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.
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.
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
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.
