We only work with pianos and organs, as specialist piano movers since 1979, we have learned all the strategies to successfully completing your move with the greatest care to your instrument and property. Piano moving is not a task suited to D.I.Y.! The weight and size of pianos make them very difficult to handle, and they can be extremely dangerous In the hands of someone not trained in piano moving. Piano moving is not about strength, but technique, with a good understanding of balance and weight distribution. An attempt to move a piano, or organ, can cause damage to the instrument and your home or building.... not to mention the damage to health. Even being aware of the risks, many people hesitate to call professional piano movers because they mistakenly believe the cost for piano moving is high, or that the piano movers won't show up on time.
Rest assured, 'Astra Piano Removals' treat every piano with the greatest care and respect whilst offering very reasonable prices

The Company, Astra Piano Removals, was founded by the present owner, Mr. Kevin Barton, in 1986, continuing the work of Metro Piano Removals and incorporating Express Piano Deliveries, which was started in the early 1970’s. The focus, then, was on the piano trade, moving pianos all around the UK, specifically for piano shops, factories, tuners, restorers and institutions.
In the early nineties, with the growth of the Internet, the company began focusing on the growing public demand. Since then, the company has remained relatively small and family-run with emphasis on maintaining its professional and friendly service traditions.
We’ve handled all types of pianos over the years, including: Steinway; Bosendorfer; Yamaha; Bechstein; Kawai; Bluthner; Welmar; Kemble and many more, moving these well-know instruments for schools; universities; concert halls; councils; piano trade and the general public.
Throughout the company’s history, it has enjoyed working for key customers, moving Pianos for the Royal Family [St. James Palace]; the QE2; EMI Music; London Symphony Orchestra; Abbey Road Recording Studios; Government Party Conferences; Vladimir Yurovsky (conductor); Jeremy Northam (actor) and Sting.
You can feel safe and secure, knowing that your piano, whether big, small, inexpensive or expensive, will be in the hands of experienced and trained professionals. We pride ourselves on being able to offer a value-added, friendly service.
