Piano and Organ Moving Terms

Even if they are only being moved locally, most pianos and organs need to be transported by professional movers because of their size and weight. Piano and organ movers transport instruments both locally or over long distances. A professional service will be able to ensure that your instrument is delivered undamaged, no matter the distance of your relocation. Below are several helpful terms used to refer to different types of pianos and organs that movers transport.

  • Grand Piano – A piano distinguished by its horizontal frame and strings. Grand pianos are classified according to size. From the shortest, which are around four and a half feet, to the longest, which are from nine to ten feet long, they are referred to as petite, baby, medium, parlor, ballroom, and concert.
  • Upright Piano – A piano identified by its vertical cabinet and strings. Upright pianos are more compact and were designed to save space in residential homes.
  • Player Piano – A piano that moves its own keys according to a perforated roll of paper designed to produce music. The player piano was invented in the mid-nineteenth century.
  • Pipe Organ – An organ that produces sound by pushing air through pipes, each of which produces a single pitch. Pipe organs vary in size and number of pipes, but most are very large instruments housed in concert halls and houses of religious worship.
  • Electronic Organ – An organ that uses electronic keyboards to mimic the sound of a pipe organ. Electronic organs are well suited for residential use, as they are vastly smaller than traditional pipe organs.

    A piano or organ provides amazing music in a home, church, or theater. Getting them to your home or stage requires teamwork and expertise. A baby grand weighs over 500 pounds. Full-sized concert instruments weigh over 1,000 pounds. Some organs weigh over 400 pounds. Even the smallest instruments weigh over 300 pounds. A team of men and women help with the moving process. It involves securing components, wrapping the wooden surfaces, and tipping it only a dolly. When shipping antique or new instruments, secure the lid and fragile interior components. Once completed, cover all wooden surfaces in foam padding or thick blankets. This protects the wooden surfaces, and acts as a buffer if the furniture bumps walls during the move. Some instruments need their legs removed. The moving company takes care of this for you. They'll tip it onto the wheeled dolly and maneuver the item outside and on their delivery company's form of transportation. Local shipments don't require crating. For equipment being shipped long-distances, crating helps keep the item safe while on a plane or large moving truck. Professional piano and organ moving companies specialize in packing and shipping instruments long distances or just across town. When you call for a quote, you'll be asked for the brand and weight. They also need to know how far the instrument is traveling. Some local transportation companies extend discounts to new commercial or residential customers. A few companies also extend discounts if you have your instrument wrapped before they arrive. Be sure to ask about possible discounts when you call for a quote.
