Piano tuner recommendation? (GTA)

Does anyone know a good piano tech they'd like to recommend? I live in Richmond Hill and would like an experience tech to restore a 15 year-old piano that has not been serviced for a long time.

Any help is appreciated

Be forewarned that if it hasn't been tuned in a while, it may take multiple visits from a piano tuner to get it in good playing shape.

sorry I may have used the wrong term, to be precise the piano needs a pitch raise, plus some cleaning on the key bed / pedals area

Have you checked it with an electronic tuner?

It's great that it worked out well in your case, but I stand by my original statement -- pianos that haven't been tuned in a long time often need multiple visits from a technician to get into good playing shape. Especially in the OP's case, where the piano needs a pitch raise -- I would be very surprised if the technician could do that in one visit.
