Are you a beginner piano player or just started learning? Purchasing a piano can be expensive and it may be some time before you are ready to commit to buying one. Hiring a piano is an excellent, cost-effective solution for beginner piano players.
Here are some reasons why hiring a piano is a cost effective solution, particularly if you’re a beginner:
1. You can take your time learning how to play the piano without having to worry about buying one.
2. You can find affordable pianos that will fit your budget.
3. You can hire a piano for long term or short term use, depending on your needs.
4. You can hire a piano quickly, allowing you to start practising your piano skills straight away.
Once you’ve decided that hiring a piano is a good idea, let’s look at some other considerations:
How much does hiring a piano in London cost?
The cost of hiring a piano start from as little as £30.00 per month, but we recommend shopping around and contacting several piano hire companies before entering into a hire agreement with them.
How long can I hire a piano for?
Pianos can be hired on a long term or short term basis to suit your needs. If you are unsure how long you need the piano for, many piano hire companies offer a rolling month-to-month contract with no minimum hire period. This means you can return the piano at any time with one month’s notice.
What type of piano should I hire?
There are many different types of piano available to hire. The type of piano you choose will depend on your budget, the size of your home and your personal preferences. Upright pianos are the most popular type of piano hired in London. They take up less space than grand pianos and are more affordable. If you have a larger budget, you may want to consider hiring a grand piano. Grand pianos have a more powerful sound and are better suited for advanced piano players.
No matter what your budget or skill level, there is a piano hire option to suit you. Hiring a piano is a great way to get started with playing the piano without making a large financial investment.
Can I try before I buy?
If you’re not sure whether you want to hire a piano long term, many piano hire companies offer a free trial period. This allows you to try out the piano for a short period of time before committing to hiring it for the longer term.
What if I want to buy the piano after I have hired it?
Some companies offer a Purchase Scheme whereby a percentage of the hire fees you have paid can be offset against buying either the piano you are hiring or any other piano. Talk to your Piano Hire Company about their options.
