  • Plan the route to the removal van
  • Take into account any low-hanging or wall-mounted light fixtures
  • Ensure that you can move around any tight corners for good strategy
  • Remove tripping hazards, thus clearing the route to the van
  • Have furniture moving dolly, blankets, good quality tape, and loading straps available
  • Secure the lid of the piano so that it does not open when moved (NB: do not use tape directly onto the wood as it will damage it)
  • Wrap the piano in blankets to protect it from scuff damage
  • Prepares the rolls for transport on a straight plane.
