Piano Shifting. 45 Years experience.
Our main piano Shifting day is Saturday. This works in with most people moving house on the weekend. When we move a piano we use a specially designed piano trolley.
We can move your piano from room to room or from house to house. If your instrument is properly moved it will suffer no harm and may not need tuning when it is relocated.
It is risky to do this yourself, with the average piano weight of about 300 Kg and for safety we recommend you always use professional piano movers.
Why choose Piano Magic to shift your piano?
Gary has been shifting pianos for 49 years, so he knows the ins and outs of relocating a piano. Piano Magic has equipment specifically designed for shifting and relocating pianos. For example, we have trailers with small, dense tyres to cope with the weight as well as purpose made piano covers to prevent scratches or weather damage. We also use slide glides on the base of the piano when shifting on wood floors – this reduces the these particular glides are brought from Germany specifically for shifting pianos.
When the piano is placed into the new location he will give us advice on the best place for the piano like not on an outside wall and if that’s the only place he recommends a Piano life saver system so the piano will stay in tune.
