Why Are Pianos So Hard to Get Rid of?

Although pianos seem like they wouldn’t be any more difficult to move than any other heavy item, they are. There are many reasons that you should forgo moving it alone and hire a professional company like Junk-in-the-Box for your piano removal service.

They Are Super Heavy!

It isn’t just that pianos are heavy; they are super heavy. Unlike other types of furniture, pianos weigh hundreds to thousands of pounds due to their brass, hinges, and metal strings. They require much more heavy lifting capabilities than regular furniture.

They Are Awkward

Often, the reason that moving furniture is difficult is that you can’t get a good hold on things. Because of the way pianos are shaped, you can’t get a good center of gravity. When you lose grasp of them, it isn’t just the piano at stake – it is everything surrounding it.
