Experts at moving pianos in Canterbury
The protection of your piano is our top priority and when it comes to moving them, no one does it quite like us. The process of moving a piano is rarely a simple task: it’s not just a large piece of furniture and most dedicated removal companies will have problems handling their size and weight. If you have a piano to move in Canterbury, no matter what size or type, it’s always wise to call a professional for help rather than attempt the job on your own. This is where our specialised expertise comes in: offering a highly tailored service to the type of piano while considering the conditions of the specific location.
A piano move, when done by professionals, should only take two people, unless there are stairs and awkward spaces involved; then we may send three. There are many reasons why our professionals are right for the job.
- We know exactly how to disassemble grand pianos, remove any awkward doors, pack and securely transport and assemble your piano in its new location.
- We bring skids, dollies, tools, straps, ramps, and padding for an efficient and safe removal, as well as boards that are able to move heavy pianos across floors without damage.
- We understand the sentimental and financial value of pianos, taking great effort to move them with care.
Not only are we well-versed in all aspects of moving pianos, we have worked for many years in the Canterbury and surrounding areas and have a good knowledge of many towns and villages across the South East.
Some of our more high profile moves include moving King George IV’s piano to the Royal Pavilion for a recent Channel 4 television show and transporting a Steinway to the Players Enclosure Lounge for Wimbledon tennis week. You can find out more about these stories and recent piano moves of interest in our blog.

Why choose dedicated piano movers over a standard removal company?
|Service||Kent Piano Movers||A Moving Company|
|Training||We have a full trained specialised team with many years of experience in piano moving||Unlikely to have any specific piano moving experience and even less likely to receive training for moving pianos|
|Equipment||Every piano move is different and requires many different size ramps boxes piano dollies and gizmos – we have all these on-board at all times||It is not feasible for moving companies to carry the right equipment around – it would take up to much room that would normally be required for more general moves|
|Specialist Equipment||Piano moves often require a move across grass or deep gravel and a purpose-built dolly is required||No specialist moving equipment|
|Transportation||Purpose-built vans that are specifically kitted out to carry and protect your piano||Standard moving vans with limited points to fasten large and heavy objects – or commonly hired vans that have no specialist moving apparatus|
|Insurance||We have the appropriate insurance that covers the move and any damage to home or contents up to £40,000 for a single item and £1 million in public liability cover||Many moving services lack dedicated insurance and would rarely have a single value that would cover the cost to replace a piano|
|Flexibility||Flexibility with time and availability, Kent Piano Movers can normally quote and move you piano within just a couple days||Moving companies are normally fully booked for weeks and cannot always offer the day you require|
