I offer evaluations and/or appraisals for any piano in the area.
Evaluations – I inspect the entire piano (frame; sound board and ribs; pedals; strings; tuning pins and pin block including tightness test; action; keys; case) and offer explain the condition of the piano and an opinion regarding purchase, sale, donation, etc.
Appraisals – I do the thorough evaluation as listed above; but I also take photos. I then research the piano – age, manufacture, etc. I do an nationwide online search as to what similar pianos and selling for; and I consider standard depreciation. Based on this, I determine a Fair Market Value for the instrument. I also supply a cost, if the instrument were to be replaced with a new piano of similar size and quality. This is all supplied in written form. See a Sample Appraisal Here .
