Re: Just bought a piano off of ebay (uh oh!)

Just thought id update this thread and tell you all how things are. I had a good streak of luck.

Re: Just bought a piano off of ebay (uh oh!)

its £250 from manchester to London for the transportation of the Piano and the tuner only wants £20!

if you ever need me to program software for you let me know! I know a bit about SEO (search engine optimization) aswell so maybe I can help you with that if you want.

Re: Just bought a piano off of ebay (uh oh!)

The only condition of claiming a free piano from me is that you hire a tuner of your choice from the oldham/rochdale/manchester area to pop round and choose a piano for you from my collection of slightly tatty partex pianos, all of which are better than the one you almost just bought.
