Once you have an idea of the instrument you would like to hire, either call us to discuss your requirements or print off and complete one of our on-line forms. Once we have the form, we will process the payment and contact you to arrange a suitable delivery day and address. We set up an automated schedule for the monthly payments so you don’t have to do anything else. All you have to do is unpack and start enjoying your instrument!
You are only committing to 3 months rental which is 3 x £7 = £21 for most instruments.
The first payment includes a deposit which is refundable depending on condition, the first month’s rental, and the carriage and packing charge (normally £9 for student instruments).
For most instruments, the cost would be:
Our hire packages are designed to give you flexibility and choice of instruments. We want you to find the one that suits your requirements so offer mid-term upgrade options if you want to try another instrument during the hire period. Just let us know how you are getting on and what you would like to try to arrange it.
We have over 100 instruments available for hire starting from student instruments for £7 to pro instruments.
The minimum period of hire is just 3 months; you may then either return the instrument or continue to hire it on a monthly basis. If you purchase the instrument, the deposit and the first 12 rental payments would count towards the price (even if you change to a different instrument ). We are the only firm in the UK that discounts ALL 12 months rental towards any instrument that you buy.
After 11 months of hire, we will send out a statement outlining what you have paid, and the balance remaining should you wish to purchase the instrument. We also offer several installment options to help you spread the cost over 3 to 12 months, detailed in the statement.
There is no obligation to buy the instrument at any time and you can send it back to us at any time during the rental period for a deposit refund (subject to condition).
At the end of the 12 month hire term you have the option to buy or upgrade to another instrument and use the rental you have already paid against any instrument of the same or higher price – maybe you want to swap from cornet to trombone or euphonium or even to a saxophone ( please see our sister firm www.uksaxhire.co.uk ). Again, just drop us a line to discuss your requirements.
Our instruments are all checked and play tested before despatch, so you can be sure your instrument will function exactly as it should.
We also offer the following accessories for hire for £1pm each. To order, just circle the accessory on the hire form and we will include it with your hire pack.
We also offer a free one hour lesson if you can travel to collect the instrument.
If you cannot travel to collect the instrument we can arrange home delivery via DPD couriers for £9, and we include a gift voucher for the lesson that you can use at any time during the 12 month hire term.
Please feel free to call us if you wish to discuss the options further or to arrange a free lesson. If you are ready to proceed and require home delivery, please print, complete sign and return one of the attached rental agreements on this site, or if you like the look of one of the pro models, just drop us a line for information.
