The Jansen Grand Piano Dolly, also known as a Spider Dolly, is manufactured in the USA of 1/2″ thick steel, with wider and heavier steel parts than any other dolly (shipping weight of 118 lbs to 154 lbs.). Equipped with 5″ diameter, 2″ wide casters.
Known as a “spider dolly,” this is the safest option for moving your piano, especially over long distances, thick carpet or when using non-professional movers. The three brackets which connect the grand piano legs together, prevents any possibility of a leg getting caught and falling off while moving (something that could happen with just individual single leg dollies, damaging the piano and the individual). It is what is recommended for churches, schools, universities, home use etc. The piano can permanently stay on the spider dolly, allowing for frequent and easy movement long distances–making it great for concert halls and schools.
After ordering, please let us know the make, model and exact size of the piano you will be using the dolly with. Shipping likes to make sure the correct dolly was selected and no adjustments need to be made, before sending out the large boxes.
It is recommended dollies over 7’0” have 3 locking casters. For schools purchasing piano dollies, we also recommend you get the locking caster option.
