Our Piano Moving Services

As part of our professional piano moving service in Edinburgh, we adhere to Quality Service Standard BS EN 12522, making us fully compliant in all process aspects. 

Despite most pianos’ weight and size, they are delicate and require extra care when shipping. We provide a complete moving service that covers securely packing, loading, transporting, and unloading your piano into your new home. 

Whether you are moving your piano from a domestic or commercial premise, in Edinburgh or internationally, our team can make the moving process a smooth transition, ensuring your piano reaches its destination in pristine condition. 

We Move All Types of Pianos

Our expert team will be in touch every step of the way, arranging with you any necessary preparations to make before the arrival of the removal team, such as clearing the space or wrapping up the piano. The scale of packing and loading requirements will depend on the size of your piano:

Upright Pianos

Upright pianos are reasonably easy to move. Older upright pianos can be top-heavy, making them more challenging to move, while newer ones are much lighter and usually on wheels. In most cases, an upright piano can be protected using a padded cover and wheeled carefully into a van. For added protection, upright pianos should be wrapped securely to prevent transit damage.

Grand Pianos

Grand pianos are very heavy and have a large surface area, creating issues for movers navigating them through narrow doorways and staircases. Your removal company will bring all the necessary equipment, such as straps, padding, and ramps, to package your grand piano securely and transport it safely to its new home.

Piano Moves FAQs

  • How heavy is a piano?

    Upright pianos are generally lighter than only pianos, weighing between 136kg and 227kg. A baby grand piano weighs between 227kg and 295kg, and a grand piano can weigh up to 544kg.

  • Can I move my piano?

    Moving a piano is very challenging. Before moving it yourself, you should look into hiring a professional moving company. At least four or five people will need to lift the piano, with another guiding the piano out of the house and into a truck. The piano should be carefully packaged and wrapped to ensure it will reach its destination without a scratch, and the surrounding area should be cleared to prevent accidents.

  • How much does it cost to move a piano?

    A piano moving cost is determined by the size and weight of the piano as well as how far away it will be shipped. At Guardian Removals, we provide our customers with a no-obligation, clear, concise, and easily understood quotation. The price of our removal services reflects the quality and care that we put into ensuring your belongings are safely moved from one location to another.
