Professional piano movers in London
We know how to move pianos effortlessly
Fantastic Removals will send a team of expert piano movers who will arrive prepared with all piano moving equipment and tools needed for the job at the arranged time and date for the job. You'll have to secure a parking spot for the team to park the moving van. From there your piano is in the safe hands of the professional piano movers.
Any removable parts of the musical instrument will be detached if necessary. The piano will be reassembled at the destination address once the move is completed.
Flexible piano storage solutions
We have an affordable CCTV-protected storage facility in the London area at your disposal. Just let us know if you would like to avail of our offers!
Our removals team will transport your piano to the storage facility and safely place it into a wooden crate which you can hire for as long as you need. When the storage period ends, a team of movers will load the piano in a van and delivery the piano to the exact address as the customer requests.
We deal with any type of pianos
Most often we have customers with grand pianos which are heavier and require a special approach from the movers. Often, the piano movers will come prepared with a unique plan for the particular piano that is to be transported as each job comes with certain challenges.
No matter the type, size and condition of the piano, the professional piano movers will find the best way to secure the object by wrapping it in protective packing materials. Once successfully packed the removals team will move the piano to the van where it is often being loaded with a dolly.

Helpful piano moving advice and tips
By moving small items out of the way, you will ensure enough room for the movers to properly pack and secure your piano. Also the less clutter there is, the easier it will be for the professional removals experts to move the piano out of your property.
If you're moving out entirely leave the piano for last until all other furniture is out of the way.
Before anything else, you should take the dimensions of the piano and measure all doorways, hallways and staircases through which the piano will need to be moved. You don't want any narrow staircases standing in the way of your otherwise well-planned piano removals.
Open all doors as wide as possible. Alternatively if needed you can temporarily detach the door. This will eliminate the chances of any unpleasant surprises on moving day.
The removals experts will secure the piano with packing materials and blankets that will protect it during the move. However, if you are worried that on the way out there is a risk the piano may bump into any furniture or corners consider moving the furnishings around and covering any corners with blankets or foam pads to protect them. If needed cover any exposed hardwood floors as well.
Piano removal is a time-consuming process so you should consider that when organising your schedule for moving day. It will take the professionals quite some time to pack the musical instrument, safely manoeuvre it till they make it out of your property and load it into the moving van. However much time it takes your cherished piano is in safe hands and will go through the relocation process trouble-free!
Fantastic Removals is all about bringing you a complete solution to your problem! Not only are we good with moving pianos, but we can also help you with moving house.
Consider this, we can do a video or a live survey of your property to determine the scope of your move and how much help you will need. Keep in mind that we can help you with packing or simply provide you with packing materials so you can handle it all yourself if that is what you prefer.
On the other hand, we can disassemble some of your furniture to move it more easily and assemble it at your new location.
Piano removals frequently asked questions
Q: How is a piano being moved?
A: There are different methods for moving a piano. As a moving company, we aim at meeting the customer’s requirements at the most convenient price. This means the moving team has to transport the piano as efficiently as possible. One of the ways is to move it by hand and load it into a moving van, this is easy when dealing with a baby grand piano or located on low levels in the property, usually on the first floor. Standard grand pianos are much harder to move and require multiple men and tools such as a dolly at least.
Q: Should I try to move the piano myself?
A: We highly recommend that you never try to move a piano by yourself. It’s one of the biggest challenges for any moving team and it’s also the object that causes traumas most often when people try to relocate it. Even if you follow strict rules of lifting heavy objects properly, this doesn’t guarantee that you will not succumb to the heavy mass of the piano. Using a dolly when there is not enough manpower is one of the ways to transport a piano from one place to another while reducing the risk of injuries.
Q: How much does it cost to move a piano?
A: Currently, we cannot give a definite answer to this question as any piano moving job has a unique scale of complexity. Factors such as on what level is the room where the piano is located affect the price so does its size and whether it needs to be partly disassembled before the piano removal job. Using more men for the job will also affect the service price, additional work time needed will do so as well.
Q: Will I need to tune my piano after the house move?
A: Your piano may look tough, but the inner mechanics are sensitive to just about anything. Generally speaking, the move itself will not affect it all that much. However, you need to consider you are moving the instrument in a different environment: the temperature will change, the humidity will be different, even the room size will not be the same. Leave the piano rest for a few weeks in its new place and only then proceed to have it tuned.
