Please visit our “Buying Tips” link at chicagopianos.com for up-to-date, useful information about buying a piano. In particular, we recently added a Buying Tip (#1 on our list) that discusses some of the current caveats to buying a piano on craigslist, ebay or other online services where physically viewing the piano may not be easy.
In the interest of fairness, we wish to remind our readers that it is certainly possible to find a good deal on craigslist or ebay, but in the absence of becoming a piano buying expert, you may find yourself simply searching for price since the tools needed for you to gauge VALUE are far more complicated. And it is in this arena where piano buyers can get tripped up with the Buying Tip we’ve just added. We hope you find this useful!
