Extensive Experience and Care
We have been moving pianos for over 10 years. Each new mover goes through extensive training to become a valuable part of our team.
With special knowledge and experience under its belt, our moving professionals handle your piano carefully and responsibly.
High-quality Piano Moving Equipment and Packing Materials
While moving pianos without special equipment and packing materials is possible, the results of such a move can be less than satisfactory. Without special blankets and shrink wrap, safety can’t be guaranteed.
That’s why Torex invests in high-quality piano moving equipment and packing materials, including
- Special safety straps to ensure the piano’s stability while in the truck.
- Piano dollies to carry all types of pianos regardless of their weight.
- Runners to protect floors from damage.
- Protective materials to protect walls and stair railings from scratches.
When packed properly, the piano can go through any type of move and stay safe regardless of the weather.
It doesn’t matter whether you plan long distance piano moving or need to carry it over to another apartment. If you don’t handle the piano properly, tuning it after the move can be complicated. Meanwhile, improper packing could lead to cracks and scratches. Our moving experts understand that even a small bump can affect the piano. That’s why we use only the highest quality equipment and materials.
Reliability and Safety
We understand that a move can be stressful, and don’t want to add any worries to the process. That’s why our experts can arrange a highly delicate and reliable piano move to any part of Canada or even the world. Even if you need to move from Ontario to France, we can handle the process seamlessly.
No matter how far you plan to relocate your piano, with Torex, you can be sure the move goes smoothly. Whether you are planning to move an entire home or simply relocate the piano, we can ensure reliability every step of the way.
Since we know how important your piano is to you and your family, we want to do everything possible to ensure its safety and integrity. However, unexpected things happen. That’s when insurance kicks in.
Torex is a registered and licensed piano moving service. Standard business insurance is included in the price of the move. If you want to purchase additional piano insurance, please contact us for details.
Since we are an officially registered and licensed company, we know the importance of the legal part of the move. Before we move your piano, you sign an official contract that contains all terms of our services, responsibilities, and costs of the move.
Moving a piano may seem like a costly task. It can be especially daunting when you are already planning a large move. Thankfully, we can arrange piano delivery from one doorstep to another without breaking your budget.
We take a unique approach to each client, keep the budget in mind, and try to give every customer a highly reasonable quote. Over the past 10 years, we’ve worked with over 2,000 clients. Our team managed to settle the right price for each one of them. We make it our business to make your move affordable.
If you are unhappy with our price quote, we are always open to negotiations. While cheap piano movers don’t exist, reasonable prices are always available.
Torex is a large moving company, which specializes in moving different types of pianos. Even though our head office is in Toronto, we service GTA and surrounding areas.

HOW TO CHOOSE PIANO MOVERS IN TORONTO
The longer the company is dealing with piano moving in Toronto, the better it can handle the instrument. Check out the online reviews and talk to your friends and neighbors. The piano moving experts are rather rare so you won’t be stuck making a tough choice.
In order to make piano moving smooth, the movers must have professional equipment. Lifting a piano into a van or carrying it down the stairs can be complicated without the right tools. Ask if the company you are about to hire has the required equipment to carry a piano. Expert piano movers in Toronto must have:
- Safety straps
- Shrink wrap
- Many different types of dollies
If the company doesn’t list the above as the equipment, the move may not be sufficiently delicate.
One person can’t do a proper job of moving a large piano. The size of the piano moving team depends on the type of the piano as well as the house layout (stairs/no stairs). To figure out how many people you need to move your piano, please contact us for details.
WHY YOU NEED PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE TO MOVE YOUR PIANO SAFELY
Arranging a DIY piano move may seem like a money-saver. In reality, it could turn into a serious disaster. Before you say no to moving services, consider the following issues.
- Packing – sticking a piano into a regular blanket and securing it with tape doesn’t always work. Without professional packing materials and equipment, the piano could end up with dents and lose its value considerably.
- Apartment size – if you are moving to or from a small apartment, you need knowledge and experience maneuvering a large piano in order not to hit a wall or a window. In a large home, each flight of stairs poses a danger to a delicate musical instrument. When it comes to moving a piano, navigation is a serious issue.
- Equipment – unless you plan to rent such equipment as a piano skid, you may have serious problems moving up and down each flight of stairs or getting the instrument into a truck. Besides being stressful for the movers who need to lift heavy pianos, the lack of proper tools could lead to serious damage.
- Insurance – professional piano movers include insurance in the price of the move. They can also sell you additional insurance to make sure you don’t lose any money during the move. If you want to move your piano by yourself, you need to worry about getting insurance on your own. In case a problem occurs, you’ll have to spend a considerable amount of time on expertise, evaluation, and reimbursements.
- Weight – a piano (whether grand or upright) can be extremely heavy. Its weight varies from 90 to 544 kg. Even if you have a piano dolly, lifting the instrument requires at least two people. Navigation through rooms and stairs can require two more. If you don’t have experience lifting heavy objects, such a move could result in health issues.
Working with professional Toronto piano movers isn’t just convenient. It ensures that your piano ends up at its destination in one piece. Moving pianos is complicated and tough. One wrong move could affect the value of the instrument and lead to costly repairs, or worse, replacement.
Unlike furniture, a piano requires extreme care and extensive moving experience.
