We are asked about charitable donations, free services and charitable prices on a daily basis and so we have put tother this page to respond to this Frequently Asked Question.
We operate a caring, supportive service born out of the love for what we do and also the love of working and helping people. However IG Stage Hire only exists if it can make money and operate as a business. We are a law abiding, business whom operate all events/services through 'the books' as VAT is a lawful requirement if VAT registered. After all we have to pay our warehouse rent, pay our staff, bills, insurance, VAT, vehicles, corporation taxes and this is all before considering the many thousands we've spent on equipment. This being said, our pricing is honest and reflects the value of the service provided.
IG Stage Hire therefore cannot offer free services.
Many of our events are in fact charity events and these function because they have sought sponsorship from either larger corporations (paid for advertisement) or from local government schemes or other similar methods such as lottery grants.
However, to support events IG Stage Hire may choose at their own discretion to offer multiple day discounts, bundle deals or % off offers at various times in the year on lighting and sound packages. Stage packages are set as priced throughout the year.
IG Stage Hire has a vision that one day in the future when the business has reached a certain level it will be able to give back even more to selected charities in the form of a ground breaking initiatives, similar to that of Innocent Drinks or entrepreneurs like Bill Gates.
Thank you for respecting our vision.
