Even those in the moving industry acknowledge piano moving presents a unique challenge.  They are heavy, awkwardly balanced, and unforgiving should the wrong techniques be applied.  Years of experience in piano restorations and repair has provided the piano movers at River Valley Piano with unique insight into the demands of a safe, successful, piano move.  Specialized equipment, an understanding of how pianos are made-and where leverage can be properly used; combined with an appreciation for the property (i.e. your home!) surrounding the piano are what it takes to complete this important task.  We're not your average piano moving company! Please take a moment to fill our moving form, and we'll enter into our piano moving cost estimator.
