Why You Should Hire a Professional to Move Your Large Purchases

Piano Moving

Hiring a professional mover to help with your home or business purchases can ensure a smooth and stress-free experience. Particularly when it comes to large items, you’ll need professional help due to the sheer size and weight. On top of that, they can be fragile too, in the case of glass or antique pieces.


Pianos are very heavy and often come in unique shapes. They are not easy to move, especially if there are stairs involved. If you try to take on moving your piano yourself, you are putting both the piano and yourself in danger.

It doesn’t take much for the piano to slip out of your hands and end up chasing you down the stairs. Of course, if you don’t lift properly, you could throw out your back sending you to the hospital. Even if you manage not to injure yourself, if the piano slips out of your hands, it could become damaged.

Some pianos weigh more than 1,000 pounds. If you don’t have a team of 4 to 6 strong movers, you may not be able to lift the piano and move it properly. This could easily lead to injury or damage.

A professional piano mover will not only provide the strength necessary, but they will also provide a team of movers used to working with each other. They will use professional techniques to ensure the piano and the workers remain unharmed throughout the process.


A moving service knows how to keep heavy machinery safe. If you’re moving to a new location with your existing appliances, they will disconnect everything—even gas-fueled models—without causing leaks or electrical issues. They can easily secure the hoses, cables, or vents that belong with the appliances and prepare them for safe travel. Upon arrival, they can help hook it all back up again.

If you need to move appliances up or downstairs, it’s hard to do so safely. These appliances can weigh anywhere from 75 to 150 pounds. Luckily, professional movers know how to move heavy objects safely. Their movers have the strength and equipment to prevent any injury, from a herniated disk to a stubbed toe.


Planning a move, especially one with lots of conference room furniture or fancy dining room tables, can be overwhelming. Professional movers know the optimal ways to pack, disassemble (if needed), and transport your furniture, as well as how to navigate hallways and stairwells so those items stay safe and protected. Knowing that your furniture is in safe hands will ease your mind on moving day.

A moving company is held accountable for the move and works hard to ensure all of your furniture arrives safely. Relocating without the help of experienced movers puts all the responsibility solely on your shoulders, adding to the stress of moving day. This accountability is compounded when it involves expensive corporate furniture or valuable antiques. Rely on the prompt, professional service afforded by a mover to expedite and simplify the moving process.
