Get ready to rent with 1 month free from John Packer

The fantastic John Packer Rental Scheme is offering an extra bonus for the start of the new education year — 1 month free!

  There is an instrument for everyone with the great John Packer rental scheme

John Packer certainly loves its ground breaking rental schemes so much that they are even giving a month free to their customers — and just in time for the start of the new school terms across the country.


It has have something for everyone — whether you're hiring for a child, or an adult wanting to try something new for yourself, this is the perfect opportunity to go rental.

Our brilliant monthly rental scheme starts from only £15 a month, and also allows customers to off-set a maximum of six months' rental payments off the price of the instrument they're hiring.

One month free

However, to make it even better, until the end of October we're giving you an extra month free — so you or your child gets an extra month's practice before deciding whether to purchase, or carry on hiring.
