Should you purchase liability insurance 4 your photo booth rental?

I’ve been in the wedding business a very long time and I’ve yet to hear any photobooths needing a liability insurance claim. But who knows truth is actually stranger than fiction sometimes.  If you are going to rent an older historical venue for your wedding reception be aware that competitors that rent out the vintage booths that literally weight 700 pounds can cause damage to delicate wood or marble floors.  Makes sure the company you rent from has a standard one million dollar liability coverage so if anything does go wrong you can’t be held...

Photo-Me USA is sold due to poor performance

Photo-Me shares surge on sale of US vending unit Mon Jul 21, 2008 5:43am EDT LONDON, July 21 (Reuters) – Britain’s Photo-Me International (PHTM.L: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) added more than ten percent to its market value on Monday, after it sold its loss-making U.S. vending business. Photo-Me, which operates about 21,000 photo booths in railway stations, airports and shopping centres, said the sale of Auto Photo Systems Inc and its unit, Photo-Me USA LLC., would yield a small exceptional profit. Photo-Me shares gained 13 percent to 13.25 pence at 0928 GMT, valuing the entire firm at about 48 million pounds. No financial details were provided, but Photo-Me said the U.S. business, which operated 250 photobooths, or about 1 percent of its group total, made a pre-tax loss of 700,000 pounds ($1.39 million) on revenues of 1.2 million pounds in the fiscal year just ended. Jean-Claude Perrottey, a former employee of Photo-Me, bought the business, the company said. “The USA has always been a limited market for ID photography and US vending has tended to be loss-making in recent years,” Photo-Me said in the statement. “The disposal is part of Photo-Me’s strategy to divest of small, remote and loss-making businesses and to focus on development and diversification of its well-established businesses. “The USA remains an important market for Photo-Me’s equipment sales activities.” (Reporting by Hsu Chuang Khoo; Editing by David Cowell)  This is pretty significant news in the photobooth world. I wonder what will happen to those 250 booths out there?  Maybe they will have some good deals on close out photo booths for...
