"I have good reason to recommend Shackleford Pianos to friends in the future who approach me about seeking a good instrument, good advice and excellent service.


Shackleford Pianos gave me a very fair price for my grand piano that I was regrettably having to sell. They made the transaction a very smooth and stress-free operation.

Their removal team was first rate and kept in touch with me about their schedule and plans to avoid any inconvenience to me.

They parked the van sensibly and thoughtfully outside and worked out the best route to take the piano out with minimum fuss. There were no "incidents" so this proves they really did know what they were doing & I was highly impressed. Also the removal operation was swift, efficient and tremendous care was taken to avoid the risk of damage to the Piano or any flooring, steps or doorways.

So Shackleford Pianos get ***** Five Stars from this customer."

"I just wanted to thank you for such an amazing service. You were so helpful and efficient and I am so happy to have my Granny's piano back home!"

With very best wishes,



Piano successfully delivered to Hunstanton on Saturday morning. Many thanks for sorting everything out for me including refixing the folding top to the piano carcass.

I look forward to hearing from you in 4 to 6 weeks time to arrange for the tuning to be carried out.

Please pass on my thanks to Jon and his colleague for all their eforts in looking after us. A great service from all at Shackleford Pianos and much appreciated."

"Hi Scott,

Just a quick note to say thank you to you and your team in delivering my pianola and table. You were professional and kept me informed throughout the process.

You have a dedicated team of guys and please thank the guys who delivered the piano. I think they had along day. I've paid by BACS. It's gone through from my end."

Thanks again,



"Hi, Thank you very much for your service today. Very professional and reliable I will 100% recommend your company."



"Hi Scott, just wanted to say thanks for the piano move last week. It looks fab in its new spot and is much better situated for Katy to play when we are in different rooms in the house.

Sorry it's a bit of a late thanks but I get sidetracked! Anyway thanks and regards."


"The move went brilliantly. The piano was handled really carefully. Thanks so much for the fast and speedy service."

"Hi, I just wanted to drop you a quick email to praise the two guys that delivered a Feurich silent piano to me this morning in Brighton. They were polite, professional and considerate of both the piano and our home. The service was faultless and I'd have no hesitation in recommending you to others."

Kind Regards,


"Well the beautiful Feurich 133 Concert is happily installed in the house we thought was too small for it(!), looking stunning and sounding even better. Alex hasn't stopped playing it since the day she came home and found it, and we are so delighted that it has completely fulfilled our hopes of re-inspiring her playing. She plays for hours and hours and is putting so much more flair and feeling into her playing compared to using the old digital piano.  I can't believe the change.


Thank you so much for an experience filled with excitement and joy - Watching it make its way over the cobbles of our drive and in through a doorway only 2" wider than the piano! The delivery guys were lovely and did a fine job; hopefully one day we will see them again when it is taken to a larger room more deserving of its grandeur."

"I just wanted to pass on our thanks and appreciation for the excellent service provided by your company, and especially by the two guys who came today to deliver my piano (Buxworth, High Peak) 


They provided an efficient, friendly, professional service and took great care of my Dad's piano which he has passed on to me. They made the transfer look effortless.


Please pass on our thanks to the movers and we will certainly recommend your company in the future."


Best wishes

"Hi there,

Just wanted to email to say how happy we are with the piano delivered this morning. It is a really great little piano and the two delivery men were fantastic, so helpful and friendly despite their early start this morning! The entire process from order to delivery has been exceptional which is really rare these days.

I would strongly recommend your company."





I just wanted to thank you very much for the delivery of our piano. I've been really pleased with your whole service from start to finish - the men who delivered the piano were really helpful too, so thank you."

Just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you to the guys that collected the piano this morning - they were both brilliant.  They were polite and handled it with great care and were very respectful regards the property. Please pass my comments on to the director. A pleasure to deal with you."

Many thanks again,


"Just a quick note to say how impressed I was with the gentlemen who picked up the piano yesterday. They were professional and courteous and a credit to your company."

Piano arrived and I love it, it both looks and sounds beautiful. I am so pleased. Thank you also to your delivery guys, an excellent service."

Kind Regards,



"Just a quick note to say how well the piano sounded in the concert, and how easy and pleasant everyone was that delivered, tuned, and collected the piano.

