I had a Yamaha piano that I needed to move. I called South Bay and they answered on the first RING!! CAN you believe it!! Christina was so pleasant and accommodating. She explained it wasn't going to be too hard to move my piano to my new house with the stairs. I just didn't want it damaged and had some issues before when I first bought it. I still did some price shops and she had the best price for my move. She is insured and she made it very comfortable in my decision! Thanks Christina...if I move again you will be the one!

Tips & Advices
Many piano movers provide references. These references may come from former clients who are satisfied with the service they've received. In some cases, these references may come from piano technicians who have worked with these piano movers in a professional capacity.
The age and brand of a piano impacts moving costs because these details indicate its size and weight, and a piano's size and weight directly impact moving costs. Different brands are made with varying types of wood, and the wood used affects the weight of the piano. Older pianos made by brands such as Bosendorfer and Fazioli are typically heavier than more modern models.
The amount of people required to move a piano is dependent on the piano's size and weight. A small upright piano usually weighs between 200 and 300 pounds, and one of these instruments can be moved by two strong individuals. A grand piano can weigh more than 1,000 pounds, and moving one of these instruments requires as many as four or five movers.
To get a price quote for moving a piano, let the mover know whether the piano is an upright or a grand piano, and provide the mover with the piano's height, measured from the floor to its lid. In many cases, movers will be able to discern this information if you simply provide them with the age and brand of the piano. Share information regarding your current location and the destination to which the piano is being moved. If there are obstacles such as stairs, steps, or tight turns, these need to be communicated to the piano mover. You should also let the piano mover know the date and time of the move.
Pianos may be moved in several ways, and the method chosen will depend on the piano's size and design. A four-wheel dolly is often used, and this can do a tremendous job of simplifying the moving process. In many cases, a piano will need to have its legs and other parts removed before being mounted to the dolly.
