Jon Kelly of The Piano Shop Bath was recently interviewed by Graham Seaman on BBC Wiltshire radio, to share his insight on the skill of piano removal. Jon is also the manager of the Piano Removal Company, that provides removal services to Wiltshire and the whole of the South West region. All of our customers here at the Piano Shop Bath will also have benefitted from the experienced team of the Piano Removal Company, with all pianos including free UK delivery.
As it turns out, it is not uncommon for people who are not in the piano removal business to try their hand at removing a piano. However it is quite a difficult task in terms of physical labour, and the lack of necessary equipment needed to manoeuvre a piano through doorways and up steps. Jon explains how a customer is getting a wealth of experience and professionalism when using the services of the Piano Removal Company,
‘They are very awkward items to move, and it’s actually one of those jobs that you can’t go to a college to learn how to do, it’s very much on the job training.’
‘We’re working with angles, weights, stairs, steps, tricky conditions when it’s raining…. So people pay us a fee to move a piano, and the fee is actually quite reasonable, comparative to the risk. We’ve never made an insurance claim, so that’s a good reflection (of our service).’
The Piano Removal Company moves pianos that have little monetary value to pianos worth £120,000, like the Steinway concert grand piano in Bath Abbey. Every piano gets the same high level of service, as it ensures the job is completed in the most efficient and risk free way,
‘The key to piano moving is the detail in moving them… we’re very careful in not damaging ourselves or the customers property, so it has to be done very efficiently.’
