Long term hire:

We have a fleet of approximately 60 upright hire pianos in Cape Town alone. The demand for hire pianos is high, so there may be a waiting period involved, depending on your requirements.

These pianos are made available for customers, typically, with kids starting lessons or where purchasing a piano is not immediately an option.  We charge R750 per month, with a once off delivery fee (and collection fee once the piano is returned). When you are in a position to purchase a piano from us, whether pre-owned or new, you will receive 6 months of your hire fee off the purchase price of your new piano.  This is to allow customer to save up to purchase the right piano for their needs, while still making use of a piano. 


Our hire pianos are not available for sale.
