There are several types of pianos. Knowing which kind you have will greatly assist your Tampa Bay piano mover in providing you an accurate quote. Vertical or wall pianos have four primary sizes and can range in weights between 425 pounds to over 900 pounds!
Piano movers in Tampa, Clearwater and St. Pete all agree, the 900 pound pianos are absolutely no fun to move. Having said that, if you are in the Tampa Bay area and need a behemoth of a piano moved; Dave’s Piano Moving Services can assist.
The following are the height dimensions for vertical pianos. Measure at the back of the piano, from the floor to the very top.
- Spinet 34” – 39”
- Console 40” – 44”
- Studio 45” – 52”
- Behemoth > 52”
While your Tampa piano mover needs the height dimension in a vertical piano; to move a grand piano, the length dimension is important. There are a few sizes of grand pianos which range in weight from 600 to over 1000 pounds!
The piano’s length dimension is measured from the tip of the keys (key slip) to the nose of the piano. The following are the various sizes of grand pianos.
- Baby Grand 4’7” – 5’4”
- Parlor Grand 5’5” – 5’11”
- Grand 6’ – 6’7”
- Semi Concert 6’8 – 7’11
- Concert >8’
In Tampa, piano movers use three key factors to calculate the final cost of your piano moving expense. Those three main factors are type, distance and difficulty.
Moving a piano in Tampa Bay often requires your piano moving specialist to contend with steps or stairs. Sharing this information is absolutely critical in obtaining an accurate quote.
Lastly, in some cases the sale of a house and a delay in the purchase/building of a new home requires the piano to be stored for a period of time.
