Repairs and restoration services are offered in our shop at a rate of $110.00 an hour, plus cost of parts and tax (*if applicable). The average simple repair takes 4-8 hours. More than likely, a piano that needs restoration will need lots of love and care, which can lead to 10+ hours of work. There is a 1 hour minimum bench fee that will be utilized to assess your equipment. If we can also complete your repair during this time we will do so. Otherwise we will provide an estimate based upon the assessment. The estimate provided is not a fixed figure. The customer will be billed for the actual time and parts utilized to perform the agreed upon service(s). Should the billable amount increase beyond 20% of the estimated figure, we will notify the customer and seek authorization before proceeding with any further work.

Rhodes Repair Services

After 20 years of restorations, we have developed a way of properly and efficiently setting up and regulating a piano so that each step logically follows the next. When done in order this ensures that no step needs to be repeated, thus saving the customer money. Although we specialize in the art of restoration we understand when a customer wishes only to repair. We also appreciate that budgets vary from customer to customer and will always work to utilize the budget in a way that provides the greatest overall impact with emphasis on the customer’s established goals. When discussing your repair, we will always offer our professional opinion as to what will provide the biggest improvement within your budget and hopefully avoid repeating steps when future service is requested.
