Should you tune your piano after it is moved?
The short answer is YES!
It may seem that just the simple act moving a piano is what would cause the instrument to go out of tune. This however is just part of the equation. When moved from one location to another even the slightest change in relative humidity will cause the pianos soundboard to swell and contract. This changes the tension of the strings and effectively puts the piano out of tune. After a delivery, the piano will proceed to “settle in” over the course of two weeks before the wood components in the piano become stable enough for a tuning.
