TERMS & CONDITIONS

BOOKINGS & REFUNDS

When booking Midlands Wedding DJ both parties enter a binding agreement/contract where we commit to supplying services for an agreed fee and you our client agree to pay a R5, 000.00 non-refundable booking and admin fee payment confirming that we deliver on that commitment with the balance of payment due 2 weeks before your event. This is your commitment to attending the event as laid out on our quotation and subsequent acceptance thereof (Date, Venue, Package)

If you have paid the quoted package amount in full and subsequently wish to cancel the booking, we will refund the difference between the amount that was paid and the non-refundable R5, 000.00 booking and admin fee.

Should you wish to postpone your booking date with us, the new date needs to be notified in writing. This will be confirmed if the new date is available. Refunds will only be considered as mentioned above should the new date not be available. There is no additional charge for a date change.

These initial funds are used in various ways to manage our business, along the lines of salaries, marketing, administration, training, vehicles, music licenses, streaming licenses, music procurement, equipment upkeep and procurement (speakers, lights, laptops, controllers, mixers, effects systems, cables, stands, etc)

Without the above in place, it would compromise our ability to execute all the events that are booked with Midlands Wedding DJ.

The balance of payment is mainly dispersed to your DJ and expenses on the date of the event.

This binding agreement/ contract works both ways. If we were not to arrive on the agreed date and supply our services as per the booking invoice we would be in breach and you the client would have grounds for financial recourse. (This has never happened in 20+ years of trading and our business has capacity and backup systems in place.)

Overtime applies after Midnight, unless otherwise stated on the quotation and will be charged at a rate of R1, 500.00 per hour (or any part thereof). Overtime is to be paid in CASH to your DJ on the night, or via early EFT payment by pre-arrangement with Midlands Wedding DJ.

ABUSE OF DJ AND ASSOCIATED STAFF
Should any person attending the event abuse the DJ or associated staff in any way, be it physically, verbally or other, we reserve the right to and may decide to immediately terminate thr rendering of services. Should this clause apply, no refunds will be considered.

Should any DJ equipment be in danger at any time for whatever reason during the event, we reserve the right to terminate or amend the rendering of services. This due to the fact that the client remains responsible for all equipment at the venue.

Should the abuse clause be implemented, the DJ reserves the right to claim remuneration based on the actual number of hours worked or the minimum number of hours (whichever is the greater value) including any other expenses incurred.

Please note that the abuse clause will only be considered as a last resort when all available avenues have been considered with no amicable outcome.
