Tips for Success:
- Make sure when you photograph you piano, you dust it and clean it first
- Make sure the piano is in good working order and has been tuned recently (less than 1 year ago)
- Try to take pictures of everything. Remember the better the pictures the more likely it is to sell.
- If you are selling a player piano with rolls, make sure you photograph those as well (stack them next to each other and just take a picture larger enough so that you can see the titles of the songs in the picture).
