Professional Piano Moving Since 1978

~ The Gentle Piano Movers ~


Since 1978, Pro Piano Move, Inc. has been the Seattle Metro Area’s premier piano mover—and the first-choice mover for the biggest piano stores in Northwest Washington. As professional piano movers we understand the love and care that needs to go into each move of your delicate and treasured instrument. Every move has unique challenges, but with 40 years of piano moving experience, we can handle even the most (seemingly) impossible jobs.

We move pianos in, around, and between Seattle, Tacoma, Puget Sound, Kitsap County, Everett, Olympia, Bellingham, and across Washington State. We can even coordinate nationwide piano moves and provide piano crating services for shipping worldwide.


Our glowing reviews speak volumes about our superior service, care, and attention to detail. We promise to deliver your upright or grand piano from A to B in perfect condition, positioned to your specifications, in a timely manner (often on short notice—Need to move last minute? We’ll do our best to accommodate you--after hours, if need be. Additional fees may apply).

Rave Reviews

  • "Wonderful... pleasant, on time, helpful"

    These fellows were wonderful.... pleasant, on time, helpful. We moved here from Michigan and needed our upright piano moved to our son's home about 7 miles away. They got it safely in place, expertly navigating corners, stairs, and doors, put together the piano bench en route to our destination, and played a bit of jazz for us to celebrate when they were done. Great introduction to Seattle!

  • "Customer for Life"

    I bought my daughter a beautiful small upright piano [...] it had to be moved THAT DAY…  That's when Billy put on his Superman cape and saved the day!  He called his guys and convinced them to squeeze me in! Pro Piano Move showed up right when they said they would and were incredibly professional and efficient.  They were sweet and kind and so so careful with our new-to-us piano. I am so so appreciative to Billy and his crew for bending over backwards to help me get this perfect piano for my daughter.  They made a customer for life out of me!

    -Mrs. W, Bothell, WA

  • "Great professional team."

    “Billy, and his crew were the best of professional movers I have ever dealt with. This was a small job but it was challenging (figuring whether to hoist a couch up my balcony or get it in through the hallway). I spoke to Billy several times, sent pictures and couch dimensions, and they took the job for a flat rate. They delivered beyond my expectations. Great professional team.”

    -Jose, Sacramento, CA

  • "Don't waste your time finding anyone else..."

    I spent hours calling and waiting for quotes from all moving companies and 'piano movers'. [...] I called a piano store in Seattle and they recommended Pro Piano Move because that's who they use. Pro Piano Move was prompt, detailed, and so fast! Not to mention competitive pricing. Other outfits wanted to charge more for an upright. Alton and Cody are top notch! Thanks you guys!

    -Matt, Seattle, WA

  • "These guys are so impressive."

    If it’s possible to make a piano move look easy, Alton, Raheem and Max did exactly that. That’s a reflection of their hard work and expertise. They paid special attention not to scratch the floors and to be careful of the surroundings. And they handled stairs no problem. Best of all, they were kind and enjoyable to work with. These guys are so impressive. Definitely the right call!

~ How The Pros Move Your Piano ~

Your piano is

Leave it to the Pros!


You can seriously hurt yourself trying to move a piano. Many pianos weigh a quarter ton or more! One of our customers, her husband and son tried to move an upright themselves and her husband threw out his back. Any loss of balance when moving it could damage your piano, your home, or worse: you!

Even the most simple move can create unexpected challenges where you end up injuring yourself. That's why our movers are extensively trained in the art of moving pianos.
