Important Notice for 2021

State of Maine Locations Currently Closed For Business

Due to the economical conditions and other considerations, we at Parks & Sons Piano Service have decided it would be best to take a year long hiatus. During this time Parks & Sons Piano Service will be closed for business as we explore options for becoming more profitable.

The website will remain open and fully functional, but we will not be booking appointments for piano servicing during this time.

We would like all our customers to know how much we appreciate that they have allowed us to service their pianos.

We will update this notice as we progresses through this hiatus.

To be clear - at this time, we have not decided to permanently close the service.

Thank you very, very much -
            Parks & Sons

Services :: Piano Moving

Some pretty unusaual stories have been told of a do-it-yourself piano moving that resulted the unexpected - injuries, damaged instruments, dented vehicles, crushed walls, scratched floors, and in at least one instance it was claimed to have started a fire. Of course many people have successfully moved their own piano, but piano moving is still just plain hard, heavy, and nerve-wracking work.

Parks & Sons can move your piano with the care needed to make it safely from point A to point B. Please Contact Us for moving quotes.

When contacting us about a piano move, the following information can help us provide a more accurate quote:

  • Piano Type
    • There are a few types of pianos, and providing the type will help us determine the instrument's approximate weight.

      Grand (measured from front edge of keyboard to back edge of piano lid):
      • Concert Grand (7' 4" or longer)
      • Medium Grand (5' 6" to 7' 6")
      • Small / "Baby" Grand (5' 8" or smaller)

      Vertical (measured from floor to top of lid):
      • Upright (51" or taller)
      • Studio (43" to 50")
      • Console (40" to 42")
      • Spinet (39" or smaller)

  • Piano's Current Location
    • Town
    • Access (driveway, ability to back truck up to an entrance, or such information)
    • What floor is the piano on
    • How many steps (if any) will be encountered when the piano is moved

  • Piano's Destination       (again)...
