1.) Sales Taxes
There are 750 different sales tax districts in Kansas alone - to keep things simple, the sales taxes are included in the service fees.
2.) Travel Fees
I have tried many things when putting together a means to handle traveling, as I do travel extensively throughout Eastern Kansas. On January 1, 2022, travel fees will be as follows:
For services beyond 40 miles of Eudora, Kansas, a $1.00 per mile one-way fee will be charged for single appointments - if a second appointment is scheduled, the fee is divided; if third appointment is scheduled for the same day (and is within a reasonable distance) no travel fees will charged.
3.) Payment methods
For years, I have accepted only cash and checks; now Free State Pianoworks accepts debit and credit cards through Stripe.
I have been fully vaccinated and will wear a mask during the appointment; if the person who meets me is wearing a mask, that would be appreciated, but not expected. (Piano service work is generally a natural social distancing event, anyway.) If you have anyone about who is not feeling well the day before the appointment, don't hesitate to let me know; I will be happy to reschedule your appointment.
