How to Move a Piano Without Professional Movers

How to Move a Piano Without Professional Movers


Moving a piano is not for the faint of heart. As anyone who’s ever done it will tell you, this arduous task requires some serious manpower and preparation. The process of moving a piano is so tedious and strenuous that it has even managed to carve out its own niche in the moving industry. Nowadays, you can find moving and storage companies all over the country solely dedicated to piano moving.

Considering the fact that pianos typically weigh anywhere between 300 to 1,000 (or more!) pounds, we certainly recommend hiring a professional moving company with piano moving experience to do the job. Many times, a piano also happens to be the most valuable and expensive item inside a person’s home. The price of a quality piano ranges from the low thousands to upwards of $100,000. Given a piano’s value, it’s especially important that the instrument is handled with the utmost care, making professional movers all the more necessary.

However, if hiring professional movers simply isn’t in your budget or timetable, it is possible to move most pianos with the help of friends. However, if you own a grand piano weighing 1,000 pounds, I strongly recommend investing in professionals. These exceptionally large pianos often require special equipment and handling that only true moving professionals can provide. Also, if there are steep stairs or particularly narrow hallways involved, I advise enlisting professionals as well.

Still convinced you want to move the piano yourself? Take a look at our helpful tips below.

Before the Move

Find the appropriate moving supplies and materials

First, you’ll need to make sure you have all the appropriate supplies and materials to safely and securely move the piano. For both an upright piano and a grand piano, you’ll need plenty of moving blankets for protection. After all, the last thing you want happening is a scratch (or worse!) on your valuable instrument. Tip: you can also use thick towels and blankets to cover the piano. Multiple rolls of tape will be needed to help secure the blankets in place. Moving an upright piano will also require a dolly capable of holding the piano’s weight.

Due to their size and structure, grand pianos are a bit more complicated to move and also require additional supplies. Besides moving blankets, I recommend finding the appropriate size piano board (also called a piano skid board) to handle your move. To hold your piano in place on a skid board, you’ll need straps and a screwdriver as well.

Enlist as many helpers as possible

Once you have your supplies in order, I recommend assembling a strong team of helpers. You’ll need at least four people – maybe more, depending on the size of the piano and the complexity of the move. It’s best to enlist friends, family and neighbors who have experience moving heavy items and are in relatively good shape. Make sure they’re all wearing appropriate moving clothing, as well as sneakers with good traction.

Measure doorways, staircases and hallways

Prior to the move, you should measure any place in your home that the piano will pass through. Make sure to thoroughly measure all doorways, staircases and hallways to assess how easily it will be to maneuver the piano and piano board through your home. It’s also a good idea to make sure doors are open, floors are properly protected, and furniture that could potentially hit the piano are removed before moving your musical instrument. If you’re worried about the piano nicking a corner or getting scratched along the way, try covering any sharp edges of the doorway with baby-proof bumpers or extra towels.

Moving the Piano

Moving an upright piano

Moving an upright piano and a grand piano both require plenty of preparation. To move an upright piano, you’ll want to protect the piano keys and piano pedals. Cover with a blanket and tape to secure. Follow by covering the piano with moving blankets, placing them on the front, back and sides. Tape all blankets to secure them in place. Once the piano is protected with moving blankets, you and your team can safely hoist the upright piano onto the dolly. When lifting the piano, be sure to have someone on all sides of the instrument. To avoid injuries, your moving team should take special precautions, making sure to bend the knees to prevent hurting their backs. Once the piano is on the dolly, carefully carry it to your moving truck.

Moving a grand piano

Before moving a grand piano, it’s especially important that you lower and secure the top lid. If you can, take a screwdriver to disassemble the piano pedals and legs. Carefully, take all legs off the grand piano. When taking the legs off the piano, make sure your team is in place to prevent the side of your piano from hitting the ground once the legs are removed. Wrap the lid, keys and all sides of the piano in moving blankets. Secure all blankets with tape. You’ll also want to wrap the piano’s legs and pedals in separate moving blankets. Make sure these pieces are safe and secure, then gently tilt the piano onto the piano board. Secure the piano to the piano board with straps. When pushing the piano board, I recommend having several team members help to prevent any accidents. After you successfully move the grand piano into your new home, you’ll need to re-assemble the legs and pedals. Make sure to have a team of people there to assist you with this part as well.

Once the move is complete, I recommend re-tuning your piano and giving it a good clean using a damp washcloth.

What You Should Know Before Renting a Moving Container From PODS

What You Should Know Before Renting a Moving Container From PODS

pods container

Thinking about renting a PODS moving container for your next move? If so, you’ll certainly save big bucks compared to hiring a professional moving company. In fact, renting a portable moving container from PODS for an interstate move will cost you a fourth of what a full-service moving company would cost.

In addition to saving you money on a move, these portable moving containers can also be used to temporarily store items during the moving process. For these reasons and more, moving containers have become one of the most cost-efficient and common sense ways to move to a new home. Here’s a quick rundown on how the popular moving container brand PODS works, what it costs and the company’s varying container sizes.

