All prices include VAT and are subject to change without notice.
Instruments are subject to availability. Alternatives may be offered.
Delivery is available for larger instruments – please ask for a quote.
 

Period

The rental is for minimum period of 3 or 6 months (see below), then monthly until the instrument is returned.
 

Payment

Rental payments are monthly in advance and are paid by direct debit
 

Deposit

A returnable deposit equal to one month’s rental is payable at the start of the agreement. This is refunded when the instrument is returned in good condition (reasonable wear and tear is excepted).
 

Purchase Option

Should you wish to purchase the instrument you are hiring, you will be entitled to a discount equal to the hire fees paid during the minimum term, i.e. three or six times the monthly rental. If you are the first user of the instrument, this discount only applies to the instrument you have hired or one of greater value. If your instrument was not new at the commencement of the agreement, the hire fees may be set against the instrument you are renting (which will be reduced accordingly), a new instrument of the same type (subject to availability) or one  of greater value.
 

Option to Return

The hirer is responsible for returning the instrument to a branch of Brittens Music Direct when no longer required. In the event that this is before the end of the minimum term, the balance of the minimum rental fee is payable.
 

Insurance

Any instrument rented from us can be insured against loss or damage from as little as £1.50 per month. We strongly recommend this option as sometimes children can be heavy-handed and accidents can happen. A £25 excess applies.
