Concert Grands   you will have to call us on those.  Due to weight and height while on a dolly clearance heights need to be verified in advance.
 
Square grands , 3 to 5 steps only  450.00
 
Steinway uprights :  These are the most dangerous pianos to move in the " world of pianos"  Due to having an irregular skid plate bottom they do not sit well on a dolly.  We have a dolly we designed ourselves for these but our moving price on them suggests we really don't want anything to do with moving them.    3 to 5 steps max   550.00 
 
 
 
Polyester Finishes :  Special care must be taken with Polyester ; No shrink wrap, no moves when temps are below 43 degrees.  It is easily scratched and when making a purchase of anything with a polyester finish ALWAYS look at it in NATURAL light.  
 
 
 
 
ADDITIONAL CHARGES FOR THE FOLLOWING:
  • Stairs - Second floor carries add to the cost of moving because we need to hire additional labor. Charges can be waived if you want to provide the labor yourselves and agree to .  Upright Pianos above 42 inches tall are referred to another carrier.
  • High gloss clear or black finishes - these require enormous care when moving.  We will not move these types of pianos in the winter months. No exceptions.
  • Inaccessible properties including steep driveways, paver driveways, dangerous stairs, low overhangs, or limited access.

EQUIPMENT :  We use professional moving equipment such as non-marring ramps and grey rubber dollies that are hardwood floor friendly. We protect your tile and sandstone. 

TRUCKS :  All our trucks are USDOT/ MC compliant, meaning we have the additional required by insurance regulation Form BMC 91 X . All the trucks are lettered on 3 sides as required by law.  They are also equipped with rail type lift gates.
