I think of pianos as people and treat them very considerately.  I would not push a person over as that could cause injury and I am sure that pushing a vertical piano over would be a horrible experience for the instrument. A few years ago, a Bösendorfer concert grand piano accidentally fell over the side of a stage here in Auckland and the piano was completely ruined as  the plate and the wooden rim were broken.
Another piano horror story that I know of was when friends in Avignon, France lost a lovely Bechstein upright in the floods there in December last year.  The piano was raised on blocks and stones in the house in a desperate attempt to save it but the swirling flood  toppled it into the water which was 1m 40 deep in the house.  Quelle horreur!

Kind regards,
Robert.

OMG A BOSENDORFER GOT RUINED????!!!! I'm So Sad!  :'( :'( :'( :'(

NOW THAT'S QUELLE HORREUR,
I would mourn for well...a VERY LONG time.. and give it a proper funeral..not to cremate it, probably bury it.
I wonder if they make coffins for pianos, and how much it'd weigh, probably take a crane to lift the thing into the crypt.  Like 3000 lbs with the coffin?
