George C, Retired

My late wife and I bought a grand piano from Pacey’s pianos about 30 years ago. It is a beautiful big black grand piano. Sometimes I think my wife liked the piano more than me! We are both very accomplished piano players but horrifically, the movers dropped our piano from 5 feet when I last moved. The insurance company would replace nor repair the piano due to the severity of the damage and the cost. I was absolutely heartbroken. The piano was more than an instrument to me, it brought me so much joy. I decided to get my own quotes and research. Pacey’s Pianos was very sincere and knew all the right answers. They were the only ones prepared to do such a complex job. The best news was the insurance company even picked up the tab! And of course, the Piano was perfect just as promised.

Lynn J, Designer

I had this piano in my basement that I got for free from an English bar. It was in very very bad shape but I guess I am a little bit eccentric so a free grand piano; how could you go wrong? This piano sat in my basement for 10 years collecting dust and looking very worn. When I decided to sell my house and move to the valley I had to make a decision. Sell this piano and buy another one or restore it. Once I started calling piano stores about the piano everyone wanted to buy it. No one would tell me why or give me any advice. But then I called Pacey’s. They gave me the age, the history and even came out to give me a free evaluation. After speaking to their experienced and helpful staff, I realized that I had a very special piano. It is a beautiful Heintzman 1905 seven foot grand piano. Being a designer I am a perfectionist myself and if I was going to have it rebuilt, it needed to looks perfect. Pacey’s assured me that it would be “just as promised” and it was.

Other products and services from Pacey's Pianos


Piano Storage | Pacey's Pianos

Pianos should be kept as far as possible from all sources that affect the change in temperature and humidity: heat and air conditioning vents, windows, baseboards, radiators, fireplaces, open kitchens, laundry and outside walls. Before storing your piano, make sure they are specifically insured for your piano and not for general inventory or merchandise if they have insurance at all.


Piano Appraisal | Pacey's Pianos

The value for insurance purposes may be higher than fair market value as the insurance company needs to replace the instrument as soon as possible. This provides an insurance company with a detailed report, including photographs, provenance and a full documentation of the piano’s condition. If you need a piano appraisal, Pacey’s Pianos will provide detailed information you can trust.


Piano Repair | Pacey's Pianos

Return your piano to perfect working order, restoring the touch and sound to its optimal consistency across all of the notes. If a piano has not been tuned in a long time, a year or more, it is often necessary to perform a pitch raise. Once the strings have been brought to their proper tension levels, then the actual tuning can take place. Usually caused by humidity changes, need of regulation, or spilled juice, though in no particular order.


Piano Moving | Pacey's Pianos

Whether you are moving your piano downstairs in the same home, across town, or across the country our experienced, bonded, and insured movers are able to help. Over the years we have moved thousands upon thousands of pianos and you can rely on Pacey’s unbeatable reputation and experience in the piano community.


Piano Tuning | Pacey's Pianos

Moisture and heating affect the sound board, and changes in temperature cause the pins and strings to move ever so slightly, but enough to change the sound. All pianos require tuning in order to keep them sounding the best that they can and tuning a piano is as much art as it is science. As any piano player understands, it is the fine details of the piano that determine the feel and sound of a particular instrument.
