Curious about the age of your piano?
In most cases we can help you determine the age of your piano based on the brand and serial number.Because of the tremendous demand for information about the age and manufacturers of the over 12,000 brands of pianos, we charge a nominal fee of $5.00 for this service.
For your convenience, we have also listed some manufacturers that offer serial number/date information on their sites (free).
Please note: The $5.00 fee is to compensate for the time we spend researching this information. We often have to spend more time on pianos that have no information available because we need to check more resources to be sure we didn’t miss anything. For this reason, the $5.00 fee is non-refundable.
We cannot tell you what your piano is worth. For help in determining the value, please visit What’s It Worth?
If you would like to use our service, please fill in the How Old FORM Below and submit it to us.
We will email you whatever information we can find, please allow up to 10 business days from the time we receive payment (sometimes heavy demand puts us a little behind).
If you haven’t heard from us within 10 business days, please feel free to email us. If you are mailing your payment, please include the name and email address you used to fill in the form along with the brand and serial number of the piano.
For help in determing the value, please visit our What’s My Piano Worth? page.
