Guests Dancing to Music - DJ PricesDJ Prices – Norfolk Suffolk Cambridgeshire & North Essex

This article is aimed at giving prospective clients some guidance and rational on mobile disco and DJ prices and what also to consider when booking a mobile disco for a wedding or party.

DJ Prices – How Much Do You Charge?

This is the number 1 question which clients ask me on initial contact, sometimes without asking me the all important follow-up questions which are much more important. My advice is ask everything you want to ask and then finish off with clarifying the price. You will then have all of the facts to hand to make a clear decision or whether it is right for you.

If you are booking on price alone, that is very risky, and from my experience I would advise against it.

DJ Prices – Very Cheap Spells Double Trouble

We all love a bargain don’t we? I know I do! Be very careful in trying to find the cheapest possible disco. Why do I advise this?

In my experience the number one problem with cheap discos is that they are unreliable, and they frequently let people down. The reason is simply that they usually do not have a professional business approach and cut corners to keep costs down and this usually involves poor outdated equipment, and lack of safety certification and offers the customer little peace of mind. In addition they do on occasions let people down on the offer of a larger fee.

Very Expensive Discos – Be Careful!

Just a word of advice. Be wary of people offering a premium service and charging a high fee for no apparent reason. Quite often extortionate fees won’t provide you with any additional benefits, and usually quite the opposite. DJ Prices should reflect a fair fee for the work which it entails.

True Stories

At the time of writing this article I have just taken a phone call from a distraught Bride who was let down by a DJ from Lowestoft and who has vanished after the bride had paid him in full. I usually receive many similar calls during the year, and the common factor is aways low prices charged by the DJ.

The likely explanation is that they have gone elsewhere for more money – rotten isn’t it?
