LENGTH OF USE & ASSOCIATED FEES

Rental periods are pre-arranged at the time the Booking is created. There is a one-hour minimum for all studio rentals.  Private Studio and Specialty Package Customers may arrive up to 15 minutes early for check-in and set up. Customer’s rental time begins promptly at the designated Booking start time and ends promptly at the designated Booking end time. Time includes check-in, set-up and break-down. No prior drop-off of Customer's equipment or props before the Booking period begins or pick-up after the Booking period is allowed unless such additional time is agreed to by Company and paid for prior to the beginning of the Booking start time. Because Company has a set, back to back rental schedule, if Customer is late, the actual arrival time of Customer does not change the Booking start time. Therefore, if Customer arrives later than the Booking start time, the start time nor the end time will be changed to accommodate the time Customer is late. Customer will lose the time in which they were late as if it were used. If there is no booking immediately following and the schedule allows for more time, Company may allow the addition of time to make up for the lost time at an additional cost, but Company makes no guarantee for such opportunity.

 

Customer is responsible for monitoring the use of time and making necessary actions to clean-up and vacate the Premises. If Customer does not vacate Premises at the designated Booking end time a late fee will be charged. The late fee is calculated by how many minutes past the Booking end time that Customer vacates the Premises. The late fee is $5 per minute for every minute past the original Booking ending time, which includes a 5-minute grace period. The card on file will be charged the late fee the following day. For example, if Customer holds a 1-hour studio Booking that begins at 10:00 AM and Customer leaves at 11:15 AM. Customer will be charged a late fee of $50 (10 minutes past the grace period at $5 per minute).

CLEANING & TRASH
Customer agrees to leave the Premises and all contents, fixtures, furnishings, equipment, amenities, and props in the same condition and place as they were when Customer arrived. Premises must be cleaned and vacated by the original scheduled Booking end time. Company will dispose of trash collected in the supplied disposal bins. All items brought to Premises by Customer are to be removed by Customer. Large amounts of garbage left for Company to dispose of due to large sets may accrue additional costs. If Customer does not return Premises to the order and cleanliness found when Customer arrived, Company will charge at minimum a $50 cleaning fee. 

DAMAGE & THEFT

Customer is responsible for any damage to the Premises during the Booking time including, but not limited to spills, scratches, excessive wear, marks, or stains on equipment, props, amenities, fixtures, floors, or painted surfaces. If Customer takes an item from the studio without authorization and does not return the item, it will be assumed the item is stolen and a replacement fee will be charged. Such fees are based on the actual cost associated (in time and material) in order to fix or replace damaged/stolen item up to $950. Company will provide Customer with an itemized statement of charges for damage and/or stolen items charged. If Customer notices a damaged, non-working item during the Booking time, Customer shall inform the on-site Company representative immediately.
