Best Method of Payment: Cash, cheque, or direct bank transfer (internet or local bank) is all fine! Sorry, no eftpos.


1. Prices schedules will be followed as closely as is reasonably possible. However, prices may depend upon factors relevant to the piano’s condition. See note below concerning repairs. Every effort will be made to inform you of any factors which may impact upon prices.

2. Extent of repairs and regulation may entail further work and cost: eg 1 string replacement and re-gluing a broken key-top would come within the overall  

        charge. However, replacing six strings and gluing ten key-tops would be a different matter. If such repairs are needed, this will be discussed with you before 

        any work  commences.

3. Piano inspection price may be incorporated into any future work, such as tuning, repairs or regulating.

4. Some of these charges may be impacted by travel.
