Shipping and delivery types and definitions

When shipping or delivery is specified in a piano listing, the following definitions apply:

First come, first served—All pianos in our online inventory are available on a "first come, first served" basis until we receive a deposit on it.  Customers who have an interest in one of our pianos are strongly urged to place a refundable deposit on it to ensure right of first refusal and finalize payment and delivery details.  Pianos may be placed under deposit by choosing the "Hold this piano for me" link on any piano listing or by calling us at 800-264-6614.

About the piano buying process.

Buying and shipping a piano is a highly personal and multifaceted process; as such many aspects of the piano buying and delivery process fall outside the reasonable scope of an ecommerce site's ability to relay information and assess costs.  Therefore we strongly encourage customers to contact us in person, by phone at 860-442-9600, or by email at info@carusopianos.com before you make a purchase.

By purchasing a piano on our site (whether or not you contact us in advance), you acknowledge that additional charges not specified on our site may apply (delivery and otherwise) for us to make a safe and successful delivery to your location.  You will have the option of accepting or declining the full delivered price of any piano purchase at no obligation before a sale is finalized.

Order fulfillment.

Because piano purchasing and delivery is not a "one size fits all" process, we reserve the right to cancel or decline to fulfill any online order at our exclusive discretion for any reason. Most commonly this will occur when we feel that we are unable to accomplish a successful delivery at a cost that will be acceptable to you. You will not be responsible for any charges incurred from an order cancelled by us and your credit card (if provided) will not be charged.

About piano delivery.

Unless otherwise noted in a particular piano's listing, delivery is an additional charge which varies according to your location. Piano delivery quotes are generally given on a case-by-case basis. Contact us for a customized quote for your specific circumstances.

Accepted payment methods.

We accept cash, check, and bank wire transfer for all piano purchases. Financing is available for all pianos on approved credit.

Credit cards are accepted on a limited basis at our exclusive discretion and are subject to geographical and dollar-amount limitations. At our discretion, we may or may not accept up to 100% of the purchase price of a piano listed on our site. In cases where we cannot accept a credit card for 100% of the purchase price, we will charge a refundable deposit on your credit card with the balance due by cash, check, wire transfer, or financing.
