Although many sellers choose to operate on a consignment basis with their pianos, we are sometimes able to purchase pianos outright from sellers. Pianos are assessed for potential purchase on a case-by-case basis; if you'd like to know if we'd be able to purchase your piano, please feel free to call or email us.
Yes, in fact most sellers choose to use our services to sell their pianos on consignment.
Sadly, no. Apart from a few exceptions, most older upright pianos we encounter have met or exceeded their intended lifespan and do not retain much value in the open market. Older traditional (roll-style) player pianos are also difficult to sell in today's market because of their intensive maintenance requirements.
This is not our specialty. The value estimates that we can provide you assume that the piano will be listed for sale in the current market, and may not be suitable for purposes of insurance or tax deduction.
