BrantfordMusic.com Store Policies
How do I know if the item(s) I ordered are in stock?
All products on brantfordmusic.com are in stock! Most of our competitors list entire catalogues of products but have very few in stock. We realize that this can be very frustrating to shoppers but that's not how we roll! Everything in the world is available "special order" but that doesn't help if you want to buy it right now. If you see something you like you can come by, play it, buy it, and take it home today if you wish. None of our competitors can make that claim. Also, if an item sells, it will say "Out of Stock" and once it ships it will no longer appear on our store.
Do I need to create an account?
What types of payments do you accept?
We currently accept VISA, MasterCard and American Express via our online store. In our retail store we also accept Cash and Debit.
When will my credit card be charged?
Your credit card will be charged once you click "Place my order" on the checkout screen. Please review your order, billing and shipping information before you click!
What about sales tax?
All online orders are subject to applicable sales taxes which will be calculated upon checkout. Sales taxes are calculated based on the tax laws of the province or territory of the shipping address.
Can I cancel an order?
We recognize that on occasion an order may need to be changed or cancelled. Please contact us immediately if you need to change or cancel your order. Unfortunately if your order has already shipped we cannot change or cancel your order and it will be subject to our return policy listed below.

Do you have free shipping??
Yes! Almost all orders over $200 before tax ship free. Only a very few large/heavy items that are over $200 do not qualify for free shipping. Pickup in store is an option for these items and can be requested by selecting the "Free Shipping" option at checkout. For orders that do not qualify for free shipping, shipping charges will be applied upon checkout.
