Rentals At Bridgepoint Music

You’ve decided to set up a rental or lease-to-own contract – congrats! Here are some important details:

  • We do not charge a deposit or maintenance fee – just the monthly payment, plus sales tax.
  • However, if the instrument is lost, stolen, or damaged beyond repair, you are responsible for the full replacement cost of the instrument (this price will be indicated on your contact).
  • Brand-new instruments that rent for more than $50/mo have a six-month minimum; all other instruments have no monthly commitment.
  • At any time, you are free to return the instrument and end the contract. Rental payments are not prorated.
  • We will take the first payment today, and subsequent payments will be collected via autopay, which we will set up with the contract.
  • Wear and tear maintenance is included under your contact; if you have any issues with the instrument, please bring it to us and not another shop. Any additional repair work not included under contract will be an additional cost incurred by the renter.

Considerations

  1. How long do you anticipate needing the instrument?
  2. Do you have any interest in eventually owning the instrument?
  3. Can you afford to pay for the full price of the instrument right now?

Rental

  • Smallest monthly expense, but potentially has the highest cost over time
  • Can switch to lease-to-own within first 12 months and carry over rent paid
  • Rentals of fractional-sized string instruments can be switched for a different size at any time

Purchase

  • Least expensive option over the long run, but has the highest up-front cost
  • If you purchase a brand-new instrument, we will buy it back within the first year for the price you paid, minus what you would have paid in rent

Lease-To-Own

  • Greater monthly expense than renting, but your monthly payments are used toward the eventual purchase of the instrument
  • Can switch to a rental contract at any time, but none of the equity built will be carried over
  • Lease-to-own contracts on fractional-sized string instruments can NOT be switched to a different size and have the equity carried over
  • 15% discount when you buy out your contract early
  • Rentals of fractional-sized string instruments can NOT be switched for a different size and carry over the equity – the contract is specific to the instrument
