Piano Rentals

Grand pianoPianoForte Chicago is delighted to offer pianos for rent to its customers.

At PianoForte, a piano rental goes beyond simply being able to use a piano for a period of time. Rental payments are considered an advance towards the purchase of the piano you are renting or any other piano in PianoForte’s showroom. It allows you to decide which piano will suit you best to own for the long term.

Our piano rental program is designed to help you find the best piano to suit your needs before you commit yourself to a larger investment. We offer pianos for rent with a minimum 6 month rental period and the same offer qualifies as a rent-to-own program if you decide to purchase an instrument. In this case, we are offering a 12-month interest free credit towards the purchase price.

Rental Responsibilities

Under the rental program you are responsible for paying the piano moving and a deposit, as well as for maintaining the instrument at regular intervals. Tunings twice a year are not only required but add to the pleasure and satisfaction of playing the instrument. Please ask for the Rental Agreement in full for more details.

Alternative to Renting

An alternative to renting is to purchase a piano with financing. PianoForte can facilitate this by applying for credit jointly with the customer to Allegro Acceptance, a company specialized in piano financing. Financing is a viable option because monthly payments are usually less than under the regular piano rental agreement.
