Moving a piano is both a science and an art form.  It requires specialized equipment, experience and knowledge of what will and will not work,  in order to protect the piano, the mover, and the home.  An upright piano has around 5,000 moving parts and can weigh up to 800 lbs.  A grand piano has an average of 10,000 moving parts and can weigh up to 1300 lbs.  It's easy to see why moving a piano is both a delicate and potentially dangerous operation.

Rick Howard is known as The Piano Mover™ for good reason.   He has over 30 years of experience, the physical size, and the calm, gentle temperament that make him one of the most recommended piano movers in the area.  He can handle the simple move of a small upright piano efficiently and economically, but specializes in moving grand pianos and moves that involve stairs or multiple floors.
