Confirmation of appointments
Appointments booked online are not confirmed until you receive a booking confirmation by e-mail. I aim to confirm all bookings within 12 hours. Please note that I may need to ask to adjust the time of your appointment, depending on the distance I need to travel between appointments.
I do my utmost to get to you on time for your confirmed appointment. Delays at previous appointments, or transport difficulties may hold me back. In those cases I aim to communicate my updated ETA as soon as possible.
If your piano is in a condition that is not tunable, I will inform you as soon as I can. In most cases, this becomes evident in the first 10 minutes. If the piano is not tunable, I charge a £25 call-out fee to cover my transport expenses.
Liability of damage
If I asses that tuning your piano is a risk to the instrument for any reason (rusty strings and tuning pins, cracked soundboard, etc.) I will inform you prior to tuning. I will need your consent to proceed.
I accept cash, cheque and bank transfer payments. If you are a limited company, or a registered charity, I can invoice you. In this case payment is due within 15 days of invoice date.
