Do you rent harps? If so, how does your rental program work?
All of our new and some of our used lever harps are available for rental through our rent-to-own program. After an initial four month rental period, you can choose to either return the harp or continue to rent on a month to month basis, with the majority of your monthly rental payment applied directly to the purchase of the harp. If you choose to purchase the harp within the first eight months, 100% of your rental payments will apply directly to the purchase of the harp.
Our rent-to-own program includes a generous trade-up policy that allows you to trade your lever harp in for a bigger lever harp within the first year with no financial penalty, and allows you to receive a 90% credit for the cash price of your lever harp towards the purchase of a pedal harp within the first five years.
We offer some pedal harps for short-term rental. Please call us for more information about pedal harp rentals.
What if I want to upgrade from a lever harp to a pedal harp?
All lever harps purchased through thee Atlanta Harp Center are eligible to be traded in towards the purchase of a new pedal harp for up to 90% of the purchase price within five years of the date of purchase.
Full trade-in value is subject to inspection. Structural and cosmetic damage may reduce the trade-in allowance. Certain other restrictions may apply.
Do you ship harps?
Yes. Our pedal harps are expertly packaged and shipped nationally with either ALG, ABF freight, or other national carriers. Smaller harps may use a different carrier depending on the size of the harp. We recommend the harps be insured through the shipping company or with outside instrument insurance prior to shipping. The cost of delivery will vary depending on the size of harp and destination. Harp shipping costs range from $200-500 depending on weight and travel distance; please contact us for a more accurate quote. Transit time will be approximately 7 business days to most locations.
