I want to know which year it was made? How much does it worth if it is in good condition. It was tuned 4 years ago.
Thanks.

Rather demanding, aren't you?

Probably worth less than it costs to move it.

Welcome to the Piano World forums…

Not sure about the model or age, but if the piano is in good condition, it may be a good starter piano. The move may cost around $150-$200 or more and a good tuning about $100. Still, it may be worth it. If you can get a few friends together and move it yourself, you’d be ahead to some extent, but pianos are heavy, even small ones.

How do you like the piano? Does it appeal to you in terms of tone, touch and appearance? If so, that is what matters.

Good luck, and keep us informed on your decision.

...Depending on locality. In our area the move might well run $250 to $350 (assuming no stairs or other difficulties) and the tuning another $150 to $200 (after 4 years it will probably be a pitch raise) and that assumes there is nothing to adjust or fix.
