Repairing Broken or Damaged Piano Castors

For Schools

Schools have a duty of care and safety castors or brackets with castors must be fitted to all pianos that are not fixed to the wall - we are approved by Blackburn with Darwen, Lancashire County Council, Bolton Education Authority and Sefton Council. We have fitted safety castors in schools in all the above LEAs.

We have supplied castors to schools, collegs, universities, cubs, theatres and NHS trust for them to fit, who are outside our fitting area. Including areas below: for many LEAs we are the approved suppler and are on their BACS system for payment:

If you are unsure what type of castors to fit to your piano, you can contact us by phone or email. A photo of the side of the piano is the best way, we will need the full view of the side of the piano. If you wish to buy piano castors online please go here

We supply and fit adjustable safety brackets with castors designed to suit any depth of small modern upright piano. High-load twin-wheel castors ensure safety and ease of movement. They come in light weight or heavy weight.

Light weight adjustable safety brackets are not suitable for large pianos like the Yamaha U3. for those we recommend extended back post brackets and twin wheel castors. By increasing the wheel base, these rear toes greatly reduce the danger of tipping an upright piano over, particularly important when unskilled labour is used to move pianos in school halls and classrooms.

We also supply and fit spare rubber tyres on the wheels of old piano castors in schools. if you wish to buy spare rubber tyres for your piano castors for you to fit, please go here spare rubber piano tyres

We also supply and fit grand A frames with castors for ease of movement in school halls.

For the Home

We supply and fit steel or brass castors or brass effect castors, which look good on wooden floors; also double and single rubber wheel castors for wooded floors if you move your piano a lot. We can also fit light weight adjustable safety castors as used in schools but with decorative covers.

We can supply castor cups for both grands and uprights in different wood finishes and clear glass.
