Straight Flight of stairs
A straight flight of stairs, Not much else you can say about these. They shouldn't have any bends or curves in them.
Straight flight with a tight turn at the top or bottom
This is basically a straight staircase, only with a tight turn at the top or bottom. The turn/landing is normally about the same width as the stair case, meaning about 2-3 feet. This makes it harder for the movers as it gives them less space to move turn the piano off the stairs in due to the tight turn to the left or right. Knowing about these turn are important to movers because most pianos are about 5-6 feet long and 2 feet wide, about half the piano is still on the stairs when making this turn. The true is same for the bottom of the staircase.
 
Flight of stairs with a turn in it
This is a flight of stairs with one or more landings in it. For example, 4 steps than a landing, than another 5 steps, or 3 steps than a landing, another 6 steps than a landing, and then another 3 steps. These landings make moving a piano tricky, seeing the movers moving threw a landing of 2-3 feet by 2-3 feet with a piano that's 2 feet wide and 5-6 feet long.
 
Pie shaped stairs
These are about the same as stairs with a turn in it; main difference is that instead of a square landing, the landing is now 2-3 pie shaped stair cases. These shows to be the most difficult stairs to move through due to height restraint problems. Some of these stairs also have low ceilings at the bottom and not all pianos will fit threw that gap, and once you begin on these stairs, you really only have one chance.
 
Spiral Staircase
This is a staircase that isn't straight and curves all the way up or down. To most people, these staircases don't seem like a big deal due all its open space. That may be true, but to a mover, this staircase screams danger, accidents, and damage, making them automatically needs extra man power. What most people don't know is that because of the turn, the piano can't stand straight on the stairs, so it wants to lean in and fall on the wall. Try it some time with a piece of wood or plastic sometime and you'll see first hand what happens without a piano falling into your wall.
 
Staircase with a curve in it
This is in essence a spiral staircase that most people get confused with a straight staircase. The reason for that is because the staircase is half straight and half curved and they choose to only describe the easy part of the staircase. This style of staircase is also normally more difficult than a spiral staircase because the turn tends to much tighter.
