Photo booths are rapidly becoming a popular attraction at weddings in Orlando. This has led to many companies offering photo booth rentals, giving consumers a better range of products and services to choose from and the ability to shop around for the best price. Having many companies provide a similar service does come with some drawbacks, however. The main one is that it makes it harder to spot the difference between an honest company and one that engages in business practices that many would find unethical.
Anyone thinking of renting a photo booth from a vendor in Orlando should do a bit of research to find one offering a product suited for their needs at a reasonable price. Promotions or low prices shouldn’t be used as the sole deciding factors, as some companies are only able to offer cheap prices by neglecting product quality and customer service.
A good way to decide on a vendor is to contact 3 to 5 of them and ask them a few questions to see whether they’re a company that can be trusted.
One can start by asking how long they’ve been in business for and whether they can provide references. A solid record of satisfied clients going back for many years is a sign that they’re reliable and here to stay. Nobody wants to hire a trendy new startup, only to find out that they’ve gone out of business a few days before the wedding.
Asking where their offices are located, whether they’re fully licensed and insured and whether they provide written contracts should be done to ensure that the photo booth provide is actually a professional outfit. It also minimizes potential problems with the venue, as many require that each vendor carry liability insurance.
Next, consumers should inquire about the equipment used. Serious companies will always use professional cameras and dye sublimation printers designed to deliver the same quality of prints that photo labs use. Anyone caring about quality should avoid vendors using consumer grade cameras and ink jet printers, even those marketed as “photo quality,” as their prints just don’t measure up to professional equipment.
As different companies offer various packages, details should be obtained as to what exactly they include and whether they are any fees on top of the package price. Any honest company will have no problem telling their customers what the total cost would be and what they’re getting for their money.
Finally, it is always wise to ask whether the vendor makes a back up plan in case a problem occurs. While choosing a company familiar with the venue can minimize potential issues, it is a lot more important for the rental provider to have back up equipment available at all times, as well as an attendant at the event who can quickly call a technician for help if needed.
