The next step for piano movers in Adelaide is to place another blanket folded several times on the floor, on one end of the piano, and bring the mobile stage closer to the other end. Lift the piano from one end and put the folded blanket under its paws. Then lift the piano from the other end and slide the platform with wheels more or less to the middle of the piano. With our team of highly efficient piano movers in Adelaide completing your removals in Adelaide, there will always be someone in the middle to adjust the platform.

Slide the piano on the platform wheels and out of the room.

How to go downstairs with the piano

Change the positions of the piano removalists in Australia so that 2 or 3 of them are located on the stairs below and help to manage the platform so that it does not fall down the steps. Place a pair of ropes around the rear wheels.

Move the piano closer to the edge of the step and pull the ropes to lift the front wheels of the dolly closer to the step. Rolling the rear wheels forward carry the platform to the lower step and let the front wheels rest. Finally, with the help of the ropes, the team of top piano movers in Adelaide has to support the 2 rear wheels and repeat this operation in each step.
