Gallery: Hang a 1,000-lb piano from a wall!
The Challenge: What do you do when you want to hang a 1,000-lb., 9-foot Concert Grand Piano on a wall, like a picture, over 8 feet in the air?
The Solution: Think outside the box! Design a custom skid to prop and suspend piano while moving it into place. Figure a way to lift it, line it up and hang it within limited working space.
This was a challenging one of a kind piano moving job for Braymore. (Not shown in the images: the floor we are working on is actually a balcony. Hence the railing, narrow aisle and floor weight capacities to consider and calculate.) This move drew quite a crowd and applause when everything was done.

Thats it! Remove the lift.

A unique move that few other than Braymore can accomplish!
Just visit the Royal Conservatory to see that this is true!
