To ensure that your piano is covered by our warranty it must be serviced by a representative of Shackleford Pianos. Along with this, please follow our tips on how to take care of your piano:

Even if your piano is not used it will go out of tune. YOU MUST Make sure you have your piano tuned every six months by a Shackleford Pianos representative Piano Tuner.
