Piano Removals Service - Fully Trained Staff In Upright and Grand Piano's

If you are looking for a professional piano removals company then look no further; here at Essex House Removals we have a team of fully trained and experienced piano removers that can move a wide range of pianos. We can move your grand piano, upright piano, baby grand piano, concert grand piano or any small or large piano. Essex House Removals are fully insured and equipped piano removals experts and can safely move your piano over all types of terrain; we also have the experience, knowledge and skills to move pianos upstairs and downstairs as well as in and out of difficult places and awkward shaped rooms. We understand that a piano is a highly prized and loved addition to a home and this is why we don’t think piano removals is a job for amateurs who don’t have the correct moving equipment. We don’t feel that piano moving is a task suited to DIY (doing it yourself) due to the size, weight and shape of pianos as this can make them very tricky to handle and also extremely dangerous in the wrong hands. A piano removal is about technique and skill, not about strength; if done wrong it can cause damage to the piano, the home or building it is being taken from and delivered to and also to the person’s health who is removing the piano.
Our piano removers will protect your piano with a high quality moving cover and it will be moved onto a specialist moving dolly. Once the piano is out of your home we will carefully wheel your piano up a removal ramp into the secure removals vehicle, taking it to the destination of your choice.
When you choose Essex House Removals for your piano removal you can rest assured we will treat your piano with the greatest care and respect.

Packing Services


Here at Essex House Removals we know how daunting it can be to pack up the belongings in your home. That is why we have a team of professional and experienced packers. We can pack up your larger, more awkward shaped or fragile items or we can pack the belongings you choose us to pack or we can come to your house and pack everything for you while you are out at work or away on holiday, this last service is known as our Premium Packing Service.
The aim of our packers is to take away a little more of the stress of moving house by packing your belongings for you in a safe and secure manner to ensure that your belongings and possessions are protected during transportation from your old house to your new home.
We offer a Premium Packing Service, this includes;
•Professional and High Quality Packing Materials
•The Packing of all Household Items and Out Buildings
•Dismantling and Reassembling of all Large Furniture as Required
•A Team of Two Fully-Trained and Experienced Packers

If you have concerns about larger or more fragile items then there is really no need to worry, we can help move your fragile items such as crockery, glassware and ornaments safely and without damage during transit.
However, if you would like to do your house packing yourself we can give you the packaging materials you will need, for a small charge. If you let us know what you need we can include the price of your packaging materials in with the overall cost of your move. We have all the packaging materials you might need, including sturdy boxes in various sizes, rolls of bubble wrap, tissue paper, packing tape, wardrobe cartons and more.
If you would like the stress of packing removed from your house move then give us a call, we would be more than happy to help.

Couldn’t be happier, just moved a 3 bedroom house to a tiny cottage 200 miles away and the guys were on top form both days. Everything was packed securely and all furniture was covered or wrapped in protective carriers. Nothing was too much trouble, couldn’t recommend more. Friendly, professional and very hard working - thank you for everything you guys did! Dan Claydon


The hardest working nicest people you will ever meet. Cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you doesn't cover it, they managed my elderly Mother's move with such kindness and care and worked so damn hard my head spun watching them. Excellent service performed by lovely people. M x .. Manda Holroyd


Two guys were a credit to the company . They protected our furniture and carpets at both locations . I highly recommend and will be using again to move again. Many thanks again David


I used Essex House Removals after getting a few other quotes as I found them to be the most professional. On the morning of the move 3 guys turned up and got to work straight away. They covered all of our furniture during the transition between the house and the van and cleared my 4 bedroom house within 2 hours. By the time I arrived at the new house they were already there waiting to unload. Again the van was unloaded within 2 hours and all the boxes and furniture was placed in the correct rooms. They even asked us to go round and check in case anything had been placed in the wrong rooms, none had. I would definitely use Essex House Removals again and would not hesitate to recommend them to any of my friends or family. They was also very polite and eager to help in any way they could. They definitely took 1 stress out of moving. Julie


Essex removals are in my opinion great, I have used this company 3 times now and every time they have done excellent work. They are very helpful and they cover all of our furniture, they take all the stress out of moving. I would highly recommend them to anyone Robby


Essex House Removals was an amazing every step of our move. 1st Chris came in to give us a quote and he was very pleasant and professional. I was also very impressed by the speed Chris responded to my emails and questions throughout the process. Then the packing day Danielle and Kirsty were fantastic. They packed my stuff as if they were their own and as a bonus they were sooo nice and fun to be around at times I forgot I was moving:) Martin was also with them the packing day and was busy dismantling our furniture. He did a fantastic job both on the packing day and the moving day when he was assembling the furniture back together. The guys who were moving us on 2nd day including Martin were all hard working and very considerate. Seriously thank you Essex House Removals! I moved 5 times in USA and then from USA to London so I know how stressful it can be. Essex House Removals made it a breeze for us. Super Company made by super people. Thank you all. Lale Aytulu


