We are often asked, how do you move a piano up flights of stairs?
Taking pianos upstairs or down stairs can be very dangerous. At Piano Logistics we prepare all pianos at our warehouse that are going to go via stairs with protective edges and strapping. Although this sounds like common sense, it is not normal practice.
Upright pianos range from 250kgs to 360kgs, grand pianos from 300kgs to 650kgs. Most pianos have a polyester resin finish which, if damaged, will shatter like glass. A small quality repair will cost around £300.
It is our job to transport your piano in the same condition we collected it in. This includes not damaging your property. There is no point delivering a piano up stairs to find out you have to re-decorate, so we protect every piano we carry upstairs, we also protect your walls and floors. This does increase expense, but is far cheaper than repairing the piano or re-decorating.
