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.
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.

Customizing the dolly to your piano - required measurements:
The Jansen grand piano dolly is custom fitted to your piano, so we will need three pieces of information in order to make sure the correct dolly was selected, and that no adjustments need to be made (all of which can be entered in the text boxes in the drop down menu above).
1). Piano Make, Model and Size:
Please let us know the make, model and exact size of the piano you will be using the dolly with (for example, you may enter: Steinway Model M, 5'7"). When measuring the piano, you want the longest possible measurement, including the piano keys--so you measure from the very front of the keyboard to the tail end of the piano. If you cannot find the model of your piano, the brand and the size will work.
2). Piano Leg Dimensions:
Please provide the dimensions of the bottom of your piano leg (for example, if it were a square leg, it might be 3" x 3"). This measurement is needed to make sure your legs will fit in the standard cup sizes on the dolly.
3). Piano Wheel Height:
Please provide the height of the wheels (casters). Measure from the floor to the bottom of the piano leg (the dolly will be adjusted based on this height, so that it does not raise your piano more than normal). Note that this measurement will be a few inches--it is not the height of the entire piano leg.
Piano Brand Size Exceptions:
Because of the way the legs are situated on the 6' & 6'1" Yamaha, Young Chang, Kawai & Samick grand pianos, please order the #J-6542 Small Dolly for pianos 4'8 to 5'11".
If you are not sure which dolly to get, please feel free to email us, including the size and brand of your piano.
