Why you should use a prominent piano dealer

Buying a piano is definitely a considered purchase. You have no doubt thought long and hard about the type of piano that you want and how far your budget will stretch. To save money, it can be tempting to trawl auction sites like eBay to see if you can pick up a bargain but would this really be a wise investment? 

Typical problems that you get when you buy a second-hand piano from an auction site are poor tuning, worn parts, old strings and potential misuse. You have no real idea on how the piano has been used, how often it has been tuned or the environmental factors of where it’s been kept. All of these things could cause problems later on and then you end up paying out considerable sums to get the piano repaired.

When you buy privately from eBay then you won’t get any warranty, you will more than likely have to deal with the transportation and delivery and there will be less choice on the type of cabinet and finish. You would also be wise to take a piano technician with you so that they can check that the piano is in good working order.
