The amount it will cost to move your piano will depend on a number of factors. These include:


How easy it is to get it in and out of the buildings
A big factor that will affect the price of moving your piano is how easy it is to manoeuvre the piano in and out of the buildings you are moving it from and to. If you are currently living in an apartment or in a home that has a lot of stairs, then this could affect how easy it is to get the piano out and therefore it will take more time and will be more expensive. It might be that the removal company needs to use specialist equipment to move it which will also cost more. 


How far you are moving
Something else that will affect the price will be how far you are moving the piano. The longer the distance, the more time it will take. Removal companies usually charge by the hour so the more time it takes to move, the higher the cost will be. 

Time of the move
Removal company's prices are higher when they are busiest. Summer tends to be their busy season and weekends are busier than weekdays. If possible, try to avoid these times and move off-peak to get cheaper prices.
