Booking a disco

All Events UK often gets calls and emails from

people that have been let down.

To help you book a reputable disco and someone that wont let you down here are a few tips. The first and main thing is to get a few quotes in from a few suppliers and not from one source but use different sources. If you use facebook then also go on the internet and have a quick search for a few discos. Once you have found a few you like get some quotes in form different discos. ideally get as many quotes as you can so you get an idea of price ranges and whats on offer. Always look at what is offered including the free extras or any add- ons that costs more money.By now you will have an idea of price and what offered. DO NOT book on price alone but if someone is a little too cheap ask why they are cheaper than everyone else. Alternatively if someone is a little more expensive ask them why they are so expensive. Any event supplier you talk to will be able to explain the pricing structure.

Customer reviews.

Any one can post text saying how good they are from ‘Bob and Sarahs wedding’ but how do you know they are true? Simply ask the supplier if they have anything to back up these 5* reviews and ratings. have a look at the sites these reviews come from and see if they are a genuine review website. facebook is the easiest website for fake reviews as anyone can ask friends or family to leave them a review so a new business with no work can get 100 reviews almost instantly. Facebook is also an easy way to check reviews as you can check out the history of a business within a few minutes. Most businesses will regularly post updates/pictures on a facebook business page so reviews can be matched up with various jobs. If a business has 100 reviews but has only posted from 10 different jobs then alarm bells should ring. At All events we have photo albums from every job so all our reviews can be matched to a photo album so not only do you check the review is genuine but you can see pictures from the party. Websites can play an important part in booking a DJ as websites have to be registered and paid for the name and the hosting of the website. The website details can be easily checked online and how long the website has been active.

PLI and PAT certificates

PLI (public liability insurance) is something every business should have. PAT (portable appliance test) certificate although not a legal requirement is something else any business that uses electrical equipment should also have for safety. Always ask for these as most people will be able to email you a copy immediately. If they cant send you a copy you need to be aware if they are working legally. Also most venues do ask for these certificates and if there is a problem the venue can refuse to allow the disco or any supplier into the venue.

The DJ and the Disco set up.

Most wedding DJ’s will encourage you to meet a few DJ’s for a meeting and discuss  the big day. Some do and some dont but if you feel you want to have a meeting then you need to sit down for a chat with any potential DJ’s. Always try to have a chat with a few and not just one and have questions ready to ask. You need to ask the basics: What happens if you break down on the day? What happens if your equipment fails or breaks on the night? What happens if you ill or in hospital on the day? Do you take requests? Can we give you a playlist? How many weddings have you done? These are all important questions and if you have any doubts then just walk away. Do not be forced into booking because ‘dates are going quick’ or its a ‘deal that wont last long’….Dont be fooled or tricked into booking on the spot. At All Events UK we can assure all customers on all these points and we have been running events for 15 years for large corporate companies aswell as private customers.
