A Great Start to the New Year!

A Great Start to the New Year!

Piano Moving Piano Moving Miami Piano Moving Savannah Piano Moving York Professional Piano Movers

All of the staff at Bob Haynes Piano Moving hope everyone is having a great new year thus far. The weeks leading up to Christmas were very busy as expected, but we pulled together and got all of our customers moves completed.

We normally experience a dramatic slow-down beginning in January each year but this year has been a bit different. Our professional piano moving company has been steady since the start of 2016 with our local move demand, as well as concert and artist piano rental moves.

The coastal runs have been more frequent than previous piano moving trips in the past. I would attribute some of this extra activity to the very mild winter we have been experiencing so far here in the East. The other part I would contribute to word of mouth traveling around of the great customer service and relations associated with Bob Haynes Piano Moving.

Our next southern run is scheduled for mid to late February and is growing in size daily. We plan on hitting all the normal stops including Roanoke, Raleigh, Winston Salem, Charlotte, Atlanta, Savannah, Augusta, Columbia, nags head, outer banks, Wilmington, Tallahassee, Tampa, Clearwater, Naples, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Palm Beach, Daytona, Orlando, Kissimmee, St. Augustine, and Jacksonville. We look forward to this run as it draws closer!

November Southern Run!

November Southern Run!

We just completed another southern run that covered about 4300 miles from start to finish. We started by picking up in Yonkers, New York and then on to New Jersey for another pickup, both were grand pianos. We then headed back to our shop in Dallastown, PA where we loaded the remainder of route’s pianos for delivery. We left with 12 pianos on the truck! With 9 more stops ahead of us, and a few more pianos to be picked up, we started our journey to the South again!

First stop, Cary, North Carolina, where we made our first delivery. Not far from Cary, we then delivered a parlor grand piano in Raleigh. Next up was Charlotte for a pickup that would eventually be delivered back North to the Harrisburg, PA area. Then it was off to Greenville, South Carolina for yet another pickup destined for Boynton Beach, Florida later in the trip.

Our first stop the next day took us to Atlanta, Georgia for the safe delivery of a baby grand piano from the Washington D.C. area. We then traveled down the west coast of Florida to Tampa, for an upright piano from a recording studio. Next to Clearwater, Florida, home of Randy’s Wholesale Pianos for the delivery of several more pianos. Randy’s Pianos is a regular stop for us and he has a great selection at wholesale prices, as well as having a great deal of sales. After this we made a delivery in Bradenton, Florida.

After a short rest, we ventured across “Alligator Alley,” to Miami – home of Piano Music Center; a Yamaha dealer and another regular stop on our route. After picking up two more grand pianos there (one going to the Poconos in Pennsylvania, and the other to the Church of Scientology, in New York) we made a delivery to Boynton beach. Our last stop for the evening was Palm Beach, Florida to pick up a Steinway Grand going to Asheville, North Carolina.

After a bit of rest, we then headed for Orlando, Florida for two separate piano deliveries. We stopped in town for the only sit down dinner the whole trip: Sonny’s Barbecue! What a well-deserved break it was! After leaving Orlando, we headed for Atlantic Beach Florida. Another piano off the truck, then finally finished with piano moving in Florida. Next stop: Savannah, Georgia, home to one of the largest Historic Landmark Districts in the United States. There was so much going on in Savannah, with so much to see and do. If only we didn’t have a tight schedule of moving pianos! Summerville, South Carolina was up next for a delivery of a piano we had been storing for about a year from York, Pennsylvania.

After another short rest period we traveled to Fort Bragg in central NC to deliver the piano we picked up in Savannah. Next was the delivery in Asheville, North Carolina, and then Winston Salem for our final stop. Wow, that was a long piano moving adventure! Now back to Shrewsbury, Pennsylvania to take a few days off for recuperating.

There & Back Again – A Southern Piano Moving Story

There & Back Again – A Southern Piano Moving Story

Piano Moving Piano Moving Miami Piano Moving Savannah Professional Piano Movers

Bob and the crew just returned from our latest piano moving run down south – all the way to sunny Florida. The crew left Sunday morning with a full truck of pianos all bound for delivery throughout the Southeastern US

Our first stop along the piano moving route was Charlottesville, Virginia for the delivery of a vertical piano we picked up in Philadelphia. Leaving Charlottesville, we were headed to Raleigh, North Carolina for two stops – one a console piano delivery from Lancaster and the other a delivery from State College, PA. From there we made a delivery of a baby grand piano to Harrisburg, North Carolina; a small town about an hour and a half southwest of Raleigh. We safely delivered a baby grand we picked up while traveling through Baltimore.

After the Harrisburg piano delivery, we were off to Columbia, South Carolina to drop off a baby grand we have had in our storage facility for almost three years! Our customer was excited to say the least to get her piano back after completing construction of their new home. Columbia is a large city in central South Carolina that spans about five exits on I-26 and takes about an hour to go from one side of the city to the other.

For some reason we had no stops in Georgia during this run, which is very rare. We normally have several stops in Atlanta, GA every piano-delivery run. We did stop in Georgia at exit 3 on I 95 to one of our favorite places to get BBQ for lunch. Turns out it’s also a favorite with the crew of Orange County Choppers on their way to Daytona for bike week!!

We finally arrived in Ormond Beach, FL for our first stop in the beautiful sunny state on Tuesday. We delivered a baby grand from Rockville Maryland. We plan to return to Ormond Beach for a pickup of an antique Steinway grand player piano that was a full restoration of a 1917 model. What a beautiful piano!

The next stop was Orlando to drop off a few furniture pieces to Bob’s Father-in-law.  After leaving Orlando the guys were headed for Clearwater, FL for a delivery and a pickup of two baby grand pianos for Randy’s Wholesale Pianos. Randy has some of the best prices on high quality pianos in the South! You should check it out next time you are in Clearwater. Tell them Bob sent you!

Next up was a delivery of another grand piano to Cape Coral, Florida – a piano we picked up in Annapolis, Maryland. The gulf coast is one of Bob’s favorite part of Florida for its awesome fishing and laid back lifestyle within the surrounding beauty. And speaking of beautiful places, our next stop to Marco Island is the definition of sheer beauty! To our knowledge, this is the only place where “panther” traffic signs can be seen along the roads going through it!

Our Southern-most stop this run was Miami which took us a cross “Alligator Alley” from the Gulf Coast. Throughout this area alligators, snakes, turtles, and other wildlife can be seen from the road. Alligator Alley is on the northern tip of the Everglades National Forest. We delivered a baby grand piano to a very excited mother who had given up her piano to her daughter 17 years ago. Finally she had the piano back home. We then headed for Ft. Lauderdale to pick up a baby grand bound for Washington, D.C. After that we stopped in Palm Beach to get another baby grand that was destined for Potomac, Maryland. Palm Beach is nestled between the beach and intercostal giving a view of water on both sides. It’s white spectacular to see! Once finished there we were off to Orlando for a day of well-deserved rest and recuperation. There we learned the game of pickle ball, a popular local game that resembles tennis with a much larger ball and small solid rackets, and karaoke that evening.

The next morning we were back on the road headed to Daytona Beach to deliver a baby grand we had picked up for a retired couple back in Bel Air, Maryland. Upon leaving Daytona, we headed for Savannah, Georgia for an upright that will go to Philadelphia later this month. Next up was the long drive back North to Reston, Virginia to drop off one of the grand pianos from Florida. We hit Potomac and D.C. before finally returning back to York, PA. Another eventful run south completed! Pianos safe and secure.
