A piano is a beautiful instrument. An old broken-down piano can become an unsightly mess that distracts from the interior of your living room or family room. If the time has come for you to say goodbye to your old piano to create space for something else, you’ll quickly learn that an old broken-down piano is not easy to simply throw away. It will leave you contemplating how to get rid of a piano.
Since piano disposal can be so burdensome, it might be a good idea for you to pass the task on to someone else. Honestly, you probably have no idea where to start. That’s why you might be far better off hiring a professional piano removalist like Clutter Trucker.
What Alternatives Do You Have for Piano Disposal?
A piano is essentially a large piece of furniture that has been designed to play music. Given its size and the fact its materials don’t break down easily, sending it off to a landfill is not always the best option. If something is not the best option, you should always seek other alternatives before proceeding.
With a big piano, you might have other options for your piano removal. If by chance the repairs needed to make it functional again were reasonable, you might want to try donating it. It’s even possible you can post online and an interested party might be willing to come to take it off your hands.
If you decide to go the donation route, you’ll want to start by contacting organizations that might be interested in a piano. Charities, recreation centers, retirement homes, and churches are all organizations that might want to take a look at what you have to offer.
Remember, donations to licensed nonprofits might be tax-deductible. You would be able to write off an amount that is equal to the “fair market value” of the piano as is.
If your piano still has some somewhat functional parts/materials, it’s possible it could be recycled or repurposed. Since you don’t want to invest a lot of time looking for a piano recycling option, you might want to call a couple of recycling centers and see if they would be at all interested in what you have to offer. If they will accept it and offer to come to get it, your problem has reached a good resolution.
Hiring a Junk Removal Service
If all else fails, we at Clutter Trucker might have the perfect solution. As junk removal professionals, we will know exactly how to address the situation. Please keep in mind that sometimes, we encounter some situations where we might not be able to accommodate your request. The best thing to do is let one of our team members come to your location to assess the situation. They will be able to discuss your piano disposal options with you. If we can give it a go, we will give you a competitive and affordable quote.
Preparing for Piano Removal
Before you contact a piano disposal service for a piano pick up, you might be able to save a little money by dismantling it as much as possible. This is something you might want to consider given that the piano is likely sitting in an area that would not be easily accessible.
The dismantling process should start from the top with you working down to the bottom. For the most part, you want to take apart as much as possible. Doing so will make it lighter and easier to move. At the least, you should be able to remove the top portion, the desk portion where the sheep music goes, and the legs. Anything else you feel emboldened to remove would be helpful.
After disassembling it as much as possible, you should focus on clearing a path through the house for the disposal team. If you do this prior to piano pick up, they can walk right in, gather the parts, and be on their way.
We want to emphasize that our elite team of professional junk removers always takes great care in and around a customer’s home. We have great respect for the fact that your other furniture pieces have value to you as part of your home. We request you clear a pathway ahead of time as an extra layer of protection for your household assets. It also allows our team members to be as efficient as possible. Again, the more you can do will likely translate to some savings.
