Moving Tips

A move should be planned out to protect your stuff and save time.

Moving can be an exciting time yet a difficult time. Some people are moving up to better places, others are making lateral moves and some are downgrading. Whichever is the case, one must start planning out their moving process. Waiting to you sign the lease of the new place or the final week at your old place is not the time to start packing and organizing. Give yourself an early start.

Here are some things to do when you are looking at starting to pack:


-Give yourself 30-60 days out from the time you need to be out. This will give you plenty of time to fully do your packing right to the point it’s not just throwing things in boxes and figuring out later. Many times, we wait to the 11th hour to get packed and then spend weeks and months trying to find stuff that we need at the new place. Most times, one knows when they will be moving so exercise time management and discipline with this.


-Look at things you know are not using, those should be packed first. These could be kitchen appliances, art work, furniture, seasonal clothes-shoes, books, linens and more. This allows you to make progress in your packing. Let’s be honest, it wasn’t like you were planning on finally reading some of those books just now or willing to use that kitchen appliance.  


-Cook out your pantry and freezer. Many times we have surplus food items that we meant to cook but never got around to it. This helps saves money. Cook out the pantry and freezer, try new recipes and guess what, less stuff to pack and take with you. Limit your grocery purchases to necessities only. Whatever that is perishable that is left over when it’s time to move either pack in coolers with ice or give away to neighbors.


-Alert your utility companies of your intention of moving out so utilities are disconnected immediately after you leave. Don’t wait as this can impact you on getting new service started and use this time to ask questions about if they are servicing your new home and if so you can transfer your services.


-Consider giving away to charity unwanted items such as furniture you really don’t want nor need, clothing and other items. This is a good tax write off and makes less stuff to pack. This is a great time to start going through your closets to look at old clothes and shoes that you have outgrown (yes, we know they shrunk) or just out of style.


-Make it your point to spend an hour to 90 minutes daily packing. Label the boxes with the room and general description of items.  


-Reserve your moving truck NOW! Weekends especially in warm months are tough to find moving trucks, everyone is using them. Book early so you are covered. Get a larger truck than a smaller truck so you make fewer trips.  


-Review your current lease to see if you are entitled to get your security deposit back. Inquire about this and make sure you are in compliance.


-Stock up on boxes, tape, bubble wrap and other moving supplies. Start seeking out helpers (if you will use friends or family) or look at a moving company.  


-Do you have a garage or storage unit full of junk? What about stuff in the attic? Check these places and toss out that junk and keep what you need. Depending on what you have, hold a yard sale. Check your local ordinances to see requirements for such (some cities limit the days and times one can be held, how it’s promoted and whatnot).


-During the last week, have a detailed cleaning week. Dust, mop, sweep vacuum and detail clean the place so on your last day, all you need to do is a basic sweeping and light mopping and you are done. Granted the landlord will have their own people come clean it again but never leave your place messy.


– Make sure you are able to get EVERYTHING out. Don’t assume that the landlord will not come by the next day or a few hours later after your departure time. Anything left behind could be kept by them or discarded as junk. Your stuff, your responsibility!


These basic nuggets of wisdom are things to keep in mind to make sure you are using your time wisely and not finding yourself frantic the week of or the day before the move. Take your time and do it right. Protect your stuff and keep your sanity. Out with the old, in with the new, let’s not spend weeks and months unpacking and sorting at the new place. You want to enjoy your new environment.

1. Why do I need a Piano Mover? 


 Local Piano Movers
1. Why do I need a Piano Movers?     
Piano moving, like all trades, is a specialty to itself. The average upright piano weighs anywhere between 400 and 900 pounds. 

Grand pianos start at 650 pounds and can go all the way up to1300 pounds. The value of a piano can vary from a couple  hundred dollars to half a million dollars depending on make, model, age and condition of the piano. For most people, their piano is one of their most prized possessions and getting it moved without damage is one of the most important things to them during moving time. This is why household movers do not include the piano in their general household pricing. You want movers who know what they are doing, who are going to move your piano with the care it deserves, and who will not damage your home or injury anyone in the process of moving.

