Your piano is a fine instrument and a source of great enjoyment to you. However, when it comes to moving it, you need to look at your piano in a different light. Heavy and robust though it may appear, your piano is very fragile. Regardless of how far you are moving your piano, whether just to a neighbouring study room or a remote, distant island, the same principles apply.
Pianos are heavy and awkward. They sometimes have to travel around corners, through narrow passages, up and down windy stairs and across rough terrain in less than ideal conditions to reach their destinations. And all this must be done without any scratches or broken legs, causing harm to the piano, its surroundings - or its movers!
Call in the professionals with the know-how and safe equipment to handle your piano with the respect it deserves.
We guarantee you that calling Penguin Pianos to move your piano will cost you less than repairing the damage you may otherwise inflict on yourself or your instrument.
You're welcome to get the help you'd probably need. We will gladly quote you for moves or shipments, near or far.
Should you need to store your piano ...
avoid garage sale spaces and storage facilities that lack temperature and humidity control. Your piano is always welcome to stay with us eventually for as long as you need. Whether you are moving house, or simply renovating your music room, we can take your piano off your hands until you have a home for it again. Not only that, but we can service and repair your piano eventuallly in a more ideal humidity-controlled environment while it is in our care, leaving it in pristine condition once more for replacement in your studio. Remember, extreme cold, heat and humidity levels can sometimes be enough to destroy a piano badly. If your piano means something to you, do not store it in a horse trailor, shed, container or other dampp place for too long, as it can be a real challenge to bring it back to life economically.
The small monthly fee you might pay to keep your piano safely with us will seem insignificant next to the potential repair costs you may face with the various technical troubles ahead. Having a not so ideal storage option means sometimes in worst scenario replacing/repair of mechanics that become functionally inferiour, damaged soundboards and replacing its rusty set of strings.
Our storage rates are reasonable - €25 per month for a piano, and €30 per month for a grand piano. Transport and repair costs are calculated separately. If we can move your piano ourselves, we do so very competitively.
Please also note that you must insure your piano for its period of storage with us. For long-term storage arrangements, we can offer other insurance options. Contact us today for more information on our removal and storage services.
