Selecting a Miami Piano Moving Company
Finding the right mover for your specialty items such as pianos or large, heavy antiques is not difficult but it does require you to do a bit of research and fact checking to assure yourself a reliable mover that falls within your budget.
The important point is that someone else does it for you because moving a piano is something best left to professionals.
Also, hiring a professional gives you the option of insuring your piano if something were to go wrong.
Half a Ton of a Prized Possession
A grand piano weighs in at about 1200 lbs. Piano movers have the experience and equipment (piano dolly) necessary to get the job done right. When choosing an expert be wary of moving companies giving you ridiculously low prices. Quality and peace of mind do not come cheap. Many of these companies want to suck you in with low prices only to gouge customers later or they simply are not very good at what they do, either scenario is unacceptable.
Ask prospective companies to meet the team that you are going to entrust with your piano in person. What kind of training and experience have they had? Does it seem like they work well together? If they are a legitimate piano moving candidate then this should not be a problem for them. See if the vans that they use have air ride suspension systems and never, ever consider a company that is not fully licensed, insured and bonded.
Check Them Out
Before you hire any piano mover it is a good idea to check with your local agencies such as the Better Business Bureau and the Chamber of Commerce to see if any complaints (or compliments) have been given to them by past customers. Remember that not all moving companies handle specialty moves and finding the right outfit to move your precious instrument will be well worth the time and effort to ensure a damage free move.
