Flexible & Practical
Our band instrument rental-purchase plan combines the flexibility of a rental plan with the financial good sense of a purchase plan. The rental program will provide your child with a quality instrument at a reasonable monthly rate. If you choose, you may exercise your option to buy the instrument.
How it works
The Instrument rental-purchase plan is essentially a lease agreement, valid for a maximum of 24 months. The minimum lease is 2 months.
At any time during the term of the rental-purchase agreement, you can cancel the lease with no penalty (Subject to the minimum 2 months' rental fee) simply by returning the instrument to one of our stores in Terrace or in Prince George..
Option to buy
As part of the rental-purchase agreement you may at any time buy the instrument. There are real advantages to doing so. Consider this, when you decide to buy, all rental payments to date are subtracted from the rental-purchase price of the instrument.
Also, if you decide to buy within the first 6 months of the lease agreement, a further 20% discount will be applied against the outstanding balance. If you decide to purchase the instrument after 6 months but before one year we offer you a 10% discount.
Once you have made the initial 2 months rental payment, you will be billed every 2 months until the lease expires. At the end of the 24 month lease agreement, you may either rewrite a new lease agreement or buy the instrument. For your convenience, all major credit cards and automatic bank debit services are available.
Rather than lease through our rental-purchase plan, you may choose to buy the instrument outright. There are substantial savings available to you by doing so. Prices are available on request.
Guaranteed Buy-Back Plan
If your child decides to discontinue music studies after you have purchased an instrument on the “Outright Purchase Plan," Sight & Sound offers you the protection of the "Guaranteed Buy-Back Plan."
Here's how it works: Sight & Sound will buy the instrument back from you for the same price you paid - less what would normally have been the monthly rental fees had you rented the instrument. This offer is valid for a full 12 months beyond the date of sale.
Please note that the "Guaranteed Buy-Back Plan" only covers outright purchases - it does not extend to rental-purchase conversion.
