All Piano Movers Are Not Created Equal
Some men can deliver a large grand piano by themselves. Some use the swarm method (a bunch of little guys). Some use ex-convicts. Some do not. Some are insured and bonded, and some are not. Some are better for long distance piano delivery... or short distance. Stair jobs require special expertise (and experience). Sometimes the piano may not need to leave your house at all... Maybe it should just be moved to another room.
We have used numerous cranes and even helicopters for extreme deliveries! This is where experience makes a huge difference. Maybe it is way cheaper to drag the piano in a U-haul across the country yourself but just have a piano mover put it on and another take it off. The whole idea is to get the piano to your house with no damage to the piano, the house, the mover, or yourself.
I have seen a beautiful, new rosewood polish grand piano dropped off the back of a large truck by a mover under the influence of a mind-altering substance. I have seen inexperienced piano movers hurt.
I have a piano mover with me for 40 years that has a record of phenomenal damage-free, injury-free, and trouble-free moving.
