IF YOU ARE PURCHASING
A USED PIANO
. . . please consider hiring me to assess the piano before you bring it into your home. There are many factors to consider regarding the functionality of a piano and I have seen many that are still being exchanged or sold that are no longer viable instruments. A small investment will save you a great deal of trouble and inconvenience. The service fee for my assessment is applicable to the first service call on any piano you eventually purchase.
Why do I do this? Because I want you to have the best instrument possible. The purchase of a piano is like putting a car into your living room. Before you purchase a car, you make sure that it is mechanically sound and in good working order. The same care should be put into acquiring a piano.
