Can I get equipment delivered to the studios before the shoot?

We are able to store kit for you overnight in our locked rooms or safety lockers (smaller items). These are locked at your own risk but will be very secure through several locked doors, barred windows, a locked business park gate with CCTV security.

You may finish your shoot and wish kit to be collected in the morning too. This is fine and we can arrange storage. Larger items may need some notice so it doesn’t affect the following days’ booking (set dressing, tables chairs etc!)

Just contact us to arrange in advance.

We typically allow some time for wrapping and packing away (around 30minutes – 6.30pm-ish) We are flexible and we stay in contact with you through the day. You may wish for an hour or more overtime and the end of your shoot. The rates start at £60 ph for Studio 2 and £80 PH for Studio 1. Visit our rate card page for more information.
