If you own one, then you’re well aware that pianos are extremely heavy instruments. Because of their weight and size, trying to move them without damage to the instrument, the walls, floor or your back, takes careful planning and expertise.
Before we go any further - we want to clarify that boxes for general household storage are not suitable to use for your move. Why? Because generic storage boxes you can purchase locally, say from your local hardware store, are not designed to be strong or tough enough for commercial transportation. Generic storage boxes used for a commercial move is likely to result in boxes giving way under weight, or tears and punctures to the box, all resulting in damage to your items. Generally, you’ll probably pay more per box for a moving box over a storage box, but it’s definitely worth the investment.
