Renting a 360 photo booth for a party is a big expense, so make sure you're working with a reputable company that will deliver a high-quality product. Before paying your deposit, take these steps to ensure a good time is had by all.
- Read reviews. You'll learn about what your experience will be like based on past user experience. Avoid anyone who has a sub-par product, has unfriendly staff, or doesn't follow through on their contracts.
- Look for licenses and insurance. Confirm that the companies you're considering have pertinent business licenses and liability insurance. This will protect you and your guests in case of an accident.
- Find the right financial fit. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Quality equipment is an investment, so anyone with lowball prices may be operating a photo booth that isn't as fancy as you might desire.
- Look for the features you love. If you just want a classic photo booth that prints out black-and-white strips, keep it simple. If you want a high-tech photo booth with all the bells and whistles, you can have that, too. Just keep in mind that, usually, the more features offered, the more the rental will cost.
- Sign a contract. You don't want your dream wedding photo booth not to show and leave you with no recourse. Get it all in writing, including hours and cost.
- Have an attendant. Even self-operating photo booths run best with an informed technician on hand to troubleshoot any problems and keep things running smoothly. Most operations offer this service.
- Are prints included? Find out whether your rate includes prints, and whether that's a finite or unlimited number of prints.
