Piano Removal & Recycling Services

Piano hauling, piano removal, piano recycling: Old pianos hauled away.

  • Moving? Out of time?
  • Don’t know what to do with your old piano?
  • Do you need some extra space and don’t need a piano that no one plays?

You have come to the right place. I haul away old pianos.

How: You help me balance it as I put it on my truck, and it will be gone. (If you are not able to help me, I have helpers I can hire for $30/hour.)

Where: Greater Seattle area: most of King County, and all of Whidbey Island

How Much:

  • Whidbey Island: – For up to 3 steps I charge $200 flat rate (plus tax) to take away your old upright piano, and $300 for a grand piano.
  • Greater Seattle Area: – For up to 3 steps I charge $250 flat rate (plus tax) to take away your old upright piano, and $350 for a grand piano.
  • Outside Seattle (south of Renton, east of Sammamish, north of Everett): – The base rate to haul an upright outside of greater Seattle is $300, and $400 for a grand.

Additional charges:

  • For more than three steps, add $50 to the base price.
  • For more than ten steps, add $100.
  • For unusual terrain, such as hills, rough terrain, tilted slopes, tedious obstacles or severely inclement weather, add another $50.
  • For long distances, call to discuss options.

When my capacity is at its limit, my prices go up or you may have to wait until I have space. My indoor storage capacity is currently near its maximum limit; if no pianos leave, any additional pianos will be stored in tents, which is not good for the pianos especially during the rainy season.

When: Generally I move pianos on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and occasionally weekends. Call ahead to schedule.

Where do These Pianos Go: I am a piano recycler. I can’t stand seeing pianos being thrown in the dump. I would rather have them remain functional in the world and to be used in some form.

If it plays, it might be rented or sold at a low price, or even given to a starving musician for free. I donate and give away most of these pianos.

If it needs work, one of four things will happen to it. Ideally it will be:

  • Restored and recycled into the world as a playing instrument
  • Given away for free as is
  • Dismantled and salvaged for parts
  • Converted into an art piece

Death of the pianoRegardless of its fate, I will guarantee that your piano will not end up in a land fill.

The vice president, Brian O’Mara, laments the fact he has to dispose of five to ten pianos a month.)
