What should you look for when hiring a DJ for your special occasion? How can you be sure that you are hiring the right DJ who understands exactly what you want? Get it wrong, and you put the success of your event at risk.
Since I founded Essex DJs, I have discovered that there can be a massive difference in the quality of DJs available for hire. Sometimes what you ask for is not necessarily what you get! With 10 years of experience in booking DJs, I know that it is important to listen to my customers, many of whom have never booked a DJ before, so that I can book the right DJ who will meet the needs of their event.
I suppose I have become a quality filter, separating the good DJs from the bad. Before considering hiring any DJ, I carry out a number of checks including interviewing them, checking their equipment, ensuring that they have the right insurance and, most importantly, I go and see them in action at one of their shows!
Of course there are DJs offering their services at very cheap prices but at what cost to your event? Many of these DJs try to minimise their costs and will therefore use low quality equipment which can result in inferior sound quality. Equipment is often poorly maintained and can be unreliable as a result. In most cases they don’t have any backup so if their main equipment fails on the night, your event will be severely affected. They are also likely to be without any Public Liability Insurance, Employers Liability Insurance and a PAT certificate.
We believe that you deserve a DJ who cares about the outcome of your event; one that will go that extra mile to make sure that your special occasion is a complete success. By listening to our customers and learning along the way, Essex DJs has a top quality team of DJs who are motivated, reliable and friendly with a vast amount of experience playing at weddings and other party events.
A DJ cannot join Essex DJs unless they are a member of the South Eastern Discotheque Association. By being a member it means each DJ automatically have £10 Million public liability insurance and employer’s liability insurance specifically tailored to DJs. We also believe that by joining our association, it means that the DJ is serious about doing this job to a high standard and we expect only the highest standards from our members. The association runs regular training and development seminars about how we can improve and do our job better. We learn about all kinds of subjects to help us to give you, the customer, the best possible service.
When you book with Essex DJs you book a company with over 10 years experience of providing quality DJs for all kinds of events. We really do care about the success of your special occasion and that is the price of quality!
