Why use a piano mover?

Piano moving is no small task. The sheer weight and size of pianos and organs make them difficult to handle for most people. In the hands of someone not trained in piano moving, an attempt to move a piano or organ can cause damage to the instrument and your home or building. Still, many people hesitate to call professional piano movers because they mistakenly believe the cost for piano moving is extremely high, or that the piano movers won’t show up on time. Rest assured that Guardian Moves and Storage offers fair prices, and we treat your piano as if it was one of our own.

Just a friendly reminder, don’t forget about piano tuning. Piano tuning is the adjustment made to the strings to bring each string to its proper tension. Pianos need to be tuned when there is a change in atmosphere. So tuning with the change of the seasons is advised, about 6 weeks after. New pianos should be tuned 3- 4 times the first year. Whenever a piano is moved, whether in the house, across town, or across the United States.
