It may be cute to see the piano go rumbling down the steps when
Abbot and Costello try to move the piano up the hill, but in real life
it ain't too cool Harry.  Also, a piano only slightly out of control can
ruin your foot for a long time. If you have a habit of moving a piano
around the country, or around the concert hall, one of these trucks
would be very much in order.

One insurance claim from an injury or falling piano will more than
equal the cost of one of these trucks.

MOVING TRUCKS AND HARDWARE

A moving dolly or truck can make the difference between disaster and a peaceful journey.  It is not out of the
question for a non-professional to purchase a moving truck.  Compare the cost of a truck with the cost of hiring
professionals.  If the move is not complicated, this may save you a lot of cash.  Also, moving companies often do
not have the best equipment, and if they do, it may be unsafe and worn out.

Consider the continuing usefulness of one of these trolleys. They are very useful for moving new large appliances
and heavy side drawer file cabinets, among many other uses. Hang one in the garage, and you will also be able
to rescue friends and neighbors who are moving large objects. Just be sure to put your name on it :-)

MOVING UPRIGHT PIANOS




Roll-Or-Kari Piano and Organ Truck

     Two dollies with four straps, this truck combo is ready to go.  Rubber and felt cushioning
     protect your instrument or furniture.  The adjustable straps lock around the object
     and hold the whole thing together like one big trolley as you move along.
     Retractable wheels allow you to easily pick the load up without groaning, and you can set the
     piano or orgen down in your van or trailer for the delivery trip. Yet the casters are not able to roll
     around as you travel along. Cover in graphic not included. See covers above.

Operation:            

Place one truck at each end of the load, fasten the straps,
and press the foot lever at each end to raise
the load and start moving.

CAUTION: NOT safe for use with Grand Pianos

 
NOTE: There is another version of this truck with the option to lock the swivel casters so that the truck can be operated by one person. Call for pricing on this truck.

Four 7 foot straps included.
All four wheels swivel. 1000 lb capacity total lift with both devices used together.

Putting the Piano Into Storage?

Moths and mice do terrible things to pianos left in storage. Check out the following product.

MOUSE AND COCKROACH TRAPS

Nobody likes to admit that mice have invaded their home. A mouse takes
up residence, collects food from the pantry and dogs food dish, and may
even be well on the way to raise a happy little family of more mice before
you see the tell tale evidence of the mouse.

Mice LOVE upright pianos. They especially like to make house under the
keys. There are three sections under there, living room, pantry, and restroom.
Many times I have opened up an upright piano that had something restricting
the keys from dropping all the way, only to find a mouse apartment in full
progress.

Our MouseMaster traps will catch the mouse when it first enters the piano
down in the bottom area. It smells of natural real peanut butter, but the trap
has a thick layer of extremely sticky substance that catches the mouse and
holds it securely once it steps inside the box. Just fold the box up by the
instructions, remove the protective layer, and put the trap in the bottom of the piano.

You will need to remove the bottom "kick board" by lifting or turning the lever that secures it at the top in order to open the bottom area.

For moth proofing, simply drop some moth balls into the piano cabinet in a small cardboard box with holes in it.
