My DJ is taken ill or cannot make it?

 

In the unlikely event this happens I will attempt to find another DJ who can attend.

In the extremly unlikely event that another mobile disco cannot be found you are covered by a legal contract and if I cannot find a replacement in time you will receive a full refund including any deposits made.

 

The Mobile Disco equipment breaks down?

 

I tend to only choose mobile discos who have good quality equipment which is very unlikely to break down. However if it does many DJ's have their own backup solutions, If the equipment breaks down due to no fault of the guests or venue halfway through a night an attempt will be made to source new equipment. Failing that a reasonable partial refund will be made for the time which the DJ did not perform.

 

 

What kind of music do your DJ's play?

 

Whatever you like is the answer to this one. If you want something a bit different, all you need to do is fill in a Song Request Form before your event and we will do our best to get all the tracks you requests. If you have a specialist type of music you wish to be playied on the night please state when requesting a quote as the additional purchase of music can affect a quote.

 

Do your DJ's take guest requests or playlists?

 

I always incourage the completion of a playlist before the night, this is a great help to the DJ in knowing what the audience will expect so preperations can be made.

I reccomend allowing the DJ decision on when the requests should be playied though as they will most probably know when the best time to play them is!

On the night guest requests are always welcome, and your DJ will do his best to fit them in.

 

How can I book a mobile disco?

 

You can book by calling myself - Dave on 07952513696 or by filling in a mobile disco quote request form.

 

 

How do I pay for my DJ?

 

Payments can be made through the Make a payment page by Credit or Debit card*, PayPal, Cheque, Bank Transfer or Cash.

Usually a cash payment is required at the end of the night to the DJ unless requested otherwise.

*Visa / Delta / Electron / MasterCard / Eurocard / Maestro / American Express

 

What do you charge for a mobile dj?

 

Charges vary depending on the date, times, location and duration of your disco and any extras. If you want more information on how a mobile disco is priced visit the mobile disco prices page.

 

Do I need to pay a deposit?

 

In order to secure a booking you will need to pay a deposit, this usually works out roughly about 25% of the total cost of booking or 50, when you receive a quote it will include the deposit required. For your convience you may pay via card, paypal or cheque.

 

Is my booking confirmed with a contract?

 

Yes, all bookings made through UK Party DJ will have a contract, depending on time scales and preference we can either post you a contract or email you the contract.

Will it cost more if I need my mobile disco upstairs?

 

If your party is being held on the first floor there will be no extra charges, we will need to know beforehand so extra time can be allocated for the setup and takedown of equipment.

If your party is being held at a higher level there may however be additional charges for the time taken to carry equipment.

 

Can I meet you before making a booking?

 

Yes, either myself or your DJ can meet you before you book to go through the details.

I welcome any contact via email, telephone or face to face regarding the details of your event.

 

 

How long does it take to set a mobile disco up?

 

This is a tricky one to tell accurately, If It was me and I had to set up for a party of say 200 people and the "stage" was quite close to my parking space I'd say it'd take me an hour. However I would defiantly allow an hour and half to properly check everything is running smoothly first. again it takes me about 30-45 minutes to take down my equipment if the stage is nearby.

This will depend on the amount of equipment required and how each DJ decides to set their equipment up, if you need a more accurate time just ask!

 

Do you need much room for your DJ's setup?

 

Most setups can fit into a space 3x2m however this does depend on which DJ you get and how much equipment they use etc. Please enquire for a more accurate measurement.

 

Is one plug socket enough for a mobile disco?

 

The answer to this depends greatly on the DJ, for myself - I'm using low power LED lighting and providing I only use a couple of 15" speakers one socket is enough although please always allow for 2 close to the mobile disco setup area (within 5m preferred max 10m).

 

Will my DJ have Public Liability Insurance & Portable Appliance Test certificates?

 

If these documents are required they can be provided before the event, if the venue requires these then please let me know beforehand so the DJ can provide the certificates.

 

What will my DJ wear to my party?

 

Dress code is smart casual, if you require the DJ to wear a suit or tux please specify this when making your enquiry.

 

 

Will my mobile disco speakers be loud enough?

 

Yes, when you provide details of how many people will be attending as long as you specify if it is outdoors or a large hall etc I can make sure the DJ you get has a large enough sound system.

 

Is the disco equipment waterproof?

 

To the best of my knowledge - No. If you have a party outside please provide cover for the DJ's equipment if there is a chance of rain.

 

Can I use a smoke machine at my party?

 

If you want to get great effects from the mobile disco lights a smoke machine is essential.

Some venues fitted with "particle detecting" smoke alarms which are the standard ones may be set off by a smoke machine. A small amount of smoke will usually be ok but please check with the venue beforehand to make sure.

 

Is the mobile disco equipment safe?

 

If you require your DJ to provide a certificate proving that the equipment they plan to use for your party is PAT tested then this can be arranged. Please insure you ask for this when making your enquiry.
