Thanks, Bob Taylor, for a good description of moving problems.
I would like to offer a solution.
It is equipment and handlers that are the link to problem moves.
I have shipped many pianos internationally and nationally; some
of these instruments were large orchestrations. In all cases
the instruments moved in crates were successful.
I can supply crates and instructions at a low cost and moving
sources to help any MMD subscriber who finds themselves in this
position of need.
