As anyone knows who has ever moved house before, it can be a time-consuming, stressful, and extremely expensive experience. With that in mind, you may think trying to take on the responsibility with the help of some friends and family will reduce the costs and stress. However, that is not always the case. If you have large and expensive furniture and specialist items like pianos, it may be better to hire a Sevenoaks removal company. As they do that kind of work every day, every week, every year for a living, they are in the best position with the most experience to help you move house without causing injury, damage or too much money.
As pianos present unique issues, it is always best to look for a company that knows how to handle large musical instruments. If you still think you could do just as good a job, please consider the following benefits of hiring professionals.
They Are Fully Trained, Experienced and Equipped
It has already been touched upon but bears repeating that hiring a professional home removals team, especially one with experience moving antique pianos is a wise decision. Not only do they carry out that kind of work all the time, but they use the right equipment and techniques.
Moving Pianos is Not Always Straightforward
As is the case with moving any large piece of furniture, moving a piano can be a challenging task. Do you readily know how to safely manoeuvre a piano around a tight corner, for instance, or how to take one down a steep flight of steps? A professional removals company with piano moving experience does. The last thing you want on an already stressful day is your removals drawing to a standstill because you can’t get your piano out of the house.
Injuries and Damages Are Less Likely to Occur
Pianos, as you are undoubtedly aware, are extremely heavy and trying to move them without the right expertise, equipment or technique could cause injuries and damage. With a professional removal team that has the experience and the equipment to do the job properly, there are less likely to be any accidents.
It may not appear to be cost-effective, as you will have to pay out extra for a team with expertise in piano moving, as outlined above. However, what you need to pay upfront is only a fraction of what you may not pay out to cover the cost of damage to the piano or your old house when trying to move it out by yourself.
Just in case it wasn’t abundantly clear already when you hire professionals to move all the furniture, and belongings, including a piano from your house, your move will be a lot less stressful. You simply need to help navigate where things are going in the new place and do not need to worry about manoeuvring awkwardly shaped and sized items through inconvenient hallways, doorways, and down steep stairs. Leave all that to the professionals.
