I have, I put my piano on craigslist and a retail store from somewhere just a bit into SC came and bought it for a really good price. I can't remember the name, but he had a big showroom with lots of yamaha pianos. I bet with some google searches you can find him.

Best of luck. We had a very nice Baldwin piano in excellent condition. I ended up giving it to the people that bought our last house. The market for used pianos is really tough and a neighbor who gave piano lessons said we've be luck to get a couple hundred dollars for it (purchased new for $3,000) because of the cost of moving it, then tuning it. Most young kids get their lessons on electronic keyboards.

I had to pay 350$ for a piano store to take ours. An antique style piano but he said grand piano sales are through the floor and used pianos are a drag on capital for a store.

I agree it is difficult to sell a used piano. I ended up taking a tax right off and donating the piano for a few thousand dollars to a local charity which is much better return than I could do selling.

People dump nice pianos on classifieds for free daily. If it's some rare model you'll still have to hunt a buyer.
