Monthly rental contracts automatically renew each month, provided the payment is made on time. The only time that a new contract will be needed is if you switch to a different rental plan.
How do I end a rental contract?
Your rental contract ends when you return the instrument to us. All past rent you have paid is lost when you end a rental contract and can no longer be applied to an instrument in the future.
Can I leave the instrument at school?
No. Instruments should not be left at school unless you have arranged a pick up by submitting a rental return request. If you have not submitted a rental return request, it is your responsibility to return the instrument to West Bend Music Academy if you wish to end your rental contract.
