Where to Rent or Buy?

Typically, you can purchase new acoustic or digital pianos from music stores such as:

Long and Mcquade

Tom Lee Music

Costco also offers digital keyboards, great for beginner students (you can read consumer reviews, which are helpful in making a choice).

Specialized piano stores in Vancouver include:

Pacey’s Pianos

Showcase Pianos

Vancouver Music Gallery

Silverwood Pianos

Loewen Piano House

Used Pianos can be found at the above specialized piano stores.

Many piano owners who wish to sell their pianos frequently post in online ads such as Craigslist or Kijiji

However, when purchasing pianos from private owners, buyer beware!  The condition or quality of the pianos have not been checked by a piano technician, and you don’t want to pay more for a piano that requires expensive repairs.

The value of a piano depends on many factors such as name, model number, year, and whether the piano requires repairs, whether it has been regularly tuned, where it was placed, etc.  Just because a piano looks good on the outside does not mean it’s a good piano, and vice versa.

You can get your piano appraised here or check its value here or here.
