Renting is often a great option for beginning players to get a feel of their instrument without the financial investment of purchasing. Additionally, as younger students grow, they will need larger instruments. We offer size exchange at any time for our customers. This is very convenient, as customers don't have to invest buying instruments for every size.
Please read our full rental agreement before ordering your instrument.
All of our instruments are personally set up by our employees, ensuring each instrument is up to our standard of excellence. In addition to the cost of setting up each instrument.
We rent our instruments on a quarterly basis and the rental fee is the same for all sizes. Here is a breakdown of our rates:
Rental payments are considered past due 5 days after the charge and incur a $20.00 late fee. Should the account become delinquent by two months (60 days), all rental equity is forfeited, and the full price of the instrument becomes due and collectible. If such delinquency should occur, the full price of the instrument will be billed the credit card listed filed. Accounts delinquent by 60 days may be submitted to a third party for collection resulting in an additional $100.00 collection fee.
100% of the first six months (6 months) of rental payments may be applied toward the purchase of a new instrument (in the same classification) from Mijares Violins. The purchase option must be initiated by the customer. Mijares Violins is not responsible for notifying renters when equity has reached the value of a rented instrument. Rental instruments are not for sale.

All customers are responsible for any damage, accidental or intentional, to the rental instruments. In the case of loss, theft, serious damage, or failure to return the instrument on demand, the renter must pay the full price of the instrument.
