Creating A Stronger Workflow

The last time you moved, how did everything go? If you are like most people, there might have been a few things you wish you could go back and change. It isn't always easy to completely streamline something as large scale as moving, but with the right focus, you can make things a lot easier. I wanted to make things better in my own life when I found out I was moving, so I started doing some research. I learned so much that I decided to create a blog all about creating a stronger workflow during a relocation situation. I hope you enjoy it!

Moving A Piano Without Damaging It Or Injuring Yourself

If you own a piano and you need to move, then you know you have your work cut out for you. Moving the piano will be even more complicated for you if you have never moved since you bought it. Use the following tips to ensure your lack of piano-moving experience doesn't derail the process:

Know How to Lift Heavy Items Safely

Pianos are heavy, and lifting heavy items is risky, you can drop the item and damage it, drop it on your feet, or injure your back while trying to lift it off the floor. This means you need to know the proper lifting techniques for your own safety and for the safety of the piano. Here are some specific tips to keep in mind:

  • Don't twist your body while lifting
  • Don't bend forward; bend your hips and knees in a squatting position
  • Hold the load as close to your body as possible
  • Take small steps
  • Always keep your back straight

Get Adequate Helpers

Anytime you need to move a heavy object, you need an adequate number of helpers. This is necessary not only because it may be impossible for you to lift the piano on your own, but it is also dangerous to try it. Therefore, if you don't have enough friends or relatives to help with the move, then you should get hired help or leave the piano issue to a residential moving company.

Gather the Right Moving Equipment

There are moving supplies and equipment to help with heavy objects such as your piano. Specifically, you will need a four wheel moving dolly that is meant for moving pianos because it may not fit on regular dollies. You also need piano padding, floor shields and straps to protect your floor from damage when moving the piano outside.

Cover Up the Piano

You need to cover up the piano before moving it. First, however, you need to close the lid to protect the keys (they are more fragile than people think) and lock up the piano; you don't want it to accidentally open during loading or shipping. After that, cover up the entire piano with furniture blankets and hold in place, for example, by using tape or ropes.

It is riskier for a novice to injure themselves or damage a piano when moving it. Therefore, eliminate all these risks by hiring a moving company with piano-moving experience to handle the move for you.
