The danger of carrying the piano is so terrible that it can lead - not the piano, but you - right into the hands of undertakers
So instead, just pay the professional piano carriers to do everything for you.
But if the distance of carrying the piano seems easy to you, and / or you still haven't lost your desire to find out how to carry the piano yourself, then continue reading further.
Look at the photo below and carefully study it.
Now imagine yourself as one of these guys carrying a 360-kilogram piano down the stairs.
Just take a look at it! When you first find yourself under such a heavy load, like this piano, located at the top of a long flight of stairs, it will seem to you the height of the Ostankino tower.
And only then, when you actually drag it on yourself, do you realize that this is a kind of real Ostankino tower.
Now imagine that while carrying the piano its weight begins to prevail over the forces of one of your team, and suddenly it begins to roll or balance in your hands, like the arrow of the scales, and everyone is trying to balance it or even lower it by a step to restore control lost over him!
Now imagine that at the peak of your joint desperate efforts to eliminate the imbalance and regain control of the piano, it suddenly slips out of your hands!
Those from below will try to instantly bounce away from the piano flying towards them, so as not to get injured. But even if both of them miraculously avoid injuries, the piano, and the stairs, and the railing will be seriously damaged.
What a nightmare scenario! But you just wanted to save the extra hundreds of rubles.
You are absolutely sure that this task should not be entrusted to those who were specially trained in this, even if it would have to pay several thousand rubles "> Other things being equal, carrying and transporting the piano on your own, which involves a huge degree of risk of injury to participants in this process and / or damage to the piano or property, against the very low probability of saving money, it is worth it to turn to professionals for help.
Refrain from carrying the piano amateurly on the stairs, because it:
- weighs a lot
- it is extremely difficult to carry
- and keep in balance.
Please carefully study the pictures below (click on them to enlarge).
Pay attention to the tension on the faces of these two people, who are professional riggers, while they lower the piano down the stairs (which is much easier to climb)! Not only do they have to hold a colossal mass in the air, they also have to constantly think and take care of balancing the piano, evenly distributing its weight between all participants of the carrying.
Do you really, an amateur loader, really want to take the same risk that these two professionals take upon themselves?> Do you know that even experienced, professional moving companies, mainly involved in furniture transportation, guarantee their customers a “delicate relocation”, they constantly turn to the piano shipping company for help if it moves, too, the favorite master piano?
Thus, even if highly professional shipping companies need the help of rigging men, who are specialists in transporting the piano, what can we say about an inexperienced lover to try your luck and your own back for strength ... about someone like you?

Why? Is it just to persuade you to spend earned by honest labor money on their services? Maybe someone knows? Perhaps a certain degree of greed makes others give their advice, but I want to believe that they (like the author of these lines) are more interested in your well-being.
