Piano Pickup, Disposal, and Removal | The Junky Boys

Pianos Pickup are heavy and bulky items that can be difficult to remove and dispose of. If you have a piano that you need to get rid of, there are a few things you need to know in order to make the process as smooth as possible.

First, it’s important to understand that pianos are not easy to simply throw away. They are large, heavy items that require special care and attention when it comes to removal and disposal. If you simply put a piano out on the curb, chances are it will not be picked up by your city’s waste management department.

The Process of Piano Removal

Selling a Piano

Before making the decision of disposing a piano, it’s always a good idea to see if you can sell the piano. Potential buyers may come and move a piano for you. Make sure the piano is in good condition to receive a good offer. It’s always a good idea to have a piano technician to tune the piano before putting it up for sale.

To ensure that you have the best chances of selling your piano, follow these steps:

  1. Clean your piano. A dirty piano won’t look good in pictures.
  2. Take high-quality pictures of your piano in great lighting. A modern-day cell phone camera is a great way to capture high-quality photos.
  3. Post your piano for sale on websites, like Craigslist, OfferUp, Facebook Marketplace, etc. Make sure to describe what type of piano it is (e.g. grand piano or a baby grand piano), how old it is, the last time it’s been tuned, etc. Price your piano within a reasonable range to get a decent amount of offers. Post your piano for sale on specific websites used for piano re-selling, such as pianomart.com or Music Exchange.
  4. Communicate a way for the piano to moved. Offer a lower price if a buyer will come to you to pickup the piano or if they’ll hire a piano mover.

Piano Donation

The Beethoven Foundation also accept piano donations. Donations will also vary on the condition of your piano, the type of piano, and the size of the piano. Ensure that your piano is in working condition. Organizations will not accept pianos that broken or in non-working condition.
