Looking for a piano tuner in or near Athens, Georgia

Who's the best piano technician in or around Athens to service my Yamaha G2 grand piano?

The piano is being moved and will need, at a minimum, to be tuned. Ideally I'd like somebody to evaluate the thing and see if any other maintenance is also necessary, although I think it's in pretty good condition and has had only one owner, so maybe not.

I've tried Google and found a number of options, but I have no good way to decide between them. Who's the most knowledgable, experienced, and reliable piano technician in my area that the hive mind can personally vouch for?

I think there is still a piano sales and tuning service located right in downtown. Its been there for decades and in Athens that means they are doing something right. Near Pulaski, I think its Chick.

Yeah, Chick was my first thought and if nobody chimes in with a personal anecdote they're probably the people I'll go with by default. I admit that I've never really been that impressed with their service or selection as a music store, but since they do specialize in pianos and until now I've always been there for non-piano stuff, I guess I shouldn't let that prejudice my decision.

Turns out that Chick doesn't do tuning and service themselves, but they were happy to give me their contact list of local technicians, which worked out great.
