If you need to move a piano, hopefully you'll have professional help available. If you decide to ask friends, you will have to give them very clear instructions to avoid inflicting damage to bodies and objects. Here are a few steps to help you move your piano from one location to another.
 
Moving an Upright Piano From Room to Room or House to House
1 Assign a team of four movers and place two at each end of the piano. Let no one other than your assigned movers touch the piano.
2 Make sure none of the movers has a history of back problems.
3 Make sure your helpers are wearing work gloves to protect their hands.
4 Cover the piano with protective plastic if you have to move it outside for transport.
5 Make sure the lid is down and locked.
6 Give your movers very specific instructions on how and where to move the piano safely.
7 Put the piano on a heavy-duty dolly. This will preserve tuning. It will also keep movers from damaging the piano or your home.
8 Remember to lift and roll the piano endways.
9 Keep hold of the handle behind the piano all the time it is rolling.
10 Be careful rolling the dolly over thresholds and door jambs.
11 Make certain that the piano won't tip over by being pushed over any obstacle too fast.
 
Move a Piano Within a Room
1 Make sure the piano you want to move is easily accessible from all sides.
2 Make sure the new location you have have chosen is suitable for the piano. Do not move it into cold drafts or close to heating devices.
3 Lower the lid and lock it before you start moving.
4 Position at least one person on each end of the piano if you are moving an upright piano.
5 Move the piano endways, not sideways.
6 Make sure you do not bend your back when handling the piano to avoid severe back strain or injury. Lift with your knees bent and your back straight.
7 Be certain there are no obstacles in the way the piano is moving.
8 Be careful not to strain the legs of the piano if you have to move it on carpeting or over a threshold.
9 Move the piano slowly and carefully, just a few inches at a time.
10 Put at least three persons around a grand piano, one at each leg.
11 Take enough weight off the casters to make it roll more easily, but do not lift it off the floor.
12 Make sure you lift the casters over bumps in the floor, one leg at a time.

Whether using piano movers or doing it yourself, these are the steps to  move a horizontal or baby grand style piano.
 
Use 3 men for a petite or baby grand, at least 4 men for a parlor, ballroom, or concert grand.  If the piano is going up or down flights of stairs, use at least 4 men.
Use a box, tub, or speed pack (moving bin) to keep the parts together.  Wrap all finished items in pads, and place all hardware in a box.
Remove the music rack or “lyre” by pulling forward toward you.
Take the top or lid off by removing the pins with needle nose pliers, covering the jaws with cloth or tape.  Have one or 2 men hold the lid while one man works the pins free.
Take the hinge pin out of the prop (2 pieces) and remove it.
Remove the pedal assembly by removing the screws that attach it.  There are braces at the back of the assembly that fit into slots at each end, secure the assembly when removing the screws so the braces don’t drop.  Mark the attached push rods left, middle, right as you face them so there is no confusion at reassembly.
Roll up a pad and tape it in 2 or 3 spots so it stays in the shape of a tube.  Place the tube on top of the closed keyboard to keep it from opening and closing when the piano is placed on its side.  Take 2 pads and overlap them to completely cover the top of the piano.  Use tape or rubber bands to secure.
Place a piano board running parallel to the flat side of the piano.  Attach 2 piano straps to the board to secure the piano.  The raised lip of the piano board should be at the keyboard end of the piano.
Remove the left front leg by positioning 1 person under the piano at the left end of the keyboard.  2 others should support the same corner.  If there are screws the person underneath should remove them and then turn the retaining block so that the long end points away from the leg.  Before actually removing the legs the person under the piano should move out from underneath it while the 2 others lift the corner up.  Mark the legs left, right, and back as some pianos have legs that aren’t interchangeable.
Lower the left front corner down onto the piano board.  Lift the piano while lowering so excessive stress isn’t placed on the 2 remaining legs.  Position the piano to an upright position onto the piano board.  Make sure the sound board is secured before moving the piano on the board. The keyboard end of the piano should be tight against the raised lip on the board
Remove the 2 remaining legs, making sure that one person holds the piano steady.  To remove a leg, slide it toward the center of the piano until it is free and can be pulled out of the slot.  It is called a key and slot method of attachment.
Strap the piano to the board with 2 straps making sure additional padding is placed between the piano and the strap so the edges of the piano aren’t dented or rubbed.  Tie the loose ends of the straps together for more security.
The piano is ready to move.  There are 4 handles on a piano board so it can be carried or a 4 wheel dolly can be placed underneath the board to roll the piano out to the transporting vehicle.
If possible use a vehicle with a lift gate, otherwise a ramp or walk board is an OK method to get the piano up onto the truck.  The piano should be transported on the board and strapped tightly in the load.
