Annapolis – Moving Pianos and Eating Blue Crabs

Annapolis – Moving Pianos and Eating Blue Crabs

Piano Moving Piano Moving Annapolis

The last two weeks have found us staying mostly in the local area, traveling from Harrisburg, PA, down to Annapolis, MD, then on to D.C. and Northern VA. Alexandria was a popular city for piano moves last week with a total of four. Alexandria is just across the Woodrow Wilson Bridge on 95/495 with lots to see being such an old city, and how it has been shaped over time by close proximity to our nation’s capital.

Another “hotspot” for piano moves last week was Annapolis, MD. We had quite a few jobs in this gorgeous, Chesapeake Bay city that boasts plenty of marinas and Maryland’s famous blue crabs. Annapolis is one of our favorite cities to visit when moving pianos and a great place to stop and eat!

This week Baltimore seemed to be where all the piano moving action is. The majority of our moves this week have been in Baltimore County; from up north in Sparks, all the way down to Curtis bay, we covered the entire county! One of our more notable jobs was a Steinway grand piano move that started in Towson, MD, and arrived in Pikesville. We had to move the grand piano up two narrow flights of stairs, but the job went smoothly. Next we were off to Columbia, MD in Howard County. There is plenty to see there with a beautiful countryside and a variety of piano stores and technicians to do work for.

Next week we will be on the Eastern Shore for a run of several pianos, and as always we will be looking forward to see where else the week will take us!

Local Piano Moves and a Ravens Pep Rally!

Local Piano Moves and a Ravens Pep Rally!

Piano Moving Piano Moving Lancaster Pianos Professional Piano Movers

Last week found us doing local piano moves and last minute moves before the holiday season arrives. We started the week in Hanover to pick up ten pianos for Menchey Music Service, delivering them to Carlisle and Reading, PA. In between we made stops in York, Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, Lancaster, Quarryville, and Fawn Grove. Our piano delivery to Reading was a Yamaha Avant Grand, which is a relatively new model with curves on both sides.  It was quite an experience taking the grand piano up a split level! That was a tough one but the piano move was a success! We finished up on Saturday with a piano delivery in Rockville, MD.

This week found us traveling around the local area again but with more piano moves in Northern, VA and D.C.  The highlight of the week was delivering a piano to the Baltimore Ravens training facility in Owings Mills for a pep rally in anticipation of their first game of the season! The Ravens staff were very friendly with the crew and even gave shirts and hats to each crew member! We picked up the piano on Friday just after the rally and got to see some of the festivities – which was VERY COOL! .Menchey Music provided the Yamaha piano for the Ravens rally.  We are definitely looking forward to the next one!

Next week will find us on the Eastern shore for some piano moves and maybe even a little fishing along the way!

Busiest Southern Run – Moving Pianos Upstairs

Busiest Southern Run – Moving Pianos Upstairs

Piano Moving Piano Moving Lancaster Professional Piano Movers

The last two weeks have been the busiest we have been all summer!

We had our Southern run starting on the 28th of July, lasting through the 5th of August. Our first stops were Chesapeake Virginia and VA Beach to deliver four pianos for Jordan Kitts Music. We then headed to Wilmington, NC for two deliveries of a baby grand piano and a full grand. Wilmington is very beautiful and it was a pleasure traveling through. We then shot over to Atlanta for two more piano deliveries, then hit Tampa, Clearwater, and Sarasota, FL. We stopped for a quick break before continuing on to Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, Veto Beach, Port St. Lucie, and St. Augustine for both pickups and deliveries of various size pianos. You have to love traveling by the beaches in Florida! They have to be the most beautiful beaches in the country, especially in Miami, with such lush vegetation and array of colorful flowers scattered about. After leaving Florida we ventured off to Columbia, South Carolina located centrally in the state. Then we headed back to North Carolina to take care of our central and western stops in Raleigh, Carey, Winston Salem, Greensboro, and Asheville, North Carolina. The Blue Ridge Mountains are certainly breathtaking even though it makes for a slow go in the truck. We finally ended up in Blacksburg, VA to pick up a baby grand piano on its way to the northern part of the state. Then we returned back to the office. Wow, what a big trip! In all, we had 28 stops for one of the biggest Southern runs ever at Bob Haynes Piano Moving!

