WE NOW ONLY OFFER A "WHITE GLOVE" PIANO MOVING SERVICE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE A PIANO QUOTE WE DO REQUIRE AN APPOINTMENT SET UP IN ORDER TO VIEW BOTH THE PICK UP LOCATION, AS WELL AS THE DELIVERY LOCATION.
If either of those locations are long distance to you, we will require pictures of the pianos, where they are located in the home, the angle getting out to the front door, the steps leading out the door and the entryway. We will also require the pathway that will lead to our vehicle.
If you are calling around to have a price beat or have waited to the last minute we prefer that you do not use us. We offer a white glove service and that might not be the cheapest, we prefer to use the best labor and equipment to perform this type of work. We have had zero claims in over 40 years of continuous service, we only move pianos and are not furniture movers.