Andy Hodkinson

"Thanks for the delivery today. Your delivery men were very helpful and professional."


"Good Morning Scott,

Very many thanks for the wonderful work you have carried out on our piano. We hardly recognised it! It sounds lovely too, even though Bernard and I don't play. Our daughter, for whom it has been restored will be here at weekend so will be able to put it through it's paces.

Thank you once again for such a superb job and we apologise for our ancient payment system, but we don't trust the internet fully yet, so make no payments on it."

Yours sincerely,


Lilian Ogden

"Just letting you know how pleased I am with the service your piano removal men gave. They were polite on time and very quick.

All along since contacting you I have had wonderful service. I can't fault your service, it has been very good value for money as well. I would highly recommend your company."

Thank you,

Mary Goodwin

"I am delighted with my piano delivered yesterday. The gentlemen were so lovely, polite and smooth with the delivery. Everything was done so courteously and professional.

Many thanks,"


"Dear Aaron,

I'm writing to thank you and your team for a wonderful piece of work done on this piano. We are thrilled with the result. It looks absolutely superb, feels so responsive to play, and is recovering it's glorious sound that I so well remember from a child, and I know your technician will be ironing out any remaining discrepancies once it settles down here.

So, this piano now has a future! It already brings forth sweet sounds even from 50-year-lapsed (arthritic) fingers and provides very much joy. We're hoping its sheer quality will in due course help to foster a love of piano playing in some bright young person...

So again, very many thanks to you and your team, and we look forward to seeing one of them again sometime in May."

Best Wishes,

Valery & David Dean

"I would just like to thank you for the recent job that you did for me at Hoyland Barnsley. I had a piano moved from one room to another via some very tight angles and doors. The lads that came did a fantastic job taking great care with home and piano.

Would not hesitate to use them again."

Best Regards,

Bruce Kay

"Just had a very good experience with Expert Piano Removals. They quoted a reasonable price and from the outset Scott Leigh was professional, efficient & courteous and accommodating. The team negotiated the stairs with 3 pianos at both venues without fuss and were within their given timeline for pick up and delivery. I would happily recommend their service for anyone who want to have their pianos taken care of."

T Murray

"Dear Aaron,

Thank you very much, to you and your team. I absolutely love the piano, I just can't stop playing it."

All the best,


"Dear Scott,

I just wanted to give you some formal feedback on our piano removal last week as we were very pleased with the whole service. Thank You.

From my initial website search and a phone call enquiry to you, everything went smoothly. It was great you were able to indicate when you could collect and deliver the pianoeven when you first quoted me, and that the team that actually moved the piano to us rang ahead as promised to confirm their planned arrival time.

John and his colleague were pleasant, helpful and efficient when they collected and delivered the piano, and it seemed to have been carefully packed and handled as it reached us safely!

I'm so glad I entrusted the piano, which is of great sentimental value, to your firm - an excellent service, thank you, and all organised very quickly and effectively. We will definitely use you again and would recommend you to friends."

Ann B

"Hi Scott,

What a fantastic service we've received thank you so much!

One of your chaps mentioned you offer a restoration service too? Could you give me a quote please."



"Hi Scott,


I just wanted to drop you a line to say how pleased we were with your company and offer our heartfelt thanks. Both Catherine and Melissa passed on how professional your team were. I contacted a lot of other companies about the removal and most didn't want the job because of the stairs! We were so impressed that you took it on without question. Your quote and terms were so reasonable and all your responses so prompt." 

Laura Jones


"From start to finish our customer experience with your company was excellent and we couldn’t recommend you highly enough! We were quite daunted by the prospect of moving our new piano (which was a long-awaited present for our daughter) without it being damaged in any way, but EPR did it seamlessly and for a reasonable price. Thank you."

Sam Attwell

"Just wanted to thank you for your fantastic service as ever.

The transport team were efficient and professional.

The whole process from order to delivery was amazing.

I am delighted with my new Bluthner piano. It plays beautifully.

I have used your services so many times and it is is always exceptional.

I could not recommend shacklefords more highly.

Last year you even moved by other Bluthner baby grand piano in the snow!"

Astrid Vermeulen

"I was very happy with the service and your team were very polite and considerate"
