It may be an expensive way to move a piano, but it will certainly save you from a bad back.
A large black instrument was spotted dangling from a crane outside a Docklands apartment in east London because it was too large to fit up the stairs of the building.
Workmen were seen guiding the behemoth down on to the balcony of the flat it was being loaded into while what appeared to be fellow residents enjoyed the sight from the rooftops, taking videos for good measure.
This huge crane was spotted hoisting a piano high above buildings in Docklands, east London, pictured, for delivery to a flat.
Workmen can be seen on the balcony of the apartment helping to guide the instrument down while others take videos of the strange sight.
But the practice is actually quite common with several piano moving firms offering the use of everything from mini-cranes to 150-tonne machines depending on the size and weight of the instrument.
There are several factors movers have to consider when using a crane, including how close a vehicle can get to the delivery building, whether a piano has ton be lifted over a roof and whether there are any trees, cables or other obstacles in the way.
Firms are legally required to complete a pre-approved lifting plan and all jobs have to pass health and safety inspections.
Most firms also specialise in window removal in case the building does not have a balcony, with crews of workers on hand to fix everything after the delivery is complete.
