This is calculated by the size of the piano, access on both ends of your move, which include stairs or multiple flights of stairs, length of walk, turns, landing or corners on stairs, tightness of stairways, entrances or hallways and other obstacles like trees, hills, small cliffs, and rivers – our piano movers battled them all!

Not every piano is equally difficult to transport
Generally speaking, every move which includes piano is complicated in its own way. But Piano Movers Toronto can handle them all.
Main floor to the Main floor
When it comes to the easiest piano move, that would certainly be the main floor to main floor moves. These moves, if you have well-trained movers, can be done really quickly in just 10-15 minutes. The main floor to main floor move may consist of up to a short 4-6 step straight flight outside the home.
These moves also tend to be very quick as well and usually fall within our minimum charge with easy access, from one room to another on the main floor, garage into the home or up or down a flight within the home.
Moving a piano from the basement
Now, this one belongs in the category of a very difficult piano moves. It is mostly due to the fact that most houses have had some renovations since the piano went down and the access is tighter. Any move where a flight of stairs involves a partial landing or pie-shaped step on a turn or where there is a tight turn anywhere along the stairs – top, middle or bottom can be difficult. Curving, low clearance and short landings also bring their own challenges.
All of these situations described will require a minimum of 3 team members on your move. It’s important when booking your move you give us the most accurate description of your access at both locations. Where necessary, pianos with difficult access may require a waiver for both the piano and surrounding structures in order to proceed with the move.
