Types of Pianos We Move

Grand Piano

The grand piano is probably the most well-known type of piano. It is a large, horizontal piano, with the strings and soundboard extending away from the keyboard towards the back. The strings are struck by hammers that are thrown upwards when the keys are pressed. Its size allows for a rich, resonant sound, and its action (the mechanism of the keys) provides excellent control for the player.

Baby Grand Piano

This is a smaller version of the grand piano, designed to fit into smaller spaces while retaining much of the grand piano's sound quality and aesthetic appeal.

Concert Grand Piano

This is the largest type of piano, specifically designed for use in concert halls due to its powerful, resonant sound. It can be over 9 feet long.

Upright Piano

Also known as a vertical piano, the upright piano has strings and soundboard running vertically, perpendicular to the keyboard. This allows it to take up less space than a grand piano, making it suitable for homes and smaller venues. The upright piano's action is situated below the strings, and gravity pulls the hammers back down after they have struck.

Spinet Piano

This is the smallest type of upright piano. It's compact and space-saving, but the smaller soundboard and shorter strings can compromise the sound quality to some extent.

Console Piano

This is a larger upright piano, with better sound quality than a spinet. It is a popular choice for homes due to its balance of size and sound quality.

Studio Piano

This is an even larger upright piano, often found in music studios and schools. It offers a good sound quality and is more durable than smaller upright pianos.

Player Piano

This is a piano that can play music automatically, using a mechanism that reads perforated rolls of paper or digital MIDI files. They can be either upright or grand pianos.

Toy Piano

Toy pianos are small pianos made for children. They often have fewer keys and may not be tuned to standard pitch. However, some professional musicians have used them in their compositions for their unique sound.

Silent Piano

A silent piano is an acoustic piano that includes an option to silence the strings and listen to digitally sampled sound through headphones. This is useful for practicing in a noise-sensitive environment.

Electric Piano

An electric piano generates sounds electronically, but it's different from a digital piano or keyboard because it uses analog technology. The most famous example is the Fender Rhodes.

Digital Piano

A digital piano uses digital sampling or synthesis to reproduce the sounds of an acoustic piano. It offers a range of features, such as different sounds, the ability to connect to a computer, headphones output, and no need for tuning.

Hybrid Piano

Hybrid pianos combine aspects of both acoustic and digital pianos. They often have the same type of action as an acoustic piano, but the sound is produced digitally. This offers the feel of an acoustic piano but with the benefits of digital technology.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Moving a Piano

Piano–the very word can strike terror in the hearts of even the most stalwart moving company. Maybe it’s because they’re so big and bulky. Maybe it’s because they’re so expensive. Or maybe it’s because they look really, really delicate.
Whatever the reason, if you’re moving a piano–whether it’s a grand piano or an upright piano–you want to be sure you’re doing it right. Here are some frequently asked questions about moving a piano, with answers from the pros.

There are many ways to damage a piano if you’re not careful. For example, you could scratch the finish, break a string, or damage the soundboard.

The best way to avoid damaging your piano is to hire a professional moving company that has experience moving pianos. Enter Perfect Moving. We are the experts when it comes to moving pianos–in fact, we have a team of Piano Movers who are specially trained in moving pianos.

We’ll wrap your piano in blankets and shrink wrap to protect it, then use a piano dolly to move it. We’ll also disassemble the legs and pedals if necessary and reassemble them at your new home.

The cost of moving a piano really depends on several factors, including the type of piano you have, the distance of the move, and whether you need to disassemble the legs and pedals.

However, this should not discourage you from moving your piano, at least not with Perfect Moving. We offer competitive rates and will work with you to create a moving package that fits your budget.

There are no hidden charges–what we agree upon is what you will pay. And to ensure that the final cost is within your budget, we’ll give you a free moving quote before we start the moving process.

The best time to move a piano is during the cooler months of the year, such as October through April. This is because pianos are sensitive to temperature and humidity changes and can go out of tune more easily in hot weather.

But if you must move during the summer, be sure to schedule your move early in the day or evening, when it’s not so hot. And be sure to protect your piano from direct sunlight and heat sources.

Whatever the time of year, when you move with Perfect Moving, we’ll take all the necessary precautions to protect your piano from weather damage. From start to finish, we’ll ensure your piano move is Perfect!

Maybe your new home isn’t ready yet, or maybe you’re downsizing and don’t have room for your piano. Whatever the reason, if you need to put your piano in storage, Perfect Moving can help.

We offer climate-controlled storage units that will protect your piano from extreme temperatures and humidity changes. And we’ll wrap your piano in blankets and shrink wrap to protect it further while it’s in storage.

We’ll also check on your piano regularly to ensure it’s in perfect condition, just like the day you stored it. And when you’re ready to move your piano out of storage, we’ll be there to help. We can even tune your piano before we move it into your new home.

Now that your piano is in your new home, there are a few things you should do to keep it in perfect condition.

First, if your piano was in storage, have it tuned. Pianos can go out of tune when in storage, so it’s important to get them tuned as soon as possible.

Second, keep your piano away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Sunlight can fade the finish, and heat can damage the soundboard.

Third, if you have an upright piano, keep it level. Upright pianos can go out of tune if they’re not level, so use a spirit level to ensure it’s in the correct position.

Finally, enjoy your piano! Play it often, and take care of it, and it will give you years of enjoyment.

If you have any questions about moving your piano or need help moving it, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Perfect Moving. We’ll be happy to help!
