There are many reasons you may want a written piano appraisal establishing the value of your piano. You may want a piano appraisal when securing a rider on your insurance policy, insuring the instrument for a move or before placing it in storage.
When selling your piano, a written piano appraisal will provide a solid basis for setting your price and negotiating with potential purchasers.
When a full-service piano appraisal is done, the piano will receive a complete inspection, the year of manufacture will be determined and the piano will be given at least a cursory, pitch-correction type of tuning. Some degree of tuning is an important aspect of appraising as it is one of the best methods for determining a number of points of information about the piano. For example, the potential of an instrument to hold tune, the condition of the strings, the tone of the instrument, and many other items.
Once the on-site work is done, you will either be mailed a printed piano appraisal or emailed an electronic version of your written appraisal sheet within 2 weeks of the date of the appraisal.
