Frequently Asked Questions

This page contains the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about mobile disco hire. If you don’t see your question below, please contact me for a personal response.

How much does a mobile DJ cost?

Charges for my services vary depending on several factors including the date and time of your event, the location of the event and any specific requirements you may have. My mobile DJ services may not be the cheapest that you can find, but I pride myself on providing highly professional services that are worth paying for.

For bespoke pricing for your event, please contact me and request a quote for my services.

Do you provide a booking confirmation for your services?

Yes, I always provide all of my clients with a contract confirming the details of your event, any special requirements and my terms and conditions. This contract is signed to give you full peace of mind about anything disco-related.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance?

Yes, my mobile disco is fully covered by public liability insurance up to £10,000,000. Copies of my insurance certificates can be provided to you or your event venue upon request.

How much time do you need to set up?

I can set up most events within an hour. However, in some cases, I may need to allow extra time to move my equipment into place. I don’t charge extra in this scenario, however, additional time will be required for setting up.

This includes, but is not limited to:

A similar amount of time will be needed at the end of the event to allow me to dismantle and remove my equipment.

Can I request my favourite songs?

Of course, this is your party and the music should reflect your personality. I carry an extensive music library with tracks from the 1950s right up to current hits so I can make sure that the music is just right for your event and guest list.

When your booking is confirmed you can specify your general music preferences, and you will also be given access to my online music request system. This allows you to request any favourites and those special songs that will make your event memorable.

Is your disco equipment safe and well-maintained?

Yes, all of my sound and light equipment is PAT-tested (Portable Appliance Test) annually and maintained regularly. Certificates of electrical appliance testing can be provided to you or your event venue for viewing upon request.

Will your equipment fit in a small venue?

A small venue will be no problem. I have a full range of disco equipment and can tailor my lighting and sound equipment to suit the space available.

Can I hold my disco in a marquee?

Yes, I can provide a disco for your event if it is being held in a marquee. I require 2 x 13 amp sockets to power my disco equipment and if a generator is being used, it needs to have a minimum output of 3kVA and an AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator).

How can I pay for your services?

A £50 non-refundable retainer is required when your signed contract is received. I can accept payment online via credit or debit card or bank transfer.

The payment of the balance due must be made 14 days before the date of your event.

What is your cancellation policy?

What areas do you cover?

The areas I cover include Wiltshire, North-East Somerset and the Bath area.
