Pricing

Vertical Piano

Within 30 miles of the BCS area

$159

The price of $159 assumes there are no significant obstacles, such as a flight of stairs or a narrow hallway that must be negotiated.  This is a first floor move.  There should be no more than 4 exterior steps. This price covers 80% of all local moves.   This is for a spinet, console, or studio piano and does not include full uprights, whose height is greater than 48″

Baby Grand Piano

Within 30 miles of the BCS area.

$259

This price is for a first floor to first floor move with no major obstacles in our path.  This also assumes that there is sufficient room around the piano to disassemble the grand and tilt it vertical onto the grand board.  This only includes grand pianos which are less than 6 foot in length.  Grand pianos between 6′ to 6’6″ cost $309.   Grand pianos longer than 6’6″ will need to be quoted individually, as they require special considerations.

Piano Recycling & Removal

FREE - or reduced cost

Let us recycle/upcycle your used piano

We can help to find a home for your piano.  If your piano is serviceable we’ll take it for free and find it a new home right here in the Brazos Valley.  When we receive a donated piano, assuming that it is serviceable, we give it away for free to someone in the community who needs a piano.  We’ve relocated more than a dozen free pianos to new homes in our local community.  If your piano is not in good working order we may recycle or upcycle your piano – using its old parts to breathe new life into an older instrument.   Your old piano could also be upcycled and turn into art.

If your interested in converting your piano to a bookshelf, a bar, or some other unique creation let us know.  We’ve helped customers remove the strings and harp and make furniture out of their old, nonfunctional piano.

Piano removal costs generally run from FREE to $200 depending on the level of difficulty.  Vertical Pianos generally cost $50 to $100 dollars.

Long Distance Moves

We offer long distance moving services to any location within the triangle of Dallas/Fort Worth, San Antonio and Houston.

All our movers are trained and have worked with us in the past.  We don’t use day labor or temporary workers to move your piano.  Our moves are supervised by a master piano technician.  We have specialty equipment for moving pianos safely and our trailers are designed specifically for moving pianos safely and securely.
We inspect pianos before and after we move them.  Pianos can be infested with mice and/or insects.  It is important that a mover inspects a piano before moving unwanted guests into your home.  We also inspect pianos for scratches and dings before we move – to make sure we are accountable to the pianos condition.   We take our time to insure that your piano arrives in its new location in the exact same condition.
Our price is competitive – generally within 20% of a local mover’s cost.  However, we offer a better level of service and piano moving know-how.  We offer competitive pricing for any move within Central Texas and can match price quotes from reliable piano movers.
Save 20 dollars on a regular tuning and 30 dollars on a pitch raise tuning when you book a piano move and a piano tuning together.