Thoroughly recommend Essex House Removals. Very efficient, friendly and flexible. Our completion date kept changing and EHR fell in with our plans each time. The team we very friendly and made a very stressful time much easier by taking care of all our removal needs. Would also thoroughly recommend the packing service, everything was very carefully wrapped and cared for as if they were their own belongings. The team could not have done more for us, their advice, care and kind words made the day we were dreading quite amusing. Jacqueline Sugden


Essex House Removals were able at very short notice to move my Daughter in the week before Christmas. The guys worked very hard to load and unload such that my Daughter's new property felt like a home when they left and not just rooms with everything piled up. The removal men were polite and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. There was absolutely no damage at all to everything that was moved. I would have no hesitation in recommending them. Graham Bartholomew


Arriving early the gentleman were efficient and helpful moving everything we asked them to with a professional and thoughtful attitude putting every piece of furniture where we wanted it. I would recommend Essex House Removals to anyone. Chris who we dealt with in the office was fabulous with us too. Nicola Burbidge


Well what can we say a great team of guys hard working from start to finish. Very professional and organised. Provided clean covers for items. Took care of everything they dismantled, assembled and moved. Very pleasant, friendly and they shared the hard work to which we thought was a very fair and considerate way of working. They were forward thinking on arrival to new property making sure that everything went in the right room etc. We must say that we moved from a lovely house to a property that needed work to which they were very positive and gave words of encouragement - thank you for that guys!!!! Communication by Chris from first contact to last was excellent, always kept updated. Dawn Hurlock Big thank you to Chris and his Team for making the move so pleasant and stress free as you guys had it in hand. Appreciated the odd joke or two and understanding that it was difficult to move from the family home. Definitely highly recommended excellent value for money and Chris was not pushy at all at the initial assessment - very pleasant and organised. To promote the good service I have handed out leaflets in the local town to Estate Agents credit where credit due. Thanks again guys xx


Couldn't recommend this company highly enough and they were fantastic value for money. We chose to use the packing service which meant that I could relax before the move. Everything was professional wrapped and nothing got broken. On moving day a team of 4 worked tirelessly and with good humour all day and they didn't leave until we were happy with each item of furniture's position. Nicky Thanks to Chris's team our move was stress free and the hnpacking was quickly completed. We will never move ourselves again after this experience!


We had to move in a hurry as there was a very strong chance we would not be buying our new place because of legal issues there and might have had to go into store. The response was quick and professional and we felt we could trust. On the day the boys and vans turned up as promised and we were very impressed by their work rate and professionalism. At the new address they coped admirably with the very tricky site and showed considerable patience as we waited to get in. Once they had the nod they went for gold and finished in record time. They pointed out a fault with a piece of furniture and were humorous and helpful throughout. It was a stressful day made so much better by their easy going attitudes. I don't want to move again in a hurry but if I had to, these boys would be our first choice. Barry Mothersole


Chris and his team were absolutely amazing and made moving with a baby a breeze. Our old address is not the easiest to access (down a pedestrianised hill), but no one complained at all and everyone was in great spirits throughout. Five star! Clare Hopping


Chris and his guys are the very best!!! I will highly recommend Credit Crunch Movers, definitely not so called because they are not professionals! On the contrary, You get great service for your money. What was to have been a difficult move from Essex to Milton Keynes was made as easy as possible by this happy and easy-going team. They were there promptly and we started at 6am, didn't finish till 6pm thereabouts and they only stopped for a coffee break at about 11am. The job was done effectively and with great care from the start, they were so helpful and smiled throughout. All was placed as marked in the new house and furniture dismantling and reassembling was quite professionals done too. Please look no further than Chris Potts and his lovely helpful team. Remarkable guys indeed. Not a cheap move but worth every penny! We are quite grateful and satisfied. Thank you guys. God bless you all. Vicky Golden


We moved long distance from Essex to Cornwall. Chris and his colleagues were courteous and professional from start to finish and they also provided a very cost effective quote. Even though we ended up arriving very much later than planned, we found our stuff already moved in to our new home. It was a great relief and I really must recommend their service for four reasons: Cost, Courtesy, Professionalism and simply, getting the job. What else could you need? John Williams


These guys get the job done quickly and efficiently would definitely recommend, Jake Curtis


I highly recommend this company, Not the easiest move by far, after many quotes and refusals to move me by other company's i am so impressed with the service. They actually care about you and your belongings, big thanks to Chris & the guys, you have done an amazing job today, you went above and beyond, I am very grateful xx Daisy

We purchase redundant and waste cartons from businesses all across the north east and our team at Norton Packaging carefully sort them by hand so that we only sell top quality boxes and the scrap can be recycled. There is no manufacturing involved so we don’t use any machinery, this means our environmental impact is very minimal.

We provide lead generation to the removal and storage sectors, covering 99.6% of the UK housing market. Initially, we talk with you to decide what level of Home Movers you wish to target.

Based on these measures, we begin supplying you with a regular weekly source of Home Mover leads in the postcode areas matching your selections. The Remover can fine tune the postcode areas to cover and can also set the number of leads received on a weekly basis. This way the cost per week can be set and budgeted for. We offer help and advice with the many different levels of leads available from addresses only right through to us doing your marketing and posting out.
