Disco & DJ Hire -10 questions you need to ask your DJ before booking.
When you hire a disco and DJ service for your event it's much more than just trying to find the cheapest deal.
Very often we are just asked, “Hi, how much do you charge please?” A really good wedding DJ for example may cost upwards of £400. Some more, and some considerably less, however, do not make the mistake of booking on price alone.
There is a lot more work goes in to the preparation than just the DJ'ing. There are also costs such as music subscriptions, insurance, running costs of websites and vehicles and the purchase and maintenance of equipment.
With all that in mind we have put together our top 10 questions you need to be asking before booking your evening entertainment supplier.
1. Are you PAT tested and do you have PLI?
PAT testing stands for Portable Appliance Testing and it means all electrical equipment has been checked and tested in the last year and the DJ should have a certificate to prove it.
PLI is Public Liability Insurance. The venue should have their own but the DJ should also have it in their own right. Without these a venue may turn your DJ away.
