Please email your photos to:
Please be sure to take some clear, detailed pictures of the inside of the piano as well the outside.
With grand pianos, open the lid, remove the music rack and take pictures of the tuning pins, serial number, strings and soundboard area. The more detail, the better.
With upright pianos, open the lid and take photos of the tuning pins, the serial number and hammers.
In your email, please be sure to tell us:
The city and state in which the piano is located.
How often and how recently the piano was tuned.
A realistic amount you are willing to accept for the piano.
We do not appraise pianos.
Please do not ask us to speculate on the value of your piano, or offer a "ballpark" guess at what it might be worth. No one can tell you what your piano is worth over the phone or by email and we would be doing you a disservice if we tried. With no fewer than 8,000 parts, and as many as 12,000 parts in some pianos, there are countless mechanical and structural things than can and do go wrong with pianos that can only be determined by an inspection performed by a professional piano technician. If you need your piano to be appraised, hire a Registered Piano Technician (RPT) with the Piano Technicians Guild to perform a thorough inspection of the piano. To find an RPT in your area, click here. The inspecting technician should be able to offer an educated estimate of the piano's value.
If you need a certified appraisal for legal purposes such as insurance claims, estate sales, divorce settlements, or tax deductions for charitable donations, we recommend using www.pianoappraisal.com, a certified online piano appraisal service. Using your inspecting piano technician's condition report, you can complete their online questionnaire about your piano. For a modest fee, they will create a appraisal certificate for your piano.