How It Works

Renting a PODS moving container is fairly simple. Customers must first choose whether they wish to store, move or do both with their belongings. If using the PODS container for storage, customers will need to decide whether to store the container at their location or at a PODS Storage Center. Customers must also decide on the duration they wish to use the container for storage. For both moving and storage, customers must choose a delivery location, date and size as well.

After reserving one or more PODS containers, the company will deliver the container right to the customer’s doorstep. From there, all they have to do is load up their belongings into the container at their own pace. PODS will pick up the container when they’re ready and deliver it to either the storage unit or the customer’s moving destination.

What It Costs

Moving: The cost of moving with a PODS moving container depends on the size of the container rented, the duration of the rental, and the number of miles the customer is moving. According to PODS, costs will vary based on where the customer is moving from and to. Long distance moves start as low as $800, but vary based on the miles the customer is moving and how many months of storage are needed. PODS notes that local moves typically cost less.

Storage: Customers have the option to store a PODS container on their property or at a PODS storage location. According to PODS, rates for storing a PODS container on the customer’s personal property start as low as $110 per month for a 12-foot container and $120 for a 16-foot container. However, monthly rental rates vary and are dependent on storage duration, container availability and location.

Container Sizes

PODS is a popular choice for those moving and/or looking for storage because of the container’s steel-framed and weather-resistant makeup, as well as the ramp-free loading. Each PODS container is equipped with tie-downs, steel locking latches, and a lock and key for security. According to PODS, the company’s containers are also built to withstand up to 110 mph winds.

PODS offers three different container sizes:

7-foot container

The PODS 7-ft. container is approximately 7’x7’x8’. According to PODS, the container is “perfect for small-volume moving and storage,” and is commonly used as a shipping container or storage unit for apartment and studio moves. The inside of the container offers 385 cubic feet of packing space, and can hold one full room of furniture. PODS claims the 7-ft. moving container is comparable to a 10-ft long rental truck.

According to PODS, popular uses for this container include:

  • Studio apartment moves
  • Smaller dwelling moves
  • College student moving
  • Estate moving
  • Moving items to a second home
  • Temporary storage for small remodeling and renovation projects such as bathroom remodels

The 7-ft container is available for long distance moves in the U.S. and Canada. Many PODS locations also offer this container for local moving and storage.

12-foot container

The PODS 12-ft. container is approximately 12’x8’x8′. According to PODS, the container is the “perfect solution for moving an apartment or house with two or three rooms.” The inside of the container offers 689 cubic feet of packing space and is comparable to a rental truck that is 15 feet long.

According to PODS, popular uses for this container include:

  • Moving homes with two to three rooms
  • Larger apartment moves
  • Office relocation
  • Home remodeling and restoration projects

The 12-ft. container is available at most PODS locations and can only be used for in-town moving and storage.

16-foot container

The PODS 16-ft. container is approximately 16’x8’x8. According to PODS, the container is the company’s largest container option and is a “popular choice for moving a home with three or four rooms.” The inside of the container offers 857 cubic feet of packing space. PODS claims that the 16-ft. moving container is comparable to a rental truck that is 20 feet long.

According to PODS, popular uses for this container include:

  • Moving homes with three to four bedrooms
  • Office relocations
  • Large home remodeling and restoration projects

The 16-ft. container is available for long distance moves in the U.S. and Canada. This size container is also available for local moving and storage in most PODS locations.

Other portable moving container options

In addition to PODS, there are multiple other moving container options available to those moving and/or looking for storage. Here are a few of the most popular:

  • U-Haul’s U-Box Containers U-Haul’s U-Boxes offer customers plenty of flexibility when it comes to moving and storage with their moving containers. Customers can choose from “the superior convenience option,” the “low-cost, do-it-yourself option,” and the “most cost effective option.” U-Haul’s U-Boxes come in one size, measuring 96″ x 60″ x 90″ (257 cubic feet) and have the capacity to hold up to 2,000 pounds. U-Haul’s storage facilities are secure and climate controlled with 24-hour access for customers. Those storing their belongings can rent these containers on a convenient, month-to-month basis.
  • 1-800-PACK-RAT – With its heavy emphasis on durability and security, 1-800-PACK-RAT’s portable containers are a popular choice for those looking to move and/or store their belongings. The weatherproof containers are outfitted in steel frames, walls and barn-style doors. They containers are also climate controlled and equipped with video surveillance. For added convenience, 1-800-PACK-RAT’s containers come in three different sizes: 16-ft., 12-ft., and 8-ft.
  • ABF U-Pack ReloCubesU-Pack offers ReloCube moving containers that are metal and weatherproof. The moving container company is a popular choice for those moving and/or looking for storage because customers can reserve as many ReloCubes as they think they will need, and they only have to pay for the ones they use. The company also allows customers to use their own padlocks on the ReloCube for added security. According to the website, U-Pack doesn’t require a down payment or deposit. After you’ve finished loading up the container, you can pay by credit card for the number of ReloCubes you ended up utilizing.
  • United Mayflower’s Containers – United Mayflower containers include smooth interior walls, galvanized steel framing and waterproof materials to keep your belongings properly protected. They’re also equipped with flush-mounted tie-down rings to prevent items from shifting while on the road, as well as a translucent roof that allows light into the container, so that customers can see what’s inside more easily. The company’s moving containers are 16’ long x 8’ wide x 8’ high, and can hold the contents of a 1,500 square-foot home.

