We design all of our own photo booths and products here at Camera Cabtastic. We do this simply because we want to offer original and entertaining photo booths to our clients. As a rule, we want our products to be at the unique and exclusive end of the photo booth hire market. Also every time we look to buy in a ready made photo booth, they are never quite right for our needs.
We are a little different to many firms that may offer photo booths for sale. When we design a booth, it is first and foremost for us to hire out to our clients. It has to be right; it has to be something there will be a demand for, it has to be fun, robust and importantly is has to be quick to set up and remove. We build the product for our own successful hire business first.
Our builds fall into two categories. The very niche bespoke one of items like the taxi photo booths, which we build in house at our own workshops. The more technically elaborate and complex products, where we bring in specialist production companies to realise our designs.
For the more specialist units, we have relationships with UK and international manufacturers and international logistics companies. When we embark on these projects, we will do a small production run. When we say small, we mean small. A run may just be a handful of units each time, which we will sell to cover testing and development costs.
As we mentioned above, our aim is to be at the niche and exclusive end of the photo booth hire market. So, if we develop a product our hire clients want, flooding the market with units would only risk our hire business. This is best seen with the Magic Mirror booths. Personally, we love the Magic Mirror idea, but now there are just so many out and the hire rates are depressed as a result. Equally a lot of clients don't want to hire the same product they have seen at the last 4 events they have been invited too.
When it comes to photo booths, a great product is only great all the time few others are offering it. If it is being produced and sold to operators in the hundreds, then you will struggle to make a living hiring it out. To give an example the SPL-W above only 6 examples currently exist and they are spread from across the UK. To date we have never lost a booking of our own, because a client sourced the same device elsewhere. You can see from the hire page on this site we operate this product and the hire rate we charge.
If you are interested in any of our products, please don't hesitate to contact us.
