How The Rent-To-Own Programme Works
The particular advantage of the 'Rent-To-Own' programme is that it allows you immediate access to a good quality piano for a small monthly payment, without a big initial outlay. This means that you're able to try out the piano before committing. Once you've passed the minimum rental period you can continue renting for as long as you wish. You can buy the piano you're hiring at any time. If your piano needs any repairs whilst on rental a technician will come out to fix the problem free of charge.
If you decide to buy your rental piano within the first 6 months (12 months for acoustic pianos), all the rental you've paid will be taken off the original price of the piano.
Piano rental costs range from £30-£95 per month.
- New digital pianos from £35 per month
- Secondhand digital pianos from £30 per month
- Secondhand upright pianos from £25 per month
- Grand pianos from £95 per month
