Any recommendations for a good seat cushion (ergonomic I guess)? The chair I sit in is solid as I rock and I tend to get back pain after awhile.

I have had many pianos moved and I have not enjoyed watching the process at all. However, they never damaged or scratched any of my instruments. It sounds like they did their job correctly in your case. Don't worry; be happy!