Moving a piano almost always requires it to be moved through a space that has a tight squeeze (i.e. a door frame, staircase, etc.). I will never tell a person that they can not move their piano themselves. The question every person who wants their piano moved has to ask is, “Do I feel lucky?” and “What risks am I willing to take?”. Anyperson who has had an accident with their piano knows that when something goes wrong, it happens fast and when you least expect it. The repercussions of moving a piano by yourself or with an inexperienced person can cost you a small fortune or more stress than most people can take. The reason you need Piano Movers is simple: you want someone who is able to anticipate every part of your move before the move has started.  


2. How are Piano’s Moved?

Pianos are moved in one of two ways. The first way, which is commonly used by the general public and a number of household movers, is by brute force. Manhandle the piano with 4 to 8 people from one location into a vehicle. If you are lucky someone might consider trying to secure it into the vehicle. Then complete the move by manhandling it into place at the new location. The second way is used by professional piano movers and some household movers. They use 2 or 3 people to move the pianoBand are equipped with piano skids, moving pads, ramps, slings and the knowledge of how to move a piano safely. They use special techniques to manipulate the piano through the move and only require 4 to 6 people in the most difficult moves. The first way has an extremely high damagerate and can take 2 to 20 times longer than the second way.

I personally am a professional piano mover . You can not imagine the number of times people’s jaws hit the floor when they see a professional piano mover after they have attempted it themselves in the past.

They almost always say the exact same thing “Never again will I attemptto move my own piano, I will let the professionals handle it from now on”. 

3. If I hire a professional piano mover, does it mean that my piano will not be damaged?       

 You decrease the chances by % 95 national AMSA average.

 As in any move, there is always an element of risk. Any mover that tells you he has never damaged anything is either lying or extremely new to theprofession (there could be an exception out there, but anyone who gambles would never take that bet). The reason you should hire a professional piano mover is the same reason you hire a professional in any other trade or buy insurance: To protect yourself from injury liabilities and reduce the odds of your piano or home being damaged. We will tell you if there is a chance of damage in the move before we touch anything and will give you the option of proceeding.   

4. How do I find the best piano movers?        
Call the local piano stores, technicians, teachers (people in the industry) and find out who they would use. After a couple of inquiries it will become clear who the piano mover of choice is. 

5. Are all companies similarly insured?        
No. The true answer to this question will shock a lot of people. It is the buyer’s responsibility to make sure that he/she is properly insured, not the moving company. Just because the company says they are insured does not mean they are fully insuring your merchandise and move or telling you what their maximum liability is.

On top of this, there are three types of insurance to considerwhen people refer to insurance.  

1. Is the company insured against damage to property and or vehicles (commercial/automotive insurance)?  

2. Is the company insured against damage to the piano  (cartage/content insurance)?  

3. Is the company insuring its workers against injury  (Workman’s Compensation)? When you ask the question, are they answering 1 & 2, 2 & 3, all of them,  one of them, insuring for a single dollar or the full value of the item being moved? Never assume that all of these are being covered (unfortunately most people do and sometimes they pay a dear price for it). Is there a legal document to show that the customer is insured? (Another important question that is  almost never asked.) Make sure you know the company”s   “Terms of Cartage” before you book your move (ask them for a copy). Is the mover providing a proper “Bill of Lading”

    with all the “Terms of Cartage” and insured values for your  piano move? Most people do not realize that without a proper

    “Bill of Lading” they are NOT fully insured and fall under local cartage laws, which are never more than a maximum of $2.00per pound, do NOT cover their home and do NOT cover the  workers. Just because a piano mover says they are fully insured does not mean you are properly covered; unless there is a “Bill

of Lading” provided with the full declared value (insured value)

    written on it you are exposed and definitely not covered. Using a

    REPUTABLE piano mover is extremely important, because they

    take care of all these things for you. I should also mention that if

    you do not give an insured value to the mover prior to the move,

    you default to the local cartage amounts automatically.

    It is not the mover’s responsibility to make sure you have the right

    amount of insurance, it is YOUR job. I should also note that most

    movers will charge extra for additional insurance. 

