Actually a couple of hundred on the piano....what I've recently learned is that you need a professional paino mover to transport it and this could cost considerably more than the piano, at times. What do you have in mind?

If I don't find one locally, then the transport can be upwards of $500.
Thanks for the tips everyone.

An upright for $150 ?!?! Wow... I can't believe anyone would ever get rid of a piano for such a little price. Now I have hope of finding one for myself once I get a place of my own.

Seems that most people unwillingly part with their older uprights since the professional movers and the re-tuning costs can be very high at times and they know this, so letting it go for next to nothing at times is their only option. I'll keep looking though.

have you found one yet? I might be able to help you out if you can move quickly. We are moving and I have to part with my upright. If you are interested, take a look at http://rossrader.com/piano and name your price. The only catch, it has to go this week!

Drop me a note to ross@hover.com if you'd like more details.

Wander the halls and look at the bulletin boards at the Faculty of Music or the Con. There are ads up for various instruments (including pianos) all the time.

I had an upright moved from kitchener to Toronto by local Kitchener movers for $150.00.
It's still for sale, but I won't be back in TO until the second week in March.
