Location

The first thing you’d want to know is whether or not they service your area. It’s no use finding the rental company you want when you’re up in Manchester, but the area they cover is Dorset. A search term for magic mirror photo booth hire near me or photobooth hire near me will bring up rental companies in your area, or those that at least cover it.

Another thing you’d want to consider is if there are charges incurred for travel. If you’re located in Manchester and the rental company is in Leeds, they may charge an additional fee for the distance they're travelling. The additional charge is usually insignificant, depending on the company, but if you rather not pay any extra fees for travel, then you can use more specific search terms. Photo booth hire Manchester will bring up rental companies located in Manchester, likewise, photobooth hire Liverpool will bring up rental companies in Liverpool.

The Magic Mirror

If you didn’t already know, there’s more than one type of photo booth magic mirror. You have large mirror-style magic mirrors, vintage magic mirrors, selfie magic mirrors and magic mirrors like our heart and oval-shaped magic mirrors. They essentially do the same job, so the one you choose will likely come down to preference. Maybe you prefer the heart-shaped magic mirror for your wedding or the oval-shaped magic mirror with adjustable height as a child’s party photo booth.

Not all magic mirror hire companies offer the same magic mirrors, so make sure to check their website to see which ones they have.

Price

The hire company that people choose will more often than not be decided by price. If you’re on a budget, you may be able to find a standard photo booth hire package with everything you need for relatively cheap, whereas many companies may have cheap prices, but basic addons bring it to a much higher total.

The best thing to do is look for a package that includes everything you’d like to have at your event. It’s a lot easier to calculate with simple charges.

Extras

Beyond the magic mirror photo booth, there are several photo booth extras to consider that can elevate your hire experience. You have extras that may not be included in the standard hire package like onsite photo printing, photography backdrops, greenscreen, memorabilia or inflatable photo booths. All of these extras can make the experience more memorable for your guests. Not all hire companies will offer these options, so depending on which ones may be of interest to you, make sure to ask them if they offer them.

Referrals

When it comes to the service industry, most companies will live or die by their reputations. Any good service is likely to be recommended by someone at one point or the other. It helps significantly with decision making to have people not affiliated with that company speak highly of it, as you can feel more rest assured that you’ll receive good service.

Another thing you can look for to know a company's reputation is its reviews on Facebook and Google company profile. This normally gives a general idea of their level of service and how much experience they have. Many companies will also have gallery photos and videos which will normally demonstrate what magic mirror photo booth hire from them will look like.
