Piano moving services have been around for quite some time because piano owners have learned the intricacies of relocating their valuable instrument. Before this specialized service existed, piano owners used to hire general home or office movers to transport their instrument to a different location. But this was proven to be a dangerous practice because relocating an instrument like this has its intricacies and complexities that only experienced piano movers can handle.
As for EHMovers, our piano moving professionals are experienced and competent to guarantee the following to you:
Property damage prevention
The act of removing the piano from a property already requires skills because one wrong move can result to damage to walls, ceilings, and other parts of the house. Our piano movers know this so well and their years of experience in relocating piano taught them strategies and proper coordination on how to move the piano from one property to another without causing any property damage.
No need to buy your own safety tools
Furniture pads and piano dollies are only some of the tools you need to have in order to relocate your piano safely. These tools that are designed solely for piano moving can be quite expensive because of their size and durability. It will be a waste of money to buy your own piano moving tools and devices when you can opt to just hire EHMovers. We have all these necessary tools.
Less time on planning and actual moving
If you are not experienced in relocating a piano, you need to plan ahead and spend a considerable amount of time in executing piano relocation. Even when you do these things, there is no assurance that you can actually move your piano safely and securely. That’s the reason why you have to hire professionals from EHMovers. This is the most cost-efficient solution because we will handle the whole piano relocation process from planning to actual moving.
How to Take Care of your Piano After the Move
Having a piano inside your household serves as a wonderful outlet for your creativity. It’s also a dependable way to hone your musical talent and improve your skills in the comfort of your own home. Although the dream is to have a place where you can live in for the rest of your life, you have to face the reality of moving someplace else. When that time comes, you will need to bring your beloved piano along with you. After you have settled in your new home, it’s important to check your piano right away for its condition and appearance. You can follow these simple steps to ensure your piano will settle into your new residence nicely.
Determine if your piano was damaged during the actual move
After you have moved into your new house, unpacked all of your belongings, and arrange them accordingly, you should check on your piano immediately. Find out if all of its keys are still working properly or if there is any sign of damage on this instrument. Of course, you also need to do these things before the relocation process starts so you can call on the attention of your professional movers if they are responsible for these damages. If they are, you should hold them accountable for the repair of your piano as soon as possible. If you don’t find any kind of damage, then you can now proceed to cleaning your piano.
Get rid of the dust you see on your piano
The most common culprit to a piano’s decay and deterioration in its performance is the presence of dust. In moving this instrument, you’re going to find an abundance of this harmful substance after you have moved to a new place. What you should do is take your feather duster out and gently use it on your piano. Do remember to use gentle strokes to eliminate any trace of dust because you might scratch the surface of your piano.
Clean the wooden parts carefully
Removing dust from your piano is the easy part. Making it look like brand new is actually harder. Most pianos use wood in its construction and making this material look good requires some effort on your part. You need to find a bottle of wood polish for your piano and apply just the right amount on a piece of clean cloth. You can also use a microfiber towel in this task too. After applying it on the cloth, gently rub it along the wooden parts of your piano until it looks better than before. Just remember not to go overboard or the quality of your piano’s wooden surface will certainly suffer.
Use a polish for those black portions of your piano
Along with wood, most pianos employ a black finish to make it look more elegant. Of course, this is not the case all of the time. A design that uses black finish invites thumbnail marks that will make it look uglier. If you find your piano with these unpleasant marks, don’t rush ahead and wipe it off with any piece of cloth. It’s important to use a microfiber cloth in this step due to its non-invasive nature. This kind of cloth will help get rid of any marks without causing any scratches to your piano. Keep in mind to place this kind of cloth near your piano always to take care of those thumbmarks.
