4. Awards and Discount Pricing
Classic Pianos has won numerous awards for sales and service from the companies we represent. Our high volume of sales often entitle us to receive special pricing or to take advantage of incentives not offered to most dealerships. In turn, this allows us to pass on lower prices to our customers.
5. Guaranteed Price Match
In the unlikely event that an authorized dealer offers a legitimately lower price than us, with proof, we will match or beat that price. Simply Guaranteed.
6. Exceptional Piano Preparation
No matter how well a piano is built it does not sound or play its best until it has been “prepped.” All new pianos need adjustments and refinements after they leave the factory. Sadly, many dealers neglect these important steps in order to cut their expenses. At Classic Pianos, we have a checklist of procedures that are performed on every acoustic piano before they arrive on our showroom floor or in your home.
7. Institutional Support
Classic Pianos is very involved in supporting local and regional music institutions, such as college and university music departments, through piano loaner programs and fundraising events. Each year we provide many instruments for short-term use at these schools at little or no cost to them.
8. Special Sale Events
-- Our institutional loaner programs also provide us with the opportunity to organize special sale events centered on each individual school to help sell the slightly used pianos and provide a way to continuously support the school’s musical needs. These sales are very popular with both the alumni and the general surrounding community.
-- Classic Pianos is periodically approached by banks that have needed to repossess or liquidate pianos from a dealer that has either retired or failed to pay for “floored” inventory. By helping the bank liquidate this inventory we are able to provide even greater savings to our customers.
9. Moving & Delivery
The sale is not complete until your piano is in your home. The arrival of your new piano is often a very emotional, memorable day. Each store partners and develops relationships with the most qualified professional piano mover in their town to ensure your piano is delivered in the most careful and efficient manner to your home. Each team of movers works very closely with store personnel and so that no special need will be missed.
10. Community & Culture
-- Most of our locations have a dedicated Recital Space for local teacher, student, and community performances. Piano teachers, especially, need a space with a professional piano to conduct their very important student performance recitals. Often these recital spaces are used by the local and regional Music Teachers Association for judging and competitions as well.
-- Classic Pianos provides and maintains multiple fleets of C&E (Concert & Event) performance pianos available for rent to the greater musical community. These pianos are often utilized in some of the most important concerts of the year in each city.
