Securing the Piano
First, place moving pads on any areas of the piano that may get scratched, such as corners or piano keys. Moving pads prevent scuff marks and other damages on the surface of the piano.
When you are ready, pull the piano away from the wall. Give yourself a good amount of clearance so you can maneuver the piano once it is out. We recommend about 3 feet of space around the entire object.
You will need a dolly. The dolly will reduce the amount of weight you will have to lift yourself and allow you to move the piano easily.
Maneuver the piano onto the dolly by tilting it slowly backward. Do not lift the piano using handles or legs. Lifting the handles or legs could snap them off and cause the piano to drop. Simply tilt the piano back and slide the dolly underneath.
Make sure the pedals of the piano are in the center of the dolly. Centering the piano will equally distribute the weight onto the dolly, allowing for easy and safe moving.
Once the piano is on the dolly, use moving straps to secure it. Moving straps wrapped vertically around the piano and dolly will reduce the chances of the dolly sliding out from underneath the piano.
