Thursday, March 3rd, 2022 - Out of this World

*We finally have access to our Milton store and like so many other homes and businesses in the area, the damage is significant and we’ll be onsite from 1pm today for any media enquiries.

“While there’s been no shortage of flood damaged stores from Queensland and New South Wales in recent days, having finally gained access to our piano warehouse in Milton, the damage here really is mind boggling,:” said Australian Piano Warehouse National Operations Manager, Craig Maria.

Like most people and businesses, there’s always some hope that when you can return to your home or business, you will have somehow escaped the worst of it. But after days of only being able to view the site from afar, today the team gained access to the store and now the damage survey and clean up begins.

Craig said: “While we’ve seen some truly astonishing scenes of water levels and damage from around the state, there’s something particularly ironic and sad about seeing a room full of beautiful pianos completely destroyed. Even the pianos stored on raised pallets didn’t escape damage.”

The pianos in store range from small entry level digial pianos worth a few hundred dollars, right up to traditional upright and grand pianos worth thousands and thousands of dollars.
