Experienced Ottawa Piano

Safe and professional piano moving by Ottawa’s best movers. If your move involves an upright piano, we are the Ottawa piano movers you can count on to get the job done right.

To avoid damage, it’s important to hire movers who are experienced in moving pianos. Many customers often overlook the potential damage that can be caused while moving a piano. Having your piano moved by amateurs can be a costly mistake. If not handled professionally, a piano can cause extensive and expensive damage to a home. If either the origin or destination has a hardwood floor or marble/porcelain tile, a piano can cause significant damage if not handled with care. Professional piano movers are equipped with the right piano moving equipment to get the job done right and without damage to the piano, your home, or the movers.

At First Rate Movers, we only move vertical (upright) pianos and only if a proper piano skid can be used. We will only move pianos if there are less than 6 stairs involved at either location. The piano must remain upright. We will not place a piano on its end under any circumstances.

There will be surcharges for moving pianos, depending on their size. These surcharges are in addition to the hourly rate being charged for the moving crew. Take a look at how much it may cost to move a piano in Ottawa.
