Our History

Established in Oakland, California in 1964, by Harry McCrea, McCrea's Piano Moving is a five star Yelp rated, full service piano moving and storage company, still owned and operated by the McCrea family. 

The fantastic and diverse Bay Area Terrain and varied style of housing has allowed our company a wide range of expertise in piano moving, whether it be an old upright, a cherished spinet or an heirloom concert grand piano. 


Our Methods

Our system of piano moving is based on traditional methods, using fulcrum points, balance, strength and above all, excellent communication. We handle each piano with the care, using angle, leverage and balance to finesse each instrument into the right places. 

As well as moving, we are a full service moving and storing company. Our warehouse, located in Oakland, is a clean, well-lit facility that offers high quality storage. All pianos are fully insured.

Although we are a small, local, moving company we can arrange shipping anywhere in the world. We also offer referrals to some of the most well-respected tuners, technicians and piano refinishers in the business.
