Your Pipe Organ Project
Moving, Storage, and Relocation
A pipe organ can be moved from its original installation site and be relocated to a new space with great success. For some of our clients the move is internal; their pipe organs are an integral part of remodeling or new building plans. Sometimes instruments are fully or partially dismantled for protection during significant construction projects – an excellent time for them to be simultaneously renovated for a complete building makeover.
The Reuter Organ Company has years of experience with all phases of relocating and storing instruments. Whether simply sealing chests, removing pipes and boxing them for on-site storage during painting and redecorating, or completely repositioning an instrument with a new design layout, our representatives will ensure that each phase of a project will be planned and completed with care.
For some of our clients, an existing instrument is acquired and moved to a different location. Our Design and Engineering Teams can integrate vintage instruments into new spaces – often in another city and state. We can assist in brokering the purchase and removal of used pipe organs from virtually any site in the country. Giving new life to existing instruments is good stewardship and can represent considerable savings over the purchase of a new instrument for those with tight budgets.
