Online Piano Appraisal Service -
"What's My Piano Currently Worth?"

What Is the Online Piano Appraisal Service?

The Online Appraisal Service is intended as a piano price point for those who are thinking of selling their piano, or who are searching for a used piano.

The Online Piano Appraisal Service can help you to determine the current market value range of your piano - if you are looking to buy or sell one, or just need a rough estimate of how much your piano is worth.

This evaluation can serve as a reasonable starting point to began at.

An evaluation can be delivered in as little as 24 hours, or in five (5) days, depending on the delivery option you choose.


"Why's a Written Piano Appraisal Necessary?"

At times you may need a written appraisal to prove the value of your piano under certain conditions. A piano appraisal can prevent you from selling your piano for too little or paying too much for a new piano.

Written Piano Appraisals are needed for such purposes as:

BUYING
SELLING
TRADING
INSURANCE
REBUILDING
REFINISHING
ESTATE TAX
TAX DEDUCTIONS
COMMUNITY PROPERTY
DONATIONS*
EQUAL DISTRIBUTION
DAMAGE CLAIMS

..

*Tax donations require a separate, on-site evaluation (see below).

Many different factors influence a piano's value, including the following:

1) Manufacturer 2) Age 3) Interior & Exterior Components' Condition.

4) Condition of piano's case, finish, and keys.  5) Geographic location.

6) Rarity, scarcity, and/or furniture value.  7) Depreciation factors.

8) Eagerness of potential buyer (or seller)  9) Local or National Economy


Who Should Use This Service?

Anyone who needs a quick, reliable, and inexpensive guide to a piano valuation:

- Sellers: You are thinking of selling your piano. You need an idea of the piano's value in order to determine a starting point selling price.

- Buyers: You are searching for a used piano. You need to know if a piano in particular is priced reasonably.

- Owners: You are curious to know the fair market value of your piano. But you don't want a comprehensive appraisal performed by a piano technician just yet.

Please Note: The Online Appraisal Service is based entirely online, and is a general evaluation of your piano. It is meant to serve as a starting point of reference, only. It is not intended to replace an on-site piano inspection, which is separate and different from the online appraisal service.




This service is intended for acoustic piano and player piano appraisals, only.

Keyboard and organ appraisals are offered as a separate service, for a fee of $40, delivered within 5-7 business days. This includes any electric, electronic, and digital keyboards; digital pianos; analog keyboards; synthesizers and samplers; and vintage keyboards.


Celebrity Owned Piano Appraisals  understandably require more in-depth and extensive research, than a standard piano evaluation. This specialized research includes: the piano's Celebrity and/or Historical Value, Fair Market Value, and Art Case Value (if applicable).

If you are on a limited budget, we will appraise based only upon what we can discover in the time allotted, which may result in a lower price returned. When we are able to determine and document the piano's value, with more thorough and extensive research, to justify its starting market asking price, $350 is the standard price for a fully researched appraisal, delivered within 7-10 business days.

The main purpose of OPAS is to serve as a general guide of reference, only. This in addition to helping on-site appraisers to make more informed and accurate decisions, based on their own subjective observations, knowledge, and opinion.
