Hello all you piano lovers!
Its been a few days since I have posted on here but in that time we have sold 3 beautiful used grand pianos in Arizona. Although I was sick all weekend, I was able to buff out and deep clean the used grand pianos in the last shipment. Luckily we have found a new tuner who is helping me keep up with the recent up tick in business so he came in for a couple days and tuned them all. I will eventually post a picture and a little biography on him so keep an eye out for that.
Today was a piano moving day so I am pretty tired as I right this. Justin(mover) and I moved two grands today and went “piano shopping” in Arizona for a used upright piano for Jill Roberts (piano artist) to repaint. After driving around all day and seeing 3 different used upright pianos, we came home empty handed.
Driving around today shopping for used pianos made me think about how hard it must be for people not in the used piano industry to know what is a “good deal” and what is just junk. I am lucky enough to have a lot of experience buying used pianos in arizona and California but most people are not as lucky. That is why my next post will be entitled “How to buy a good used piano on craigslist”. I cant even tell you how many calls I get from people with $500 budgets trying to find a good deal on a used piano for their kids. While pianos in this price range may not look pretty, there are some decent used pianos out there if you are willing to sacrifice looks and do a lot of driving around.
Before I get ahead of myself and spill all my beans, I am going to say goodby for now. I am too tired and if I keep writing, I probably wont make any sense!
Thanks for reading and as always, please feel free to contact me anytime if you have any piano related questions!
