Piano Removal
Get rid of your old piano in a few simple steps

Pianos can go anywhere from 500 to 1400 pounds. Hence, if you’re moving or have an old broken piano you want to get rid of, it might be pretty challenging to move it by yourself. That’s where EZ CleanUp comes into the picture and provides Piano Removal services. If you’re located in Philadelphia, you can call us up and get rid of your junk in a heartbeat.

How to Move an Upright Piano

These pianos are quite smaller than grand pianos, which makes them a bit easier to move around. Still, you are going to need some instructions to make sure everything is done safely.

Firstly, place it in a piano dolly and make sure you have one person at each end lifting it with you. Then carefully roll it out to the moving truck and put it down. Next, take it off the dolly and tightly tie it up to the side of the vehicle.

Afterward, you’re all ready to leave for your new destination. Just use the dolly for placing it again in its new home and let it sit where it should be.

How to Move a Grand Piano

Now we’re faced with the big boss of pianos. This is going to be a more significant challenge than upright pianos, but if we walk you through it, you don’t have anything to worry about.

You need to make sure the piano is away from any wall or other objects that might interfere with the removal. Cover the piano with three blankets and secure them with shrink wrap for extra protection.

Then, you remove the pedals to open up more room for pivoting to the side. You do the same with the left leg, tilt it onto the skid board, and then lift.

Once the piano is finally balanced, you can remove the rest of the legs and wrap them up in blankets to keep them protected. Now you can secure the piano to the board and roll it out to the truck.

Afterward, you can take out the dolly and secure it to the wall with some ties. Then you can drive to the following location with your piano being completely safe.

The procedure for taking it out is pretty similar, place it again on the dolly and roll it to its new home. Take it off the dolly and reassemble two of its legs and pedals. Finally, you can put the last leg into place after you tip it over.

 If you want to make sure that your piano stays safe until it arrives at your new destination, you’re going to need a lot of strength and technique. Keep on reading to find out some handy tips to do this!

Tips For Moving a Piano

  • You should pad the entire piano to prevent its parts from hitting the sides of the truck while on the road. You can use cloth or shrink-wrap; the latter is especially good for satin-finish pianos.
  • Use pads in certain parts of the piano to create leverage and prevent constantly lifting it to remove its legs.
  • The usage of a dolly and a grand board can be helpful to lift and secure the piano in your desired position safely.
  • Disassemble it by removing the legs and all the loose parts you can find. This way, you prevent any accidents from happening while on the road.
  • Wrap it up in blankets, and don’t leave any of its parts exposed to avoid unnecessary bumping.
  • Use straps to secure it to the side of the truck to make sure it doesn’t move.

Piano Removal Philadelphia FAQ

Should I tune my piano after moving it?

The removal shouldn’t affect the tuning in your piano. However, the new environment you’re placing it in can mess up its tuning. That’s why we recommend getting it tuned after a couple of weeks in its new place.

Can I get my piano removed if I’m not in Philadelphia?

We remove junk in Philadelphia and surrounding counties like Bucks, Montgomery, and Delaware.

How many people are needed to move a piano?

You can require about two or four people, depending on the piano size.

How can I make the process easier for you?

You can move everything out of the way of the piano, so we have enough space to work with and not damage anything.

Had a pretty big commercial job for Alex and Jay - they called ahead, were quick to get the work done, and the truck was filled in record time. Already re-booked them for round 2! Also, a much better price than the big-name competitors with no sacrifice in service.

These guys are the best! I’ve used them a few times before and I’m always happy with their service. I needed a ton of trash to get removed from my home and backyard by end of this week and I got same day service from them today. They called me within 30 mins of sending an online booking and they literally came an hour later. You can’t beat this type of service! And they were so fast, they got the whole job done in less that 20 mins while being so clean and respectful to my home. And honestly you can’t beat their prices! Just amazing customer service, great prices and clean efficient work.

This service was great. I had lots of junk to be removed. They worked very hard and quickly to get the work done. They charge by the truck load and I was concerned how many loads it would be. But they packed the truck so well you could not put another piece of paper on it. I got my money’s worth for sure. These men worked very hard to complete the job timely. I highly recommend this company.

Alex and Jose did a great job with the material removal. Not only did their service save me money from going to a dump paying the fee and renting a truck but also saved me time, which is more important. The area wasn't spotless when they left, and that shouldn't be the expectation with these services. All the debris was in the back yard and they had to go through an alley 30" wide to get the job done and did so, being pleasant and without complaint. I also appreciated the ability to move up the appointment to a day earlier than previously scheduled.
