Finding a Piano for You
we assume by the fact that you've called, you want an old upright or small grand
in good-sounding, playable condition. Then we talk about the price
range you are looking for. (Generally the range is $800 to $1900 for
uprights that have not been completely reconditioned and
$2500-$3500 for those that have had everything done to them.
The cost of moving to any location within the towns
listed above is included in the price.) Outside of Franklin, Lamoille,
Chittenden, and Grand Isle counties there will be a slight surcharge
(not more than $50).
Then I let you know if I have any possibilities that you can look at
immediately. If not, I start looking and inspecting. When I have a
likely prospect, I call you with a firm estimate of what your cost
will be. If you are happy, then I start working on your piano.
Depending on initial condition, and my current workload, you could
expect to have your piano in anywhere from two weeks to two months.
If I have to look for pianos, that time is not so predictable. Could
be that in as little a week I find one. A month or two is more likely. Unfortunately, that's the part over which
I have no control. Also, consider that it may or may not have bench or stool. Even if it did, a lot of owners
will choose not to sell it with the piano. A basic old-fashioned piano stool costs about $170. An
artist bench about $335.
