Finally, the Piano is Gone

The movers did come today. The buyer came early and helped us move things to prepare a path. The plan was to take it through the kitchen, but the squeeze next to the china cabinet was just too snug, in spite of the measurements the buyer did ahead of time. So, as you can see, they had to change course and take it through the front door instead of through the more convenient sliding glass door where the ramp was already set up over the stairs to load directly onto the truck.

In the next photo, you see them taking the out the front door. Moving this piano took three men. They are professional piano movers.

I took the photo.

Now they are about to take the piano down the ramp.

I took the photo.

Of course, someone must supervise to make sure they do it correctly. Guess who decided to supervise!

I took the photo.

My hardest job during the moving was to keep the supervisor from tripping the movers or getting into the house through the open door. I had asked the neighbor to keep the puppy, who loves to make circles around anyone moving, inside during the process. Puppies and piano movers just don't mix.

Love the Supervisor, Barb! I've actually moved a few pianos in my life (with help, of course). Those damn things can kill you. I had to give up possession of a favorite old spinet some years when I moved. It was a gift from my father to my mother when I was born, and she gave it to me when she moved. Can you imagine moving a grand, or even a baby grand? That must be a nightmare!!

Is it going to the P.P theatre production ?

Looks like a major job. I notice none of the movers are wearing safety shoes - lucky nobody lost a toe 'cos those pianos can be heavy!

Well I hope your husband and you still live in harmony...

I particularly liked the "supervisor." Looks cute!

This is Guiness the Cat. I'm glad they were expertly supervised. I'm sure everything went perfectly once Sarah was on hand. Now, see? If you had just let her inside, you wouldn't have had those initial problems.

At least she didn't trip them.

If I'd still been using it, it would have stayed. The person who owns it now plays like a concert pianist. I heard him playing upstairs one day when I was at a meeting and asked his dad who it was. We kept talking and found out his son was looking for another good piano. It was a good deal for all of us.

These same movers you saw here hand-carrids a grand piano to this same buyer's upstairs apartment. That was the one we heard him playing while we were at the meeting when we first heard him play.

Sorry, but no.

BarbRad wrote on November 22, 2014, 11:22 PM

I guess they know what they are doing, since they do this for a living.

BarbRad wrote on November 22, 2014, 11:23 PM

Give us a few days to recover from the past three days and maybe we will.

BarbRad wrote on November 22, 2014, 11:24 PM

She wasn't sure what was going on and had to make sure no one took over her territory.

BarbRad wrote on November 22, 2014, 11:25 PM

I'm not so sure about that. She might also have gotten herself squashed.
