Sadly the lovely old piano is not what people want anymore, they all use electric ones these days, so it will probably go to the dump 😢
If it is in good working order, someone will probably take it and hopefully remove it for you. I wouldn't fancy shifting a piano - those old enough will know how much trouble Bernard Cribbins had with one, and even further back, a piano gave Laurel & Hardy plenty of grief :D

Electronic pianos are often preferred because of the amount of available space and/or its location. I prefer the sound and feel of an acoustic piano but I would not be able to get one into my man cave. I rarely use a piano sound on its own. In a mix, with other instruments, it is very difficult to tell that I am using very high quality sampled instruments rather than the real thing. I'd drive my wife nuts practicing and playing the same piece over and over again - you cannot plug headphones into an acoustic ;)

Yeah i think i will have to get a digital piano due to lack of space in my flat and also a very narrow stairwell 😂 not to mention the noise but i still go back to my parents house to play my acoustic. Cant beat it.

Next daft question, birdie when it arrives will be travelling with me on a semi regular basis if it can cope. Any recommendations for travel cages as he/she will need to travel (I drive a van if it makes a difference) and live in it for up to a week. Or is there a different part of the forum I should ask this question?

I have a rainforest travel cage but I wouldn't have any of mine stay in it for an extended period of time.

You may be able to have somewhere like Rosemead aviaries make you a collapsible cage for travelling? I'm sure they've just made some aviaries that are foldable. Plus they will make it to your specifications.
