Taxes/Customs Duty if any at the destination have to be paid by the customer. Normally the courier/shipping co will inform the customer in case the shipment is held at the Customs for any reason and in case the customer is required to be present personally to clear the shipment.

We take all necessary care in packing the instrument to ensure that it reaches safe to the customer. Most importantly we also Insure every shipment. In case of an unfortunate event of the instrument getting damaged in transit and is rendered “unusable”(due to major damage) the customer can claim insurance. For this first he/she has to inform us immediately. We will guide the customer regarding the procedure to claim damages from the insurance company. In case of minor damages which can be repaired without much trouble, we will supply the necessary replacement parts and shall email detailed step by step instructions with illustrated pictures to repair the damage. Any musical instrument making involves a lot of pains taking efforts of skilled team of craftsmen which is currently in short supply all around the world. We respect their efforts and hence request our customers to co-operate.

Each and every instrument is thoroughly checked for any defect before we pack it for despatch. We do not wish to supply any faulty instrument intentionally to our customers. In case of an unfortunate event of you receiving any faulty instrument we will either send you a replacement or if the fault is minor and repairable we will send you step by step instructions to correct the instrument. But before we send a replacement we have to establish the fact that the instrument is faulty and hence not usable. For this we categorise instruments in two different categories 1.Acoustic and 2.Electronic. In case of Acoustic Instruments there can issues like minor tuning difference which may classify the instrument as faulty but this problem can be rectified with our joint efforts. In case of Electronic Instruments the instruments are covered by Limited Warranty by the maker of that instrument. In that case the instrument needs to be sent back to us by the customer at his expense. On receipt of the faulty instrument, we shall replace it at no extra cost to the customer.

In case of an unlikely event of Damage in Transit or Receipt of Faulty Instrument HVMI doesn’t refund payment. In case of major damage in transit the payments will be made by the insurance company and in case of a Faulty Instrument a replacement will be sent.
Only in case of an unlikely event of any particular instrument is not in stock or is not likely to make available immediately we shall inform the customer of the approximate period in which the instrument can be made available. If the customer is not willing to wait any further and wishes to cancel the order in that case only HVMI shall refund the payment to the customer else if the customer agrees to the wait till the instrument is made available then HVMI shall retain the payment and deliver the instrument on availability.

All the instruments come with the limited warranty by its manufacturer for a period of 12 months valid in INDIA only. No instrument is sold with International Warranty.
