As expert furniture movers in Brisbane, we regularly move heavy and cumbersome items for our clients, such as pianos and pool tables. These are the sort of items that should be left to specialist removers, because you can not only damage them, but you can also injure yourself if you don’t know how to move them safely.
So first of all, let’s take a look at how specialist piano movers can save you a lot of stress and worry by transporting your family heirloom safely to its new location. Then we can take a quick look at why you should also leave pool table removals to the experts as well.
Tips from piano movers in Brisbane
With large upright pianos weighing upwards of half a ton, to move one of these monsters you will need at least two, if not three or more people. Make sure that you secure the lid of an upright piano to prevent it from opening and wrap it in blankets to protect it from damage.
You will also need heavy duty lifting straps and a large furniture dolly that supports the weight of the piano. Remember that an upright piano has an off-kilter centre of balance, so it can easily tip over when you are moving it to the truck. This is why professional piano movers are so popular!
Tips for safe pool table removals in Brisbane
Whilst an upright piano can be moved whole, you can’t do the same for a pool table. These need to be dismantled before transportation, so you need to have an idea of how to take your table apart.
You will need the right tools, because you have to remove the legs, the six side pockets and rails, and the felt. Make sure that you keep all of the bolts and screws and label everything, so you know how to put it all back together.
As with moving a piano, you need to make sure that the dismantled table will fit through doorways and ensure that it is secured properly in the truck. Moving a piano or pool table up and down stairs and through tight doorways can be frustrating, which is why most people leave it to the experts.