Last week found us back on local routes to the Baltimore, D.C., Northern VA, Harrisburg, Hanover, York, and the Lancaster, PA areas.  One of the highlights took place at the Lancaster Bible College in Lancaster, PA. They have a Steinway D which is a 9 foot concert grand located in the chapel behind the stage area.  It needed to be moved to a classroom upstairs. Naturally the piano is too large to fit in the elevator, so the stairs were the only path we could take. It took a crew of five very experienced piano movers to tackle the 26 stairs with two turns. It was a slow go and the piano barely had room to make the turns but two hours later we had the piano safely upstairs and set up, playing just like a Steinway D should. The staff were amazed after watching the process and very pleased they could make use of the piano where it was really needed. That’s a very satisfying feeling for us.

At Bob Haynes Piano Moving we had lots going on last week. We spent the week delivering 60 pianos to the Anne Arundel School District and moving 64 pianos to the University of Maryland, Baltimore campus!

The start of the week took us to Hanover, PA, Severna Park in Annapolis, Shady Side, Crofton, Fort Meade, Glen Burnie, Davidsonville, Seven, and Bowie, Maryland. We then delivering new Yamaha p22 upright pianos to all of the schools in the Anne Arundel County School District.

Our next order of business was to deliver 8 Yamaha baby grand pianos, as well as 16 Yamaha vertical pianos to the University of Maryland in Baltimore. The university just finished construction on a new performing arts building in which we were awarded the contract for moving the pianos to the facility.  This week has us delivering and setting up 41 Yamaha clavinovas for a lab at the same university. This last piano move will bring our week to an end.

We are gearing up for our next run from south New York to Miami, Florida. Naturally this includes moving pianos to everywhere in between! So far we have approximately 15 stops scheduled and have just a few openings left.

One of our favorite places to deliver pianos to is Lancaster, Pennsylvania!  Known as Amish Country, Lancaster has some of the most beautiful farmland in the state. It’s easy to tell the Amish farms from the others by look for the green curtains, lack of modern tractors or machinery, and of course, the horse and buggy. We always find it interesting to see the many buggies traveling down the roads when driving in and around Lancaster.

Lancaster has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years with many modern, upscale developments being built. This is where we come in. Bob Haynes Piano Moving delivers a large quantity of pianos to Lancaster County and in the city.

Lancaster is rich with performing arts centers. One of our regular, and favorite stops is the Chameleon Club on Prince Street. It is a small-sized concert hall but is host to many high end performances from top bands in country music! Lancaster also hosts a program to benefit less fortunate kids who are interested in playing piano, but otherwise could not afford it.

Every year we take part in a Lancaster program called “Music for Everyone,” where donated pianos are taken to various schools and professional art studios to have an artist’s touch applied to them. The pianos are then taken to various street corner locations throughout the city where they can be played by anyone. At the end of the week they are auctioned off one by one. This event is covered by the local news and media and we look forward to it each year.

As you can see, Lancaster is rich in culture and diversity and ranks as one of our favorite destinations for piano moving.

Bob Haynes Piano Moving is the best choice for relocating your piano to or from Lancaster. Our professional piano movers take pride in making sure your piano is moved safely to its new home.

Bob Haynes Piano Moving just got back from our monthly run south from New York to Miami!

There were total of 19 stops throughout the trip. We worked our way down to Virginia where we picked up 2 Steinway concert grand pianos on loan to Nordstom’s Department Store. Next we picked up a grand piano from Knoxville, TN, followed by Atlanta, and eventually Clear View, FL where we picked up another Steinway concert grand headed for Canada. From there we headed over to Miami, across Alligator Alley for several deliveries (love that stretch of road along the Everglades).

After our stop in Miami, we went up the East Coast of Florida. We did several piano pickups and deliveries in Boca Raton, Vero Beach, and St. Augustine. Our next stop was in Savannah, home of the spooky looking moss covered trees and one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in the United States! Next up, we hit the gorgeous coast of North Carolina into Wilmington, and New Bern. We then picked up two more pianos in NC before heading back home. The team at Bob Haynes Piano Moving is already looking forward to next Month’s run! Until then, we will keep busy with our daily route, moving pianos from Harrisburg, PA to Washington D.C.

We are experts in moving pianos across the East Coast and the journey is always fun and exciting!  Contact us today and we will safely pick up your piano and move it to its new home!
