Upright piano

Post by jomaco » 04 Nov 2019, 14:15

Hi,

I recently committed to buy a wonderful Bluthner upright. It was fairly inexpensive but to me it sounds great.

However, now the hard bit, finding out who can move it from Edinburgh to Leeds with flights of stairs involved at the pickup address (3rd floor apartment).

Can anyone recommend a company that does nationwide piano removal and perhaps makes regular trips to/from Edinburgh so the cost can be split? I am a little concerned the delivery will end up almost as much as the piano itself cost. I can get quotes from companies I know but without having done it before I am not sure which companies cover wider areas, so have had a few responses so far stating that they cover only locally and cannot quote competitively.

I hope it is acceptable to ask such questions on the forum - without the knowledge of which companies can actually do the above I really feel I need some input from those in the know.

If you can help, that would be very much appreciated!

Thanks
