Sell a Piano

When you contact us for help to sell your piano most estimates can be given within the initial phone call. However, if your piano is an antique piano, ornate or rare then to offer you an accurate value we would ask for a selection of 15 pictures that cover the casing and the mechanics of the instrument to aid us in determining its value. These can be sent by post or email.

The best way to sell your piano is with Britannia Piano Auctions in order to obtain the best value of your instrument today. We will forward you a clear and simple form to complete and return to us. This form will include a break down of the Auction House fees.

After the sale of your piano, we promise that your sale figure will be paid to you within three working weeks
