Moving a Heavy Piano Requires a Strong Team

You may not know how much a piano weighs. Even the smallest pianos, however, require multiple people to load onto a truck or a trailer.


Pianos are divided into four categories:

1. Upright Pianos

Upright pianos weigh 200 to 500 pounds depending on the size of the piano. Spinet and console pianos weigh around 200 to 300 pounds. Studio upright pianos can top out at approximately 400 pounds. Classic uprights can weigh 500 pounds or more depending on the more. Uprights require three to four movers to load and unload the piano.

2. Grand Pianos

Baby Grand pianos are among the most popular and are much bigger and heavier than upright pianos. Before an Ace Midwest Movers crew moves a Baby Grand Piano, we’ll need to remove legs and pedals first. Doing so will give us more space to move the piano. Baby Grands weight between 500 and 1,000 pounds. It will take four movers to load and unload the piano.

3. Concert Grand Piano

Both Piano and Baby Grand Piano will require a team of experts, specialized equipment, and some additional planning and strategy to move them.


A Concert Grand piano is up to 9 feet in length and can weigh up to 1500 pounds. It will take a team of six or more movers to relocate this piano. Most Concert Grand pianos are expensive. Some are valued at $50,000. Therefore, they should be in the hands of qualified movers who will take great to make sure the piano arrives safely at its destination. Our movers will have to slowly disassemble the piano, move it into a special vehicle with professional-grade padding and packaging. We will have to drive the truck slowly and carefully.
