As the NY area’s largest piano dealer, our piano storage rooms are safe (and fully insured), and are climate-controlled, to ensure safe piano storage of any duration. Our state-of-the-art piano storage and restoration facility has much considerable warehouse space, so we provide piano storage services for reasonable rates.
We store our clients’ pianos as carefully and safely as we store our own pianos!
Important factors to consider when evaluating piano storage needs:
Dust must be kept away from pianos, especially the ‘moving’ components within the action of a piano, as well as the piano ‘finish’, which can be made dull or scratched by dust.
Our piano storage facility is kept very clean, which keeps dust to a minimum. Moreover, our stored pianos are fully wrapped, first by thick padded blankets (to protect from physical damage), and then by plastic wrap (to further protect from dust).
Climate (humidity and temperature) is a key determinant of a piano’s life, and must be maintained at moderate and constant levels to ensure proper care of the wood, felt, and strings of a piano.
Our piano storage facility is kept at a constant climate, 24x7.
Pianos are valuable. Our piano storage facility is locked at all times, and is guarded with security cameras. We have never had a piano stolen, but if this did occur (or if a piano were otherwise damaged), all the pianos we store are fully insured.
If a piano is not stored properly it risks being damaged. Changes in climate (humidity and temperature) under a piano’s high string tension can cause the warping of its wood. Below are some pictures of weathered pianos, cracked pinblock & soundboards, resulting from improper piano storage.
