Rental Policies

Our minimum rental period for all rental instruments is one week. Renters have the option of continuing to rent on a weekly or monthly basis, depending on availability.  After the initial rental period is completed, rental payments will be charged to the renter's credit card on a weekly or monthly basis.

A valid credit card or debit card is required to book a rental.

Please note that the instrument renter is responsible for keeping the instrument in good condition while it is in their possession.  This includes swabbing the instrument after each use and keeping its outer surfaces clean, protecting it from unnecessary exposure to the elements, and immediately reporting to us any problems with it.  If the instrument incurs damage during the rental period, a repair fee will be assessed upon its return.  Accessories, such as swabs and cork grease, are not included with our rental instruments; however, we offer a discount for items that will help in caring for the instrument properly.

Rental instruments are part of a dedicated rental fleet.  Please note that we do not offer a rent-to-own option.
