There is a
$20.00 fee if you need me to use my equipment
at a site with
power. This fee may be waived at my option.
There is a
$35.00 fee if you need me to use my equipment
at a site without
power. The equipment uses a LOT of batteries.
note about using portable equipment outdoors:
I do a lot
of camping and take my music with me. There are some conditions
when CD players just won't work. In my experience, this
is usually due to extreme humidity, and especially bad when there is heavy rain, dew or fog.
I will make
every effort to insure that all equipment is maintained
and in good working order when I leave my home, and
is transported safely. All batteries will be tested and/or replaced prior to your ceremony.
I cannot guarantee
the functionality of any equipment under open air (pavilions,
gazebos, etc.) and/or harsh conditions.
There is a
non-refundable $15.00 equipment setup fee included in the equipment fee. If for any reason my equipment fails to function, a refund of monies in excess of the setup fee shall be due.
