After you may have made a list of the professional users you intend using, contact each of them and let them explain to you how they intend to achieve the job after considering the terrain, road networks and any other possible risks that may be involved.

While selecting the moving company, inquire from each of them the length of time they have been in operation, how many successful moves they have made. Your piano is your valuable property that should not be entrusted to a mediocre posing as professional movers. If you are not in any way sure of their antecedents, visit the Better Business Bureau.

Another very important point to note is the time each potential mover has offered to complete the job. This of course depends on the accessibility to the piano and what equipments could be needed to convey them in the shortest possible time. If the terrain is very complex, such as flight of stairs, or areas cranes cannot have access to, more than one day may be required for the move since more effort is needed here.
