Pick the best piano removalists for you

Regardless of whether you are simply moving a piano or searching for proficient complete piano moving help, you should never race into finding a mover. Take as much time as necessary to do the examination and make time to get some information about:

  • Their Piano Moving and storage insurance
  • If they offer door to door moving service or not?
  • Sizes of moving vans they are providing
  • The tools and equipment they use during the move
  • How many pianos have they moved to date?
  • The preparation and techniques of their piano removalists
  • Accessibility and availability

The right piano removalists will ensure that they can move all types of pianos. There are different types of pianos and as their complexities change, the techniques in which they are moved also changes. For example, to move an upright piano, you’ll need to secure the piano keys and piano pedals. Cover with a moving blanket and tape to make sure about. Follow by covering the piano with a moving blanket, putting them on the front, back and sides. After that, we need to tape all covers to make sure about the setup. At last, when it’s been fully packed, we safely load it into the piano moving the trolley and head towards the vehicle.

In a lot of cases, a piano needs to be disassembled because of the complications such as steep rises or slopes, narrow pathways, large numbers of staircases, etc. Without proper training, one cannot disassemble a piano. But Moving Champs’ piano removalists in Brisbane, are disassembling the pianos for years, in such complicated cases.

Effects of weather on your piano

When availing of a storage service, people don’t actually know much about how the temperature of the storage house can affect a piano. Assure yourself, and choose the best for your piano by knowing the effects of different weathers on it.

Warm Weather

Hotter temperatures like the ones we’re presently experiencing can make piano strings expand slightly, much like running boiling water over a glass container’s metal rings to relax them and open easily. Hotter climates can likewise make the wood in pianos extend and swell.

Fall & Winter

Fall & Winter is known to make piano strings contracted. Since they’re twisted so firmly, this can put whole loads of pressure on the strings and keys. Simultaneously, cool temperatures make the wood in pianos and their soundboards twisted and wrapped.

While you can’t really observe these impacts since they’re very insignificant visually, the individuals who know about the particular hints of the sound of pianos can absolutely hear the effect.


Significant levels of dampness or moisture in the air could make the soundboard swell. And low humidity levels prompt it to shrink.

Hiring professional piano removalists is indeed the most likeable approach to handle all your stress regarding your piano.
