*Prices may vary slightly according to the condition of the instrument. Prices above do not include shipping/insurance charges.  Repairs are completed on a first-come, first-serve basis.  It is very important when shipping an instrument in for repairs that you include a note in the box with your contact information (name, address, phone number and email address) as well as the reason you are sending the instrument in.  The package should also be marked "Attn: Repairs" on the outside of the box so that we can quickly receive you package. If we are not notified that the instrument needs to returned in the same package, we may not assume this and use a new box. Please make sure to let us know if the instrument needs to be returned in the box that it arrived in. Since we service a high volume of instruments, failure to comply will most likely cause a delay in the repair of your instrument.  For more information about sending your instrument in for a repair, please contact us at 248-855-0410.

REPAIR WARRANTY
General Adjustments, Repads and Overhauls carry a 90-day warranty. If, within 90 days of completed repair service, any mechanical problems arise, we request to be contacted and the instrument be returned to us. Should the instrument be serviced by technicians outside of Flute World within the 90-day warranty period, this warranty will be voided. Charges incurred on instruments that have been repaired outside of Flute World cannot be reimbursed by Flute World.
