*Please keep in mind that we do not buy grands or full uprights older than 45 years old. There are exceptions for this for brands like Steinway and Mason & Hamlin. Also we NEVER buy any used digital pianos.
However, there is a downside. Despite the number of eyeballs viewing your listing, online sales in the private market can take longer than selling to a local piano store, depending on the quality of your used piano.
The pros and cons are exactly reversed when selling your piano to a local piano store. The piano store wants to make a profit on the future sale of your used piano. So you might make less from a sale to a local piano store.

Before you even list a piano for sale, research needs to be done on the instrument and brand. By this, I mean extensive research! Most pianos are built with a brand label, serial number, and model number. A simple Google search of that readily available information will show you a lot about your instrument.
For example, pianos pre-1960 might have ivory keys yet carry the same model number as pianos from 2019. The same can be said for the type of wood finish, hammer action parts, and even which factory the instrument was produced in. Certain features may be rare and present on only older models too. A detail like that can drastically change the value of your instrument.
In most cases, model numbers and serial numbers are going to be most important for grand pianos as opposed to uprights. This is not to say upright pianos do not hold some value, but grand pianos are usually of a higher quality and standard.
Used pianos will never sell for the original price, but they are still worth quite a bit. Another thing you can do is search for your piano or similar models and see what others are selling it for. If someone is selling a Yamaha C7 for $29,999 then you could undercut them and sell it for $25,999.
The player systems from the past also had a bad effect on the touch and feel of those pianos. Most of those pianos were blocky and not responsive. While a player system still holds some value, I would not consider it something that will significantly boost your overall sale price.
One of the most popular ways to sell a piano is to use an online marketplace. The most popular places to sell a piano online are eBay, Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace. A simple search on any of these platforms yields tons of pianos of all shapes, sizes, and price ranges.
I highly suggest providing these incentives if you are trying to sell an expensive used piano. This would include something like Steinway, Yamaha, or any luxury brand piano. If you are simply trying to sell an upright piano then I would not offer much more than loading the piano in a pickup truck or U-Haul moving it yourself, or at least providing the first tuning for free of charge.
In addition to reaching out to technicians, using online marketplaces, and posting ads, pianos can be sold in local stores on your behalf. Usually, there is some sort of a fee associated with selling your piano at a local store. Stores will charge you a stocking or storage fee, similar to how warehouses hold inventory.
At the very least, if the piano does not sell and you just want somebody to take it off your hands, consider donating to it. There are always churches, schools, after school centers, and local organizations looking for pianos.
To provide an accurate and fair valuation when we buy used pianos, we require some basic details like the piano make & model, serial number, reason to sell piano and most importantly, some photographs. These allow us to assess the condition of the piano, which is important when valuing it.

Unfortunately, we don't purchase antique uprights like the one pictured. Because many older pianos are worn-out and no longer suitable for piano lessons or serious use, we are only interested in potentially purchasing pianos of the following brands:
Sometimes, older pianos and their challenges for their owners and potential new pianists outweigh the costs of restoration or repair. Often, the age of the piano is less critical than the playability and performance of the piano. Eventually, the value of the piano as a piece of furniture and its sentimental value outweighs its value as an instrument. Over time gradual wear and deterioration take a toll on the condition of all pianos, whether regularly serviced or not. The best thing to do is to contact us by phone (901.323.8888) and arrange a disposal service for most old uprights. 041b061a72
