Most pianos have wheels to make it easier to move from one place to another. However, some pianos have metal wheels that can damage your flooring when they are moved. Additionally, older pianos have rusty wheels that no longer move or are broken. We can change those wheels for you to rubber or plastic ones that help reduce the damage of metal wheels, whilst making it easier for you to move your instrument around your property.
Fitting A frame and bracket castors
With pianos that are used in public places such as conference halls, churches, schools, clubs, theatres, etc., the instruments will be moved constantly from one place to another. This constant moving across uneven surfaces can cause damage to the piano’s wheels, or possibly even break the leg of a grand piano. A solution to this problem is to attach a safety bracket castors to an upright piano or an A frame to a grand piano.
Fitting a safety bracket castors
The upright piano will be put on castors, which will protect the instrument. The weight of the piano is distributed evenly throughout the inside, making it difficult to topple and easier to move around.
Fitting an A frame
The three wheels of the grand piano will be attached to an A frame. The frame also has rubber/plastic wheels so when the instrument is moved, it’s the wheels of the frame that do the work, not the wheels of the piano. Additionally, the three legs of the piano will be fixed to the frame, avoiding any risk of damage to the legs.
We always have safety bracket castors and A frames ready to transport your piano.
If, for any reason, your piano’s case has been scratched or has faded in colour due to direct heat etc, we can repair or even re-vanish it.
For a better sound quality, as well as aesthetically for grand pianos,we can change all, part or a single “dead” string to ensure the strings provide the best quality sound.