    The MOST IMPORTANT reason to use a REPUTABLE piano mover,

    has to do with insurance. These days, insurance has become an

    extremely touchy issue, whether it be car, home or business insurance.

    Most people do not claim insurance with their insurance companies

    anymore due to rising premium rates. This same fact holds true

    with businesses, especially movers and piano movers. They have

    insurance policies to cover worst case scenarios, but like you and

    most businesses, piano movers are self-insuring their smaller day

    to day claims. You want someone who will provide you with a “Bill of

    Lading” (legal document) at the beginning of the move so that you know

    where you stand, and that the piano mover will stand behind any

    damages that they might have incurred and repair those problems.

    Everyone has heard moving company nightmares at one time or another.

    No “Bill of Lading” and No “Reputable Mover” is a recipe for your

own nightmare and can cost you a fortune.  
6. Why is worker injury important to me? After all it is

    the company’s problem. Isn’t it?        
It is extremely important for you to know the answer to this question. 

It is your responsibility to make sur as an individual or business that

the company (a piano mover) you are hiring is covered by Workman’s

Compensation. If you hire a company (a piano mover) that is not

covered you are accepting FULL LIABILITY for any employees who are

injured doing your job, because the local authority will consider them

your employee while they are working for you. This includes medical

bills and lost wages and a possible civil law suit. A piano moving company

covered by Workman’s Compensation will take care of these issues for you. 

Unfortunately, not all companies pay their required premiums and like all

insurance companies, Workman’s Compensation will cut off or not cover

all claims from delinquent companies. Big Al’s Specialty Movers has

Workman’s Compensation and we are always current on all premiums.

7. Does moving the piano affect the sound of my piano?        
This is a commonly asked question for which you may hear many

different answers. This question is asked because lots of people say that

their piano sounds different in its new location. The answer to the

question may or may not surprise you. No, not directly. The moving

does NOT affect the sound of the piano directly at all. If it is not the moving

then what makes it sound different here versus there? and why does it not

hold tune or does hold tune better here? The answer lies with the piano

technicians and furniture makers. A piano is made of wood and steel. 

Wood is directly affected by two things: “Temperature” and “Humidity”. 

Steel is directly affected by temperature. When these two elements change,

so does your piano. The more these two elements change, the more

frequently you need to regulate and tune your piano. It does not take a big

change to change your piano, and you should consult your manufacture’s web

site to see what type of environment is best for your piano. I will never forget

a story from one of our customers for whom we were moving a pre-tuned

piano from a piano store to a concert hall on one of the coldest days in winter. 

When we delivered his piano it was cold and obviously out of tune due to the

temperature outside. When the piano warmed up again, it came back into tune. 

Another reason why your piano may sound different is due to size of room and

its acoustics. Carpet absorbs sound, hardwood reflects sound. Sound reinforces

in small spaces, seeming louder, and gets lost in larger spaces, seeming quieter.

8. How much does it cost to move a piano?       
Piano moving is billed in one of two ways: Hourly rate, with a minimum

number of hours (usually min. = 2 hours) Flat rate based on following

factors The cost of moving a piano can vary due to the following factors: 

    1. Type of Piano 

    2. Distance being moved 

    3. Difficulty level due to stairs, grass pulls, tight turns, etc. 

    4. Number of people required to move piano due to difficulty level. 

    5. Time restraints placed on move during the daytime of year (season) 

    6. Waiting time that you might incur. 

To request a moving quote, please use our “Piano Move Estimate” forms

on our front page of this website 
Back to top ᴧ
9. How much notice do I need to give the Piano Mover?        
This depends greatly on when you need to have your piano moved and

where you are located. We usually will book on a first come, first serve basis.

If it is an in demand day, you could require over a month’s notice. 

If it is not, your move could be booked as quickly as tomorrow. 

If you need a specific day, I would recommend booking well in advance.

On average in the Greater Portland Vancouver Area, the average booking

time is a couple days to two weeks assuming you have some flexibility as

to which day your piano can be moved.

