Analyzing Your True Cost Savings When Moving Your Piano Yourself
Most professional piano movers charge
from $250 - $1000 to move a
piano locally (depending upon the size of the piano,
the distance moved and the number of stairs traversed).
Add another $200 - $1500 to
that price for long-distance hauling. So you could spend anywhere from $250 to $2500 to move your piano.
Compare your truck rental costs + your cost to purchase the piano moving equipment
+ the potential for mover injury and / or piano damage and / or property damage
to a professional mover's
charges and you'll find that in the vast majority of cases the
net cost savings to you to move the piano yourself
just isn't that great!
It is our belief that in most piano moving situations, financially speaking and health wise for you, your crew and your piano you would be much better off just hiring a qualified piano mover in your area to do the job for you. Remember, the professional piano moving company is liable if any injuries or damages to the piano occur! Certainly you should at least call one or two professionals to get a quote before you make a final decision to move your own piano yourself.
