Musicians and wannabe musicians may have a cash lending friend at Empire Loan in Providence. Empire Loan’s store at 1271 No. Main St. in Providence is well known for lending people cash for their musical instruments. As a matter of fact, we have become so renowned that we even had to open a guitar store that specializes in every type of guitar from entry level acoustics to rare classic guitars worth thousands of dollars.
Extensive Experience at Evaluating Musical Instruments
The experts at Empire Loan and Empire Guitars have extensive experience at evaluating musical instruments and equipment allowing them to lend customers the maximum amount of money to get them out of a tight spot. Our staff will appraise your instrument or equipment to determine its condition as well as research the secondhand selling price on websites like eBay and Reverb to see what we may be able to offer for a loan or buy. You may also be asked to play it to show it’s in good working condition but to also help prove ownership. This is just one of the ways we try to discourage theft.
All Instruments Are Accepted
It’s not just guitars and amplifiers that Empire offers loans on. We take in wind instruments like trumpets, saxophones, trombones, clarinets and flutes to name just a few. We also offer loans on percussion instruments like drums, congas, cymbals and xylophones, and electronics from amplifiers to DJ equipment. If your not sure if we would take in your musical instruments or equipment, just call and ask.
The goal of the staff at Empire Loan is to lend customers as much as they can, however it’s still based strictly on condition and a percentage of what the item would re-sell for, not what you may have paid for it at retail. Once everything is agreed to, we’ll explain the entire process including terms of the loan. Your item is then stored in our secured storage area where it waits for your return.
No Monthly Payments and No Hassle. It’s That Easy!
When you’re ready to pick it up, just come back in with the ticket and pay off whatever is due on your loan and walk out with you stuff. No monthly payments and no hassle. It’s that easy!
