Piano Moving

Piano Moving

We specialize in piano moving. The owner of the company grew up around pianos, his father restores pianos. Our main piano crew chief, Mike, grew up in a family run piano moving business, but now we're lucky enough to have him working for us! Piano moving is in our blood.

Vinny and Robby were great. They were thorough and fast. They took apart my Ikea bed and reassembled it in no time. In 5 hours, they had one bedroom plus. Read the full review ›

Let us make your move even easier with our packing services. Our movers carefully package your goods using our years of expertise and ample supply of packing materials. Intelligent Labor and Moving focuses on your need to get back to normal life once your move has completed. We work with you to ensure we correctly label each box. We take care to help you categorize and pack your goods so they are easy to find, unbroken, and tidy. Our rates are the same as our rates for movng($130 for two workers, $190 for three workers, $55 per hour per worker over that).


Most of the year we charge $130 per hour for two excellent movers and a truck and $195 per hour for three excellent movers and a truck. Additional movers are $55 per hour per mover. This rate includes blankets, dollies, fuel, and equipment. We charge an increased rate in August and the beginning of September. See Rush rates here. We charge travel time from Arlington and back. We also charge for non-re-useable supplies such as stretch wrap, tape, cardboard boxes, and other packing materials. We pride ourselves on our simple rates and charges.


We offer vaulted storage at our storage facility in Arlington Massachusetts. Each wooden vault contains 245 cubic feet of goods and is 7.5 feet tall, 7 feet long and 5 feet wide. A vault typically holds about one room's worth of goods. Apartments usually take 2-4 vaults and single family homes 4-8. Once we have a list of your goods we can estimate how many vaults we'd need. Vaulted storage is the most convenient and secure method for storing your goods. Your furniture is blanket wrapped in your home, inventoried and then brought back to our warehouse and packed into vaults.
