I would highly recommend Nick and North West Piano Centre. We recently bought a second hand Yamaha UX3 and we could not be happier. The piano is stunning and sounds wonderful. Nick is extremely knowledgable, very friendly and not at all pushy. There is a family feel to the company and Nick will do his upmost to help you choose a piano that is right for you. The installation, which was not straightforward, was handled professionally and efficiently. Very satisfied customer.

Thankyou for our recent purchase – Kemble Oxford Piano

We would like to thank Nick and North West pianos for the quality service we received during our recent purchase.

Throughout, Nick demonstrated much patience with us as the piano was a surprise gift for our daughter so we were needing some guidance being a little out of our depth.

Nick was freely giving of his time and knowledge, respectful of our budgets in introducing all options available and at no time whatsoever made any attempt to pressure us even though we took up much time in the showroom. Our two visits were met with the same gentle ambience and professionalism. We felt instinctively this was the business for us to buy from. We were additionally impressed with the post sales service which further reinforced our confidence in buying from North West pianos. The delivery and siting of the piano was professionally handled throughout and with upmost care for the instrument. Nothing has been too much trouble and it has felt evident Nick genuinely has his customer's interests foremost.

Nick's pre-owned piano stock is all of very good quality instruments presented in immaculate condition. It has been a pleasure to do business with North West pianos. We wholeheartedly recommend anyone wishing to purchase a piano to try here first. You will not be disappointed. My daughter is absolutely delighted with her instrument as are we.

Thank you very much indeed Nick for everything.

From Pauline and Ken Hadfield

Dear North West Piano Centre,

I just wanted to say how impressed we were when we visited your showroom. Having spent a lot of time searching the internet and visiting a number of piano shops, we found your shop to have a fantastic range and choice of pianos, all of which Nick was able to explain the differences from the starter pianos to the processional Yamaha and Kawai models. At no point did we feel pressured to make our decision, in fact quite the opposite which was really nice. I would highly recommend The North West Piano Centre to anyone looking to purchase a piano. The Yamaha U3 looks great. John is delighted with it and hasn't stopped playing (or smiling) since it arrived.

A huge thank you once again Our very best wishes

Helen and John Mortimer (Chester).

Dear Nick and Kelly

Thank you SO much!!!
As I expected, John was completely overwhelmed by the beautiful piano (Yamaha U1A) that you delivered last week. He had no idea and says "it's the best gift he has ever received".

I would like to thank you both very much for your excellent service and absolute discretion as I planned this wonderful surprise for him.

Your advice and expertise made it very easy for me as a complete amateur to choose this perfect 25th Wedding Anniversary gift.

Sincere apologies to Nick for pushing him out of the back door as John came in through the front door!!! (this comical scenario has caused much laughter this weekend).

Thank you both once again

Very best wishes to you

Wendy (and John) Morrison

Dear Nick,

I am delighted with a superb piano, a Yamaha model UX3 which I bought recently at the North West Piano Centre, Manchester. If you are looking for a good piano at an acceptable price I would recommend you go there. There will be no sales pressure whatsoever, but what you will experience will be a most courteous, friendly and helpful response to your enquiries and a genuine willingness to supply what you want if at all possible. If you do make a purchase you will not fail to be greatly impressed by the skill and expertise of Nick Fitzpatrick and his assistant when they deliver the instrument to your home. Their obvious ability to carry out the task (with accompanying good humour and witty comments) will put you at ease and leave you feeling that the whole transaction was absolutely first class in every way.

With all good wishes, particularly for Christmas and a prosperous New Year
Yours sincerely,

John E Kenyon

Delivery of Yamaha U3

I would just like to say what excellent service we have experienced with North West Pianos. The delivery was timely, thoroughly professional and excellent value for money. Nick has years of experience and it shows. What a lovely chap to do business with.

Many thanks

Dear Nick,

Just to let you know, we are just delighted with our piano! The children are as thrilled as we could have hoped. We are all (yes all!) going to start piano lessons in the new year!

Thank you for your kindness and decency. You were excellent in every way.

Happy Christmas and our very best wishes for 2013.

Dear Nick,

We are the proud new owners of a refurbished Yamaha UX5 piano which was efficiently and carefully delivered by Nick and Bernard last week. It is such a beautiful instrument and has really brought our home alive. Over a period of weeks, we made several visits to the North West Piano Centre. My daughter, Emma, was instantly attracted to the UX5 but because it was a substantial purchase we felt we needed time to satisfy ourselves that it was the right piano for us. Nick was extremely welcoming and helpful from the minute we stepped in the showroom but at the same time he gave Emma the time and space to explore the wide selection of pianos available. Without hesitation, he reserved the piano for us and just asked us to let him know when we had made a decision. In the meantime, we visited several other piano retailers but could find nothing to compare. We asked Nick if he would mind if our piano tuner took a look at the piano to give us an independent view – Nick was more than happy to accommodate this. Our piano tuner spent a very pleasant afternoon looking at various pianos. He said he was very impressed with how they were setting up their instruments and would not hesitate to recommend them. He also confirmed that the UX5 was a very fine piano! So, after several weeks, we made a decision. At no point in the process did Nick chase us or push us to make a decision and he would only accept payment once the piano was safely delivered to our home and we confirmed that we were happy with it. Nick and Bernard were a pleasure to deal with and could not have done more to ensure that we were happy with our purchase. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

Dear Nick,

Just wanted to say a massive thank you again for everything you have done to help us with the purchase and delivery of our first piano. We are 100% delighted with it, and all the advice and expertise you provided was very much appreciated. Simon has been this morning to do the first tuning, and also went the extra mile in explaining the history of the manufacturer etc, at my request!
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone, and will definitely be back if the time comes when we are in a position to upgrade!
Thanks again
Best wishes

Dear Nick,

Thanks so much for the removal this morning. I was in awe of your patience and teamwork with what was an almost impossible move. I am so pleased to have my piano at home again. I was really missing it, even though it was just a few days.

All best wishes,


Dear Nick,

I just wanted to write to express my gratitude for the service I received when buying a piano from you recently.
I appreciate the extra effort you and your movers went to to accommodate my wishes for a U3. It is greatly appreciated by me and my students.

Best wishes
