Màirèad Nesbitt Celtic Violin Collection does not charge any restocking fee. We will inform you via email when we have received your shipment.  We will refund 100% of the purchase price after having received the returned violin within 14 days of receipt if the violin is in the exact same shape as you received it. You will be reimbursed via the method you chose for your payment.  You will not be refunded for shipping.

Returning an instrument to Máiréad Nesbitt Celtic Violin Collection

In returning the instrument, please pack it carefully — preferably just as we sent it to you (remember to keep your packaging) — and send it to our address with a copy of the original invoice via your carrier of choice, it is not necessary to ship via DHL, UPS or FedEx express mail – normal postal airmail services are available at reasonable cost.   Please just make sure it is a service that provides a tracking number for your records.  Màirèad Nesbitt Celtic Violin Collection cannot accept postage-due or COD shipments because of the high additional cost. Once we have received or collected the instrument from the customs, we will send you written confirmation and will transfer the sum to your account within 14 days.
*30 day trial and return period on violins only. Does not apply to accessories.
