Set up and pack up of the photo booth takes place outside the rental time. Set up takes approximately 15 minutes whilst pack up and removal takes approximately 30 minutes. We will arrive at the venue and start setting up 30 minutes before the booking time. If set up or removal is required earlier or later than the time you booked idle time may apply ($50 per hour). A survey of the event location may be required if Melbourne Made Photo Booths does not believe the available space is suitable. This survey may incur an additional fee of $50. The client is responsible for paying any charges imposed by the venue or required to access the venue. These charges may include, but are not limited to, parking and electricity.
There must be parking available for our company vehicle, any associated costs will need to be met by the client. There must also be easy access to access and egress for our staff. Additional costs may be incurred should the attendant not have easy access to the venue.

Date changes will result in a $50.00 change fee. All cancellations will result in the client forfeiting the deposit. However, if Melbourne Made Photo Booths is notified of cancellation more than 30 days before the event a credit to the value of the deposit will be provided, to use for any future booking made within 6 months of the date of cancellation. Cancellations made within 30 days of the event date will result in the client forfeiting all payments made to Melbourne Made Photo Booths. The only exception is the bond, which will be returned to the client within 5 business days after the date of cancellation. Melbourne Made Photo Booths can cancel any booking at any time. If Melbourne Made Photo Booths decides to cancel a booking, all payments made will be refunded to the client.
Damage to equipment
In order to prevent damage to equipment, Melbourne Made Photo Booths reserves the right to deny service to any person. If circumstances arise where a threat or implied threat of harm, damage or violence is posed to Melbourne Made Photo Booths’ staff or equipment, we reserve the right to cease providing services. If the client is able to resolve the situation within 20 minutes Melbourne Made Photo Booths will resume services.

This will be deducted from the client’s bond (If Applicable). The client is liable for extra costs if the cost to repair/replace is more than the bond.
