Defining Your Values and Priorities

Early in the selling process, it helps to think about what is important to you.  The more you know about what you want the easier it is to decide how to go about selling your piano.

Ruling out the things you don't want is sometimes the easiest way save yourself time in decision making.  (It helps however to know what the options are before you start the narrowing down process.  You may overlook a particular option that would be perfect if you  had known that it was available.

If you feel you do not have enough information about the value of your piano and what the issues are when selling your piano from its current location, you may want to arrange for a Consultation with one of us.

Choosing How You Want to Sell

There are several ways to sell a piano.  Please select the option below that best describes your needs, and situation: 

___  I really don't have the time or desire to try and sell the piano myself from my home. Or- I am moving very soon and don't have enough time to sell the piano, and I need a place to store it and show it for sale.  Or-  I like to keep my privacy.  I do not want strangers coming to my home. I would like to find out what options are available for moving the piano out of my home to a showroom or other place of sale. (If you would like to contact a seller agent who can help you sell your piano or do the work of selling it for you, please fill out the Seller's Piano Listing Request Form

___I would like to sell my piano from my home. (If you want to list your piano for sale on our website, or are interested in receiving advice on how Piano Finders can best help you do this, please fill out the Seller's Piano Listing Request Form

___ I would like the help of an expert before placing my piano up for sale. But I'm not sure if I want a complete inspection and appraisal at this point. I would be interested in getting an estimate or range of what the piano might be worth.   (If you want to find out what your piano might be worth fill out the Ballpark Price and Piano Information Order Form

___ I want to make sure I'm not asking too much or too little for my piano. I don't want to list it for too high a price, so that it doesn't sell, but I also don't want to list it for too low a price so that I sell it for less than it's really worth. I want to make sure I am asking a fair price for the instrument. I also want to make sure I am representing its condition properly to prospective buyers. I would be interested in having a document verifying the condition and value of the piano.  (For an inspection and written verification of the piano's condition and value, by an experienced technician and market specialist, see Appraisals)
