Rates

The rate system has been established based on industry standards and logistical workflow. Each property will be designated an individualized rate per project reflective of the various production or event needs. There are costs within the rate that incorporate property maintenance, storage of resources, electricity usage, on-set moderator fees and other project-specific expenses.

Clients will be subjected to contractual caveats that will affect budget, some of which include:

  • Deposit: A deposit is requested seven days prior to production or event start date on top of standard compensation and returned upon completion of production or event pending damage and miscellaneous costs accrued.
  • Overtime: Costs will be added systematically should the client accumulate any over time on top of the designated timeline.
  • Cancellation: A cancellation fee will be applied up to seven days prior to production or event start date.
  • Damage: Client will be notified of any damage costs up to seven days after completion of production or event.
