By signing below, Renter accepts and agrees to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, whether or not Renter has read them. NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and promises hereinafter set forth, the parties hereto agree as follows:
Reservations and Payment
All studio rental charges are payable in advance at the time the reservation is made via credit card or business check (no personal checks). The studio is not considered reserved until payment and signed rental contract are received. Renter agrees to pay the Company's studio rental pricing which is in effect at the time of reservation.
Rental periods are prearranged at the time of booking. Renter’s rental time begins promptly at the designated starting time and ends promptly at the designated ending time. Rental time must include set up, break-down, and clean up. Studio must be cleaned and vacated by the end of the rental period. No prior drop-off and/or pick-up after completion of shoot, of equipment, props, etc. unless negotiated at time of the rental contract, and additional fees may apply. There is a 15 min grace period for overtime after which fees will accrue at the applicable rental rate, billed in hourly increments.
Company's cancellation policy is based on a five business-day workweek: Monday through Friday. Therefore, canceling a Monday reservation by the prior Thursday morning would be considered 2 business days.