10. What information do I need to have before I call a Piano Mover?               
It constantly amazes me how many people call to get a quote or book

a piano move and do not have any of the important information required

to do so. I am constantly getting people calling me asking for our flat

rate for moving a piano. My first question is what type of piano do you

want moved. They answer a standard size piano. This type of answer

tells the piano mover absolutely nothing. All pianos are standard for

there type and class. The piano movers have only two choices here. 

Push you for the right information or quote you the most expensive rate

he has to cover the worst case scenario. The next question you will be

asked is where it will be moved to and from so we can calculate mileage.

Following this you will than be asked whether there are any stairs involved. 

We are constantly shocked how many people have no clue as to

how many stairs are in or outside their house or just don’t know how to

count them. If you do not want to get surprised by extra stair charges,

make sure you know the answer to this question. Over 80% of people

guess totally wrong and usually have 2 to 6 steps more than what they

remember. The way we count stairs is simple, our lead man will stand at

the bottom of the stairs and counts how many times he has to lift his foot

until he is standing on top of the landing (Yes the landing counts as a step). 

Knowing how we count steps is very important to remove any

misunderstandings. We should also note that we count the stairs outside

the house as well as inside the house. It is possible to have more than

one flight of stairs at one location (one or more flights of stairs outside

and one or more flights of stairs inside). To get an accurate quote, here

is a list of items you should know before you make the phone call. 
• What type of piano is it that you required moved? (Upright or Grand Piano) 

• What size of piano is it? (Upright are measured by height [floor to lid],

   Grand’s are measured by longest length [keyboard to curve in bow end])

• Where is it being picked up from? (Have full address including zip code) 

• Where is it being delivered to? (Have full address including zip code) 

• Are there any stairs that the piano needs to go over? (inside or outside,

   does not matter where) If there are stairs, how many? (Yes, the top

   landing step counts too, after all you had to lift your foot to get over it) Are

   they straight, spiraled, curved? Is there any turns getting on, in the middle

   or getting off the stairs? (To us: A tight turn at the top or bottom of the

   staircase does NOT constitute a straight staircase even if the steps

   themselves are straight. It is considered a flight with a turn) Based on

   what you tell us, we will tell you how many people we believe it will

   take to accomplish your move. Missing important details or difficulties

   or miss-estimating your move based on the information you provided

   could mean your piano move might not happen the day you have it

   booked and could incur more charges. 

• When are you looking to have it moved? 

• Are there any time restraints involved? (Remember that placing a time

   restraint on your move could result in extra charges)

• Inform us of any problems that you can foresee ahead of time. 

   For example, it has to go around my house across the grass.

   (We consider going across grass the same pushing a piano up a flight

   of stairs and charge accordingly for it). “I don’t have my keys to my

   new place until…” (waiting charges could apply), “I have to be out of my

   old place by…” (emergency move charges may apply) Try to have only

   one person responsible for getting a quote and arranging your move.

   The more people involved, the more likely a miscommunication

   could occur in your move.         
  The more information you can provide the more accurate your quote will be.

If you are vague and provide few details, there is a chance that there will be

extra charges. We are very specific about what we charge. Remember we

can only quote you based on the information you provide. We always try to

make the process as painless as possible and it is our goal to have this part

of your move the highlight and most stress-free part of your whole moving

process. The key is providing us with the information we need to help you

How to have a quick and healthy meal on your busy Moving Day from Home!!!

So here’s the delish dish found on a blog involving something everyone has a Crock Pot

– Bag of frozen Chicken Breast Tenderloins (2.5-3lb bag) Larson Lingo Crock Pot Recipe

– 8 oz. block of cream cheese (don’t use Fat Free! 1/3 less fat or regular is fine)

– Can of Black Beans, drained & rinsed.

– Can of Corn, drained.

