Local, National or International Piano Removals
Local, national or international piano moves are all in a day’s work, there is no piano removal too small or too large for us to tackle. We can move your piano across town or across the country, your piano removal could be to Europe or you may need a piano shipping to a distant corner of the globe. Whatever you need, we can move your piano near or far.
Our storage facility offers safe, secure and value-for-money piano storage for your beautiful instrument. We can store your piano in standard storage conditions or in a climate-controlled piano room. For grand pianos, we can store them on their side or on their legs. Whilst we have options to fit all budgets, if possible we would always recommend storing your grand piano on its legs. This is how grand pianos are designed to sit and take the loads and is therefore the best way to store them.
Our climate-controlled store is a bit different. Unlike other climate-controlled facilities we maintain the temperature and humidity to keep your instrument in perfect condition. Changes in humidity cause natural fibres such as wood and cloth to swell and contract, which over time can damage instruments. This is why our climate-controlled facility is the perfect place to store your piano.

Highly trained and Experienced Staff
We have over 40 years’ experience in piano removals and have moved some of the world’s most valued instruments. Over the years we have moved pianos for the Royal Collection Trust, BBC, Elton John, Royal Festival Hall and even moved Beethoven’s original grand piano. We had the honour of taking Beethoven’s original 1817 John Broadwood piano on a once-in-a-lifetime European Tour from Hungary. As the sole piano removal company employed for the event, we were responsible for the pianos movement and safety for the entire tour, which took in Vienna, Bonn, Bath, London and Budapest. This was a truly unique event and one we are extremely proud to have been part of, read more about the Beethoven piano move here.
For over 20 years I have used Colin Batt Removals exclusively for our high-value piano removals. Being a family business, they have always been willing to go the extra mile and show that extra amount of care and attention that is so important for us.

Over the years we have moved pianos up spiral stairs in cathedrals, through windows using cranes and scaffolding, shipped pianos to an island on a speedboat and taken them on international tours. Hence, we have the right equipment and training to ensure your piano is moved carefully no matter its destination.
