Delivery Charges (Nationwide)
You pay for the £120 delivery to your house and you also pay an extra £120 for the return journey. If you end up buying the piano outright we will refund the 2nd £120. This applies to all of England, Wales and most of Scotland.
We can deliver the piano upstairs if necessary but the price will be higher. Please email photos of your stairs to us at email@example.com

When to pay
We require payment to be with us by bank transfer or credit/debit card (over the phone) before we can arrange a delivery date. Please fill in the order form and make payment so that we can then book a delivery slot for you.
How to Pay
Initial payments for piano rentals must be paid by bank transfer and you can see this information on our Payment Options page
Buy later and get your Rent knocked off the purchase price
If you choose to buy the piano outright within 12 months of delivery all of your rental payments get knocked off the purchase price of the piano. If you buy the piano after 2 or 3 years you will still get the first 12 months of rent payments knocked off the purchase price.
Tuning and maintenance
You should have the piano tuned at least once every 6 months at your own expense. We can help find a tuner near you if you don’t already know somebody.
We will supply a free matching adjustable 2nd hand piano stool or you may order a brand new one for an extra £90. The 2nd hand ones (made in Japan) are heavier and stronger than the new ones (made in China).
Problems are very few and far between so you should enjoy a hassle-free time with any Yamaha U1. Any structural issues are covered by us and any ongoing regulation and maintenance issues are your responsibility. We require that the piano is not placed in a conservatory, sun-room or within 2 feet of an active radiator. Please keep the piano out of direct sunlight and a room with stable temperature/humidity levels
