APPRAISALS & PRE-PURCHASE INSPECTIONS
Pianos are complicated machines that require thorough evaluation by a professional technician to accurately assess their condition. If you are new to buying or selling pianos, the process can be confusing and time-consuming because there are so many choices and endlessly conflicting information about those choices. As a technician and pianist, I can make your decision much more straightforward.
Technical inspection & verbal report- $120
This service includes a thorough 50+ point inspection of a piano's structural and mechanical components. Upon completion of the inspection, a verbal summary of the piano's condition and estimated financial value will be provided. If the piano is to be tuned, a condensed verbal condition report will be provided free of charge, by request.
Technical Inspection & written report- $170
For clients who need a more formal assessment, a written report, including relevant photos can be provided. The final report is typically provided within one week from the date of inspection. You can see an example of a written assessment here.
