Piano’s are a wonderful instrument and look fantastic in any home, however you cannot simply pick up a piano and move it.
This is typically due to the size and weight of the average piano. A standard upright piano weighs roughly 400 to 900 pounds, and Grand pianos can weigh in at around 650 to 1300 pounds.
Incorrect moving of a piano can cause the piano significant damage and greatly decrease its value. The value of a piano can alter by a couple of hundred bucks to 500,000 dollars which depends greatly on the piano’s make, model, age and condition.
In many cases even fixing the piano is no longer possible after it has been damaged.
