The Cost of Piano Tuning

Just like when you go to the market to buy commodities, there is no merchant who sells their produce at the same price as another. They all have their quotations which depend on many variables. In the same way, the cost of piano tuning is not the same for all tuners. It depends on certain variables also. These variables include;

  • The skill of the tuner

If a piano tuner is highly skilled, he/she is in very high demand and therefore is likely to charge considerably more than the tuner who barely knows what they are doing and just charges anything and moves on.

  • Distance

If a piano tuner has to travel a long distance to tune your piano, your cost might be slightly higher because he/she has to recover the amount used to travel to and fro and also the time that was used on your project alone.

  • Experience of the tuner

Experience of the piano tuner is another variable that determines how much one has to spend to get their piano tuned. The more experience the tuner has, the higher the cost. The lower the experience of the piano tuner, the lower the cost of tuning it.

  • Age of the piano

The age of the piano is a huge factor in the determination of the cost to be charged for piano tuning. If the piano is a bit old, it requires more work and as a result the cost of tuning increases. If the piano is new however, it only requires a little touch-up and therefore the cost will be considerably lower.
