Frequently Asked Questions – Photo Booth Hire


DELIVERY AND ASSISTANCE

When do you deliver and collect the photo booth?

If your booking is for no more than 8 hours, the photo booth will be delivered approximately an hour before the booking starts and collected directly after it. If you would like the photo booth to be delivered earlier, we recommend that you choose the WHOLE-DAY package. For the bookings of up to 8 hours it is possible to do an early set up. However, this may be subject to availability and/or extra fee. If your booking is for more than 8 hours, we will deliver and collect the photo booth at arranged times. This must be confirmed with the venue/organizer.

Are there any additional costs of delivery?

We offer BASIC, PREMIUM and WHOLE-DAY packages in the radius of up to 50km from Brussels free of charge, whereas the PREMIUM package photo booth will be delivered everywhere in Belgium with no additional fee.

We also deliver our photo booths to France, Luxembourg, Netherlands and Germany, provided that are no further than 100 kilometres from the nearest Belgian border. Please note, that there is an additional delivery fee depending on the country and distance.
