Now that I've been here a while, I'm thinking about shipping my piano over from Texas. It's an upright, 48" tall.
I've done some searching on here and haven't found a good answer to these two questions - if anyone can recommend:
1) A shipper who can get it here in one piece? Understanding I'll have to figure out how to get it to port and all. It would be nice if I could ship from Galveston instead of Miami, but may not be possible. If I found a shipper who could handle the entire transaction from Texas door-to-St. Croix door, even better.
2) Does anyone have advice for keeping a piano on STX with the humidity? I'm sure I'll have to have it tuned more often - any recommendations for tuners on island (if there is one)? I've read about people replacing the hammers with special ones - any advice?
I really love this piano and want to have it here, but if the logistics are too much of a challenge/expense then I'll have to sell it and buy one on island. 🙁 But I'm really hoping I can bring mine.
