Selling or donating your old piano


Organizing a piano sale for an old piano can be a bit of a challenge. For quite a while now, the value of pianos at all price levels have all but plummeted. Used pianos for sale are may more than the people looking to buy them, essentially meaning that buyers are able to get the best deals whenever they want to get a piano.


Several conditions have made it difficult to get a proper profit on a piano sale. Some of these factors are inherent to the used piano sales, whole others are just due to recent conditions. In general, some of them include:





  • 1. The increased level of globalization and computerization of manufacturing processes. Essentially, these two have made it easy to get new, cheap consumer-grade products from places like Indonesia and China. Why struggle to attend a piano sale somewhere else, when you could just order a piano from China?





  • 2. Digital pianos have also become the industry standard. They’ve become better in touch and tone, and thanks to the increase in the number of producers, prices have also falls significantly. So, for people on a limited budget, it might be better to just get a digital piano as opposed to purchasing an acoustic one





  • 3. A lot of old people are now selling pianos that they no longer need. The increase in supply over demand has led to a significant price drop





  • 4. The growth of the Internet- especially, websites such as Amazon, eBay, and Craigslist- has made it easy to purchase a used piano





  • 5. A lot of people who organize piano sales are looking to move. This time pressure essentially makes them comfortable with selling for really low prices



  • There’s also the fact that if you have a limited budget, you might not be ready to move a piano to another location- especially now that there are quite a few costs that you need to pay to ensure that the piano is delivered in proper condition.


    Regardless, a typical buyer cost will include:





  • 1. Moving an upright piano will cost between $200 and $500. If you’re moving a grand piano, the you’re looking at paying up to $550 or $600. Costs could also increase due to shipping, if you’re moving the piano over a great distance or if the destination will be a tad challenging.





  • 2. You could also end up paying between $200 and $300 to tune and pitch-raise a piano. Most pianos that are on sale will need a pitch raise, especially if they’ve not been used for years.





  • 3. Repairs on pianos can cost between $200 and $400. Most pianos over 10 years will need this service done if they’re to sound good.
