The In-Home Trial shipment consists of product(s) sent to you as a deferred-billing sale. Customers will only be charged for items which they keep and/or which have not been received by FiddlerShop by the return date at the end of the trial period. This return date is calculated to allow for the 14-day trial period, plus shipping times to and from Fiddlershop. Modest extensions of the return date may be arranged by contacting us by phone or e-mail. FiddlerShop will email invoices and all other appropriate sale documents after the purchase has been finalized.

*A credit card authorization is key to ensure payment can be met, like that of making hotel reservations or such

**The customer is held accountable for any damages (nicks or scrapes etc.) that may occur to our product(s) while away from our shop. We can't in good faith sell an instrument as a "new instrument" at our shop if it has visible marks of use or damage
