Piano Auctions

Selling at Auction

Telephone us on 0044 (0) 1234 831742 with details of your piano and our consultant will be able to tell you more about your instrument and its potential auction value.

In most cases we can give a sales estimate on the telephone but, occasionally, we will need to see a photograph especially if your piano is more decorative.

This service is provided free of charge.

If you wish to proceed we will send you a 'Sale Contract Form'. We can also arrange transport through a specialist carrier. All our charges are clearly explained before entering your piano for sale and after your piano has been sold you would normally expect to receive a final settlement within 21 days.
