Custom Crating

What do you do when you need to ship something a far distance and have to send it through the standard shipping channels and carriers?

You need it crated right to make sure it will survive the journey safely.

Being in the piano moving business for over 40 years, Braymore gets asked this question a lot, as not all piano moves are for a short local distance. Depending how you are shipping it and with who will vary this answer. Do you need a custom wood crate or would a recycled cardboard one do? There are pros and cons to both.

Braymore unboxes more new pianos than any other mover in our area. Braymore has the ability to rebox your piano in a manufacture crate or build a custom wood one for your specific needs.

We receive re-boxed pianos from all over North America and we have seen first hand what “to do” and “what not to do”. When getting your piano packed up for shipping, you want someone who has seen it all and can pack your piano the way it was originally designed to ship by the factory.
