Concert grand piano moving in Denver is a special skill
Several things make moving a concert grand piano a more interesting challenge in the Mile High City area than in other places. The first is our climate. Denver is notorious for its variable and potentially extreme weather. That variable often means both time and type, with sun and warmth turning to snow and sleet in a matter of an hour. Moving an instrument that weighs well over 1,000 pounds with over 1,000 parts, many which move, made up of wood and steel and brass and lots more wood is touchy on a good day. But when weather sets in, thing expand, contract, and move. When it is a half-ton cast iron soundboard, that is not a good thing.
Soundboards in a piano can crack, a fact few people know. Strings can snap causing internal damage, and the wood, well, hardwoods are tough but under pressure and weather and dry conditions they become fragile, brittle, and vulnerable. A piano mover that knows these idiosyncrasies about a concert grand will not only check the weather for a move, but will thorough and completely pad, wrap, and protect the piano so it does not experience thermal shock or any bounces along the way.
Moving an instrument of this immense size presents special challenges
A concert grand piano has to be disassembled as much as possible, but that usually involves the legs, harp, pedals, and a music rack if one is present. The legs are especially vulnerable to breakage due to the extreme weight on such a small area, just like the human ankle. The challenge is, that with a piano over 6’, usually over 8-11’ long and 5-6’+ wide, maneuvering such a large and delicate piece of furniture is not for the uneducated. Doorways, thresh holds, corners in hallways and stairs present particular challenge. And, the flooring it is going over is critical. It is very easy to break tile or damage wood floors with unsupported brass casters even on spider dollies. That is why all piano moves should only be done by someone who knows what they are doing.
