Are you sitting across from your much-beloved baby grand piano and positively dreading the idea of moving it from its current location? You probably have an upcoming move in the Portland area, and for that you’re likely excited. A new place means new opportunities for exploration and decoration.
But moving a piano or antique furniture is just an entirely different ordeal. You take a breath, shuddering at the thought. You live on the third floor of your apartment building. You start to wonder to yourself, “How did I ever get this thing in here?”
Before you consider bribing your friends for a Saturday of back-breaking labor, give us a call at Portland Move. We bring the skill, training, and equipment necessary to move pianos and antique furniture in an efficient and safe way. Allow Portland’s favorite movers to move your antique furniture or piano.
Let Portland Move Handle Transporting Your Piano and Antique Moves
Pianos and antiques are items of high value, and when moving them from one home to another, they need special attention and care so as not to become damaged or lost in transit. We know you probably spent a lot of money on those items, and we believe in caring for them as deeply as you do. By hiring professionals to move your piano or antique furniture in the Portland, OR area, you’re ensuring that no damage befalls your most-valued possessions.
Pianos can weigh hundreds or even thousands of pounds. They can also cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Attempting to move an instrument of this weight and size could leave you with a pulled back, a smashed toe, or worse. Transporting these beloved instruments is dangerous work.
Not only is it unsafe for you and whatever loved ones you’ve roped into the process, but you can cause a lot of damage to your piano during the move. Pianos are delicate instruments at their core. If they’re moved without proper training and equipment, you could damage their legs, keys, strings, and more. On average, pianos have over 12,000 parts. That’s 12,000 tiny, expensive pieces that you can just trust the professionals to move.
It’s easier, safer, and will end up being cheaper to allow our trained moving crew to transport your piano to your new destination. Our crews will ensure your piano is handled with care, so neither it nor your walls & floors have to sustain any damage during your Portland-area move.
By the same token, antiques can also weigh a lot and have the propensity to be damaged if not properly prepared for the journey ahead. Think of your antiques like loved ones. You wouldn’t toss your loved one into the back of a pickup, cross your fingers, and hope for the best.
We pack and wrap all your antiques using professional techniques and packing materials. We prepare antique goods for every possibility – ensuring they arrive unscathed. It doesn’t matter whether your antiques are small, like jewelry and accessories, or larger items such as sculptures, paintings, and grandfather clocks. We have the experience to move then with great care so the items themselves, as well as the surrounding environment, remain safe and free of unnecessary damage.
