To prepare a piano for a major move, you first need to close and lock the spinet’s lid (if your piano has one) and the keyboard lid. Then, securely wrap the piano in moving blankets or a piano cover, securing the blankets with a heavy duty tape (like packing tape). If you are moving it within a residence, you might not need to wrap the piano. Always exercise caution. Also, if moving a piano bench with it, make sure to remove anything from inside the bench.
