Safety is the first consideration. A Piano is a heavy, unwieldy object. Even if the Piano is short spinet instead of a tall upright, it is top-heavy and it could easily tip over. The casters (wheels) underneath may be rusty, clogged with a foreign object, or swung in the wrong direction, preventing the piano from rolling easily. Lifting one end of the piano should be done carefully, keeping in mind some of the basic rules which apply to lifting any heavy object. The protruding and sometimes delicate exterior parts-legs, pedals, and music desks should be protected against damage. A Grand Piano requires more care to avoid putting stress on the Piano legs when moving-it is best to have enough people to "surround" the Piano and lift it slightly as it is moved.
Likewise, the floor should be protected against damage from dragging a "locked" caster or gouging by anything which might be protruding from the bottom of the Piano Clear all potential obstacles out of the way, including throw rugs and objects which might have ended up hidden under the Piano. Try not to lift one end of the Piano any more than is absolutely is necessary, because the strain applied to the structure of the instrument can cause enough twisting or bending to knock sections of the Piano out of tune. If it is necessary to move the Piano up or down a step or two, have plenty of help. If there are more than a couple of steps to negotiate, get a professional to do the job, even if it is only within the house. Once the Piano has been relocated, it is a good idea to use caster cups (the best are available from your technician) under the casters to protect the floor or carpet.
