There are four major groups of uprights to consider and we’re comfortable transporting each one, whether you need to move two blocks down the road, across the country, or overseas.
Spinets: The smallest of the lot, these usually measure about 3’ tall and close to 5’ long, and come in at about 200-300 pounds.
Console: Taller than spinets at around three-and-a-half feet tall, but around the same length overall.
Studio: Upwards of four feet tall, the additional height alone could easily tack on an additional 100 pounds over spinets.
Classic Uprights: The big daddies of the upright family, it’s easy to tip the scales at 500 pounds depending on the make and model.
Whereas you may get by with two movers for spinets, for the sake of safety alone we recommend four when it comes to these classics. (for more information, check out our post: “How Many People Does It Take To Move A Piano?“)
