We get many calls from people looking to sell us pianos that we are not interested in. We only have a very narrow range of what we are looking for. If you want to sell your piano, we recommend selling it on the Net. Some suggestions on where to post: Craigslist’s musical instrument section, FB Marketplace, EBay, PianoMart. There is also a site for free pianos called Piano Adoption.
Good pics will help you sell your piano. Make sure to take all the picture frames and belongings off of the piano so the entire case is visible, and take pics that show the whole entire case- including the top, keyboard, legs, etc. If you want to polish it: we recommend Old English for wood grains, with a soft & fluffy, clean car-washing type cloth. You can get these cloths at a hardware store. Same soft and fluffy style cloth for high gloss finish, but spray Windex glass cleaner or something similar onto the cloth. Don’t put cleaning liquids directly onto the piano. Put it onto the cloth and then wipe the piano, in the direction of the grain. Buff it out and look for streaks. Remember: good pics will help to sell your piano.
If you want to know how much to sell it for: Look up the same year of manufacture, make and model on the Net, and see how much other people are selling similar pianos for. Also consider the condition of similar pianos compared to yours, as well as the geographical location. That will give you some idea of the going rate. Also check out the website “The Blue Book of Pianos,” which is a good resource. Please note, we cannot give appraisals over the phone. We charge a fee for appraisals, which are done in person. Our in-home appraisal can include written documentation for insurance purposes as needed.
As far as what we are looking for, we are *only* interested in buying Yamaha pianos (acoustic only, 1980’s or newer,) and Steinway pianos (any era, original condition,) at this time. We are not considering any other brands. We’re also not interested in free pianos, spinets, players, ex-players, old parts, accordions, organs, digital keyboards, etc. If your piano is not something we want, the advice above will help you sell it on the Net.
If you want to get your piano tuned or fixed before people come to buy it, or if you want professional piano movers, we can help you with those aspects. We also provide piano storage and piano disposals. Call 845-298-8872
