Moving

Make the smart move—with safe, insured, experienced piano movers.

Contrary to popular belief, moving a piano is not as easy as moving a bed or coffee table. A piano is a musical instrument! It’s fragile, it has moving parts, and it must be handled with great care.

Our movers here at 88 Keys Piano are professionally trained to move pianos only. We know what we’re doing.

We provide local moves within the Greater Coastal Empire (Chatham, Effingham, Bryan, and Bulloch counties) and South Carolina (Bluffton and Hilton Head). Our movers are fully insured and have the proper professional equipment to get your piano from point A to point B with extreme care, expertise, and safety.

Do not attempt to move your piano by yourself. If you do come out with your back uninjured and only manage to chip or scuff the back of the piano base, the refinishing and repair for that alone will exceed the cost of the move. It​’s not worth the risk!

We move smarter, not harder!

As of October 2018, we are proud to announce that we are now the 2nd piano moving company in the United States, and the first in the entire Southeast, to own a custom-made automatic stair-climbing piano moving dolly!

Designed in Italy specifically for moving pianos, this dolly offers the ability to keep your piano (uprights AND grands!) from tilting when going up or down steps. That’s right—your piano remains at the same angle (parallel to the floor) the ENTIRE time it’s climbing stairs! This reduces risk to your precious piano, and assures you that we are on the cutting edge of safety and excellence in our field.

Most movers use brunt force to get your instrument up or down stairs. And we used to too. But, we have invested in the very best our profession can offer to move your piano with uttermost care, giving you the peace of mind you deserve.

What Do Our Clients Say?

“Jon and his great crew did an extremely professional job of moving our 100 year old upright grand to its new home. I wouldn’t have believed the skill and speed that they maneuvered this over 700 pound piano if I hadn’t seen it for myself.”

Susan B., Wilmington Island, GA


“I had 88 Keys move a piano from Whitemarsh to my home in Effingham. They were on time, efficient, and super professional! They know pianos and everything about moving pianos and at a great price! Don't waste your time with anyone else. 88 Keys is the best!”

Ray H., Guyton, GA


“88 Keys has helped my mother with moving and tuning her upright over the past few years and she has been very pleased. I recently hired them to evaluate and move a grand piano I had purchased from a neighbor into my house. They came in with all of the proper equipment and immediately got to work making sure to take care of the piano and the personal property of the previous owner. When they arrived at my house they broke out their new stair climbing machine! I have 17 steps, with a slight turn, leading up to my front door. Where most other crews would have struggled to manhandle the small baby grand up these steps, Jon and his son (Luke) effortlessly and safely got my instrument up the steps and into the house within 8 minutes! I know because I videoed the whole event. It was amazing! They continued their professional move/installation in my home. This group is nothing shy of top notch and professional in action and word. I would recommend them to anyone!”
