Strijkinstrumentenshop.nl retains the right to allocate an appropriate deposit for the Instrument, even in case this is different from what is published on the website of Strijkinstrumentenshop.nl. Strijkinstrumentenshop.nl will return the deposit to Renter, after inspection of the Instrument and no defects have been assessed;
Two (2) weeks before the rental period of three (3) months expires, Renter will receive an invoice for the new rental period of three (3) months.

All damages to the Instrument caused by Renter, will be charged to Renter after return of the Instrument to Strijkinstrumentenshop.nl, unless Renter purchased the "All Risk" insurance package. If Strijkinstrumentenshop.nl and Renter cannot reach agreement on a damage, an independent instrument expert will be engaged, whereby the judgement of the independent instrument expert will be binding on both parties. Small damages, wear and tear during normal use such as broken strings, excessive hair loss of the bow, shall be borne by Renter, unless Renter purchased the "All Risk" insurance package.

Replacement of two (2) strings and one (1) bow per year are covered by the All Risk insurance package. Replacements over and above the aforementioned numbers, are for the account of Renter.
Upon termination of the agreement by Renter, Renter shall ensure that the Instrument will be returned to Strijkinstrumentenshop.nl in The Hague, on or before the last day of the rental period that is expiring, unless agreed otherwise in writing with Strijkinstrumentenshop.nl. Any shipping costs related to the return of the Instrument to Strijkinstrumentenshop.nl shall be bared by Renter.
