Instrument Repair Payment Policy
Instrument Repair Payment Policy (for instruments belonging to someone not present in the store)
We want to accommodate schools and individuals that need to have instruments dropped off by someone other than the original owner. However, to streamline the payment process we require that the original owner or authorized school representative do one of the following:
• Provide a note in the case approving that the repair work can be billed to the owner or school. Please provide full contact information with this option.
• The owner/school provides repair authorization prior to the instrument being dropped off. This can be done in the form of an email or phone call.
We are happy to perform the requested repair work, but all repairs need to be paid for or given an invoice authorization (PO) before the instrument leaves the shop.
We understand that, as with most policies, there will be exceptions to the rules. If you have further questions or concerns, please contact the repair shop or an instrument specialist. 612-331-4717
