Van Delivery – how to move a piano easily

Because of their weight and value, moving pianos with a dedicated van is really the best and safest solution. This is because the whole space of the vehicle is reserved for your piano, which is transported directly to the chosen delivery address. There are no packaging restrictions to follow, so you can arrange the piano in the van however you wish. Simply wait for the driver on the selected pick-up date, and your piano moving service will be performed in 24-48h.

How to pack a piano for moving overseas in a van

While there are no specific packing guidelines for our Van Service, you can follow the steps below and find out how to transport an upright or grand piano safely and efficiently.

  • Secure the lid and fallboard closed with bubble wrap and tape. If you want even more protection for the keys, you can use bubble wrap to cover them before closing the lid.
  • If you are transporting a grand piano, disassemble the legs and pedals to be packed in a separate box.
  • Cover the whole surface of the piano with bubble wrap or moving blankets, then secure with stretch foil and tape.
  • Use a piano dolly for additional safety. Get help from three or four people to load the piano carefully onto the dolly and secure it tightly with straps.
  • Check once again that all surfaces of the piano are covered and protected before loading it onto the van.

FAQ on the best way to move or transport a piano

Can I transport a piano by myself or should I hire movers?
Deciding whether to hire movers or move the piano yourself largely depends on your budget and how far away the destination is. There are fewer risks of damage and injury with professional piano movers, as they use the right equipment and know the best way to move your piano to its new location.
If you book your piano moving service with Eurosender, you can benefit from the lowest price for your requirements thanks to our booking engine, which instantly compares thousands of rates to get you the best option and make your relocation as smooth as possible. Please let us know during the booking stage if you need any equipment or extra help for moving the piano. These features are available on request.
How much does it cost to move a piano by van?
The starting rate for moving a piano by van is 0.48 €/km. Our automated platform calculates the cost for you in just a few seconds. Insert the collection and delivery addresses and shipment details in the booking tool to get your instant quote. Bear in mind that this quote does not include ferry or tunnel charges.
What is the cheapest way to move a piano?
Upright and grand pianos are heavy items that require a lot of careful handling for transport. Van Delivery is the ideal solution for moving or transporting a piano internationally in Europe at affordable rates. With Eurosender, you can rest assured that your request will always be matched with the best transport service for your needs. Check the price for transporting or moving a piano in our booking tool.
Can a piano be laid down or on its side for transport?
Yes, it can. Moving a piano on its back or side for van transport will not damage the instrument. On the other hand, the piano may be damaged if it is dropped while lifting or if it bumps against a wall. Whatever way you arrange the piano for transport, make sure it is secure and immovable.
What is the van capacity for piano removals?
We offer two types of vans for moving pianos across Europe:
  • Box van: 465 x 165 x 180 cm or 13 cubic metres and 1000 kg capacity
  • Curtain-side van: 410 x 210 x 230 cm or 19 cubic metres and 1000 kg capacity (with tail-lift only 700 kg)
Both vans fit a digital or upright piano comfortably, but if you need to move a grand piano, we recommend measuring the dimensions carefully before booking the service. Some grand pianos may weigh more than the 700-1000kg threshold, so you would require special transport solutions.
How do I track my piano moving service?
We will send you instructions for tracking your piano moving service via email once your order is confirmed. Once the collection is performed, you can keep track of the van transit using the live map we will provide, which is updated every 15 minutes.
How do I insure a grand piano for moving by van?
When you book a van for moving a piano, the price quoted online in our booking tool will already include basic insurance coverage. Extended liability is also available, please send us a message via chat if you want to discuss your insurance options.
The transport companies we work with provide one of the safest modes of shipping as your load is transported straight to the delivery address.
