CONTRACT PIANO TUNING
A "Contract Piano Tuning" is optional and ideal if you play the piano regularly - saving you more money each visit.
An average piano tuning costs from £45.00 (no contract/ one-off local visit)
A local contract piano tuning is a fixed cost - only £42.50 per visit - saving you £5.00 per year.
# Professional, good amateur or regular pianists
# Music schools, colleges and universities/ theatre groups etc.
# Having more than one piano
# Older pianos requiring two or more tunings per year
# Peace of mind regular automated service
This service is available for all upright and grand pianos - new or old - same rate.
Customers are required to complete a small application form to enter into an agreement.
Short contract agreement renewed on an annual basis consisting of a minimum two piano tuning visits, six months apart.
Either: Annual payment of £85.00 for two visits (6 months apart) [saving you £5]
Or: Annual payment of £120.00 for three visits (4 months apart) [saving you over £10]
After the contract runs out (12 months), you can either renew it with another annual payment, or cancel it - the choice is yours.
Please note once payment has been made, we cannot refund it nor transfer it considerably later in the year.
If you require an additional visit which is not part of the contract (e.g. leading up to a concert or exam), please book this at any time at the normal rate. We are unable to exchange an extra visit for a contract visit.
If your piano has not been tuned for several years and badly out of tune, (and you play it regularly), the cost of a one-off tuning visit may exceed £60.00. Customers may continue along the one-off payment route, but by paying only an additional £25.00, it would be cheaper in the long run to enter into a short contract, saving you money each time.
BOOKING YOUR NEXT CONTRACT PIANO TUNING
