Second-hand pianos

Searching for a pre-owned piano? Keen to harness the benefits of buying second-hand? Then you’re in the right place.

Whether they are grand pianos, upright pianos, or digital pianos, here at Richard Lawson Pianos, you’ll discover used pianos from all the leading manufacturers, with a fantastic range of models to choose from.

All second-hand pianos supplied by us are fully refurbished, with our Yamaha and Kawai instruments, for instance, having gone through detailed checks and regulation in Japan, before being delivered to the showroom.

Upon arriving with us, our in-house team of piano experts – which includes technicians, tuners, and craftsmen – tune and set up these wonderful pianos so that they’re ready to be played and enjoyed. Thanks to their many years of experience, they can deal with every aspect of restoration and technical setup, so you can buy a second-hand piano from us in absolute confidence that it’s almost as good as new.


Why choose a second-hand piano?

A piano with a past. Pre-owned and preloved. It might sound like a romantic notion but there are a number of excellent reasons why opting for a used piano can be a great idea.

If you’re piano shopping on a strict budget and your heart is yearning for a grand piano but your purse is saying otherwise, you can enjoy significant savings by opting for a second-hand model. And as a piano can last a lifetime (and a used piano rarely depreciates in value), it can prove to be a smart long-term investment.

In truth though, money considerations are only part of the reason to shop for a pre-owned piano.

Yes, their age reduces the price, but we love the idea of the musical history that comes with a pre-loved instrument. Re-conditioned and brought back to life by our skilled teams, we’d challenge you to be able to tell any real difference between a new model and one that has been pre-owned.

Advantages of buying a used piano

  • Savings for all – experienced pianist or just starting out, there are bargains to be had for everyone.
  • Backed by the same guarantees – used pianos may be up to half the original asking price but, buy from us, and you’ll still enjoy all the same benefits of buying new, including a full 5-year guarantee and a 30-day trial period.
  • Investment – an old piano doesn’t depreciate as quickly as a new model, making it a smart investment.
