There are many reasons to rent a piano. Perhaps you are staying at one of the many lovely summer homes in the Berkshires for only a few months. Perhaps you are thinking about purchasing a piano but would like to hear and play it in the space where it would live. We offer delivery, tuning, maintenance, and consultation so that you can find a piano that fits your needs.

For those interested in owning a piano, the first year of rental payments and round trip moving go towards purchase of any piano we own. For example, if you rent one of our uprights for the summer, then decide you want to buy one of our grands, you will get credit for all rental and moving payments.

The cost of renting any piano includes a round-trip moving fee and one onsite tuning after the piano has settled into its environment. All of our pianos include climate control systems that help to mitigate fluctuating temperature and humidity to keep the action and pitch stable.

Our general formula is to charge 3% of the selling price monthly, plus round trip moving and tuning fees.

All monthly payments for the first year, including the initial cost of moving and tuning, go towards purchase of the rental piano or any other piano we own.

Payments are made in 3-month increments at the beginning of each rental period.

The first payment includes round trip moving and the first tuning.

For example, the monthly rental charge for this 5'7" Steinway M is $585.

This 5'8" Mason A costs $525 monthly to rent.

Tunings cost $185.

The cost of round trip moving depends on our mover’s rates, and the logistics of moving the piano.

If you give us your address and logistics info (stairs, ground floor, piano location, etc.), we can get you an estimate.

The cost of round-trip transportation for a small upright, locally and without stairs, starts at $650*. Grands start at $850 round-trip.

Example: The cost of a local three month summer rental of one of our uprights would be $1560.
This includes the Cost of the Piano for three months, the Round-Trip Delivery, and One tuning.
