Safely Moving a Piano with a Dampp-Chaser Piano Life Saver System

Posted by Sarah Czarnecki on

Pianos with Dampp-Chaser Piano Life Saver systems are protected from weather humidity swings, but need to be treated with care. If you need to move your piano, do not disturb the Damp-Chaser system. Rough handling could cause damage to the interior of your instrument.

Remember your Dampp-Chaser Piano Life Saver System has a tank and humidity system that contains water! Use caution even when shifting the piano for cleaning. If you plan to relocate or transport your piano, contact your piano technician to drain the system and prepare it for transport. The technician can re-install the system components and be sure it’s working properly after the move. Important: contact a Certified Dampp-Chaser Technician for this procedure or the system warranty will become void.

When you move a piano with a Dampp-Chaser system, be aware of the power cord. Pianos are very heavy, and if it rolls over the power cord it may damage the cord. A damaged cord could lead to a dangerous situation! There is a 5-amp fuse in the plug head. If it blows, it will stop power to the system. If the power cord is damaged, carefully unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet and contact a Certified Dampp-Chaser Technician. When in doubt, contact Dampp-Chaser Corp. at (828) 692-8271.

  • I guess you made a good point by stating that a technician should be employed to check on our piano to make sure it stays intact before and after a moving procedure. Speaking of, there’s a grand piano in my local library that needs to be relocated somewhere else. In my opinion, the person in charge could simply hire a moving company to facilitate the process.
