...is the cost of the move can be more than the price of the piano. The pros here in Tucson charge about $200. I can get amateurs to do it for about $80 or so, but then I risk messing up the finish. Of course, if the finish is messed up already,

It's really sweet to play on a wonderful piano in a wonderful room, because the instrument and room help you so much, but... unless we can afford to only ever play on the best pianos in the best rooms, one must contend with reality as well Glad you
