Idle hours is time before or after an event when the booth is set up and attended but not in use. This generally occurs in situations where we can not set up the booth immediately before being used or where we can not pack the booth away immediately after use.
Q: What are idle hours?
A: Idle hours are deemed as any hours before or after the event where a booth is required, but will not be in operation. Sometimes it not always possible to set up or take down the photo booth directly before or after an event. For example, if the booth needs setting up at 5pm but can only start running from 7pm, this would be charged at 2 idle hours on top of the hire costs. Idle hours are charged at £30 per hour.
Q: How long do you take to set up and dismantle the booth? Is this included in the hire price?
A: All time required for setup is included free of charge and is not included in your hire time. We normally allow one hour to set up the photo booth, although it can be done in less time, and we can dismantle the booth in about 30 minutes. However, it does depend on where the booth is situated in the venue, every job is different. The hiring time begins from when you start using the photo booth.

Q: How big is the actual photo booth? Will it take up a lot of space?
A: The Voxbox Booth is visually cool enough to be the center of attention at any event, but slim enough to fit in even the smallest living room chips n' salsa party. We require a floor space of three metres by four metres which will be enough for the footprint of the photo booth and allow space for people to gather around. We also need easy access to a standard electrical power socket. The booth must be on a firm surface, so if your event is in a marquee or similar, a suitable base will be required.

A: Yes, our photo booth has curtain sides and can fit approximately 4 to 5 adults. It's standard measurements are 2.1 metres in length x 1.2 metres wide x 2 metres high. It is intended to be used by guests in either a standing or sitting position. The camera height has some adjustment and if we are notified prior to the event we may be able to accommodate wheelchair users.

A: Yes, we always provide an attendant at each event to make sure that you and your guests are properly taken care of. They are on hand to answer questions, assist in the use of the photo booth and to generally make sure that everything runs smoothly. You don't only hire a booth from us, you also hire a complete service.
Q: Can we personalise our prints?
A: Yes! You can customise the prints with your name, company logo, reason for the party, or just a picture of a rabbit wearing a hat, it's up to you. You will need to provide us with either an artwork file or the desired message.
Q: We have a themed party and we want to get creative with the booth. Is it okay to add our own props and backdrops?

Q: Do we need an internet connection on the night of the event for the Facebook sharing option?
A: Yes, for instant Facebook uploads at your event you will need an internet connection at your venue. If an internet connection is not available at your venue then we will upload your photos to Facebook the next working day after the event.
Q: What is the Guest Book and how does it work?
