2. Venues & Event Setup

• Can we arrange a meeting at the venue?

First meetings always take place at our offices or over the phone, where we can discuss your event ideas and you can receive a free quotation. Once a booking has been confirmed we can then meet at your venue to plan your event in more detail, we also recommend a final meeting at your venue 12 weeks prior to your event date.

• Do I need to contact the venue myself to find out set up times?

We will have a rough idea of set up times during the planning process of your event, however on the week of your event we will contact your venue to find out exactly when we can get in and set up, we will also contact you to make you aware of this.

• What time do you come back after the event to collect?

Our collections are generally the next morning or after the event on the night but if you require a different collection time this can be organised during the planning process.

• Do you have a fitting service?

Yes, our fitting service includes delivery to your venue, set up of everything on your order and collecting it all in a suitable time after the event. Along with this, we have our dry hire service, which is a cheaper alternative where the customer collects the stocks from us a day or a couple of days before their event and returns it after the event.

• On a dry hire service do you have to wash the stock before returning?

Nope, we will do all the washing! Please bring back all the stock on the agreed date after your event and we will do the rest.

• When can we collect our dry hire?

If you have opted for our dry hire service you’re welcome to collect your stock a day or two before your event, however, if you need it earlier than this please make us aware during the booking process.

All our products are wrapped up securely in our warehouse, however, if there was something specific you wanted to see, then please let us know and we can send over a variety of photos of this product.

• Are your dance floors wired or wireless?

Our starlit dance floors are wired and LED illuminated designed for indoor use. We only stock wired dance floors purely because wired dance floors are much more reliable than wireless. By using a wired system we can lay the dance floors on uneven surfaces and be confident that the whole floor will work all night long.

• Do you supply balloons?

Unfortunately we no longer supply balloons; we sold this side of the business at the start of 2016.
