Pianos is a specialist job
The story by
Anna Enquist is a perfect example of the way pianos and grand
pianos are moved.
Between the black lacquered wooden cables that clutched the instrument
was pushed a gray blanket.
The yellow crane towered like a one-armed, stiff giant over the
house, and slowly began to let down his burden. ...
Luckily nowadays, we have the right equipment to do that.
In the old days it was a different matter, pianos and grand pianos
were carried up the stairs by four men using special webs.
This must have been very heavy work.
The Bechstein grand piano on the picture weighs about 500 kg.
Moving pianos is a special skill; piano movers could and can only
do it because they know exactly what they are doing.
