In most cases, we do not buy pianos outright, but we do accept consignments, at a split of 60% Consignor / 40% Starbird. The full consignment terms can be found in the Sample Consignment Agreement below.
Note: We do not sell spinets. If your acoustic upright/ vertical/ console piano is 40″ or shorter, it might be a spinet. If you are unsure, please ask your tuner– or check out this short video, where they show a console first, and then a spinet.
We’ll need to assess your piano to decide if it is a viable candidate for consignment. We don’t always have space to take new consignments immediately, but we can put you on a consignment wait-list if necessary. If you are interested in consigning, please submit your information on the assessment page, and check Yes when it asks if you are hoping to consign.
If you have a deadline for relocating a piano, we can offer storage while you are on the consignment wait-list, or while you make other arrangements.

How to Sign the Consignment Agreement through your email
Watch the how-to video
When Starbird accepts your piano for consignment, our piano technician will create a consignment agreement through DocHub, and you will get an email asking for an electronic signature.
The email will say that is from Starbird Piano Gallery via DocHub, and the Subject will be “PLEASE SIGN” and will include your last name and a description of the piano.
- To get started, click “View Document” from the email
- Check the box to say you agree to use electronic records and signatures
- Then Click the “Let’s do this!” button
- The top section of the document will ask you to check ONE orange box
- Then review the rest of document and complete all required fields
[The video goes through this in more detail]
- If you find anything that doesn’t look right, go back to the DocHub email, and Reply to ask us about it before you finalize the agreement
- Click the “Finalize” button to submit the agreement
If you haven’t filled in all the required fields, you will not be able to finalize.
Note: DocHub will automatically send reminders as long as the Agreement is not finalized. You don’t need to reply to the reminders, and they don’t meant that we are impatient. They are just automatically generated by the system to help you remember to get back to it when you can.
