Pianos can be restored in sections to avoid a huge bill.
Keys...... action........ strings.......... casework. For one or two the piano need not be moved.
How Much Does It Cost?
It depends on the piano and what is wrong with it. New quality key covers cost c. £400 Re-stringing with new strings, felts, etc c. £3,200 Action: From c.£300 - £3,000 Casework: For a good wipe over with french polish including sorting out the worst "dings" £1,000. More for full jobs and polyestering. Moving costs are extra. There is NO VAT.
Do You Give Condition Reports / Estimates?
Preparing a full condition report and estimate takes about eight hours plus travelling to and from the pianos home. I offer this service free for regular customers but elsewhere in the UK I charge £250 + 50p a mile over 80 miles. This is refundable if the work is carried out.
Is Your Work Guaranteed?
All work is guaranteed for 12 months including parts and labour.
How Long Will The Piano Be Away?
Due to the artistic nature of the work pianos will need to be away for 4-6 months, depending on what work needs doing. I can hire you a piano while the work is being done.
