A common question asked by most of our customers is; How much will my piano cost to repair or restore?
To begin with, these are very difficult questions to answer without physically seeing the piano. Pianos are like any piece of machinary with moving parts, the problems can range from very minor to major. Just think, what response would you get from your mechanic if you asked; how much will it cost to repair my car...
What we can advise is that piano repairs and restorations generally fall into 3 or 4 categories, prices that can reasonably be expected within these 3 or 4 categories are as listed below:
General Service, making sure all keys work and the piano is tuned: $150 - $300
Major Service, replacing broken or missing parts, fine tuning the piano: $300 - $600
Restoration (Interior only, no cabinet work): $600 - $1500
Restoration (Interior as well as exterior): $1500 - $3500
*Grand pianos can be significantly more to repair or restore depending on their size.
