Who we are

NASHVILLE PIANO RESCUE ™ is a different type of music store, we basically save good decent used pianos from early demise whether it be from storage or from people who will never play them. We have over 90 years of experience , an enormous logistical networking base and go out to find these pianos in other areas, mainly in the north, Midwest  and western states, we try to avoid instruments from the high humidity southern states. We prefer to deal with Vintage American Made Pianos 1880 - 2003.

The idea is to get affordable pianos into the hands of area musicians without breaking the bank. Our customers are working class people who have been told in the past that they should settle for less because of budget or enter into a finance agreement which will cause a financial hardship on a family. Since we do not sell or want to sell new pianos we cannot be influenced by anyone to keep prices high.  Pricing is based on average median income of what our target customer can afford.  The days of hearing you should settle for a 3 octave battery powered  keyboard are over.

NASHVILLE PIANO RESCUE offers free pickup of unwanted pianos ;  See Piano Pick ups for what we will accept and what we won't.  We do not pick up pianos left outdoors prior to pick ups. We do not work in high winds or on rainy days.  We do not do last minute pick ups . We would also appreciate that you exhaust all other possibilities for getting rid of your unwanted piano PRIOR to contacting us as although this is a free service we do a tremendous amount of planning in advance and showing up to find your piano gone elsewhere can be an issue.

***   Will Nashville Piano Rescue*** buy my piano?   We do buy pianos but only from Northern States and they must meet the following criteria.  Must have a recent inspection done by a qualified piano technician less than 30 days old.  Be able to show a bi-annual tuning history, must have documentation proving ownership and be stored in a climate controlled environment.

*** PIANO PICK- UPs ***   We will pick up Pianos either upright or grand at no cost provided there are no flights of stairs involved.  We frequent Nashville TN and Louisville KY on a regular basis so if you have something you would like us to pick up the easiest thing to do is contact us through the contact us tab of this website or you can call 615 425 6238 and or send us a text with photo to that same number and schedule a pick up.

PIANO TUNING:   We offer no nonsense professional piano tuning. The tuner will come out and tune your piano simple as that.  There wont be any up-selling going on, (telling you that you need 100's of dollars of work to do the job).  He may make a recommendation if needed but only if it really is.  

PRICING :   Low Overhead is Key to providing Value in Today's Market.  We like to say that our Kentucky Delivery is on a Courtesy Basis and not just a Free Service.  Mainly due to the fact that it is not easy, we don't want to see inexperienced people moving our pianos.  Prices are essentially based on our investment, where it came from, if it was shipped from overseas, Canada, off a mountain top etc.  What was directly involved, labor, repair and logistics wise to getting it here.  We do not base prices on Speculation of what everyone else is doing. 

WARRANTY:  We place a full Limited Warranty on everything that comes through our door and is sold from the Kentucky Store only. Nothing is more irritating today than to pay a lot of money for something only to have it fail. I go through this constantly with machine tool parts that are seemingly all made overseas.  If we work on the Pianos that come through here I will warranty it, regardless of age. We want to make sure that you aren't buying a mystery and you will have peace of mind.  This is a real warranty, we don't put some humidity related spin on it. If it breaks I will personally come to your house and fix the issue at no cost to you. 

STAGE SHELLS :  See the piano shell tab , we will be offering collapsible shells and building our own road-cases in all popular colors out of the Franklin Kentucky re-building shop beginning in January 2015.

DELIVERY:  Delivery is only available on pianos sold from the Franklin Kentucky store.  This covers a 50 mile immediate radius of 42134 but we also cover all of Metro Davidson, Williamson and Parts of Rutherford at no additional cost.
DELIVERY RADIUS :  We will be adding a map to the website that will show the delivery areas.  If you are not sure then call our number at 615 425 6238 .

TRADES: We do accept trades but all pianos have to be professionally assessed before we commit to taking anything. 

PARTS & QUESTIONS:  If you have any questions about  your piano, need a part  or refinishing, need how to advice email me and I will tell you the best course of action to take. We've been at this a very long time so we may have the simple solution. We are also updating the parts tab regularly with all kinds of out of production piano parts, related items for interior designers etc.

Contact us if you are in a bind and need a Free piano loaner for an event, it really makes no sense to us for a charity or small production to have to open their wallets and rent a piano which takes money away from their purpose. Pianos will be loaned out with free pickup and delivery.   We prefer that your music department person comes and looks at what's available in advance as stock changes without notice. Due to scams recently we want your request written on your charities letter head. We will also donate pianos and time/instruction to any charity/good cause looking to refurbish a piano for resale: EG  Boy scout projects etc.       We deliver any time of day or night 7 days a week with at least 1 day advanced notice.
