Equipment

4.2 All sizes quoted are approximate

Site Location, Facilities & Conduct
5.1 Hired equipment will be set up in one location only as agreed on arrival and will not be moved once unloaded.
5.2 You are responsible for ensuring we have access to the event venue and to appropriate facilities, including, without limit, by arranging, in good time and at your own expense, all permits, licenses or other permissions necessary to enable us to gain access to the venue and perform the services.
5.3  The Photo booth is designed for indoor use only. The Taxi Booth is suitable for both and clear access must be provided to remove the vehicle after the hire period is complete.
5.4 We require a floor space of two metres by three metres which will be enough for the footprint of the photo booth and allow space for people to gather around. This must be within two to three metres of a single standard electrical power socket.
5.6 The Photo booth can only be situated on a firm flat surface, so if your event is in a marquee or similar temporary structure, a suitable base will be required. Our standard price assumes clear access at ground floor level.
5.7 We normally allow two hours to set up the photo booth, although it can be done in less time, and we can dismantle the booth in approximately 1 hour. However, it does depend on where the booth is situated in the venue – every job is different.
5.8 If you are hiring the venue in which the Madbooths equipment will be used please also allow plenty of time within the period of hire to allow for these set-up and take-away elements of the service and for us to check the equipment with you before we leave to ensure the equipment is in the state in which it was first supplied
5.9  Madbooths reserve the right to refuse delivery if the venue or site is deemed to be unsuitable by our delivery personnel or if the client has failed to notify the company of any delivery obstructions such as stairs or excessive loading distances from our vehicle to the installation site. In such a case no refund will be given and the full hire fee will be due.
5.10 The client is responsible for ensuring that suitable security and crowd control measures are in place prior to start of event.

Liability & Insurance
6.1 The company’s liability insurance covers use of the equipment only whilst booked on ‘wet’ hire (supervised by a representative of the company).
6.2 The client agrees to indemnify the company for any damage or theft of the company’s equipment whilst on hire.
6.3 The company accept no liability for any damage or loss of personal property and or any injury arising from the use of the hired equipment.
