Commission sale

Commission sale

We can collect your piano, bring it to our Haslemere facility for preparation and sell it on your behalf on a commission basis. We undertake all the work required to prepare your piano for sale including cleaning, polishing and servicing before it is positioned in our showroom alongside our stock of other new and used pianos, photographed and listed on our website. Our rates start from as little as 15% and there is nothing for you to pay in advance, as all fees and commission are deducted from the proceeds of sale.

Indicative example: 

 Sale price of grand piano:   £10,000.00
Less commission at 15%: -£1,500.00
Less transportation: -£330.75
Less technical fees: -£634.50
Less VAT: -£493.05
Amount payable upon sale: £7,041.70


Your piano will be insured while in our possession and will be advertised on our website and in any appropriate printed media in order to secure the quickest possible sale. We always set a minimum sale value on the commission sale agreement to allow some negotiating room, but outside of this the decision to sell is always yours and we will do everything possible in order achieve the very best possible price. Please complete our valuation enquiry form for a quotation or contact us on 01428 647593.
