What happens to old unwanted pianos?


Tuning your piano after a move… Will your piano require tuning after it has been moved? Even if a piano has been moved a very short distance, and done very carefully, it may require tuning. The important thing to consider is the change of environment that occurs when a piano is moved. Certainly, if the move is from one city to another or across town, the environment with its unique level of temperature and humidity ranges will affect the pianos tuning.

By the way, it is best to let a piano “settle” for approximatley 2 to 3 weeks in its new location before it is tuned, to allow it to climatize to it's new environment. We use and recommend you use a Piano Tuner from the Piano Tuners and Technicians Guild of Victoria. To find a qualified Piano Tuner in your area we recommend you visit, or
