Piano Tuners Vary in Quality

Just like when you go to the market to buy commodities, no merchant 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.

The Distance of Tuner and your Piano

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.

The Location of the Tuner

Cost of services for the majority of businesses throughout the entire will vary from region to region. This is because the cost of living varies, mostly affected by the cost of the housing market. So, you can expect services in the South to be more expensive than some of the services offered in the North of the United Kingdom. So, this is one variable of several that you should factor in, so there isn’t always an industry fixed price for tuning.

However, that said you should obtain multiple quotations to ensure that tuning your piano is not ridiculously out of proportion when compared to others, this includes a high price and low prices. Extremely low prices are often too good to be true, and you should proceed with caution and don’t hesitate to ask them how they are so cheap.

The 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.
