2.Lift the piano straight up, utilizing at least two people, depending upon the weight of the piano. Alternatively, two people can tip one of the short ends of the piano toward the ground, lifting the opposite end into the air. Take care to never support the weight of the piano on one or both of the thin front legs.
3.Place a four-wheeled dolly under the piano, using another person who is not involved in the lifting. Place it under the center of the piano and toward the rear, since there is more weight toward the back end than toward the front where the keys are. Set the piano onto the dolly, ensuring that you have it balanced so it won't fall when you let go.
4.Roll the piano toward the truck. Take care to stabilize the piano with your hands while going over any bumps or dips in the ground.
5.Pull the ramp out of your moving truck and lock it into place.
6.Position one person at the lead end of the piano to pull and guide the piano up the ramp. Two more people should be at the bottom end to push. This latter position will be the heavy end, so two strong people are necessary to push the upright piano up the ramp of your moving truck while the first person leads the way to the cargo area.
7.Move the piano to the side of the truck, with the back side of it facing the inside wall of the truck. If any damage occurs due to scraping against the wall, it will likely be confined to the back of the piano where it will not be seen.
8.Use your team lift strategy to either lift the piano or tip it to one side so one person can remove the dolly. Set the piano into place and secure it using cloth straps. Drive to your destination.
9.Remove the strap and lift the piano onto the dolly again when you arrive at your destination.
10.Move the upright piano to your ramp and carefully ease it down, remembering that the heavy end is facing down the incline. At least two people should be on this end to control the pace at which you move the piano down the ramp.
11.Transport the piano to its new home, position it in the proper location and lift or tip the piano to remove the dolly.
12.Take off any wrapping or padding after the piano is in place.
