You don’t have to visit us in person to be served by our shop. We are pleased to ship instruments and bows for trial purposes. We pay the shipping charges to you and you are responsible for the return charges. Return shipping must be by the same class of service (e.g. ground or air).
Please purchase return insurance coverage of $1000 if the value of the return shipment is equal to or greater than this amount. If the value of the return shipment is less than $1000, please purchase insurance coverage equal to the values being shipped. Please click here for Shipping instructions on how to pack up your instrument or bow.
If you have any questions concerning the shipping of instruments or bows for trial, repair, appraisal, or for other reasons, please contact Paul Sauey, Shipping Manager.
Introducing a safe and convenient way to ship your bow for a rehair!
Givens Violins is proud to introduce a new bow shipping box. A safe and convenient way to ship your bow for a rehair! We have custom crafted our new bow box to allow for ease of use and protection of the bows. Givens Violins has a full service repair shop which is staffed by five professionally trained and experienced violin makers and includes a full-time bow specialist.
Each box includes instructions for packing and is designed to ship up to two bows at a time – no bow case necessary. Also, feel free to download the Instructions flyer.
Get started today by contacting Claire Givens Violins at 612.375.0708 or firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase your re-usable bow box – only $20 plus shipping. We are grateful to our colleague Jerry Pasewicz of Triangle Strings for sharing his time-tested, carefully thought-out design for our new shipping bow box.
