Rental & Booking Terms

These are the terms and conditions associated with our service. We've made every effort to answer any questions about our service that we offer in this document in a way that is pretty clear and uncomplicated. You might notice that we didn't write this in a bunch of legal jargon. We did that in the hope that you will actually read this so that you know exactly what you're getting! That said, if you're wondering if we offer something that isn't listed here, you can assume that the answer to your question is "no". So, here's what MiniDJ is all about:

MiniDJ is a service that is designed to offer a high-quality, low cost DIY (Do It Yourself) DJ rental equipment for standard sized events and venues. Although our name is MiniDJ, we do NOT provide a live person at your event, we only provide our MiniDJ DIY system which includes equipment and music (and lighting as an option) on a rental basis.

Pricing & Payment
All bookings are on a first-come-first-served basis. In order to reserve a MiniDJ system (whether online or by phone), we require payment in full at the time of reservation. While we do require payment in full at the time of booking, all of our rentals include a no-risk cancellation policy (details below). We accept all major credit cards for payment—no checks, cash, or other forms of payment are accepted.

Add-ons can be reserved at the same time as the MiniDJ rental or anytime thereafter (subject to availability) and payment is due for the add-on at the time the add-on is reserved. For example, if you decide you would like to add-on a lighting package to your MiniDJ system rental a week before your event date, you can check availability, reserve, and pay online (or by phone) and we will add it on to your delivery.
No-Risk Cancellation
We know things happen, which is why we offer a no-risk cancellation policy. If you choose to cancel your reservation, for any reason, just contact us at least three days (72 hours) prior to your reservation date and your payment will be refunded in full. For example, if you have a MiniDJ reservation for Sunday, October 31st and you contact us to cancel your reservation by Thursday, October 28th (or any time before that), we will refund your payment in full. Please note that we must receive your cancellation request in order for it to be valid. Upon refund in full, neither party is entitled to any further refund or damages and this agreement is terminated.

We do our best to service every booking that we receive. If, for some reason, we are unable or unwilling to service your booking, we will notify you in writing via email and will immediately refund your payment in full to your original payment method. Upon refund in full, neither party is entitled to any further refund or damages and this agreement is terminated.
Rental Agreement
Delivery or pickup of the MiniDJ system at the designated reservation date and location constitutes your agreement to be bound by these terms and conditions. “You” refers to the booking party whereas “Us” refers to MiniDJ.
Delivery/Pickup
Our MiniDJ systems include delivery, basic setup (details below), and pickup—with a few restrictions. Upon booking, you will be asked to provide us with a delivery and pickup window as well as your event start and end time. Please provide us with the largest delivery and pickup window possible so that we can service your delivery (e.g. “setup anytime between 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM, event starts at 4:00 PM”). In other words, it is unlikely we will be able to accept a booking if you provide us with a specific time (e.g. “deliver at 9:00 AM”) or very early/late hours. We also request your event start and end time (if known) so we have a hard limit for our delivery and pickup schedule. Please keep in mind that most events occur on one day of the week (i.e. Saturday), so we generally have a very tight delivery schedule on busy days.

We must have access to the delivery location during the time window you provide for delivery and pickup. If we are unable to complete a delivery or pickup because we are unable to access the location, an additional surcharge of $50 (plus additional mileage charge if outside of our standard delivery area) will apply for each additional delivery/pickup attempt. If there are any restrictions or requirements for access, please provide those details at the time of your booking or prior to the delivery. Also, while we are typically able to accommodate late-night pickup requests (e.g. after your event ends), we may need to pickup the equipment the following day. So, please provide availability for both days if possible.

If you picked up the equipment, you must return all equipment to us at the agreed upon time—or within 24 hours if no specific return schedule was set—at the same location as it was picked up, and in the same condition in which it was received. If you do not return equipment within the rental period, you agree to pay a fee equal to your daily rental rate for each day the equipment is late.
Service Area
We service major cities around the midwest as well as smaller surrounding cities. Please ensure that your city is listed in our included delivery area prior to booking. If your city is not specifically listed or unless authorized in writing by us, it will not be eligible for free delivery. However, we may be able to deliver to your area at an additional mileage charge if you contact us in advance. Alternatively, we may offer pickup as an additional option at no additional charge.
Setup
Every MiniDJ rental includes basic setup. In order to complete our setup, you will need to provide the following at the delivery location:

  • A small table, counter, or other area to set the MiniDJ console where you would like it to be located. The console is approximately 24 in. wide by 18 in. deep.
  • A standard 15 or 20 amp grounded electrical outlet (three prongs) no more than 15 feet from the setup location. Please avoid using a power strip as it may trip during your event.
  • Sufficient space to the sides of the table or setup location to place speakers and speaker stands. The speaker stands are a tripod design that takes about 2-3 feet, and the speakers will extend around 4-6 feet in the air.
  • The area should be covered from the elements if used outdoors. The MiniDJ system contains various electronics and must be shielded from rain and snow as well as excessive heat, wind or humidity. Basically, if it’s not comfortable for your guests, it’s probably not good for the MiniDJ system.
DJ
Remember that this is a Do It Yourself service so all of the music selection, playback, and announcements will be handled by you (or whomever you choose to put in charge). We do not provide you with any person to operate the equipment or provide services at your event.
Operation
The MiniDJ system has been designed to be incredibly easy to use and is very intuitive. So, for most people, no training is required at all. Nevertheless, we provide a short tutorial video on our website as well as interactive tutorials built right in to the MiniDJ system should you need any assistance. Please note that our delivery crew is only there to deliver and setup the equipment, they are typically not available to provide training or instructions on using the equipment.
Sound
We think it's important to have a great sound system, so that is exactly what you will receive. Our speakers, amps, and audio gear is professional, high quality equipment so that the music will sound great at your event. However, you should also know that our system is designed for standard sized events and venues. For example, if you're expecting 300+ people at your event, our system isn't going to provide full audio coverage for the entire room. The music will still sound good on the dance floor, but it isn’t designed to fill a large venue with hundreds of people. On the other hand, if you're in a standard sized venue, our system will be as good, if not better, than many DJs.
Music & Playlists
The MiniDJ system comes pre-loaded with thousands of songs, many of which contain lyrics for karaoke. The MiniDJ system is also pre-loaded with a number of great DJ-curated playlists and mixes to help in your music selection. If you have your own device and choose to hook itin to our system, you can do so using the included RCA jacks or via a wireless Bluetooth connection (if available). Of course, we only provide the connection and can't help you run your particular device.
Care of the MiniDJ System
Once we have completed the setup of the MiniDJ system at the location and time you designate (or once you pickup the equipment from us), you shall be exclusively responsible for any damage that may occur to the MiniDJ system until we pickup the MiniDJ system (or until you return it). In the event that we determine that any damage, loss, or other destruction to the MiniDJ system has occurred, you will be responsible for the full costs associated to repair or replace affected equipment including all parts and labor, to be determined by us. By utilizing the MiniDJ system, you agree that it is in working condition. If you contend that there is any damage or non-functioning aspect to the MiniDJ system upon delivery (or pickup), you must immediately notify us upon discovery of the issue or damage.

We provide the MiniDJ system for the sole purpose of providing music for entertainment purposes at private functions (e.g. weddings, birthday parties, etc.). Part of the MiniDJ system includes a library of pre-recorded music. We have provided the aforementioned digital music for the sole purpose of playback of the provided pre-recorded music at venues. Copying, duplicating, recording, or otherwise utilizing the MiniDJ system’s pre-recorded music is strictly prohibited and will subject you to any resulting copyright or intellectual property fines, penalties, or punishment as a result of such action.
