About Allston Piano Moving Company

I moved a few months ago to MA and I am so happy I got a piano and allston was such a wonderful company and everything was moved and safe my husband and i are very happy.
- april collin

Allston moved an extremely awkward & heavy console player piano out of my home this morning along with about 300 scrolls. They were prompt, friendly, efficient and very careful. I would have no reservations about using them again. I have a new baby grand coming in a few months and they’ll be moving that as well.
- Bryan Lynch

Allston Piano was great from start to finish and took great care of my 1923 Steinway M in the move from one house to another. They also stored the piano for a week in between. I highly recommend them.
- Alan Seale

Efficient and very polite and helpful. 5 stars!
- Tiffany Minors

These guys are fantastic. Really made this an easy process and the homeowner where the piano was picked up was ecstatic as well. Fair price and high level of detail in their operation. Very pleased, thank you!
- Daniel Koehler

A pleasure to work with, from scheduling to delivery day. Very professional and efficient.
- Rob Opdycke

Excellent to deal with at each step of the move: responsive, supportive, flexible, on-time[!], easy-going and kind!
- Judith Gordon

I have used them two times for Piano moves. They are fantastic!
- Raajdeep Venkatesan

Piano moving is expensive but the price quoted was fair compared to others. It was very easy to schedule pick up and delivery. The process was efficient. I got an email reminder the day before with a time frame, and an update on the day regarding actual time. The movers placed the piano exactly where I wanted it. Would recommend.
- Russell & Nirupa

Very professional and careful. These guys could thread a needle with a piano, which is basically what they did with our narrow staircase.
- Rancor Tooth

My piano is sentimental to me where my mom bought it 2nd hand in 1969. We had in our home for 38 years and were moving it from a 2nd floor to be refinished in Quincy. They came and figured it would go the same window it came in in 1981. All things were measured and the window removed to get it out and onto the truck by crane. They carefully covered it and were very professional. I am sure when the piano is redone I will be calling them again to bring the piano back but it will be able to get into the front door when that time comes. Highly recommended! I am sure my mom would be happy we have kept the piano with us!
- Linda Ryan

They fit us into their schedule on extremely short notice (24-hours!!) and saved my bacon when we had to move the piano. Extremely easy to work with, professional and friendly. Will definitely use them again.
- Lori Kingston

- Jerod Thomas

Very good services.

Allston Piano movers did a wonderful job moving all 16 of our pianos to our new location.
- Sachiko Isihara

I whole heartedly recommend this company. Their three-member crew under the direction of Andrew Kuhn worked perfectly in moving our piano and a chest from Attleboro to Burlington last week. They were all professionals-- punctual, courteous to a fault, and meticulous in handling everything. They made sure that the items were removed with great care and were later put exactly where they were meant to be placed on different floors. Our son-in-law was on the receiving end and he was also highly pleased with them.There wasn't the slightest damage to the items or to the two houses involved. I have nothing but praise for them. And I should add that their charges were also quite reasonable. All the best to their enterprise.( I said pretty much the same things on the Facebook site of their parent company, Gentle Giant).
- V. Siddhartha

My piano was carefully and skillfully moved to my new home. It is as beautiful an instrument now as it was before the move. I was impressed with the movers.
- Jane Weingarten

Niles and his crew moved a old heavy upright piano here in Dartmouth, one from house to another. Every aspect of this move was done professionally from the initial arrangements, followups and then the move itself. The crew were considerate, helpful, knew what they were doing and, it goes without saying, strong! Would strongly recommend them to anyone moving a piano and plan to use them again when I decide to move my baby grand.
- Peter Sturges

I had my Yamaha upright moved by Allston Piano for a in-town move. Booking was simple and they responded quickly to my inquiry. They were flexible in accommodating my schedule, which was important because I had a very narrow window for the move. The three-men crew showed up right on time (6:30 AM on a Friday). They really knew their job - careful and efficient. The whole move took less than an hour, and my piano sat in the new house exactly where I wanted. Very pleased.
- Masahiro Morii

Amazing job moving my Mason AA through a porch and up a tricky staircase... Highly recommend!
- Tina Pelhe

The Allston Piano team made a heavy lift look like ballet.
- Boston Art Club

We had a somewhat unique move of an upright piano that we were donating to a local charity. Allston Piano could not have been nicer about accommodating time and location and, since it was a donation, the cost. We could not have been happier.
- Dan Winsor

They took great care in moving my antique piano from NH to Cambridge. Pleasure to deal with and they arrived right on time.
- Joanna Clarke-Pounder

These guys are supposed to be the best piano movers in Boston, so I had every confidence in trusting them with my beloved Steinway M during a move in August of 2017. Unfortunately, my fellow reviewers seem to have had better success. While moving my piano up a single flight of stairs, they put a massive crack along the length of the fallboard. Also, my piano was scratched during the move. As a professional pianist, this was deeply upsetting to me. Allston did cover the cost of all repairs necessitated as a result of their negligence. This is the only reason I'm giving them 2 stars. The fallboard had to be rebuilt, as the current Steinway M uses a slightly different fallboard design. Thankfully, there are now no signs of the damage. They also covered the cost of refinishing to remove scratches sustained during the move. I didn't want to write a review at first because I wanted to make sure that the cost of repairs was covered completely. But now, I feel it necessary to warn my fellow pianists. Allston might be fine moving an old spinet, but I would never trust them with my piano again.
- Luke Flood

These guys were on time, friendly, professional, smart, and strong. A very difficult job was easy for them. Booking was a breeze as well.
