Piano Moving FAQ

Will the tune of my piano be affected by moving it?

Relocating a piano doesn’t really have an effect on the piano tuning (unless it was damaged during the move), its the change of environment that can cause a piano to become out of tune. Factors such as change in humidity and temperature between the old apartment, the truck and the new apartment, differences between the old and new room size can change the piano sound too.
