Hi, everyone. A church I'm associated with tells me someone wants to donate a Hammond organ and they are asking me if I know of a mover. Can any piano mover do this, or do you need a specialist mover with inside knowledge?

I was thinking of a nearby piano mover I know, but for some reason they're not returning my phone calls right now.

How can I find a reliable mover? I looked on the internet and apparently Hammonds do require special adjustments before and after moving. Sorry, I do not know what model it is.

The church is in Staten Island, NY

Thanks for any help.

Oh...never mind. My original mover finally called back, and he has experience with all manner of Hammonds and others.

So my question is answered!

Thanks for looking.

Just saw the post.. A word to the wise.. If it is a solid state Hammond made from around 1970 through about 2000, it might not be worth the price of the move..