5 Benefits of Moving to a Mobile Home

5 Benefits of Moving to a Mobile Home

manufactured home

For first time mobile home buyers, making the transition from a traditional home to a manufactured home can be daunting. With so many mobile home sizes, designs and materials to choose from, the options are seemingly endless. Not to mention, mobile home buyers must also figure out exactly where to permanently or temporarily park their mobile home once they purchase it. While moving to a manufactured home involves a bit of a learning curve, the advantages of owning this type of home make it well-worth the effort. Don’t believe us? Check out these 5 benefits of moving to today’s mobile home.

#1 Today’s mobile homes are safe and quality-controlled

While many assume that mobile homes are vulnerable to weather, the Manufactured Housing Institute points out that this is a common misconception. For those who don’t know, the common term “mobile home” actually refers to homes built before 1976. Any homes built after 1976 are technically referred to as “manufactured homes” because around this time, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development significantly raised the quality standards and requirements for these types of homes. In fact, all recently built manufactured homes are required to be up to code. This includes the home’s heating and air conditioning systems, fire safety, plumbing, electrical systems, structural design, construction, energy efficiency and transportation, according to the MHI.

The organization also points out that today’s manufactured homes are “engineered for wind safety and energy efficiency based on the geographic region in which they are sold.” So if you’re purchasing a manufactured home in Florida, for instance, you can rest assured that it has been built to withstand hurricane force winds. Today’s “mobile” homes are also held in place by steel anchors, which secure the home to the ground.

#2 You won’t break the bank when purchasing a manufactured home

Perhaps the biggest draw of buying a manufactured home is its low cost and affordability. Compared to traditional, site-built homes, manufactured homes offer more bang for the buck in terms of dollar per square foot. According to the Manufactured Housing Institute, mobile homes in 2015 “cost less than half as much as the estimated $100.65 per square foot for new site-built housing construction.” Today, the organization reports that the average price for a new, single-wide mobile home is $45,000. When you compare that to today’s average price of a new, site-built home at $379,500, you can see just how much money you could save by purchasing a manufactured home. While a monthly payment for a mobile home may be in the hundreds, it’s nothing compared to the monthly mortgage payment for a site-built home in the thousands. Owning a manufactured home is even cheaper than most rental rates. Given its affordability, manufactured homes are one of the best options for obtaining home ownership without breaking the bank.

#3 Purchasing a manufactured home gives owners the ability to live more simply

Many people choose to move to a manufactured home in order to live more simply. This type of “less is more” attitude has been scientifically proven to improve the mental well-being and overall health of those who adhere to this lifestyle. According to U.S. News and World Report, favoring “the environment over material consumption and income has been linked not only to improved environmental sustainability but also boosted mental and physical health.” The article reports that a survey out of the University of the Sciences in Pennsylvania discovered that those living simply reported  “improved physical health after voluntarily making a change to earn less money.” So for those looking to embrace the simple living movement, purchasing a manufactured home is the perfect way to do so.

Also, since your manufactured home may be less spacious than your former traditional home, you won’t have to worry as much about the maintenance of the property. After all, a smaller home with a smaller land lot means less landscaping and house maintenance. That means you’ll have more time to enjoy life. For advice on downsizing and eliminating clutter, check out our article, “Your Complete Guide to the Pre-Move Purge”.

#4 Purchasing a manufactured home is environmentally sound

If you’re hoping to save costs on utilities while simultaneously benefiting the environment, then purchasing a manufactured home could be a very smart investment. The Manufactured Housing Institute reports that these homes are constructed in a way that yields up to “90 percent less waste and environmental impact than site-built housing.” This increased energy-efficiency makes mobile homes much more eco-friendly and green than standard traditional homes. Also, as the Manufactured Housing Institute points out, since these manufactured homes are created in a factory and assembled on site, their transportation to a mobile home community creates little environmental damage. Especially compared to that of building a traditional home, where raw materials must be moved to and from the construction site daily.

#5 Living in a manufactured home park gives owners a sense of community

Another advantage of moving to a manufactured home is the sense of community that many owners feel within their neighborhood. Owners are able to have their own space – driveway, backyard and detached walls – but are still close enough to neighbors to fuel plenty of social interactions. According to the Manufactured Housing Institute, many of these land-lease communities offer social clubs, group activities, fitness amenities and caring neighbors.
