You get who you hired

There are freight brokers and stores out there that quote jobs like piano moving and then subcontract them out to other companies.  This sometimes works out for people, and sometimes they are surprised by who shows up at their door.  I have seen freight brokers use pictures of one company to sell their service and then send another in its place because it was cheaper for them, so they could make more money.  The movers that come could have lots or next to no experience, and there is no way for you to know the difference until it is too late. With Braymore, when you book with us, you are always getting Braymore, and if we do need to sub a part of your move-out, we will let you know.

Braymore tells you the real facts about insurance

Lots of companies tell you they are fully insured, and that is probably, but not always, true. They hope you stop asking questions or that nothing goes wrong on the job so that they do not have to back up that statement. Just because they are insured does not mean that you are!
The law of the land does not support this statement (fully insured), and the law limits the mover’s exposure on used items to $0.60 per pound unless additional insurance is purchased and declared on the bill of lading.  The average piano weighs about 500 pounds, which equates to $300 insurance, less deductible.  There are only a couple of pianos that weigh over 1000 pounds, which would be about $600 insurance.  You would be shocked how many items get shipped or moved with minimal insurance. How much is your piano worth to you?  Don’t assume that you are fully insured because the mover says he is.  The law says: If the mover doesn’t ask you the value of your piano and record it on the order when you book and you are not smart enough to ask and give it, you are not fully insured, you are just insured for default cartage values which is NOT fully insured.

Braymore is not a Household Mover

This is not a knock against household movers, as a number out there are very good at what they do: household moving. Unfortunately, many household movers advertise that they can move pianos to get household moving jobs.  This can especially be a problem when sales reps walk through your home, leaving you with the impression that it is not a problem.  In the piano moving world: He/she is not a piano moving expert, and household movers will often separate the piano move quotation from the rest of the job for this reason.  The information about the piano move is often not communicated properly to the sales rep and household movers. Even if it did, it does not always matter.  Most household movers do not have much piano-moving expertise or all the equipment necessary to do it smoothly, assuming they even have the necessary piano-moving equipment.  They rely on the extra manpower available for the household move to finish the job: think Red Green piano moving.  This is sometimes done successfully and sometimes an absolute disaster.  This sometimes also means your piano gets left behind or left on the main floor or in the garage.  I heard many people say it is the mover’s problem to figure it out, but when your house is closing, and you might lose possession of it if you are not out in time, whose problem is it really?  Many do not realize that many of the large movers will subcontract out the more difficult moves or their VIP customers to piano moving experts – like Braymore Piano Movers.


Anyone can put references on their website to say whatever they want, and we have many letters from customers too.  The problem is that I have seen websites with references to famous people or companies that would not know who they are, let alone recommend or touch them with a ten-foot pole.  The best references are from the people and companies you know and trust.  Ask around to people, stores and technicians you trust.  We could supply you with a list of major companies that use us regularly, but we are so confident in our piano moving, crane skill and reputation that if you ask around on your own, you will realize what we already know.  That Braymore is the right Mover for you!
