An appraisal is an assessment of the piano’s current value. Appraisals must be done on-site, in person, and cannot be done over the phone or by sending pictures or descriptions of your piano. Only a visual and physical inspection can determine the piano’s actual condition. Structural issues, effects of environmental changes, neglect, and pest and insect damage will not show up in pictures.
For valuable information about your piano, including its current condition, how to sell it, suggested asking prices, etc., call or fill out our online form to Schedule an Appraisal.
Appraisal amounts will vary depending on the intended application.
- Re-sale value
- Donation value
- Insurance purposes – to ensure the piano is adequately protected by the homeowners insurance policy
- Our own offer to purchase the piano
If you have a piano that you are interested in selling to Kramer’s Piano Shop, please fill out the Selling Your Piano form, and we will contact you shortly.
If Kramer’s Piano Shop purchases the piano, the appraisal fee is waived.
