6. How is my musical instrument submission assessed?

Each musical instrument submission is given careful consideration. The photos of both the interior and exterior of the instrument that you provide help us to determine the condition of your instrument. The more photos and information you provide the better.

For piano donation, sometimes it is not possible to determine the instrument’s condition from photos alone, and it may be necessary to schedule an in-person inspection with a piano technician to determine the actual condition of the piano. Please note that in many cases, we are unable to accept pianos that are older than 30-40 years.

7. Who will pick-up my piano?

We only work with professional and fully insured piano movers. We will arrange for your piano to be picked-up by a local piano mover from your particular city and state. Since the piano movers we work with are separate from our organization, they are unable to provide you with a donation receipt when picking up your piano. Therefore, you will receive your acknowledgment letter after the piano has been picked-up.
