Why hire us as your profesional piano moving company?
Piano moving is likely the most technical category of moving there is. A piano is heavy, bulky and delicate all at the same time, and more importantly, very expensive. It is not recommended to take the task of moving a piano lightly, whether it is in-home, within a city or over long distances. If the move is attempted by people who are not trained and experienced in the task of piano moving, the risk of damage and loss can be very high. The potential savings by doing it yourself instead of hiring professional piano movers is very low. This is why we strongly encourage you to give us a call when you need a piano moved from one location to another.
We understand the emotional connection between a piano owner and their piano as well as that it is not a cheap purchase. We treat your piano with utmost care and appreciate the trust you place in our company when you hire us to do this job for you. We are the most trusted piano movers in the Greater Toronto Area as well as southern Ontario.

When done right with effective and experienced use of technique and apparatus, the herculean task of moving a piano becomes a fairly easy affair. We are the pro movers for all your moving needs, your mover of choice.
In the several years of professional services we have provided, we have helped move many different types of pianos
They’re the smallest in size and lightest of all. 2 movers are able to move it with ease regardless of the number of stairs along the way. Nonetheless, we apply the same amount of diligence while moving a piano, irrespective of its size
They’re the smallest of the uprights. The height is about a maximum of about 38 inches and a width of around 58 inches. It is a great choice for those who have limited space in their home, apartment or condo to fit such an instrument. 2 professional movers are more than enough to move it and 3rd mover may be needed if the piano needs to go to the second floor or the basement or basically any flight of stairs
A Console piano is slightly bigger than the Spinet, ranging more towards 40 to around 43 inches in height and 58 inches wide. The Console comes in a wide variety of styles and finishes. Similar to the spinets, they require 2 movers to maneuver it and an occasional third mover may be needed to move it up or down the flight of stairs.
A studio upright piano
The Upright piano is the tallest in the vertical piano category, ranging from 50 to 60 inches in height and an approximate width of about 58 inches. It is the most difficult to move as they may weigh as much as 800lbs or 370kgs. They definitely need 3 strong movers even when moving it within the same floor. 4 or even 5 movers may be needed to take it up or down a flight of stairs.
A Studio piano is mostly found in music schools, studios or other such professional classroom settings. Bigger than consoles, their height is around 45 to 48 inches and width of 58 inches. If the movers are strong and experienced enough, 2 of them would be able to move this piano. It is recommended though, to opt in for 3 movers for safety, especially if the piano is in mint condition.
The Baby Grand measures around 4 feet 11 inches to 5 feet 6 inches in height. It has an eye appealing aesthetic and requires delicate and experienced hands to move it safely. Legs are taken off first before it’s laid down on the dolly by pivoting to its flat side. In our experience, 3 to 4 movers may be needed depending on the requirements.
Parlor, Ballroom or Concert Grand
These are one of the biggest pianos and range from 5 feet 7 inches to 9 feet across. We come across these the least frequently but when we do, we make sure we have our most experienced piano movers to execute the move. Usually 4 – 5 movers may be needed for the task.
