If Bach or Mozart thought composing music on the piano was difficult, they should try moving one! Moving large pianos or large works of art can be difficult, delicate, and heavy work, and should always be handled by a professional. There are a few things to keep in mind when moving such large things, most important of which is the weight of the object, so you can properly gauge how much labor will be necessary to move it. Rest assured that no matter how big your piano or art installation, Air 1 Moving & Storage has the tools and the crew you need to help you relocate.
Air 1 Moving & Storage provides reasonable and affordable rates for art & piano moves. Trained in all of the proper packing and transport methods for moving large artwork and pianos, you can sleep easy knowing that Air 1’s team will never scratch or scuff your prized piano or artistic masterpiece. Most of the time, pianos or heavy art installations will be transported from pickup location to truck by means of a heavy-load bearing furniture dolly, equipped with padded straps to secure the item firmly in place. The item is then draped and wrapped in a hefty padded blanket before being relocated to ensure that your move is 100% scuff-free! When you use Air 1 to book an art or piano move, you become the highest priority. Never let another moving company scratch your beautiful piano or piece of art again! Air 1’s team of moving professionals will invest time and care into your personalized move, making sure to lock the keyboard lid, evenly distribute weight on the proper dolly, and never let tape touch the face of a wooden surface, or any surface that would otherwise be harmed by the stripping of adhesive. It is a well-known fact that the legs or casters on a piano tend to become strained during the moving process, which is why Air 1 takes extra care to ensure the safe transport and delivery of your piano. Do not leave your piano in the hands of amateurs!

Piano Moving Tips
- Avoid the piano legs!It’s no secret that the casters or piano legs of your piano face the most stress and strain during a big move. If you ever attempt at lifting a piano without the help of Air 1, never lift the piano by the legs and always lock your casters in place (if available) before attempting to load the piano onto a dolly.
- Keep the piano upright as much as possible.The inner workings of a piano are very delicate, and gravity can be a piano’s worst enemy if your it is not kept upright. Avoid tilting or sitting your piano on its side during your move to minimize any internal damage that could potentially be done.
- Tune your piano after the move.
Keep the smaller items for smaller boxes, and place those smaller boxes into the bigger ones to conserve on space. Be sure to label each box you pack, big and small, to keep track of everything that you have packed or unpacked. Make sure smaller, loose items are kept in plastic bags or other kinds of compressible containers. It may seem like a bit of tedious, unnecessary work, but it will end up saving you time and money in the long run.
