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.
