Basic Listing Option
"E-consignment" of a piano can be either
of three ways. Using the "Basic Listing Option", you
are choosing to handle conversations with potential buyers, concerning
your piano-sale on your own. With this option we would put your
chosen contact information on the web site with the pictures
of the piano, & pricing info. Interested clients would then
contact you directly about your instrument.
To use the "Basic Listing Option", simply
e-mail several pictures of your piano to:
firstname.lastname@example.org. To use the web-site for
90 days send a check for $50 to:
Endorsed Piano Option
way to "E-consign" is the "Endorsed
Piano Option". With this option you should arrange to have
us tune, inspect, and appraise the piano. (Generally $90+tax
in Davidson County). This allows us to assure interested clients
as to the condition and musical-value of the instrument. Interested
buyers would contact Fretter's Piano Svc. by phone or e-mail
and we would bring or send them to see your piano. This helps
us to match a piano for the wants & needs of a buyer in a
practical way, plus present some idea already as to its integrity

case there is no fee.
Storage & Sale Option
times people that are moving to a new location wish to sell
their piano rather than take it along. To
often the "move-day" arrives before the "piano-sale-day".
For customers in these situations we offer the "Storage & Sale
Option" for those pianos that appraise for $2000 or more.
To use this approach for selling an instrument,
you should arrange for an Endorsement and appraisal of the piano.
