If you need to move your piano, never entrust the task to regular packers and movers. Inexperienced movers are not skilled enough to safely transport your piano without any damage. The piano’s massive weight is distributed unevenly. For this reason, it requires proper lifting and planning. It is best to get a stress-free transit of your instrument to your new location with professional piano movers.

How to Dispose of a Piano
To dispose of a piano efficiently, the company you hire must have a spacious truck to transport this bulky piece. Moreover, they must be equipped with moving equipment such as straps and cranes, especially if the piano is massive. Experienced people with the right equipment are an excellent choice for moving your piano from one location to another.
1) Determine Its Condition
Check the soundboard at the back to know if your piano is still in good condition. If the soundboard has come loose, it will need to be repaired. Broken soundboards cause a significant loss of tone and make specific notes out of tune. You must also check for possible problems with the bridges and pin lock.
Consult with a piano technician if your piano can still be repaired. If they diagnose that your piano still has a chance for a new lease in life, it may be fit for donation or selling.
2) Determine the Piano Disposal Method of Your Choice
There are some basic things to look for to determine if your piano can be sold. Check its overall appearance, brand, age, and condition. When it comes to your piano’s appearance, people who purchase decent quality pianos of higher value often place them in elegant environments.

- • Protect your property
Do-it-yourself moving comes with potential dangers. You might accidentally damage the piece or bump the door frame. Repairs and replacements from these accidents can be expensive.
- • Keep everyone safe
You may be wondering how to get rid of clutter like a neglected piano. Professionals are trained in packing and transporting heavy equipment. So, you can avoid having to do this tedious task yourself. At the same time, you have the assurance of your piano being in good hands with logistics experts.
A piano can be recycled by removing parts such as wood, steel, wire, and iron. In some cases, a piano can be upcycled and renewed to be a beautiful decor piece. Recycling must be done locally since the cost of moving the piano can be costly. Research if there are local disposal companies or recycling centers in your location.
Here are a few advantages to donating your piano:
- • When you donate a piano to a nonprofit, you might actually get a deduction in your income taxes equal to the total market value of this musical instrument.
- • Along with the schoolchildren who benefit, you will also get a real feeling of gratitude knowing that this instrument is moving on to do something else.

Considerations When Moving a Piano
A piano takes up a lot of space, whether a grand piano, baby grand or an upright. And they can be a costly instrument to maintain. In fact, preservation of a piano can easily cost much more than it will ever be worth as an antique or for resale. If you’d like to cut your losses and regain some valuable real estate in your home, we’re here to help.
If your piano is a valuable piece, you don’t want to entrust its removal and care to just anyone. Trust the company that delivers courteous, caring service on every job. We’ll secure your precious heirloom on special piano dollies for safe transport to the destination of your choice.
Getting your piano out of your home requires care and skill to avoid damage to property or physical injury. Its size and construction makes a piano particularly challenging to move. Pianos are heavy and oddly balanced, increasing the risk of tipping, falling or causing damage while moving.

Piano Disposal vs Piano Recycling: Which Should You Choose
At the end of the day, choosing between removal and disposal will only depend on your circumstance. If the piano is still in a good shape, try donating it. If not, then look for professional help and dispose of your old piano hassle-free.