– Can of Rotel
-Put frozen chicken in the crock pot

-Put Cream cheese on top of the chicken

-Pour in the Black Beans (make sure they are drained and rinsed well as always), drained corn and Rotel
-Cook on low for about 6-8 hours make sure to check on it around this time.
I would put all the ingredients in the crock pot before leaving for work in the morning and when I got home I would turn the crock pot off for about 30 minutes. The chicken starts to shred on its own and I shred the rest pretty easily.
Sometimes I like to make brown rice and either add lettuce for a salad or add to tortillas for a oh so yummy burrito.
There is usually a generous amount left over which is perfect for leftovers or lunches the following day.
This is how it can make your life noticeably easier, whether your everyday life is busy like mine, or you are moving and want a good, healthy meal at the end of it.
Like I have mentioned, Make sure to start this meal in the morning before you walk out the door. In fact, it takes about 3 minutes to dump in all of the ingredients and turn it on low. Some days I go to the gym after work, so when I get home I have a healthy and already-made meal waiting for me.
When moving, transport a crock pot and the ingredients, in your own vehicle to your new home. When you arrive, start your meal as soon as you arrive and let it sit all day while you are arranging and unpacking. So that way in the evening, when you’re tired and hungry and don’t want to look at another box, you will take comfort in knowing this great meal awaits you. I promise that you will not be disappointed.

Is a rental truck the best🔝 choice?

When you begin to plan a move, you’ll find you have a few options to getting everything from point A to B. When budgets are tight, renting a truck can give your wallet some relief, but generally not as much as you might hope for. Here are a few extra expenses to consider when making the choice between a full service move and a do-it-yourself job.

  Gas Mileage

In general, a rental truck will get anywhere between 6-8 miles per gallon. With a current national average fuel price of nearly $4 per gallon(for diesel), the fuel itself can be quite costly. For example, if you were moving from Dallas to Houston or San Antonio, you could expect an extra $300-400 just in fuel. The price of gasoline is not included in the rental itself, so be sure to factor this into the overall cost, because when you return the truck, you’re going to have to make sure that gas tank is completely topped off.
  Renter’s Insurance

Insuring a rental truck covers the truck, you and any passengers, and other drivers and passengers if you were to have an accident. This insurance does not cover the contents inside of the truck. You can ask your personal automobile insurance provider what they cover then ask the rental company what additional insurance may be available and the cost of the additional insurance. Honestly, insurance on a rental equipment can get VERY expensive, very quickly. Just basic liability that covers nothing more than if a rock cracks the windshield is $100-200 and can triple when you start factoring in cargo and passenger insurance. Most rental trucks you see on the road are grossly underinsured because of the high upfront costs. Just make sure you’re not one of them.
  Moving Day is Here, but the Truck Isn’t

Airlines, Candle Light Dinners, and rental trucks all depend on reservations, and it is equally as common that ALL 3 will overbook their schedules because cancellations are so frequent. Truck rental companies take the cake on this, and you need to be aware that at times, you may end up having to drive to the rental location across town to pick up the truck, because someone else picked up your truck 10 minutes earlier.
  Truck Speed

Rental trucks simply are not intended to be driven like a regular car or truck. Factor in some extra time and hotel for the travel, something along the lines of accommodating a maximum speed of 60 mph. Any speed much more than that, and that gas mileage really starts to drop!

When you arrive at your destination, there may be a need for temporary storage. Unfortunately, rental truck companies are not set up to facilitate this need, and extending your rental by a few days can be quite expensive sometimes tripling the original rental rate. A nearby storage facility will be a much more affordable option, though that will require moving everything…again which could be needed if it is some moving companies might offer this at discounted rates. 

  Limited Space

Deciding on the size of truck you will need to transport all of your personal belongings and treasures is a tough decision. You want to have enough space, but you don’t want to end up with not enough space in the truck. Not only does it cost more for a truck, the gas mileage goes down as the truck size increases. Truck rental companies will be able to offer some insight into choosing the right size of truck as well as tips on utilizing the space by packing it correctly.
At the end of the day, Reliable Movers & More offers a completely customized service, and that includes helping families load and unload their rental trucks and trailers. If looking to save some cash, a rental truck is great, but just make sure you invest in a professional company that can properly Load/Unload Pack Unpack your home to prevent damage along the way.
