Pianos Rentals – Why You Should Rent Instead of Buy

piano rentals

There are plenty of situations where the case can be made for buying rather than renting. Cars, appliances, and furniture come to mind, right? It’s a general rule: why pay to rent something and have to return it when you can buy it and have something to show for your money? Your friends at SoCal Pianos want you to know that a noteworthy exception to the rule is renting a piano. If you are in the market for a new piano, renting can be a good way to find out more about pianos, the interest, commitment and playing goals of your family, and how much of an investment you want to make.

Piano Rentals 

There are many reasons to consider piano rental instead of buying. Let’s take a look at 5 reasons why renting may be your best option:

Test Drive

Just like a car, it’s a great idea to test a new piano and take it for a spin, if you will. This will enable you to try out a particular piano – whether it’s an upright, grand, console or digital – and get a feel for its strengths and weaknesses and its signature sound. 

Find the Right Teacher

If part of your rental plans includes setting up lessons for your child, it doesn’t hurt to experiment with more than one instructor. SoCal offers one of the largest selections of piano teacher references in the area. We’re confident we can help you find a perfect fit and at a nominal cost.

Lock in Price

When you rent from us, you can lock in today’s discount price for when you are ready to buy. Most pianos increase in price 7-10 percent per year, so this could result in significant savings. Also, many companies will not allow you to buy the piano you are renting … not a problem at SoCal.

Money in the Bank

At SoCal, the first 6 month’s rent payments are like making a deposit in a bank account; you can use that applicable credit towards your purchase during the minimum rental period.

No Pressure

If you love your rental piano and are ready to take the next step towards a purchase, great. If you’re not, that’s great, too. We will take the rental back with no further obligations.
