In my opinion it is bad advice to say "you need a tuner" when the owner could just upload some photos and we can give a rough assessment based on its age, physical condition and whether it is straightstrung, overstrung, overdamped or underdamped. This forum is an a good position to be a great service to people. Telling people to hire a tuner to tell them that their piano is worth £0 is not a good service in my opinion.
Let's help people out. Let's share our knowledge and opinion.
If they really need a 100% accurate valuation and assessment then yes they should hire a technician but most folk aren't asking for a 100% accurate assessment, they just want a GENERAL assessment and a ROUGH valuation. We can give that very easily.
