time-consuming without the right help! Hiring professional movers can make your relocation an efficient and stress-free process with the right training, equipment, and know-how to avoid common issues associated with a DIY move. While movers can be helpful with any type of move, their expertise really shines when it comes to moving delicate instruments. Boston piano movers ensure your delicate instrument makes it safely to your new home without damaging the exterior or the intricate working parts.

There are many challenges that come with moving a piano. It isn’t just heavy; it’s also fragile with delicate internal components. In fact, most pianos have over 10,000 moving parts! To avoid the need for tuning and repairs, it must be moved carefully and kept stable without being bumped or turned the wrong way. Attempting to move a piano yourself also poses the risk of injury. A piano can top 800 pounds — that’s as much as a full-grown bison! Improper handling can lead to injury to yourself, your children, or your pets. A top-rated Boston piano moving company ensures your move goes off without a hitch and your beautiful instrument looks and sounds as beautiful as always in your new home.

Specialized Training & Equipment Boston Piano Movers Use

One of the most important benefits of hiring the best Boston piano moving company? An experienced crew of movers will arrive with the specialized equipment and training necessary to avoid damage to your piano or home. Trained movers know which type of equipment to use depending on the style of your piano and access concerns like stairs and narrow hallways.

Top Boston moving companies offer a great deal of experience and specialized tools go into efficiently and safely moving a piano. Tie-down straps, moving blankets, and shrinkwrap are used to prep the piano to prevent external damage. For upright pianos, a piano dolly is used. Dollies allow the movers to keep the piano upright as it’s navigated through doorways, down stairs, and onto a truck. Special equipment called a piano board is used to move a grand piano which allows for additional padding and strapping. Piano skid boards allow the piano to be safely tilted or tipped on end to move the instrument around corners. For baby grand and grand pianos, the legs will be removed during the move so the piano can be secured to the board.

Don’t trust your cherished piano to Boston piano movers who lack the experience and equipment needed for a safe move. Unfortunately, you may see movers offering piano moving even when it’s outside their area of expertise. Don’t be afraid to ask a piano moving company in Boston what precautions they take and the type of equipment they use to ensure your instrument isn’t damaged in the move!

Boston Piano Moving Cost

Want to save yourself the backache and likely damage that can result from a DIY piano move? Your next concern is probably the Boston cost to hire piano movers.

When you request a Boston piano movers quote, you will need to give plenty of information about the type of piano, how far it needs to be moved, and access to the piano. For example, is it located on the ground floor or a second story? Does it need to be hoisted or moved down narrow stairs or is there service elevator access? The type of piano and access will help Boston piano moving companies determine how many movers will be needed to give you an accurate rate.

When you choose the best piano moving company in Boston, you can be sure that the Boston piano movers rates are affordable and the crew will be experienced with the right equipment. That means you can relax and trust that your heirloom piano will make the trip unharmed.

There’s one more aspect about the cost of Boston piano movers that may have you curious. Do you need to tip piano movers? How much tip for piano movers in Boston is appropriate? You definitely aren’t required to tip your piano movers, but our movers always appreciate the recognition for their hard work. Those who tip usually give between $20 and $40 per mover.

Choosing the Best Boston Piano Moving Company

You don’t want to trust your fragile piano to just anyone, but how do you choose affordable Boston piano movers you can trust? As with most things, it pays to do your research.

To find the best Boston moving company to trust with your piano, start by checking Boston moving company reviews on Google and Yelp. Look at the overall trend of reviews: are they positive or negative? Do you see the same complaints or praises mentioned? Next, verify how long the movers have been in business, their claims rate, and the number of pianos they move every year. You should also make sure they’re licensed and insured and verify their USDOT number with the Department of Transportation.

While price is important, remember that it isn’t everything. No one wants to save a little on moving labor only to pay hundreds for piano repair! Remember that trustworthy Boston, MA piano moving companies use the proper equipment for safely moving pianos as well as properly maintained trucks with smooth riding designed to handle delicate instruments.
