    With years of experience navigating the five boroughs, New York State, and the tri-state area, Samba is the most trusted piano movers in NYC.

    Piano Moving Services for Upright Pianos

    The construction of upright pianos, spinets, consoles, and studio uprights makes them lighter but more compact. While they may be easier to maneuver in a staircase and fit into a truck, these are delicate instruments that must be kept upright or disassembled for moving. We understand how to pack and move an upright piano and can provide safe piano storage during the moving process.

    Your Trusted Grand Piano Moving Company

    Grand pianos require custom care and experienced piano movers who take the utmost care to protect your instrument. With safe packaging and the best moving equipment, Samba professional piano movers will properly transport grand pianos, petite grand pianos, baby grand pianos, parlor grands, and even ballroom or concert grand pianos so that they arrive in perfect condition.

    Moving a piano of this size requires removing certain parts and reassembling them when they arrive at your new home or venue. Samba’s skilled piano movers will remove the lid, lyre, and legs as needed, and then secure the keyboard and wrap individual pieces. Grand pianos are usually transported on their sides, using a special dolly, and then strapped securely into the moving truck.

    Local Piano Moves

    Samba’s local piano movers know how to manage the complexities of moving in and around New York City and the Tri-State area. Whether you’re relocating the smallest of uprights or a 1000-lb concert grand, our teams take the utmost care to dismantle delicate parts, wrap and pad the piano, load it onto the truck, and transport it smoothly for complete peace of mind for your local moves.

    Long-Distance Piano Moves

    Many challenges face piano movers in NYC, but moving a piano across the U.S. requires additional care and expertise. Changes in temperature and humidity can affect a piano during long distance moves to or from other climates.

    Samba Moving uses climate controlled vehicles that minimize the environmental changes that can damage or even crack a piano board on a cross country move. Depending on the type and weight of the piano, we will determine ahead of time what specialized equipment and packing materials will be needed to navigate flights of stairs and safely load and unload your piano on moving day.

Once the piano is on the truck, we’ll secure it with straps to prevent movement during transit. After its journey, you can rest assured that it will be properly reassembled and ready for tuning.

    Proper Equipment and Materials

    Piano moves require specialized equipment like wide base piano dollies, padding, floor protection, ramps, hydraulic lifts, and more.

    Tornike, George, Beka were awesome! Super friendly and professional. Showed up on time, moved everything quickly and gently. We have a huge couch that hardly fit through the door, but they got it into our new apartment no problem and with no damage. They made our moving process pain free and for a good price, I’d highly recommend them.

    Tornike and George did a fantastic job. Quick, professional and they took great care of my things. Samba’s pricing was significantly more affordable than competitors and their service didn’t disappoint. I’ll definitely go back to Samba for my next move.

    The contractors from samba were great. One of their names was Joe. They did a great job at wrapping up all of the furniture we needed to move from my grandparents home to my own including a treadmill and a grandfathers clock. Would use again and would highly recommend using Samba Moving!

    A big 5 stars! Thank you so much... Joe and Nicholas’ team did a perfect job and in the best way - I apologize as I don't how to write the first name of the third person who was absolutely amazing as well. They even gave their best shot to move a quite big piece of furniture through the stairs. Super helpful and polite; no stress but fun instead. They took very good care of all my belongings and I cannot thank them enough for that.

    Absolutely amazing! I loved my experience with Samba Moving! Erika helped my mom and I get everything in order prior to the move, she was very nice and responsive - answered every question we had along the way. And moving day was a breeze! Joe and Nicholas did a LOVELY job, they were extremely friendly and really took care of my things. I could not be happier. Usually I have awful, exhausting, stressful, and anxiety-inducing moving days - not this time. I was so happy with their attitudes towards the job, they were great!

    One of the best moving experiences I have ever had! Kristin was amazing to work with prior to the move. She was very pleasant, professional, quick to respond and produce the necessary documentation. Tornike and his crew were kind, on time, professional and packed up my apartment in no time. They broke down and rebuilt all of my furniture all before 12pm that same day! 10/10 for me and I will most certainly use and recommend them to anyone! Moving has never been so simple!
