Annual servicing

  • All instruments and bows must be serviced annually (like an MOT for your car!)
  • Services/general maintenance costs are covered by BMILS (except new strings and bow rehairs)
  • Borrowers must have the log in their Loan Pack completed and signed by the approved luthier undertaking the service/work
  • Any work other than regular cleaning and servicing must be approved in writing and in advance by BMILS
  • Services can be booked directly at BMILS on Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays from 09:00 - 16:00
  • OR with your approved luthier/repairer as discussed at your trial appointment - please ask for invoices to be sent to us

Please get in touch for more information: 01462 420748 |
