We Ensure Your Used or Pre-Owned Piano Choice Stays Within Your Budget
When you are assisting an aspiring pianist to discover their musical talents for the first time, a used piano can be a cost-effective way to start. It will help them develop skills, learn to appreciate music, and develop creative and critical thinking that goes beyond music - all with only a modest investment.
A critical point in the offering of used pianos for sale is our selection process. We personally examine and evaluate every aspect of each used piano: mechanical and musical condition, repairs needed, cosmetics and original manufacturers' quality, or lack thereof. We weigh all these aspects to ascertain our final, fair-market selling price. More than half the pianos coming to us as trade-ins are not offered for resale, as many are simply beyond repair and should be retired. A very high percentage of the used pianos offered for sale to us are rejected, and those pianos remain on the market. Once we have selected a used piano to be prepared for resale, the preparation process is very thorough: Cleaning inside and out, necessary parts and repairs, action lubrication and regulation, tuning up to A440, and cabinet face-lift.
When you see the used pianos offered in our stores or on niceusedpianos.com, you can have confidence in knowing those pianos that we have rejected are NOT among them
