Piano shipping from Ukraine: when a minor detail matters

Small size instruments (for example, a violin) can be shipped as a hand luggage, a double bass can be transported as a baggage, for a violoncello you can buy a separate passenger place. But the shipment of pianos or grand pianos by its complexity can even surpass antique furniture transportation.

The main difficulty for mover is instrument’s fragility and sensitivity to ambient (atmospheric) conditions change. During shipping it is extremely important to maintain integrity of a sound board (the surface of a string instrument that the strings vibrate against).

The piano shipment requires careful handling starting from its packing, pick-up, storage, transit and up to its destination. Moving piano is not the same as moving a heavy sofa. Any rumbling, moisture, dust, dirt and of course any kicks should be avoided.

Safe piano delivery from Ukraine is a process requiring assistance not only in transportation but also in documents handling.
