Skid Boards

 

5' and 5'9"' Skid board

The skid board is a staple for any mover who moves grand pianos. Over many years of moving grand pianos we found that the old wooden boards did not meet our true needs. We designed and built a board that made the job easier and safer without breaking and having to be replaced after a few months. First we put wheels on the board so you can roll the piano (or other load) to or away from a flight of stairs rather than wrestling the piano. Secondly we turn up the nose of the board so that it glides over steps and is not stopped by uneven staircases. We also build our board with steel frames, oak and nylon skids (replaceable), and handles that are steel (not stapled straps). These innovative features gives you a durable board that will not break and truly serve the need of the professional or amateur mover. Stock boards come in 5' (5 foot) and 6' (6 foot) lengths, available with or without e-track.
