Q:  How long can I rent a piano for?

A:  We rent pianos private clients for up to 30 days, and for corporate customers, longer contract lengths are available.

Q:  I’m starting to take piano lessons – can I just rent until I know if I’m going to like it?

A:  Merriam offers a wide range of financing and leasing options for people wishing to lessen the up-front costs of piano purchase.  We don’t recommend renting for this purpose, because of its relatively high cost compared with longer-term purchase plans.

Q:  How far in advance do I have to book?

A:  We ask that you contact us at least 14 days in advance of your event, to ensure availability of both the pianos, as well as moving logistics.
