Who is the best piano movers?

Everyone wants the best. But how does anyone determine who is the best piano mover? There is no piano moving school or certification for piano movers. Everyone claims they are the best choice and expect you to take their word for it. Different people have different experiences and biases against moving companies. But how do you really know who is the best?

Let’s make a simple list to work with:

  • Years of experience?
  • Source of training?
  • Reputation?
  • References & Reviews?
  • Do they cover all parts of the industry?
  • What else do they do?

Source of piano moving training?

Braymore Piano Movers started with some fantastic piano movers, which is how they quickly became the largest piano movers in the area. They learned and adapted, creating some of the best methods for moving pianos. Since there is no school for piano moving, Braymore teaches all its movers in-house the best methods and techniques for moving pianos. One of the great things about being the largest is that, over time, you have more opportunities to encounter almost every type of situation. This gives the company even more experience in refining these technics into industry-proven standards.

References and Reviews?

Braymore has always been a firm believer in getting references from non-biased parties. Never take the mover’s word for it, including our own. Ask around and see what others are saying. Google and Homestar reviews are a great starting place.

Do they do everything in that industry?

Braymore Piano Movers offers more piano moving services than any other company in our area.

Braymore does not directly tune or sell pianos, as these are considered separate professions in the piano industry. This would also be a conflict of interest to all the piano stores and piano tuners that we do work for.

What else do they do?

While a few moving companies claim to move ONLY pianos, most movers do other work besides piano moving. This is because there is not enough work for them only to move pianos.

Great piano movers are constantly asked to move other items once customers see how careful they are with the piano. Braymore is no exception. Our specialty moving and crane rental divisions were born from our piano moving service. Customers loved our service so much that they pushed for other niche items like pianos for which they had trouble finding a good moving service.
