How to Return Your Instrument

School Returns

To return your instrument rental to the school, you must request a Return Authorization. A return authorization includes a unique Return Authorization Number and important instructions that help ensure the instrument is returned to us and your account is updated.

Use the form below to request your Return Authorization.

Store Returns

Instruments may be returned directly to either of our locations:

• New Providence – 1790 Springfield Ave
• Scotch Plains – 413 Park Ave

NOTE: Store returns DO NOT require a Return Authorization.

Instrument Rental Returns Policy

• There are no refunds for instrument rentals that are returned early within the trial rental period.
• Instrument rentals that are on the monthly plan can be returned at any time with no obligation to continue.
• An instrument on a trial plan that is returned after its due date will incur a monthly fee(s) for the time you have the instrument. Rental payments are not contingent upon practice, lesson, or school schedules.
• All instruments returned to school must be marked with a Return Authorization number obtained from Elefante Music. If a Return Authorization number is not obtained, the monthly rental fee will be charged until the instrument is returned to Elefante Music.
