I'm headed to town tomorrow to buy a Kawai CA78, but I want to make sure I've got room for it in my trunk first, or if I'll have to make other arrangements. Does anyone know the aproximate dimensions of the box it comes supplied in?

Hello Romar,

According to the Excel file I have here, the CA78 carton box size is:

1585 (L) x 685 (W) x 650 (H) mm

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
James

Mine was delivered on a pallet which seemed like integral part of the package (box was originally stripped to it) - that will be around 100 mm.

I am thinking about buying Kawai CA78 also. How ever I am concerned about how I can get it to my apartment as it is not at groundfloor level.

My question is; can these pianos be tilted a few degrees? Maybe not full 90 degrees (to its side) but just enought to get it in an elevator. The width of the elevator is 150 cm.

Other options are to lift it 5 stories with a friend, which is of course risky with 75 kg weight on it, but doable. Or then order a piano-lift service which costs 150 € and will be difficult to arrange because the shop has a free delivery on groundlevel only and the lift service needs to be ordered separately.

Any suggestions?

My CA58 came , "stand up" on top a pallet. if you have elevator in your building you should able to get it up to your apt. Get a hand truck and carry it that way.

I would just like to add to this conversation that my CN37 box + piano bench + pallet was about 90Kg (!). And the CN37 is 20Kg less than the CA78...

I don't think you could damage something if you tilt the box a little just for the time to get it to your floor level, but maybe someone more expert on this matter could answer you...

My CA97 (same GFII action as the CA78) was tilted fully on its side (90 degrees on the short side, so that the keyboard was vertical) by the piano movers who carried it away when I sold it. I never heard any complaint from the buyer, so I guess there was no problem with that treatment. Additionally, from when I had it open to take a look at the action, I don't see how tilting (even to 90 degrees) would damage anything. The whole action, including the keys, is secured in such a way that tilting won't matter. And the electronics don't move anyway, no matter the orientation.

I think the conclusion from this thread:

http://forum.pianoworld.com/ubbthre...ely-fits-on-an-elevator.html#Post2861543

was that all pianos can be stood on end. I will soon find out with a Yamaha U1, if I can find one to rent.
