We know how important the instrument rental process can be for beginning your musical journey. As musicians ourselves, many of us started playing on rental instruments at a young age. Our experience on both sides of the rental process, we’ve designed our Instrument Rent+ Program to provide many benefits you may not get from other rent-to-own plans.
From the moment you sign up for a rental, you should know what you are paying for; what value are you getting from both the instrument and the agreement? We pride ourselves in the integrity of our rental program. We don’t make false promises or dishonest claims regarding instrument quality, fees, or our rental process. We want everyone to have the best opportunity and experience learning to love music!Get Started
Students need freedom to try an instrument, or many instruments until they find the one they love! Parents need flexibility to choose when to purchase!
Students can exchange instruments as many times as they want until they find what suits them. There are no penalties for exchange.
Rent+ is a month to month rental that can stop anytime by returning the instrument to the store. *Instrument needs to be returned before the next billing date.
As you make rental payments, up to 18 months of credit can be accrued toward the purchase of a brand new student level instrument, or a performance, advanced, or professional level instrument.
There are several paths toward ownership. You choose what is right for your needs and budget!
If you already own a CIOMIT instrument, thank you for being a member of our family!!
As a member of the CIOMIT family, you can trade in your current instrument toward the purchase of a performance, advanced, or professional level instrument and receive a preferred customer gradient in!! Bring your instrument in and we can discuss your options!
For every month you rent with us, you are earning credit towards purchasing an instrument of your own! We know the instruments in our rental fleet are not forever instruments; they are beginner level instruments intended to give students an easier means of learning and an opportunity to discover which instrument best suits their love of music!
When you sign up for your rental, you will have a maintenance and protection charge that covers just about any accidental damage that happens to an instrument, as well as regular servicing and maintenance to keep the instrument in top playing condition! Instrument full cleanings and servicing normally start at $95, but this is all included and covered under this plan!
The beauty of renting is the lack of commitment and investment you have in one singular instrument. It gives students the ability to try an instrument out to see if it's the right one for them! We take that one step further and offer free instrument swaps with carry-over credit! Instrument swaps on the same or greater value level can transfer credit directly.
All of our rentals are on a month to month basis. There is no term commitment when you sign up! This means that you can return your rental at any time or keep it as long as you want! There is no extended day cancellation policy, and no cancellation fees. As soon as you return it, we stop the rental charges in our system!
No, we are sorry, but this is a very important option! Even in the best circumstances, accidents happen, and believe us when we say you don’t want to take the chance of needing to pay those expenses on your own!
Remember that this plan also covers normal maintenance that instruments need to keep them in tip top playing condition. It is so important to keep an instrument 100% responsive and easy to play for a beginning student!
Simply bring it to us!! We will fix it, or swap it for another instrument if necessary so the student doesn’t loose practice time! We know that after the long band season many high school band instruments need maintenance, we are open Monday-Friday 10:00am – 6:00pm.
We recommend you use the musical instrument maintenance kit you purchased when you rented the instrument! It contains items to clean and help maintain your instrument after each practice! Then, once a year we recommend you drop the instrument off for deep cleaning, routine maintenance and adjustment!
