Safely moving your piano

If you’re preparing for a move across town or across the country, you may be wondering how to safely move your piano from point A to point B. Our job at Golden Gate Moving is to answer any questions you have and make sure the move goes smoothly, with zero damage to your piano. Some of the questions we hear from customers are:

  • How do I fit a piano in a stairwell?
  • Do I need a crane to move a piano?
  • How do I remove windows or doors to get the piano out?
  • Do I need ot hire a professional piano mover?

When moving your piano, having a trained and experienced piano mover is essential to protecting your possessions. Be careful of the household moving companies who claim they can move your piano. Although intentions are good, they don’t specialize in pianos like we do. Piano moving is not something that can be learned in a matter of weeks or months. It is something that is perfected only through years of training and on the job experience, especially in the city of San Francisco with all of our steep hills and tight turns.

During our decades of experience in San Francisco homes, we’ve become accustomed to navigating tight corners and employing hoisting assistance. We’ll first come to your home and assess the situation. If you have an upright piano and a wide stairwell, we may be able to easily maneuver your piano down the stairs and out of the house using piano skids, moving pads, ramps and slings. We also provide complete hoisting services if the stairs are too narrow or you need move a grand piano. If we find that a crane is the only way to get the piano into or out of your house, we’ll give you an estimate and talk you through the hoisting and moving process so there are no loose ends come moving day. We take care of the details, from providing the crane to removing any windows or doors as needed. You won’t have to hire and pay three different companies to do one move, which is why we at Golden Gate Moving have earned such a stellar reputation as the piano movers San Francisco can count on.
