Classic Piano Doc moving a studio-sized piano to the third floor of a house in Greenport, NY using a crane. Ingenuity is my specialty.
Piano moving should not be a scary experience. Use a Pro.

Piano moving is not for the amateur and often not done well by many furniture moving companies. Don't risk having your valuable piano damaged by the uninitiated. If done right it looks easy and there is little risk of damage. A good move involves an intellectual exercise in physics as much as physical exercise. By using mechanical advantage and winches, it can be made to look rather easy too. I have a number of devices developed for moving pianos or adapted from other rigging trades for lifting and moving heavy equipment. They are time and field tested and work well. It sometimes takes a few minutes longer but it is better to be safe than sorry. Those that rely on brute force alone sometimes run out of that force at inconvenient times resulting in a "resounding" disaster.
My prices are very competitive but like all other piano movers, the price depends on the situation. A move out of a low ranch is not the same as a 3 story walk-up apartment. Please gather this information before calling for an estimate:
