My advice is to take your time and try to avoid free pianos. The search could take weeks, months or in my case, years but find something that has been loved and taken care of. Yamaha, Kawaii and Baldwin have some decent budget options (vintage); but look for blue putty inside (that means pins slip and you should avoid). Be weary and check for mice; urine and droppings mean it’s infested (sadly they love to destroy pianos). I would also avoid spinets.
Good luck.
