Our state of Michigan has issued an Executive Order to Shelter-in-Place beginning Tuesday, March 24, at 12:01am, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. This applies to all "non-essential" businesses, including Elderly Instruments, and will last until April 13, 2020. Unfortunately, this will shut down "business as usual" for our Sales, Purchasing, Repair, and Appraisal departments. You can still place orders on our website and we will ship them as soon as we are able. We will be unable to answer the phone, but will do our best to attend to your email or online chat messages (from our own homes).

Please bear with us. We really appreciate your past, present, and future business!

Our wish is for you to take care of yourselves — stay safe and healthy. We’re hopeful that we'll see you again soon. Thank you!
