Piano Warehouse History

Over 36 years of successful business!

We are probably the largest retailers of both new, secondhand and digital pianos in the UK, with showrooms in Willesden Green, North West London and Surbiton, Surrey. We are main dealers for Yamaha, Steinmayer, Weber, Kemble and Gors & Kallmann acoustic pianos, as well as Yamaha and Roland and Kurzweil digital pianos.

We are dedicated specialist in pianos covering everything from sales and rentals, to restoration, repairs and tuning. Our technicians are experienced in all aspects of piano maintenance, restoration and tuning.

We pride ourselves on being able to offer the best deals to our customers due to our size and ability to get the best prices from our suppliers. We also aim to offer the very best level of service and aftercare once the piano has been installed in your home.

We are also fully geared to offer the most comprehensive nationwide delivery and after sales service, with our specialist moving teams and network of tuner technicians across the UK.

Piano Warehouse started out by exporting second hand pianos to Italy, France and the USA in 1975. This was at a time when there was a surfeit of old pianos that had accumulated since Victorian times and were idling in people’s homes across the UK (due to ever increasing forms of other types home entertainment). The sheer quantity, quality and price made them very desirable to overseas dealers. In 1977 the business expanded into retailing of restored pianos from showroom premises in North London and a year later on the back of increasing demand for our pianos we moved to larger premises in Hampstead.

The business continued to grow and expanded into stocking a wide range of new pianos, outgrowing the Hampstead premises. We then opened an additional showroom in Camden Lock in North London which focused on second hand instruments while the Hampstead showroom focused on new instruments. In 1985 we combined both showrooms by moving to new larger premises in Highgate Road, Kentish Town. This offered much larger space to further increase the range of pianos on offer including the growing popularity of digital pianos. At the same time the business gradually moved away from selling old restored pianos. Inevitably as time went by the availability became more restricted and the condition of those pianos that were available left a lot to be desired due to the accumulated effects of age and modern central heating, (not, thankfully, an issue with new pianos).

In 1995 Piano Warehouse bought a large piano retail business in Surbiton, Surrey that had been in business for over forty years, and has given Piano Warehouse the ability to offer customers from North West London right across to South West London and Surrey easier access to view our comprehensive range of acoustic and electric pianos.  In May of 2012 our Kentish Town showroom and warehouse closed due to redevelopment and we relocated to better and much larger premises in Willesden Green allowing for a larger range of pianos to be on display.
