Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve attempted to cover all bases here, however, I’m sure that there’s the odd question that will crop up that we haven’t covered, so please feel free to contact us if you can’t find your answer below.
Can we brand the Booth or Change the colour?
The standard colour of the photobooth skins are finished in Glossy Black.
We have the facility to brand your booth with your logo, promotional message or theme (Please contact us for a quotation).
A free branding opportunity we offer is to include your Logo or Promotional Message onto every print produced in the booth, this can be via a logo, message or your contact information on the bottom of each print or via a themed background.
Can you set up earlier in the day?
Providing we have daytime availability, yes, although there will be a small additional waiting time charge to cover the additional time on site between set up and the booth hire starting.
Our team are trained and briefed to set up with the minimum of disruption at events and parties, taking care not to make any unnecessary noise of commotion during the installation of the photo booth.
Do you have Insurance?
Yes, we have £5 million Public Liability Insurance & £10 million of Employers Liability Insurance. All our equipment is Portable Appliance Tested annually and we have full safety documents available including risk assessments & method statements.
Do you look after the booth?
Yes, we provide a member of staff to oversee the activity, and ensure the activity is run safely and smoothly.
How Do We Book You?
The PhotoBooth People is a trading style of Edge Entertainment Consultants Ltd, a company that was started in 1995. The Edge are full members of the Agents Association of Great Britain..
All our bookings are contracted via The Edge’s booking system, which gives you a legally binding contract to confirm the booking, so you know that your booking is safe with us, one of the benefits of booking with an agency is that if there were a problem with the booking and were unable to attend, we’re duty bound to help provide a suitable replacement at no additional charge.
No Deposit Required
Yes, we know that sounds a bit weird, as nearly every other supplier in the events industry asks for a deposit at the time of booking… There’s two reasons why we don’t need to do this.
- In the quieter months of the year, many event suppliers, rely on the income generated by deposits to allow them to keep trading during the quieter times of the year.
- The contracts that we issued are legally binding documents, which basically agree that we will provide a service, and you will provide an event for us to provide our service at, and pay the agreed fee for that service. The contracts protect both us and you, as if there were to be cancelled then a fee can be charged (cancellation fee) or if we failed to provide the service, you could ask for any money that you have paid back from us. As with all contracts, there are reasons when a contract becomes null and void, such as force majure (this can be something that’s totally unforeseen, act of god, flood, terrorist attack, road accident etc etc).
If you have any questions at all please do make contact with our team.
How long is a standard booking?
A standard booking for our photobooths is a hire up to 4hrs in duration. If you’re looking for a longer period of time for your hire, please let us know and we’ll be happy to send a quote for you.
How long will it take to set up and clear away?
Once we have unloaded our van and made it to the set up area, the set up process will take approximately 45mins… however, we like to allow 60-90mins to set up, this allows us to take our time and not rush the set up.
We should point out that the set up time doesn’t come out of your hire time. The set up time is in addition to the duration of your hire period.
At the end of your event, it will take 30mins – 45mins to pack down, and leave the venue.
How much space do you need?
The dimensions of the photobooth itself are 2.2m wide x 1.2m deep x 2.05m high.
The space that we need to set up and run the booth is an area 2.7m wide, 3m deep x 2.1m high.
We need a 13amp mains socket within 20m of the set up area.
