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 realistic, real-world, fair market value selling price.

- Buyers: You are searching for a used piano. You need to know if a piano 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. You are also looking for the current, 100% insurance replacement value to report to your insurance company to fully insure your piano against any damages, or a declared complete loss.

See the videos below, to learn more about the internal components of your piano.  

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 Minimum Insurance Replacement Value.

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.
