Hi everyone.

Just bought a piano on ebay - it needs retuning but apart from that its good, and the seller is only 6 miles away smile My question is......who do I contact to get it transported? And how much is it likely to set me back?

Posting the city might help you to get a local name. Pricing will probably depend on the city as well. Size, are there stairs involved? What is the carry from the drive/street like. All of the above will impact price.
Yellow pages will get you names. Dealers will most likely get you preferred provider.

I just had an 52 inch upright piano moved in Santa Fe, NM. A few steps but no stairs. Two guys put it on a 4 wheel dolly, put it on a truck with a lift, and put it in my home. He was a pro from Albuquerque, but had another delivery in Santa Fe, a smaller city. He charged me $150, and if he would have not had the other delivery, it would have been $225.

I got his name from the best store in Albuquerque. I called and just asked who they used. I had another Santa Fe recommendation from a respected tuner, but had trouble reaching him on the phone.
