Our Policy for the Purchase of Used Pianos
For each purchase, we need a technical diagnosis of your instrument: its state of health. How was it played, tuned and transported?
If you are a customer of our Home Agreement service, this diagnosis can be carried out free of charge at the next visit of our Tuner Technician.
If your instrument was purchased in one of our stores, we will have a history and its quality will have already been validated a first time, that's a good point!
A piano that has a major defect will not be the subject of any proposal on our part.
Each care given to your instrument guarantees a maintenance of value: respect for the furniture, regular agreement & transport by professionals.
We don't buy used digital pianos, the technology is evolving too fast for a resale value to exist.
The stages of resale or taking in consignment
TECHNICAL DIAGNOSIS At home, control of the essential points that can make the piano out of condition, aesthetic control and verification of the tuning fork (tuning and tuning). Evaluation of the work necessary for a fitness.
