Recently we had an issue with a studio hirer – Ravi Maisuria who booked a studio with us and then ‘forgot’ to pay his invoice. When he arrived for his booking, Ravi and his group ‘forgot’ to bring cash and in good faith we allowed them to use the studios with the agreement that they would pay the next day. Despite several phone calls and promises from Ravi – they have still not paid for their booking.
Because of this experience we are now strictly enforcing prepaid studio hire for bookings.
The new studio hire process will look like this:
1. Book your studio
2. Receive the following documents:
invoice for booking
invoice for key hire (if applicable)
studio hire agreement (first hire only)
key holder agreement (if applicable)
3. Sign agreements and scan copies back to the studio along with a copy of your Passport or Driver’s Licence
4. Pay invoice and send evidence of payment to us (if booking is within 48 hours of payment)
Once we have received all of the documents and payment you will receive an email notifying you of confirmation of your booking. Until you have received that email – your booking is not confirmed.
NB: All studio hirers are required to sign a Studio Hire Agreement and provide photo ID. Because this is a legally binding document we can not hire a studio to anyone under the age of 18 without parental consent.
If you are interested in hiring a studio space from us we have permanent and casual times available. Please contact Aroha on
Phone: 09-379 9944
Address: Level 1-2, 260 Queen Street Auckland
Reception hours are limited so an email is the best way to contact her. Please include in your email which studio you are interested, the day(s) and the time(s) you would like to book.
We are located just above McDonald’s – across the street from Mid City Arcade. Enter through the McDonald’s foyer and use the glass door on the left to access our studios.
Please note that a minimum of 24 hours notice is required for a full refund of any studio hires paid and cancelled. Inside this time frame is at the studios discretion.
