Acoustic Piano Warranties
Applicable to brand new pianos
Your piano is covered by the Bonners Acoustic Piano Warranty for the period shown on your sales receipt, from the date of delivery.
When You Receive Your Acoustic Piano From Bonners
1) Check You Are Happy With The Condition of The Cabinet.
Once signed for in good condition, we cannot accept claims for any scratches or imperfections you may find at a later date after the piano has been delivered.
2) Be Prepared For Unusual Behaviour!
An acoustic piano is a beautiful instrument, manufactured mainly from natural materials and resources. Due to their nature, acoustic pianos respond to changes in atmosphere, temperature, humidity and also transportation.
With the above in mind, your piano may develop overtones, squeaks, buzzes etc that you did not notice when the instrument was first delivered. This is your piano getting used to its new environment and may need a little adjustment after it has settled into its new home.
3) Make Us Aware Of Any Issues You Have
We want you to be happy with your new piano, and therefore ask that you make a list of any unusual noises, squeaks or behaviour that you are concerned about. This list will need to be sent in writing to Bonners by emailing email@example.com
Once agreed by Bonners, these issues will be attended to when our piano tuner/technician visits to give the piano its first in-home tuning (see below).
4) The First Complimentary Service Call To Tune / Adjust Your Piano
The first piano tuning/adjustment of your new piano must be carried out by a Bonners representative or a person elected by Bonners Ltd to attend to your new piano. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the first tuning & adjustment visit will be carried out a minimum of 4 weeks after the piano has been placed in situ, but no later than 12 weeks after the date of delivery. Complimentary first visits are forfeited if not arranged within 12 weeks of delivery of the instrument.
To book your first tuning/service please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01323 639335. Please have your receipt/invoice number and piano delivery date available.
During this visit, the tuner/technician will attend to the items you stated in the list you provided to Bonners, and also tune the piano to concert pitch.
5) Further Tunings & Maintenance Visits
With the exception of faults occurring to defects of manufacturing or workmanship, further tunings, regulation and maintenance visits within the warranty period are not covered by this acoustic piano warranty. Voicing and personalisation of the tone are not covered by this warranty.
6) Call-Out Charges & Fees
Bonners charges a callout fee for investigation of manufacturing or workmanship related faults. See our website for the present applicable charges. If the reported fault is repairable under warranty i.e. replacement parts are required, the fee charged is refundable in full. If the fault is not due to manufacturing or workmanship related issues, then the fee will not be refunded and additional charges may apply for routine adjustment, servicing or regulation of your instrument.
Further Information about Your Acoustic Piano Warranty
This warranty is non-transferrable. If you sell or give the instrument to a new owner, the piano is no longer covered by Bonners Acoustic Piano Warranty.

Bonners warrants your piano from the date of delivery to be free from defects of manufacturing or workmanship for the period of warranty shown on your sales receipt. This warranty does not apply to routine maintenance, tuning, regulation, voicing and normal wear-and-tear.
Furthermore, this warranty does not apply if any of the following have occurred:
