This looks like a scam:

Hello ,

Thanks for the mail, I really appreciate your prompt reply and i'm glad you are selling to me... First,I'm okay with the selling cost, secondly i don't want you to bother about the shipping process,I have a shipping company that handles my shipments,All you need do is
to keep the Upright Pianos in a safe and good condition.

I will instruct my staff associate to issue out a cheque for the payment and shipping to you, When you get the payment you are to deduct your £250 for the Upright Pianos and send the remaining funds to my shipper via Western Union or Money Gram to enable him come down to your location for the pickup. I bought some other mechandise too and my shipper will be picking them up also,so they will need the remaining funds to enable them come for the pickup.

It takes 3-5 working days to clear a cheque, so cheque must clear before pickup. Notify me immediately when you get the funds so i will email you with my shipper's information who will be coming for the pickup at your location. "I HOPE I CAN TRUST YOU WITH MY FUNDS"?I'm sure you can await the payment in the mail, It will be sent to the Information as requested below you will provide for me:
Full name...
Residential address...
Phone number:
Cell Phone:........
Home Phone:............
Can you remove it from the posting and consider it sold to me? I will be happy if you can do that today ok..I will be looking forward
to read from you.

Yes it is still available. I have reduced the price to £250 hoping for a
quick sale.
I am in South Manchester so if you would like to see it, please let me know.
