Why Modern Piano?

THE TOP 5 QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR LONG DISTANCE PIANO MOVER


Will you be using local or 3rd party movers?

Modern Piano Moving does not use local or 3rd party movers. Our crews are full-time employees, professionally trained, and covered by liability and workers compensation insurance.

Are your trucks climate controlled?

Our trucks are set up with a reefer system similar to food trucks. We are continuously controlling the climate. Heating, cooling, and humidity levels are based on Steinway recommendations.

Are your trucks specifically designed to move pianos?

From custom cargo control, air-ride suspension and lift-gates, to insulated truck bodies, you can be assured your piano will be safe and sound.

How many times will my piano change equipment?

There is never a need to change equipment because we handle 100% of the move. Your piano will arrive on the same equipment we placed it on at the pickup.

Can I insure my piano at the current market value or is it covered as contents of a truck?

We cover each piano individually with no deductible. We provide a standard coverage for each piano based on its size. You may customize that coverage to suit the current market value of your piano.

OUR EQUIPMENT – PROTECTING YOUR INSTRUMENT AND YOUR PROPERTY

All-terrain and reinforced in our shop before they’re used for your move. Our dollies feature six 9” air filled tires. The center axle is set 1” lower to offer a 360° turning radius allowing us to negotiate corners in virtually any home. The tires won’t pick up dirt or debris making them excellent for use on hard flooring.

 

THE SAFETY OF YOUR PIANO IS PRIORITY #1!

We employ a full-time Master Craftsman to make our own piano boards and reinforce all of our dollies.
Using a solid piece of wood instead of two shorter pieces, provides more stability and less chance of breakage.

INSURANCE AND VALUATION

Modern Piano Moving is fully insured and all of our crews are covered under workers compensation insurance.

Every piano is covered, individually, according to the current market value. Our affordable coverage is only $5 per each $1,000 of value.


STORAGE - CLEAN, SECURE, CLIMATE CONTROLLED

Electronic security including fire and smoke protection is hard wired and monitored 24 hours a day by a central station. We also run 24-hour video surveillance.


Your piano will never be wrapped in plastic or shrink wrap! Climate control works best when there is air flow. Using plastic wraps can trap moisture and cause warping.

Our experience with the team was very positive. They were professional, neat and timely. They communicated plans for arrival, explained steps we needed to take to prepare, and handled our grand piano with great care. Ricky Saunders was on the team for both pickup and delivery. All members were experienced, pleasant and careful. Misty answered all our questions and facilitated the scheduling. We couldn't be more pleased! Thank you.
