Second hand Goods
Items which have previously been owned and used are sold as second hand by the nature of being pre-owned cosmetic blemishes to the finish and casework should be expected together with reasonable wear to the instrument and mechanical parts. Demonstration models are sold as seen at a reduced price and are not deemed to be brand new. We do not sell second hand goods as yet, on-line as people’s expectations on what to expect for a pre-owned piano can vary. We always recommend visiting the showroom and trying a piano before your decide to purchase. There is no
substitute for playing, seeing or hearing an instrument – no image or photo can ever truly capture the individual sound of a real instrument.
Suitability of Goods
Countrywide Piano Centre Ltd cannot and does not in any way attempt to warrant the suitability of goods for a particular purpose or level of playing ability, it is the Buyer’s responsibility to carefully check specifications, sizes and compatibility. It is the Buyers responsibility to ensure that the correct product is being purchase. Goods are not sold on a trial basis. All sizes & weights shown in any of advertisements or on our web pages are given as a guide only. Please note that colour and finishes shown on our web pages can vary according to your own computer monitor. We always recommend that you visit the showroom in person to satisfy yourself of the suitability prior to purchase.
Availability & Delivery
Where possible we have tried to indicate the availability of products on our web pages and in any advertisements however, this is an indication of availability only. Web pages or any advertisements elsewhere are not a “live” status of current stock. Delivery prices shown on our web site for delivery from our showroom are at a heavily subsidised rate and not to be taken as a quotation for delivery collecting or moving customer’s own pianos. Prices quoted for delivery are always given as straight forward access without steps, stairs, ramps, and some locations may be excluded. If you are in any doubt whatsoever please contact the showroom prior to booking or ordering. Countrywide Piano Centre ltd always takes great care when moving pianos however due to the very nature of moving heavy musical instruments it is not possible to clean piano trolleys before entering your home nor can our delivery crew remove footwear due to health & safety regulations therefore we cannot accept any responsibility whatsoever for dirty marks on flooring or carpet. It is not possible to guarantee that the transfer of grit or gravel will not adhere to our piano trolleys which might scratch
flooring. Delivery times are always given as a guide AM or PM however, our crew are always happy to give you as much or as little advance notice by phone, on the day, as you wish, just let us know.
Piano Stools / Heat Protection Mats
Prices do not include any accessories unless indicated. Piano stools are available from the showroom and are usually heavily discounted if purchased at the same time as purchasing a piano from the showroom. If you have under floor heating it is VERY IMPORTANT to protect the piano from heat, ideally if possible isolate the heating away from the piano or we sell piano heat protection rugs which will help but are not guaranteed to stop heat damage. Prices vary depending on the size.
