Piano Movers Essex services

Moving a piano can be quite a task! These magnificent musical instruments are not only heavy and unwieldy, but they’re also delicate and valuable. An upright can weigh anywhere from 130 to 370 kilos, while grand pianos can tip the scales at a whopping 540 kilos. Add to that the unique shapes and sizes, and you’ve got a logistical challenge on your hands. Whether yours is an heirloom passed down through generations or a cherished purchase, it deserves to be handled in a respectful and professional manner.

With a team of highly trained professionals, we handle your treasured instrument with the utmost care and precision.

Read on to learn more about our exceptional services for piano removals in Essex and the meticulous process we undertake to ensure your instrument’s safe relocation.

Grand & Upright Piano Moves in Essex

Whether you own a grand piano that is the centerpiece of your living room, or an upright piano tucked into a cosy corner, we at South Easter Removals are supplied with the equipment needed to move them with ease.

For grand pianos, we carefully dismantle the piano, and padding and packing each part separately. This includes the removal of the legs, pedals, and the piano lid. 

For upright pianos, although they are generally easier to manoeuvre, we still take every precaution necessary to ensure their safe transition. We utilise specially designed piano moving equipment, like piano dollies, trolleys, and skid boards, for smooth and secure transportation. Furthermore, our team is trained and fully equipped with specialist piano shoes, hoists, piano covers, heavy duty ramps for difficult steps and professional piano trolleys.

Plus, our team of piano movers in Essex is experienced in navigating the diverse terrain, from the quaint cottages of rural landscapes to multi-storey buildings in urban areas.

Piano Pre-Move Consultation in Essex

Before we embark on the actual move, we conduct an essential pre-move consultation. This step is integral to our piano moving process as it allows us to understand the unique requirements of each piano move. During this consultation, our removals experts visit your home to assess the size, weight, and condition of your piano. 

We also take into account the layout of your home, noting any tight turns, staircases, or narrow doorways that could impact the move. This process enables us to formulate a comprehensive moving plan, tailored to your specific needs and ensures we’re fully prepared on moving day. In addition, we’ll provide advice on how to prepare your piano for the move and answer any questions you might have about the process.

Packing & Crating Piano in Essex

Recognising the delicate nature of the instrument, we employ a meticulous packing process. We wrap the piano in thick, protective padding to shield it from any bumps or scratches. Particularly delicate parts, such as the keys and pedals, receive extra attention to ensure their complete protection.

Once suitably wrapped, we carefully place the piano in a custom-built crate. Our crates are designed to accommodate the unique shape and size of your piano, providing it with a secure and snug fit. Constructed from high-quality, durable materials, these crates are designed to withstand the rigours of moving, offering an additional layer of protection.

Our packing and crating process is carried out under the watchful eyes of our experienced and fully insured team who are trained in the handling of pianos. Every step is conducted with the utmost caution and precision, reflecting our commitment to delivering your piano to its new location in pristine condition.
