Why are there so many free pianos on Craigslist?

Limited Market Demand: If the local demand for a particular type of piano is low, there probably won’t be buyers willing to pay for them. As a result, they’ll have to be given away to gain any interest.

Cost of Moving: Disposing of pianos can be expensive. So to avoid removal costs, some people offer their pianos for free to anyone willing to take them.

Condition and Repair Costs: Pianos in need of substantial repairs or refurbishment likely can’t be sold for anything. In such cases, owners may prefer to give them away for free instead of investing in repairs.

Free Piano Scams: There are scammers taking advantage of people’s interest in a free piano. They’ll claim to have it delivered to you directly before you even see it. Read our guide on how to avoid free piano scams!

Donating to a Good Cause: Generous people may want to find their high-quality piano a new loving home. This is rarer than most people think, but it can happen!

While enticing, free pianos will require moving and may require big repairs. This could outweigh the cost of purchasing a higher-quality piano for sale from a piano dealer.

The instrument could be in unrepairable condition too. So it’s very important to have a technician evaluate its condition before you take it.
