Terms & Conditions
During your time at Archway Depot we ask you to respect the fact that the building contains other businesses whose staff, we feel, have been working in silence for several decades. We don’t expect you to be as quiet as church mice, but thrashing out death metal to ease your passage through the day may disrupt our neighbours and would therefore be frowned upon.
Arrival & Departure:
The building’s reception desk is manned from 7:00am to 6:00pm Monday to Friday. The entry phone is located to the right of the main gates as you face the building. Use this method of entry whether entering on foot or with your vehicle.
Delivery and prop trucks will be guided to the goods lift and you can back right up to load / unload.
Once unloaded please move vehicles from the car park unless you have arranged parking for that day.
Please inform the studio manager when you are leaving at the end of each day. This is a commercial space and we accept a certain amount of wear and tear. However the cost of unnecessary damage may be added to your bill and a walk round will avoid any tricky situations later on.
Deliveries and collections:
Props, lighting etc. are to be delivered on the day of the shoot unless previously agreed with Archway Depot. Please contact us direct if you wish to store props or equipment overnight at the location. If we can accommodate you, we will.
Parking and travel:
There are two parking spaces available at Archway House; please contact the studio manager to check availability and prices. There is also paid street parking, via mobile phone, right outside on Elthorne Road. The location is very conveniently located for local transport links, please see here for more information.
We provide a complimentary breakfast, and tea, coffee and fresh fruit are available throughout the day. Archway Depot is located close to plenty of shops, cafes and fast food outlets and we can point you in the right direction for anything you might need. With sufficient notice we can also arrange catering for you and your crew.
Please use the black bin bags provided, and use the bins located in the car park. Separate bins are marked for general waste and recycling.
Terms & Conditions:
Unless otherwise agreed with the studio manager, a deposit of 50% is payable on confirmation of your booking, with the remainder to be payable at the start of the shoot.
Any queries concerning invoices should be raised at the time and any rebates will be dealt with equally promptly.
Overdue accounts are charged at 5.5% interest per month, plus a 5% handing fee of the outstanding amount.
All rates are quoted per day, a day being 9:00 to 18:00 or 8:00 to 17:00 Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays). Overtime will be recharged at an hourly rate equivalent to 20 percent of the day rate, unless agreed otherwise.
Please inform us as soon as possible if you need to cancel your confirmed booking because, if we are able to re-book your studio, we will do our best to save you money. However please be aware that we reserve the right to charge 50 percent of the booking fee, plus all associated recharges, for any cancellation up to 48 hours prior to 9:00am on the first of your booked dates. We reserve the right to charge the full booking fee plus all associated recharges for any cancellation less than 48 hours prior to 9:00am on the first of your booked dates.
We cannot be held responsible for loss or damage to equipment or valuables or personal injuries incurred during your time at Archway Depot and you should have appropriate insurance (public liability of £5 million) in place at the appropriate time.
This booking agreement does not constitute a tenancy agreement and the location’s directors will retain full and exclusive possession at all times.
The formality of the above should not hide the fact that we’re delighted that you’ve chosen Archway House from the wide range of locations available. We will endeavour to resolve any problems in a sensible and human way, however please sign and date below to confirm your agreement with our terms and conditions and please kindly make your team aware of our rules and terms.
