What maintenance is provided?

Our Maintenance covers mechanical issues relating to the instrument that are not caused by damage or misuse. Should damage occur beyond $70.00, the customer will be liable to pay for damages and or replacement parts if needed.

“Renters” may be offered a “Loaner” instrument, pending availability,  while the original instrument is being repaired. The “Renter" then agrees to take any and all liability while using the “Loaner” instrument.

Should damage exceed more than half the instruments listed value on the contract, Davids’ Broken Note reserves the right to charge the “Renter" for the full price of the instrument. The “Renter" would then own the instrument and the contract would be considered fulfilled. The monthly maintenance fees are not applicable towards the purchase or fulfillment of Davids’ Broken Note’s  Rent-To-Own contract. 
It is understood that “Renters” who do not accept to have Davids’ Broken Note’s  Maintenance, will pay for any and all issues at current shop pricing. This applies to active Rent-To-Own contracts as well as Returned instruments.
