We do not quote our piano rebuilding work on an hourly rate basis, rather opting for fixed fee charging. We do quote on repair work so please ask for the cost if price is a concern.
Piano Tuning is based on the hourly rate that is charged by the PNCC for Administration or committee administration staff – this rate can be found at https://www.pncc.govt.nz/council-city/fees-and-charges/planning-services-fees-and-charges/. We use this rate as a datum to keep inline with inflation, however we believe the skill set required to tune a piano is far above that of admin staff.
A normal tuning should take about 2.5 hours from leaving the workshop to returning.
