How does the process work?
Send us an email as above for pricing and time availability.  Once your pickup is booked in, we bring your piano in, assess it, and then store it for later deconstruction or refurbishment into a new future.

Why is recycling a more expensive option than dumping my piano in landfill?
Pianos that are staying as an instrument for rehoming first need to be fixed/cleaned/regulated/retuned.  Pianos to be recycled are deconstructed by hand into their many hundreds of components with metals sent to recyclers. Timber and parts are added to general stock and stored for later use by artisans etc.

What kind of things could I have made from my piano?
The range of things that can be made from a piano are limited only by your imagination – from large dining tables and cocktail cabinets to desks, hall tables and storage boxes to salt and pepper grinders, buttons and jewellery.  Click here to check out what has been made to date.


Can I keep track of how my piano is transformed if it is used to create new pieces?
If a piano is deconstructed to make new items, we carefully document and keep track via the unique serial number. There are many futures for unwanted pianos however, so keep in contact with us to find out how your pianos story continues.


Do you sell pre-loved pianos?
