Nice Man BIG Van, our reputation for piano removal service is second to none.

In most cases, piano moving is a 2-person job. We will deploy 2 strong men to move an upright piano using our piano wheels ground to ground. An additional handler will be put on the job if there are more than 2 step involved or if access is awkward. With a wealth of experience as long distance piano movers, you can be sure that you piano is in safe hands.

What happens on the day?

Before we attempt to move your piano, we will carry out an access assessment. On moving day, our professional piano moving team starts by removing the keyboard cover, foot board and top board. These items are then removed and wrapped in blankets, and strapped securely into the removals van so there’s no danger of anything falling onto the piano during transit. The instrument itself is then wrapped in shrink wrap to protect the wooden surface during transit on our piano wheels to the waiting van.

Once your piano is safely in the van, we will wrap the instrument in blankets and strap everything down securely to prevent any possibility of movement during transit. Every possible care is taken to make your piano’s journey as secure and safe as possible. Thanks to Nice Man BIG Van’s unrivalled reputation as long distance piano movers, you can be sure that your piano and any other belongings will reach their destinations in perfect condition.

Once your piano has reached the end of its journey with us, we always recommend that you get the instrument tuned. Remember that every piano will need time to adjust to the new environment as it adjusts to a different level of humidity, so book the piano tuner a few weeks after transportation.

A precise operation

At Nice Man BIG Van we understand that moving any piano is a precise operation that takes great skill and the appropriate level of manpower. That’s why we invoice an additional £60 charge for piano removals on top of the hourly rate for one, two, three or more handlers to move the piano.

Our professional piano moving team appreciate the intricacies of a valuable yet fragile musical instrument such as a piano, and is trained to move the instrument with the delicate handling required. With our expert piano movers you can be rest assured that your piano is in the best possible hands.

Here are a couple of our recent removal service reviews:

I cannot speak highly enough of the service I received from this company. The guys that turned up to move us were very polite, very hard working and extremely efficient. They took great care with all of our possessions and even took apart our sofa and reassembled it at the other end. I highly recommend this company.

The team kept me informed of arrival time and actually bought the time forward for me. They were very pleasant and they even went the ‘extra mile’. They were also very clean and tidy and helped me locate the kettle, tea and coffee!!!”
