Spinet/Console Piano Moving — Bought a used piano, but now you’ve got to get it home? I’ve got you covered. I can move and tune a typical spinet or console piano here in the Hampton Roads area for a flat fee of $250.00. If there are more than three steps to go up or down at either end of the move, then there will be a surcharge of $20 per extra step, because I will need an extra person. I appreciate your understanding.
Grand Piano Moving, or Out of Town Piano Moving — I recommend Jerry Mize, of Famous Jerry’s Piano Moving. You can phone him at (804) 712-0986. Tell him that Doug Norton referred you. A grand piano move in Hampton Roads starts at about $400, and goes up from there. This is NOT something you can do on your own, and is not something that most household movers can do properly. They do not have the proper training, equipment, or experience, and it takes all three to move grand pianos. You owe it to yourself and your piano to get a real piano mover to do it, and Jerry is your guy. After he moves it, Iwill tune it for $125.
Repairs and/or Restoration — I can perform minor repairs such as sticking keys, pedal adjustment, action adjustment. cleaning, voicing, string replacement, damper replacement, etc., at the same time as your piano tuning appointment, and many times for little or no additional cost, unless parts are needed, or it takes an extraordinary amount of time. Some repairs might require a shop repair, and I will remove the broken item to my shop for repair, and then return and re-install in your piano at another date. There is no way to diagnose repairs without seeing the piano, so we decline to make guesses over the phone or by email. I will be happy to come see you for a free estimate, however.
Due to lack of resources and time, I regret that I am unable to offer comprehensive restoration service. For extensive repair work or complete restoration work, we recommend Terry Greene, RPT. You can phone him at (757) 438-0111. Tell him that Doug Norton referred you to him.
All tuning, moving, and repair fees are to be paid in CASH (no checks or credit cards, please) at the time of service, unless you are a church or school.
