    We have a Kawai grand piano which needs to be moved to a new location in the same room. Distance is about 15 feet. The flooring is hardwood. The piano is sitting on coasters to protect the flooring. Could we move it this week? Before Thursday? Thank you Klementina


    Earlier I didn’t realize that pianos were so heavy! But now I know Piano moving is an art. It makes sense why my mother would prefer to have a professional handle moving her piano instead of letting me do it.
