Richard's Piano Service
About this pro
I take personal pride and care in how I treat my customers and their instruments. Reputations take years to build and moments to destroy, so I treat everyone as fairly and as respectable as I would want to be treated. You can trust me to be fair, honest, hard working, and trustworthy in all I do. I am human, and if and when mistakes are made, I will make it right. If I say I will do it, I will do it. Guaranteed! I love meeting new people, especially when we share a common interest such as music and pianos. I love the feeling of a job well done and seeing it all come together to make beautiful music at the end of a tuning session. There's nothing quite like playing a freshly tuned piano. The joy on the owner's faces and knowing that I've helped bring joyful music back into the house is well worth it for me. I love working with my hands, and this job has many opportunities for that, for sure!

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Tuning price is for basic fine tuning if piano is very close to pitch (proper tension across the board) Pitch raises are needed if piano is not close to pitch and is charged additionally. Repairs and regulation are not included in the tuning prices, unless very minor (taking only a few minutes) I will always let you know before work is done whether or not there will be additional work/charges.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I usually plan on an additional 30 min. to inspect a new client's piano, and if there are any concerns beyond basic tuning (needed pitch adjustments, repairs, regulation needs) we can determine what work to do now/later/or not at all, etc. This inspection time is included in the tuning price.
