by Barbara Safani - Dec, 2009
I’m having a piano delivered to my house. Arranging for a piano delivery is no small feat. Besides making arrangements with the showroom, I had to coordinate the insurance with my apartment building’s managing agent and figure out if the piano would fit in my elevator.
