MAINTENANCE PLAN: covers nearly any repair needed on the instrument… the dog chewing it, the car running over it, spills, breaks, mishaps...not covered are extreme neglect or purposeful damage, nor cosmetic repairs on demand. The Maintenance Plan is mandatory because: 1. The instrument remains the property of Golden Music Center until the final payment is made, and we have a very strong interest to be sure that it is playing perfectly; that we are repairing it; and all that needs to be done for it gets done properly. 2. This instrument represents our store in all the settings it is used in and we want it working perfectly! 3. We want your student to have a working instrument at all times.
RETURNING: Simply bring your instrument to the store, of if you want pickup, phone or email us; there are no further charges, pending cooperation for arrangement of a mutually joint time to pick-up. You stand by until we have a delivery in your area, which we will phone you the day before to arrange.
LOANERS: are available when repair or maintenance is necessary. Loaners are not guaranteed however. Sometimes we are out of an instrument category, if so we will process the repair as fast as possible.
STRINGS: for violin, viola, cello and bass are covered no charge for first two months.
BOWS: Rehairs on student instruments are covered (we usually just replace the bow).
EXPENDABLES: Reeds, rosin, cork grease, slide grease are things that come with the instrument but are not replaced if used up, lost or broken. Cases and bags are covered.
THEFT OR LOSS: If there is a lost or stolen instrument, we cover up to $250 of the amount owed to us for insurance deductible. The customer is responsible for the rest of the balance. A police report is required.
PURCHASE: Equity is calculated from the rental fee excluding tax and maintenance plan. Equity can only be used for the same person that started renting. It may not be switched to anyone else. You may purchase your instrument for 30% off the remaining balance.
RENTAL INSTRUMENT CATEGORY DEFINED: Rental instruments include only: flute, clarinet, alto sax, trumpet, trombone, baritone, French horn, oboe, combo kit, percussion/bell kit, snare drum, violin, viola, cello, and string bass. Please note, Guitars, drums sets, keyboards or any other items are not available for rent or to trade credit to.
INSTRUMENT AVAILABILITY: Not guaranteed. Sometimes an item is out of stock.
RETURNING: You can return and cancel the contract at any time. Within five days after your due date, your payment (if made) will be refunded. Any unpaid balance and fees remain due of course.
LOSS OF RENTAL CREDIT WHEN RETURNED: If the instrument is returned, the credit accumulated is dissolved.
TRADING: The credit is not transferable to any other store products, not saved on our books and not transferable to any other person. The same student that started the contract may switch to any other band or orchestra instrument in the category.
LOSS OF RENTAL CREDIT WHEN TRADING: If you go to a lower purchase priced instrument, only a proportion of credit is granted equal to the lower instrument’s purchase price divided by the high instruments price as a percentage is then multiplied by the credit. If changing to an equal or more expensive instrument, all credit (less tax and maintenance) is applied.
THE TRADING AND CREDIT OPTIONS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE FOR THE ORIGINAL STUDENT WHO RENTED – YOU MAY NOT TRANSFER CREDIT TO ANY OTHER PERSON NOR TO ANY PRODUCT OUTSIDE OUR RENT-TO-OWN CATEGORY. IF THE ORIGINAL STUDENT IS NOT USING THE INSTRUMENT, ALL RENTAL PERKS AND OPTIONS ARE CANCELED.
