TRY BEFORE YOU BUY
The Windband Instrument Hire Scheme has been established for over 20 years. The idea of hiring before you commit yourself to a purchase is one that most parents see as a good idea. If you decide to buy, we deduct the initial hire charge from the purchase price of your instrument, so you have nothing to lose by hiring first.
Simply come into the shop with a form of ID with your address on it, such as a driving licence or utility bill, together with a credit or debit card with an expiry date after the end of the hire.
CHOOSING THE BEST FOR YOU
Each year we look at all the instruments available and choose our hire instruments for their value for money and suitability. Our instruments will not be the cheapest available but they will be the most cost effective in the long term. The hire instrument is usually new but we will hire second hand if you would prefer, subject to availability.
CARING FOR YOUR INSTRUMENTS
Students and parents coming into the shop will be shown how to assemble and care for their instrument. Whilst you are responsible for insuring your hire instrument, most household policies cover this at no extra cost. However, please check the instrument is covered including accidental damage and away from the home. The value of each instrument is clearly shown on your hire agreement
HIRE CHARGE (for a three month period)
|Trumpets, Cornets or Trombones
Other instruments are available on request, please ask for details.
BUY AFTER YOU TRY
You may, of course, simply return the instrument, in good condition, promptly at the end of the hire period but should you choose to purchase we always deduct your initial hire from the purchase price.
You can purchase an instrument in one of three ways ...
* Via an LEA Scheme
This allows pupils of LEA Schools, who fulfil the criteria, to purchase their instruments without the VAT. We need written authority from your school or Music Service to do this.
* Via Cash, Cheque, Credit Card or Paypal
We accept all major credit and debit cards in the shop, over the telephone or through our secure website.
* Via 12 months Interest Free Credit
On purchases over £350. Subject to Status. At least 10% deposit is required which is usually your initial hire. Further details available.
