Piano Tuning Quotes - "Please Give Me a Quote"

Continue reading below, but I no longer give quotes. I cannot quote on something I've never seen. 

Fine tuning (2 HOUR APPOINTMENTS that include minor adjustments and vacuuming UNDERNEATH KEYS), my fee is $150 GST included. That price is for Vancouver, North and West Vancouver. For Richmond and Burnaby, the fee is $160.

Pitch raising or lowering IS INCLUDED, but you must understand that if your piano has not been tuned regularly, 2 times per year, every year, you should schedule another appointment in about 1-3 months. There is no way a piano can stay in tune after many years of neglect. When you attend a piano concert, you'll notice that the piano tuner comes on stage during intermission to make minor adjustments. So, if a piano goes slightly out of tune during the first part of a performance, imagine how far out of tune it will be in 6 months!

I always ask the customer to give me the general location of where the piano will be, the name of the piano and if possible, when it was last tuned.

At least this way, I have some information to help me assist the customer with general pricing guidelines.
