Man, do I have another funny story for you guys. Have you ever had a large piano you didn’t know what the hell to do with? We did, and they are so heavy that it doesn’t really make sense to move them even if you have your macho friends over, or you think you know what you’re doing, moving a piano is not only difficult, but it can be extremely dangerous as we found out for ourselves!
We have a baby grand piano which isn’t the biggest one, but still weighs probably 500 pounds at the least.. As you can tell this thing is just massive. So we were stumped for a while but we called upon United piano movers San Diego to come help us out with this monstrosity. This was our saving grace because we had to move this huge piano that we had no idea what to do with. I don’t even trust any regular movers to be able to do this squat because the piano is to nice to get all scuffed up and then it would just be a nightmare to look at. And we tried taking the legs off our-self so we could potentially move it but that’s where the “fun” ended. We didn’t even know how to do that! When we finally DID call United Piano Movers San Diego, they let us know they could take care of it all for a decent price. So they brought over this huge truck and got to work like it was a piece of cake. Pretty incredible to watch 3 guys take apart a piano so quickly and get her loaded up on this special dolly and out the door she went.
It was kind of like watching the old movie Robo-Cop with Arnold Schwarzenegger where he was lifting cars and throwing them like they were made out of tin foil? Yeah, that. Because these guys hauled the piano up onto a platform and put her in the truck and down the door went – poof. Done. At least for this location.
When we finally all got over to the new place, the piano then had to be taken out of the truck and hauled into the house basically just the same as the first time but in reverse. So these San Diego Piano Movers picked it up and carried it over 6 steps we had. That was freaking crazy. I thought they were going to drop it and I’m shocked they got it up there in one piece (minus the legs!).
We told them where we wanted it and they wrapped it up quick and were in and out within an hour from start to finish. Really surprisingly, no one was injured and now our piano has been set up and the shop is open meaning we can play that beast on perfect key. We had the piano tuned and as you can imagine a large baby grand piano like this plays extremely well. Nice full sound reverberation in the new house.
So that’s the story of how we had our piano moved and luckily got it all together in one piece without killing anyone. Time to go play with some shot guns boys.Comments (0)
