Who do we work for?
Initially we are commissioned by a church or other organisation who wish to purchase or dispose of an organ and we act as a ‘dating’ agency of sorts, enabling the satisfactory placing of an instrument in a new home. We are offered about three organs a week and consequently we do not take every organ onto our books, however, we will endeavour to help if we can.
