Common Questions

How long can I rent?

There is no maximum rental period. However, the contract is for a minimum of 3 months with an ex-rental instrument or 6 months with a new instrument.

How are further payments made?

Monthly by standing order.

Can I change my rental instrument, for example from a ¼ to a ½ violin outfit?

Yes. Simply let us know what you want to change to, return the instrument to us and we will send you the replacement (an extra carriage charge will apply). Assuming the replacement instrument has the same monthly rental charge, it will not be necessary to make any changes to the Standing Order.

Can I purchase the instrument?

Yes. A discount may be given if an instrument is bought at a later date. Please see our Terms and Conditions for more details

What do I do if I rented an instrument from your Kew Gardens shop?

If you wish to return the instrument or need it repaired please visit either of our shops (Fulham or Esher). For any other queries please contact our rental department on 01372 466195 or email rentals@abcmusic.co.uk

Is the instrument insured?

No, instrument is not insured by us so you are responsible for any loss or damage.

What happens if the instrument needs repairing?

We will service the instrument free of charge except where it has been damaged. You are responsible for any costs incurred in returning the instrument to us for service or repair. All repairs must be carried out by us.

What happens if I wish to cancel the rental agreement?

In order to terminate the rental agreement, simply return the instrument to us with a copy of your rental agreement and any accessories (excluding reeds where applicable). Assuming there are no problems with the instrument, you have rented for a minimum of 3 months, and your rental payments are up to date, we will then refund your deposit onto the credit or debit card you used to make your original payment.

I'm interested in renting several instruments for my school class, is this possible?

Yes. You can now rent a quantity of the same instrument on line, just enter the required quantity on the instrument detail page, or you can add additional instruments of a different kind by clicking ‘Add More Instruments’ at the ‘Rental Instrument Confirmation’ page.
Please note that there may be an additional surcharge for shipping multiples of larger instruments. Please contact us on 01372 466195 with any questions you have.

Will I eventually own the instrument I am renting?

No. The contract you have with us is a rental agreement NOT a purchase agreement. A discount may be given if an instrument is bought at a later date. Please see our Terms and Conditions for more details.
