How are Pianos Moved?

Teams: Pianos are moved with trained teams of 2-6 movers. depending on needs.
Piano Equipment: Movers equipped with appropriate piano equipment including – a piano dolly, piano skids, ramps, slings, moving pads, not to mention the knowledge for moving the piano safely.
Piano Techniques: Our movers are specially trained in a variety of piano moving techniques.
Risk Assessments: Good movers will provide damage risk assessments before moving a piano, giving you the option of proceeding or not.
Although professional movers cannot completely reduce the risks of damage, they will significantly reduce any risks.

Recently used Johnson Moving and got to say that they made my move less stressful than anticipated as the guys were so courteous and respectful. They helped me pack items into boxes with care. I have used this company before and will definitely use them again in the future if I had to move again. Thank you guys for your patience and all your help.
“Larry, Cody and Robert moved my elderly parents (Russell and Ann) in Virgil on April 18th. Can’t say enough about them. They were fabulous. So mindful and respectful of my parent’s wishes. Would highly recommend Johnson Moving.”
