Our SCHAFF sturdy Grand Piano Dollies are made in the USA and are an essential accessory for moving your Grand Piano from room to room on solid surfaces or carpeting with ease and safety.  Perfect for Schools, Theaters, Churches or anywhere you need to move a grand piano more than a few inches.  Grand Pianos should never be moved any distance on their own legs. It will cause the bolts to strip and eventually break the legs. Easy assembly.

4012- Small
For Grand Pianos 4'8" to 5'11" - 3" square sockets.

Size Exceptions:
Because of the way the legs are situated on the following pianos, please see these Size Exceptions.  For 6' & 6'1" Yamaha, Young Chang, Kawai & Samick grands, you can order this #4012 Small Dolly. 

Our dollies come in a powder coat black baked on finish & are equipped with three 5" diameter, swivel casters with black polyurethane "Hi-Tech" wheels.
They're made of solid 1/2" thick U.S. steel and have brakes on all three of the wheels to prevent the piano from shifting position when in use.

The steel telescoping arms are easily adjusted to the angle of the piano legs, at the center of the dolly. At the end of each leg is a 3-1/2" square swivel socket to hold the piano legs.
The piano is raised only 2-1/2" from the floor, no higher than regular casters, so there is no interference with the pedals when playing.

There are many piano makes and models that will require a different size dolly or will require a modified dolly. In order to properly ensure you are going to receive the correct dolly for your piano we will require all information listed when ordering. Measure your piano from the very front of the keyboard to the tail end.  (Sometimes it's easier to measure underneath the piano.)

You can email this information to our technical department along with your make, model and size of piano.  The A, B and  C measurements from the diagram below are also required. Measure from the center of each leg to the next.


It is imperative that you supply these measurements. 

Please feel free to call us (1-800-791-7144) or email tech support for assistance with ordering the correct dolly for your piano. https://www.vandaking.com/contact.html     

Shim kits may be required on pianos originally equipped with larger 3" - 5" diameter casters. ($55.00 extra special order - please call us at (1-800-791-7144) To determine how many, if any, kits are required. Please measure the distance from the bottom of the piano leg to the floor.  A set of three  black steel shims  3-3/4”   X   4-1/2”     X    ½” (thickness). The kit comes with the appropriate length bolts for installation.

a solid investment 06/17/2017
By William F. Wieting
The Schaff piano dolly from V King Piano Showcase is a great deal: the price was the lowest anywhere. Shipping was efficient and prompt. The dolly itself is marvelous: strong, easily assembled, made of fine, substantial materials, including big ball-bearing locking casters, polished steel bolts, and a handsome black semi-gloss finish. It's great, vital protection for any piano that's often moved.

Perfect for my Yamaha GC1 04/08/2024
By Sean Conway
The dolly was dispatched to Canada quickly after my order was placed and arrived safely in 3 manageable boxes. The dolly is very sturdy and with careful planning was able to be installed under the piano safely and relatively easily by two people. The dolly allows me to move my piano over hardwood floors with ease and no damage to the floors. Use blocks under the ends of the arms when installing.

Grand Piano Truck 04/26/2016
By Steve Lawton
exactly what we expected. Heavy. Three boxes. instructions completely pictorial. on Yamaha, to remove caster, jack up piano, insert a prop, remove leg, remove caster cup screws, replace leg. To place it on the truck, put a 2x4 block under each cup so that the frame does not fly up when you put the weight of the piano on it. know what you are doing/ 90 minutes by yourself; or call a pro!

Grand Piano Dolly 05/01/2018
Good experience dealing with Vandaking/Kelly. Web page info, ordering/payment online went smoothly. Service provided on phone excellent. Referred to another manufactor's "you tube" to find out how to place the piano up on the dolly. Your assembly sheet OK, but your info to put the piano on the dolly not helpful at all. Kelly told me about the blocks. You didn't. Needs to be revised.

Perfect for my needs! 06/17/2013
By Donald Bowsher
I ordered this piano dolly for our 5 foot baby grand so that we could move it easily from one part of the house to the other. It was simple to put together, and it performs the job extremely well! Our piano movers actually put our piano onto the dolly, so I can't speak to how easy/difficult that might be, but I'm thrilled with the purchase and how easy it is to relocate the piano.
