Piano Hire in London

At Markson Pianos, we are proud to be London’s leading piano hire company offering short and long-term piano rentals for Tv and Film, theatres, domestic and commercial events and more.

Long-term Piano Rental 

Long-term piano rentals are a great option in a number of cases, particularly for parents hoping to assist their young children with learning to play the piano. Long-term piano rentals start from just thirty pounds a month and can be a much more cost-effective way of bringing music into your home.

Hiring a piano for a longer period allows your child the time they need to practice and learn to love the instrument. Eventually, you may wish to purchase the piano being safe in the knowledge that it will be a fun and enriching investment for your child.

Short-term Piano Rental

Another popular piano rental option we offer is short-term piano rentals which typically last less than one month. We often provide grand and upright pianos for clients that may simply require it for a few weeks, days or even hours.

Short-term rentals are used for anything from parties and weddings to music videos and movie shoots. Whatever you need, we can provide a range of pianos on short notice to ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible.

Piano Event Hire

Our team are always busy throughout the year providing piano hires for a wide range of domestic and commercial events. From recitals and concerts to festival and music videos, our team are committed to finding the right piano for any event you may have. Over the years, we have provided piano event hires for The Royal Albert Hall, the Historic Royal Palaces and other prestigious venues.

Our team are highly trained and experienced in providing the right piano for your event and understands the unique challenges posed by event management. We will always endeavour to provide the best service possible with a stunning piano that is carefully transported, prepared and tuned to perfection in time for the performance.

Theatre and Prop Piano Hire

Our piano rental spans much farther than the standard grand or upright piano you’d find in our showroom, as we also offer theatre and prop pianos for hire! We regularly receive requests from production companies for film and video as well as theatres looking for prop pianos to hire. We have sourced everything from 19th-century square pianos to pianolas and dummy Grands! Our team loves eccentric and unusual requests and always does their best to find the perfect solution.

You may have even seen some of our prop pianos used in adverts, on tv shows and costume dramas and even in films such as ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘The Piano’, ‘Rocketman’ and ‘Room with a View’. To learn more, visit our Theatre and Prop Piano Hire page.

Hire Fee Calculatons

The grid below shows the basic calculations for hiring different types of pianos. The transport charges for delivery and collection (charged in advance together) have been calculated for a ground floor delivery within the M25 radius. Where stairs are involved these are charged at an additional £50.00. Deliveries outside of the M25 bear additional mileage charges which are calculated at the time of hiring.
The prices shown are for guideline purposes, and will vary according to the instrument you select.
These calculations are based on hiring a Secondhand Piano where 6 month's hire fees are payable together with the total transport charges in advance.
