Sell Your Piano

PRIVATELY

If selling on one of the free online classified website, We urge an abundance of caution when inviting anyone in to your home.

If you’re thinking of selling your piano privately, and advertising it on sites like Craigslist or Kijiji, contact us to have your piano tuned and appraised. Tuning increases the “curb appeal” of the piano, and allows us to make an accurate assessment of the piano’s condition. Over 90% of pianos advertised for sale privately are out of tune and haven’t had a technician’s eyes on them for years. If your piano is reasonable condition, a recent tuning and assessment will increase buyer trust and help you fetch a much better price on the open market.

TO US

We are receiving several emails a day from people hoping to sell us their piano. We are doing our best to reply to everybody in a timely manner but it’s increasingly difficult to keep up. Please be patient – we will reply to you.

If you’d like to sell your piano to us, we’ll need some information to determine if we can purchase it. Unfortunately, we really can’t tell you what your piano might be worth or provide a ballpark figure without seeing the piano. Please have the following information ready when you contact us:

  1. Make & model of the piano
  2. Serial number (on Grands, located among the tuning pins just above the keyboard, on an upright, open the top flap and it will be in the same place)
  3. Maintenance history (when was the piano last tuned? has the piano had any repairs done?)
  4. When did you obtain the piano, and how? (Privately? From a dealer?)
  5. Has the piano been moved? If so, how many times, and when?
  6. How much are you asking for the piano?
  7. Are you looking to sell the piano immediately?

Photographs are also helpful – please send them to info@paulhahn.com with the above information.
