Abstract:

Transporting pianos is not an easy task, as they are as valuable and delicate as heavy and bulky.

This project aimed to develop an innovative concept that satisfies the needs of both piano owners and moving companies through an organized concept development process.

Finally, some recommendations for future development of the product were suggested.
