There have been so many special events in my life where, looking back, I can see that a piano was one of the main things that made them special. This goes for weddings, funerals, parties, graduations, and more – the ones I remember the best all had a piano involved.
And it’s no wonder. The piano has become the world’s most popular musical instrument for a reason. There’s just no comparison when it comes to finding a single instrument that can fill an entire hall with music, engaging and enlivening everyone there. Whether it’s in a home or at a special event, a piano makes life better.
Unfortunately, a good piano is still a pretty pricey proposition. Even a decent inexpensive model costs a few thousand dollars, and truly great pianos can run into six-figure territory. Not everyone has that kind of cash on hand. Luckily, there’s another option for piano-lovers: to rent pianos as needed, either for one off-events, or for extended periods.
The Benefits If You Rent Pianos, Rather Than Buying
While nothing can entirely replace the feeling of truly owning your own piano, if you choose a piano rental, you’re getting the next best thing. You can have a piano in your home, to be enjoyed whenever you like, while still only paying a small fee per month, as low as only $25. At those rates, virtually anyone with a house or apartment could afford a piano.
When you rent a piano, one bonus is that you don’t have to worry about what happens if you have to move, or you no longer have the space to devote. You don’t have to think about having to sell or discard your instrument. If you no longer want it, you just give us a call and we’ll take it back, with no fuss or hassle.
This avoids any commitments you might not be able to keep in the future. If, for example, you have a young piano student, this is a great way to give them a piano without worrying that in a year they’ll decide they like the clarinet instead. It’s also a great way to try out multiple pianos while you try to find the perfect one.
Rent Pianos to Own
On the other hand, if you want to own a piano, renting a piano to own is also an option! Nearly any piano in our store can be purchased this way, as an option. As long as you keep making monthly payments, the piano is yours to do with as you please. Pay it off in full, and you own it! On the other hand, if you decide you don’t like it or cannot continue paying, you can send it back any time after the first six months.
This gives you, as a buyer, tremendous flexibility. You can try out piano ownership and see if it suits you. If it doesn’t work out, all you lose are the monthly rental fees. If it does work, the piano can be yours.
Don’t forget about piano rentals for special occasions and one-time shows. We can deliver it to any location and pick it up afterwards. We can even provide a tuner or other performance needs such as a pianist should your event call for it.
There’s simply no reason your wedding, bar mitzvah, funeral, concert, or other event needs to lack a piano. The rates are affordable, and we make sure it arrives in plenty of time before the show.
A Piano For Every Season
We love pianos, and we love helping people get pianos. Whether it’s only for one day, or potentially for the rest of your life, we want to make sure you have the piano you need. Choosing to rent pianos is just one way to make that happen.
