You might be tempted to try to move your own piano, whether it’s a family heirloom or an attempt to impress the middle-school gym teacher who called you scrawny. But if you’re serious about moving that giant music-making machine, then you should know that you need a lot more than a few good friends and a day of grunting to get it to its new home. It takes an entire crew of professional movers and the right equipment to lift and transport such an enormous piece of furniture safely.

Unlike other moving companies that offer hourly rates, flatrate movers will give you a binding estimate for your move before they start packing up. The pricing structure depends on your location, the size and type of piano, and whether it requires special handling or a climate-controlled truck for transport.

It also offers a range of pricing plans to fit your needs, including single-item billing and not-to-exceed pricing. It can even move pets in certain locations. They can handle local, interstate, and international moves. Their employees receive specialized training for handling pianos.
