Piano Moving Cape Town

Piano Moving Cape Town

Let us assist you with your piano moving Cape Town. Pianos are extremely heavy , uprights weigh from 175kgs up to well in excess of 250 kgs. Grand pianos vary from 250kgs up to 500kgs! If it was merely a matter of weight then all it would take would be a sufficient number of strong individuals to move the piano. Unfortunately along with the weight come the problems of inertia and balance, the knowledge of which can make all the difference in the move being successful. A knowledge and experience of the correct methods to apply will enable two or three experienced individuals to move a piano safely and efficiently. Even grand pianos can be moved by two or three properly trained individuals using the proper equipment in the absence of a flights of stairs So, the task of moving a piano is not just a matter of weight. The asymetrical shape, the fragility of the outer cabinet and inner mechanics, the uneven distribution of parts , all this and more demands not only proper equipment, but also an understanding of the unique dynamics of balance and inertia that pianos pose. Attempting to move the piano with a bunch of inexperienced helpers can not only result in costly damage to the piano but you can also be landed with hospital bills.

Currently I am using an excellent piano mover who only moves pianos and is therefore well equipped to handle all types and sizes. He is also generally available at short notice , unlike other movers who become snowed under at month end.
