How will a Longueuil piano mover treat your piano?

The average grand piano costs anywhere between $8,000 and $25,000 while some can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Given their size, weight, and delicate nature, it is imperative that homeowners choose a comprehensive and moving service.

Discount Moving’s team of highly experienced professionals will take great care of your piano. If you have an upright piano, disassembly will not be required if it fits through your doorway. Depending on the weight and location within your property, it may be carried by hand or with the help of trolleys and other equipment.

Grand pianos are often too large to fit through a doorway, though. In this case, our experts will carefully disassemble the piano, starting with the lid and pedal lyre. Following this, they will remove the straight side leg and lower the unit to the ground. The piano can then be lifted onto a large furniture dolly while the remaining legs are removed. Final preparations include wrapping the piano and securing it to the dolly, which will prevent movement or surface scratches.

Our Longueuil residential movers will then load and unload the piano onto the truck with a lift gate while it will be strapped in place to ensure a smooth transit. Once we arrive at your new home, our experts will then (where applicable) reassemble the piano. This is essentially done via the reverse operation of the aforementioned disassembly.

How do Longueuil residential movers handle large appliances?

Large home appliances may include kitchen appliances and white goods, many of which are particularly heavy. Before the moving day, our experts can advise you on how to prepare your big appliances for the move. For example, freezers and refrigerators should be unplugged for 24 hours. 

For other appliances like washing machines, our experts can complete the disconnection process (or you can do it before our arrival). Once appliances have been disconnected and drained, they can be wrapped for protection during transit. Heavy-duty hand trucks with tapered toe plates can then be used to move appliances and load them onto the truck. All appliances will be secured in place while our experts will position them to promote even weight distribution while also taking the unloading order into account.

Once at your property, our experts can unload the appliances before placing them in the appropriate rooms and (where applicable) connect them to the mains supplies.
