Moving a piano to a new residence or within a home is never an easy task but trained professionals can make it feel like a breeze. At MVM Moving we use our specialized equipment and protective pads to ensure that your home and items are protected from damage.

Pianos are notoriously difficult to move because they can weigh several hundred pounds and have delicate construction. When it comes to moving your piano, it’s essential you hire professionals like MVM Moving to do the job right and protect your instrument.

Our crew can carry pianos up to 800 pounds, including:

  • Upright pianos
  • Player pianos
  • Baby grand pianos
  • Organs

At this time, we do not offer grand piano moving services.

MVM Moving can tackle a wide variety of piano moving circumstances, including:

The Piano Moving Process

It takes a highly skilled team of movers to correctly transport a piano without damaging it, or the home it’s moved out of and into.

When moving your piano, the MVM Moving team starts by covering doorways with door jamb pads to protect your home or business. We may also use piano ramps to cover porch steps and four-wheeled carts to roll the piano through your home and onto the truck.

The size and type of your piano and your home will determine how the piano is moved. Upright pianos can typically be moved in an upright position, for example, while we normally move a baby grand piano on its side after taking the legs off. MVM Moving will never depend on your instrument’s built-in casters and we will never “keyboard” (remove the keys) from your piano.

Typically a crew of three trained piano movers will carry your instrument into the moving truck unwrapped, at which point we cover the piano. If requested, the team can also shrink wrap your piano.

How Much Does it Cost to Move a Piano?

The cost of moving a piano with MVM Moving varies with the moving circumstances and size of the piano. In general, we charge an hourly moving rate, plus an additional piano surcharge. This surcharge can vary based on the size and weight of the piano and difficulty of the move. For a more specific price quote, call us at 844-424-MOVE (844-424-6683).


MVM Moving is fully insured to conduct professional home and business moving. This universal insurance policy covers moving pianos, and allows for a reimbursement rate if your instrument is damaged. Additional cargo protection coverage is also available for purchase.
