Fresh Start – The Moving Crew: One-Piece Movers in Arlington

Piano Movers
One-Piece Moving is a difficult task that requires herculean strength and a cautious slow journey that should not be left up to untrained one-piece movers for damage to be avoided. While upright pianos such as, studio upright, spinet, console and upright grand generally need no disassembly, baby grand, grand, and concert grand pianos need the legs removed. Both kinds of pianos need to be well wrapped and placed on a piano board or skid board and then on a piano dolly.

Each one-piece move is unique- sometimes there are long staircases to be traversed or the piano has to go through a 2nd story patio door all these differences factor into an estimate that will vary for each move.

Piano Tuners
Piano tuning requires the maintenance of 250 strings, which are held under a combined tension of 15 to 20 tons; it is a complex task that needs a very experienced piano technician to do it right. The tuning pins that the strings wrap around are set strongly into a dense wooden block. The pins need a special wrench to turn them up or down resulting in increasing or decreasing tension on the string changing its pitch- it will generally take 90 to 120 minutes, depending on the experience of the tuner, to do a complete tuning. The longer it’s been since the last tuning will increase the amount of time needed to get the piano in tune. It is suggested by most experts, that you should tune a piano 2 times a year as humidity and temperature changes over the seasons will cause the piano to go out of tune.

Most Common Piano Repairs
Sticky or Broken Key Fixed
Sticky or broken key meaning the note won’t play or the key when pressed won’t come back up is the most common repair call. There could be several reasons why a note doesn’t play such as, humidity can cause the felt bushing against the front rail pin to swell causing the key not to strike, hammers that are too close together causing them to rub will keep one key from striking, and even foreign objects- coins, pencils, toys, and any food scraps that get stuck between the keys cause a myriad of problems.

The fix is usually easy, tightening down the screws will dispel the irritating noise. Of Course, other reasons abound for a piano’s poor performance and only an examination will determine the cause.
