Protecting Your Piano

Pianos are delicate instruments and require special care during the moving process. The Maumee Valley Movers team takes the protection of your piano seriously, and we work diligently to ensure no damage occurs.

Our team will typically move pianos into the truck unwrapped. We using door jamb pads and other industry equipment to ensure neither your home nor the piano incur damage during the moving process. Once in the truck, the Maumee Valley Movers team will cover the piano to protect it while in transit. We also offer shrink wrapping upon request.

When moving a baby grand, our piano movers will take off the legs of the instrument in order to transport it on its side. Our goal is to protect the integrity of your instrument, so we will never “keyboard” your piano, or remove the keys of the piano before moving. We also will never use the built-in casters on your piano when moving it because these wheels can scratch soft flooring and break under pressure.

Maumee Valley Movers is fully insured to move any type of item, including pianos, and does have a reimbursement rate should any damage occur. You may also purchase additional insurance when moving your piano. For more information on our insurance coverage, visit our FAQ page.

  • 4-wheeled carts, which pianos are placed on before being rolled out of the home
