How Do I Transport a Piano?
One of the most expensive items that you are going to need to pack and move is your piano. The piano is quite a large object so that in and of itself makes it difficult to move but that is not all. The piano even though it is large is extremely delicate and has many moving and working parts. There are keys, pedals, strings and more that make the piano give off that beautiful sound. The problem is that if it is knocked around too much or left unsecured it can become out of tune or even broken. Having repairs done to a piano can become expensive and it can end up never sounding the same. When you move it and it is only knocked around slightly you may need to call out a piano tuner to get it back in tune. It is best to hire a move that has experience in moving pianos so they can secure it properly.
Can You Move Live Plants?

The dirt is needed to secure the roots of the plant. The other is that the plant is alive and it needs to have sufficient oxygen so that it does not wilt and die. Sitting in a truck for days without any air or water can be disastrous.
