At EMS Piano, we rarely come across a piano that is beyond repair, but often there are a number of factors to take into account. In some cases, a partial job can be cheaper than a replacement, but a complete job may be preferred. We can give you good information and an honest opinion.
In practice, as pianos come towards the end of their lives, they can get more expensive to maintain and in some cases it may be appropriate to replace an old one. On the other hand, a well-loved and much used piano can be a thing of beauty, and frequently a family heirloom, and in these cases an owner may decide that they would like some substantial repairs. When on-site repairs are impossible, partial or complete restoration can be done at our workshop.
If you do opt for a full service, our 40 years’ experience in the industry gives us the requisite knowledge to restore your instrument by making only necessary repairs for the best result possible. Other firms may want to charge you for unnecessary repair work and try to encourage you purchase additional items you don’t need, but that is not our way.
With over 40 years of experience EMS Piano can help furnish you with all the knowledge to make an informed decision. We are completely independent, unaffiliated to any other company or vendor. So and we will not push you down any particular route to line our pockets. There are many thousands of parts within a piano, and a fault in one or two of them might not show up until the work has nearly finished. It is sometimes possible to anticipate such problems, such as a tendency for a piano to break strings, but the extent of this cannot be accurately known. Therefore a risk assessment is done, whereby you are presented with a percentage likelihood of costs escalating, so that you can decide what you want to have done, with the benefit of the best available information. This demonstrates our craftsmanship, integrity and customer service. We prefer to keep our customers for life and we believe that a happy customer is a repeat customer.
Please get in touch with us if you have any issues with your piano, no matter how minor or major, and EMS Piano Restoration Manchester will endeavour to help as best we can.
