We are a very successful piano moving company and our Montreal piano movers have years of experience moving some of the most expensive and precious pianos and we guarantee complete satisfaction when we take on your moving job.
Pianos are expensive and, in some cases, they are priceless family heirlooms so transporting a piano is a delicate and ultra-careful process. Our Montreal piano movers never cut corners and we have the knowledge to handle any challenge involved in moving a piano.
We Move Your Piano Safely
We know the variety of pianos and the approximate value they represent. Transporting a piano is a painstaking and meticulous process that requires a lot of attention from the part of piano movers and a lot of details to be considered. Normally, such details should be previously provided by the assessor who came to your home to estimate the complexity of the work.
Our Montreal piano movers can also do an estimate through an online consultation using video conferencing. Our piano moving company has a goal to make your move as convenient as possible for you.
For example: our piano moving company recently worked with a customer who was a concert pianist. She was moving out of her downtown condo and hired us to move her baby grand piano to her new home. One of our piano movers met with her to assess the circumstances of her move. Noting the number of stairs, measuring hallways and door frames and mapping out the route the piano would need to travel through in order to be moved safely out of her condo.
Planning is key for our Montreal piano movers. Not only do we assess the intricacies of the space the piano is being moved from, our piano movers need to look carefully at the physical condition of the piano.
Paying close attention to the shape the piano is in, observing any markings or dents or out of tune keys. Our piano moving company believes it is essential to make each customer feel confident knowing the condition of their piano will be maintained during the move.
Large pianos can weigh upwards of a thousand pounds, and this requires significant manpower. Our assessor will record all the details of the piano to better prepare for the day of the move.
On the day of the move, our piano movers arrived at our client’s condo ready to work. The professional piano movers disassembled the pieces of the piano that were removable. All proper tools are brought to the job.
Our Montreal piano movers then used special moving blankets to wrap the piano to make sure the surfaces are well protected and insulated. Plastic wrap is also used to secure items.
In the case of our past client, we were able to use dollies to move her piano to the truck, however in more complex cases our piano moving company has used a crane to lift a piano from a patio window. Our piano moving company will go to all lengths to ensure your valuable instrument can be moved cautiously and securely.
The distance the piano movers need to get the piano from the easiest access point in the house or building to the truck is also considered in the move. Will our piano movers from Montreal be on flat ground? Is there grassy terrain for our piano movers to maneuver through? These factors are important as any obstacle could cause the piano to be damaged. So much care and consideration is taken into account by our piano moving company.
Once the piano has made it to the truck, our Montreal piano movers have tricks and tried and true methods to secure the piano in the truck so there will be absolutely no movement of the piano. This is imperative to keeping the piano safe during transport.
When our piano movers arrived at our customer’s new home, the same methods are repeated, just in reverse. If there are different challenges at the new location, our piano movers in Montreal will made adjustments to the plan and carry out whatever moving methods are needed.
The best thing about hiring our piano moving company is that our piano movers will give you a detailed quote and won’t proceed unless you are totally satisfied with the estimate.
Every moving scenario is unique, and all the details and factors are considered before giving our customer a quote. All quotes are based on the particularities of each move.
Our piano moving company prides itself in never giving any surprises in price to our customers. There are never any hidden or extra fees. This allows our customers to rest easy knowing the price they were quoted by our Montreal piano movers is the price they will pay at the end of the moving service.

How to Move A Piano?
Sometimes we suppose that a physical power is pretty enough to move a piano. We would deny this opinion and we shall try to show you the opposite: mental toughness during a heavy piano removal is often more important than physical effort.
Firstly, an experienced piano mover will consider the following elements:
- type of piano
- floors to move piano downstairs and/or upstairs
- curved stairs and the angle for moving the piano
- distance between the truck and the front door
Secondly, our piano movers get prepared for your piano move (relocation or shipping), and namely they:
- dismantle all the parts of the piano
- protect the piano with thick moving blankets (packing)
- do plastic film packaging
- put the piano on a piano skid board in order to avoid direct contact with the floor and the ground while handling it
- strap the piano to the skid board
- lift and put the piano onto the 4-wheel dolly
Thirdly and most important, the movers bring the piano downstairs or upstairs (if applicable):
- before starting, they will reconsider all the circumstances of moving the piano (vertically or horizontally, on a dolly or using the straps, they will also determine which mover will climb first, who in second, etc.)
- finally, here are the real physical efforts to properly keep the balance of the piano when moving up or down the steps
- they finish by unpacking the piano and reassembling its parts (piano pedals, feet, caster cups, etc.)
As you can see, moving a piano requires piano movers who have expert knowledge of the inner workings of a piano. A piano can get damaged easily and it is imperative that you always hire experienced piano movers and not just a regular moving company.
Our Montreal piano movers have the skills and understanding of these exquisite instruments to care for them during transport.
All our piano movers have all the tools and tricks of the trade to properly move a piano and also possess proper lifting techniques to avoid injury, as well as to not damage this highly delicate instrument.
