Move music equipment around Los Angeles safely


If you're planning to move musical instruments or equipment within LA, there are several strategies to minimize the risk of potential damage to your items. For those moving an upright or grand piano, you can find specialized guidance in our previous blog post on piano moving. Given that pianos typically weigh at least 500 lbs, it's critical to engage professional movers to ensure safety and prevent any damage to your property. For the relocation of other music-related items, we have a detailed checklist to safeguard your equipment during your upcoming move!


The significance of experience comes into play especially when your instrument needs to be relocated within a strict time frame in a bustling neighborhood. Performance venues often have narrow delivery windows for instruments preceding an event and stringent deadlines for clearing the premises afterward. We've been transporting pianos, musical instruments, and audio equipment across LA for years. Let us know your specific requirements, and we'll assist in making your move as smooth as possible.

Important things to know before you move musical equipment


Use Instrument Cases

Use them whenever possible. They are designed specially for moving and keeping instruments safe. In addition, we can provide additional boxes or other protection


Check the weather

Wooden instruments such as guitars, cellos, and auxiliary percussion instruments are sensitive to cold or humid weather, which can cause adverse effects.


Prevent Snapping Your Strings

Before packing for relocation, it's advisable to lessen the tension on stringed instruments like guitars, violins, basses, and cellos. This prevents any strain or potential damages during the moving process.


Special Boxes for Drums

Each component of a drum set necessitates individual packing. Double-walled cardboard moving boxes provide the necessary protection


Studio gear packaging

Keep the original studio gear packages. They can provide the best-fit protection during a move or for any other transportation needs.
