Mansfield & Ashfield 2020 together we mean business
David and James have come up with a concept that will provide a platform for instrumentalists to register their instruments completely free of charge. David explains how he has managed to turn this concept into a reality: ‘A brief chat with Caroline Cox at the 2020 Christmas breakfast meeting in 2016 about a “bit of an idea” I had been rolling around with my son , has led to the creation of Playchecked Ltd.
Playchecked.com is a secure musical instrument registration service site that was conceived because it is desperately upsetting for musicians when a thief makes off with their instrument. If an instrument is stolen, insurance will replace it, but it won’t be the same as the one that was stolen.
Every player will tell you that no two instruments are the same. By using Playchecked.com users register their instruments by their serial numbers and give each one a status - Owned, For Sale, Stolen or Sold. Anyone buying an instrument can enter a serial number and check its status before buying it. If it has a “stolen” status they can alert the owner as to its whereabouts. If it is “for sale” they know that the sale is legitimate.
As the PlayChecked community grows it is hoped that instruments will become less and less popular targets for thieves as the market for them shrinks, because every instrument will have been Playchecked!
I would like to thank Caroline for putting me in touch with sf-Media where Jamie Fryatt and his team have done a fantastic job creating the site. I also received guidance from Bryan Stopford who put me in touch with Claire Catton at Hopkins. Claire’s expertise with Playchecked’s terms and conditions has been invaluable.
The Playchecked.com concept to reality is a shining example of the 2020 Mansfield business community working together to make things happen! Visit www.playchecked.com to get involved in the online music instrument community and help reduce the risk of theft!
