3 Ways To Protect Your Piano If You’re Moving To Another Place

Moving to another place or making changes to your residence itself is a tedious job. Many homeowners tend to own grandiose prized possessions, such as antique grandfather clocks, designer decor fixtures, or very useful and decorative items that fuel their hobbies, such as pianos.

Whether it’s reconstructing and renovating your existing home, or moving to a whole different address, protecting your valuables, and especially those as large and delicate as pianos is a challenging task.

A piano is complex machinery combined with many small parts. One thing damaged and you have to make expensive repairs. Precautionary measures should be paramount and indeed, taking professional help will save you from a lot of trouble.

Here are some tips to protect your piano during house construction, renovation, or while moving to a different location.

Secure them in Storage Units

It is understood that regardless of your transition, a prized possession as fragile as a piano needs to be stored for a certain period for sure.

Pianos have several hundred moving parts and essential components, all of which have more or less the same level of fragility and rely greatly on the stability of the overall instrument.

A malfunction or displacement in any component would result in a malfunction of the piano. In such an unfortunate but very likely case, it would have to be repaired, that is if it can be repaired at all.

Thus, instead of pushing it and moving it around on your own, call for professional movers to transfer your valuable instrument to a safe and reliable storage unit perth for whatever time you deem necessary. After the piano is moved, let it sit for a few weeks to get it acclimated to the environment before you get it tuned.

Ask A Friend for Help

Moving a piece as large and complex as a piano yourself is not an easy task. Even when it comes to merely push it around, people would generally think for an object as heavy as one would assume a piano to be, muscle and physical strength is all that matters. But they are underestimating.

Protecting the instrument and making sure it is not being affected by the impact of being moved around is more crucial than ever to preserve the valuable instrument.

Every little component is very essential. So with the help of an additional person or several people, the instrument can be well looked after and taken care of even during moving. If you can’t get professional help, seek someone in your acquaintance who has done this before.

Measurements before the moving

Before carrying your piano to different rooms, floors, or even out of the house entirely, it is crucial to know in what spots of the house or space to be most cautious. You wouldn’t want your heavy piano to get stuck right outside the door of the room or hall.

Measure the width of the piano beforehand. And then measure the width of the hallways, doorways, and plan strategically beforehand how to carefully move your piano.

 

“Some tips to reduce road accidents”

On the roads of our country every day there are over 600 accidents causing 14 victims and 52 serious invalids; and when this happens to others, to those we do not know, about whom we learn news through the mass media only for news reasons, only a few away meters from home or for reasons related to the poor conditions of the roadway, street lighting, etc.

Our attention to the problem fades into the background, taken by so many worries and vicissitudes that accompany our daily life, simplistically attributing the ominous event to an already written destiny which is accompanied most of the times by the attribution of blame exclusively to who was driving and not the problems of today’s road traffic. But this is not always the case and Fabio Bergamo has shown it with his in-depth work.

As a writer, in fact, he has been working on the problem for many years and his approach was first of all of a humanistic nature, then of a legal and technical nature; in fact, one of his books, already widespread in many Italian driving schools, is entitled

“Phenomenology of the pedestrian”. In it, the problem of safety is rationally examined from the perspective of the pedestrian, a weak user par excellence, because according to the author it is precisely from the pedestrian (user on foot) that one must start again to offer useful solutions to guarantee safety in general and in particular the education of young people behind the wheel who are the most exposed to accidents on the road due to inexperience and immaturity,

as the statistics of accident and fatalities have amply demonstrated for too many years. In Italy, in fact, citing only the numbers, they lose their lives every year between 4. 000 and 5,000 people and 20,000 remain seriously disabled with clearly high costs for society as well as unspeakable suffering for the victims’ families. From his study, guided by faith in Jesus Christ, as he is keen to emphasize by stating that “only Jesus makes the difference”, there have therefore been many proposals appreciated by the Ministry of Transport, ASAPS Traffic Police, AIFVS, as well as various Diocese of the Catholic Church and have been reported in the most important automotive culture and safety magazines and websites.

How to detect a road accident

Here’s who to call when a traffic accident occurs

Those involved in the road accident can contact the following competent bodies:

  • call the local police
  • call 113 for emergency public help
  • contact 112 to alert the Carabinieri trying to take stock of the situation as much as possible by providing your personal details and indicating the place where the event took place
  • It is good to remind readers that by calling these numbers above, the call is completely free.

The intervention of the authorities

The intervention of the competent bodies can be contained in three distinct and separate operations. In a first phase, therefore, the authorities try to take stock of the situation on the various elements available. Then we move on to the second phase, the technical one.

In this case, whoever is responsible will aim to detect the road accident through:

  • the collection of the various witnesses present
  • descriptive collection of road conditions
  • control of the vehicles involved during the impact
  • control of the driving documents of the people involved
  • any photographic surveys

After this other phase, we move on to the analysis of all the information collected and we will try to formulate the conclusions in such a way as to be able to carry out the subsequent acts. Therefore, at the end of this last part, it will be possible to proceed with the registration for any violations of the highway code.

In conclusion

At the time of the road accident it is good to underline that all the people involved have the specific duty to stop and provide assistance to any injured persons as well as remove, where possible, elements that obstruct traffic.
