Transporting an upright piano on its back or side should cause no harm to the instrument. However, it is advised to handle it carefully and avoid storing the piano in such a position for longer periods.
If safely secured with enough straps and paddling materials, it is possible to move a piano using a pick-up truck. However, it is strongly advisable to hire a professional removal service if you do not want to risk your instrument in any form. When choosing the dedicated transport service, the driver will help you to safely load the piano into the truck.
Pianos are big and heavy instruments so, depending on the type of piano, it might require two or even several people to lift it. When shipping it in a pallet through freight shipment, you can request a lift to the courier company.
