We just completed our next run, moving pianos down South and left the Bob Haynes Piano Moving office in York PA with 12 pianos on board. The trip started out by picking up a baby grand piano on the Eastern Shore of Maryland to be delivered to Atlanta, Georgia. We then headed to College Park to pick up another piano headed for Tampa, Florida. One more pickup in Springfield, VA and we were on our way South!
Our first delivery was in Charlotte, NC which involved a vertical piano going up a flight of stairs. We then travelled to Atlanta to deliver the first piano we picked up from Maryland. Next stop was west coast of Florida to drop off the piano in Tampa and the over to St. Petersburg. Next up was Sarasota for the delivery of a concert grand.
I always enjoy the next leg of the journey, crossing alligator alley. Yes it’s a bit of a drive but seeing the edge of the Everglades and all the wildlife makes it quite enjoyable. We snapped a photo of an alligator and armadillo while traveling through to our next stop, the Florida Keys!! Wow it sure is a beautiful place to see. We picked up a baby grand (with a flight of stairs) downtown that got delivered to the outer banks. On our way up the coast we had stops in Miami, Daytona Beach, Cocoa Beach, and then on up to South Carolina. After a grand piano delivery in Wilmington North Carolina, we ended our run in Raleigh with an antique upright grand piano that had been in the owner’s family for two generations.
Six days in all and a total of eighteen stops on this piano-movin’ run down South! Overall an enjoyable trip with every customer extremely happy with their deliveries. Looking forward to the next southern piano moving trip that will happen at the end of March into April. Let’s keep ‘em coming!
