Yamaha U3 or U1 Piano Rental Scheme

We are currently only renting Yamaha U1 pianos, not Yamaha U3 pianos, sorry. Please visit our Yamaha U1 Rental page.

[Original article follows]

I think it’s high time that I started allowing my pianos to be rented out on a monthly basis. Many shops do this up and down the country so I thought I’d better join in. If you have seen other shops offering better/different terms just let me know and I’ll be happy to come up with a custom agreement for you. I’m new to this so please do get in touch with your thoughts

Here are the terms

Choosing a piano

You are very welcome to visit any of my showrooms to choose a piano. Please see the links at the top of this page to see my current stocklist and also my latest video showing the current stock. Bring the family, you will be given a 100% private viewing.

Delivery Charges

Within 10 miles – £100 each way. Total £200 payable up front
Nationwide – £170 each way. £340 payable up front
Remote areas or stair jobs – Please ask for a price
If you buy the piano you will receive a refund of £170 because you will no longer need to pay for the return delivery.

Total to pay up front

Figured removed as we are no longer offering Yamaha U3 rental.

Buy later and get your Rent knocked off the purchase price

If you decide to buy the piano at any point within 12 months of delivery you can have every penny of your rental payments knocked off the purchase price of the piano. You are welcome to continue renting the piano beyond the 12 month point (in blocks of 6 months with payment due up front) but if you decide to buy it later you can only apply your first 12 months rent against the purchase price.

Tuning and maintenance

Your first tuning (6 weeks after delivery) is charged at £50. After that, you are required to have the piano tuned at least once every 12 months. It is recommended that you have the piano tuned every 6 months but I’m happy for you to tune it every 12 months if you prefer.


If any faults develop with the piano I will arrange for it to be fixed at my expense. You won’t pay a penny and the piano will stay in your home whilst the problem is addressed. Problems are very few and far between with the Yamaha U3 and U1 as they are built to a very high standard and are therefore very very reliable.
