Piano Board

piano board is a padded wooden device similar to a toboggan with handles that is used to move grand pianos. The piano board allows the movers the ability to get a better grip on the piano, protect its delicate keyboard, and slide it along the floor or stairs without damaging the exterior. To properly move a grand piano, the lid, music rack, the lyre pedals, and the left leg under the keys are removed and padded. The piano is then tipped onto its flat side onto the piano board and the remaining two legs also removed and padded. The piano chassis is then padded and strapped to the board. A 4-wheel dolly can be placed under the piano board to roll the piano rather than carrying it.
