Return and exchange

Last Updated: 06/05/2018


Returning a rental instrument

When you unpack the product, please keep in mind that it needs to be returned in the same condition as you received it. Please make sure that you keep all original packaging and accessories that come with the instrument, which may include (but not limited to) the case, bubble foam, screwdriver, nails, and the paper box the instrument comes in. When you return the instrument, it needs to be in its original condition and show no signs of damage beyond normal wear and tear.

For large size or heavy instruments such as digital pianos and acoustic drums, you need to disassemble them before putting the instrument back into the boxes. Because of this, we suggest that you keep the instruction book. If you lose the book or need any assistance, our online customer support can assist you.

If you’re on the monthly plan, you may return the instrument at any time. Please note that you must request to end your rental at least 20 days before the start of your next billing cycle, in order to avoid auto-renewal for the following month. Your payment will discontinue after the current cycle ends. You will need to cover for the return shipping fee. You will not need to pay for any handling charge. The 3-month minimum policy apply to all orders. You can still return it within 3 months’ time but you will be charged for all 3 months.

If you’re on the yearly plan and you’re not satisfied with the product upon receiving it because of personal preference, you still can return it to us within 30 days from the shipping date. However, we will deduct a month’s rental fee (on the monthly plan) and the shipping fee from your refund. You will also have to cover for the return shipping fee. If you believe you've received a defective product, contact our customer service immediately. After our examination, if we decide that the the piece is flawed, we will ship a new piece to you and we will cover all shipping costs within the U.S. For other regular rental returns, please see the return process below.


How to make a return towards the end of the lease?

For customers on the yearly plan, if you decide to return the instrument instead of buying it towards the end of the lease, please first call our customer service, or email us at, or chat with our representatives online. From there, we will help you through the return process. Returned items must be in its original condition and show no signs of damage beyond normal wear and tear. If you return a product that is damaged beyond normal wear and tear, then you will be responsible for the repair or replacement price of the product. This is determined in our discretion, price of repair or replacement can go as high as, but no more than the retail price of the product.


Can I return the instrument before the term ends?

If you’re on the yearly rental plan, you could choose to return the instrument at any time. However, we will consider this as a contract termination and you will not be refunded. If you’re on the monthly rental plan, you will not be billed for the next payment period, as long as you contact us at least 20 days before the next payment period starts.


Here are a few very important notes for your return:

  1. Please make sure that you return the instrument on time. The return date is the business day after your rental terminates, unless otherwise specified. You’ll need to ship it by 12pm of the return date. You can also choose to ship it to us earlier than the return date. We will use the tracking label for reference.

  2. While preparing the return, please re-package all products securely to ensure safe transit.

    1. All products must be returned in the original package or comparable packaging to that of the original.

    2. All products must be cleaned before re-packaging.

    4. String instruments require packaging under the tailpiece and around bridge. Tops of instruments must be facing upwards.

    5. Bridges on cells and basses must be put down and safely packaged.
