I was thinking about trying a blind piano tuner, simply due to the idea that their tuning will sound better.
Has anyone found their tuning to be superior and are they normally able in removing the panels of the piano without help. I ask because the front of mine needs to be removed for tuning. The lid is connected to the whole front panel - it is too heavy for me to remove without risk of injury.

Slightly related- years ago in Asia, our tuner used to use an oscilloscope! I guess they didn't have small electronic tuners then

Piano-tuning used to be one of the occupation options for blind people in the past, not so sure it's that big a thing now.
Electronic is not necessarily better than aural. A person can make adjustments that work on your piano that an electronic tuner can't. My tuner charges £75 now (I've been using him for about 15 years) and generally tuning is good for about 6 months, unless we get weird weather.

Even our old (very old, battered, been in the family for decapdes) upright was pretty stable.
BG - has your tuner given you any indication why your piano goes out of tune so quickly?
