International Sea & Air Shipping are the leaders in local and long distance piano moving. Piano moving services include short and long term storage and custom crating for the overseas or domestic shipping of pianos.
IMPORTANT: New Federal regulations prohibit the import and export of pianos with ivory keys, unless the ivory is removed from the piano before the instrument is moved. Under the proposed Federal rules, there will be an "antique" exemption for pianos more than 100 years old - but a piano age can sometimes be difficult to document, and any repairs made to the ivory within the last 100 years will disqualify that instrument from receiving the exemption.

The Art of Transporting A Piano
Piano moving is both a complicated and technical task. The effort to move a piano demands a great deal of human strength. All acoustic pianos are made from different types of wood, an understanding of these woods and how to protect them during the move is imperative. Movers must be experienced and dedicated to the successful wrapping, packing, loading and transporting of pianos. Piano moving specialists must be available at your destination as well.

We shipped a 7ft grand piano from...
We shipped a 7ft grand piano from central London via NYC to Connecticut. This involved a very intricate and complicated move of an extremely heavy piano down a flight of narrow stairs in London - removing a window and banister and then reassembling everything. The agent movers in London were extremely professional and did an outstanding job. After pickup and crating, I was given regular updates on the progress of the vessel that shipped the piano to the USA, and assistance with the customs clearance when it arrived. Finally, the local movers who delivered the piano to CT were courteous, on-time and extremely careful. Highly recommend for any overseas move.
