Wellington DJ hire as a full service mobile DJ entertainment business based in Wellington. We specialize in weddings, corporate functions, private parties, birthday parties, and nightclub work. We offer a range of different party  lighting and sound equipment for hire.


Terms & Conditions

Free delivery and set up applies only to orders of $200 or over

We provide free delivery throughout the greater Wellington area (south of Pukerua Bay and Upper Hutt).

When we deliver or collect goods, especially in the CBD on a Friday night it is the hirer's responsibility to ensure that there is parking available and reasonable access to and from the venue.

Upon delivery or when you uplift goods directly from Capital City Sounds, we will demonstrate how to operate the equipment.  It is at this point in time that the equipment will also be shown and deemed to be in good working order and suitable to be used as intended.   

Hire Period:

The hire period is over night. In general terms this will mean that we deliver, or you uplift the equipment at an agreed time between the hours of mid to late afternoon on the day of the hire.   Returns or collection is before 12 noon the next day. However, we can accommodate alternative hire periods, but they will need to be agreed between Capital City Sounds and the hirer. 

Equipment Returned:

All equipment is checked at the end of each hire to ensure that it is in perfect working order before hired out to the next customer.

It is agreed that at the end of each hire Capital City Sounds will be given a reasonable time frame to inspect the equipment for damage and to notify the customer with regards to any claim of damage that may be placed.

The window of time for this assessment is as follows:

a)    After the hire period has expired

b)    Before the equipment is rehired to the next customer

Should a claim of damage be placed by Capital City Sounds following this assessment it is agreed that it is on the hirer to show the loss or destruction was not caused by their misuse or negligence.

Equipment must be returned at the agreed time before 12 noon the next day in clean condition otherwise a cleaning fee maybe applicable.

Loss or Damage of Equipment:

All goods remain the sole property of Capital City Sounds, or its representatives, and the hirer shall be responsible for any loss or damage sustained, within the hire period, and up till the time all goods are returned The hirer shall be responsible for the cost of repairing any equipment damage and liable for the replacement cost in the event of theft or damage beyond economic repair.  You agree that we have a right of access to the equipment in order to inspect, repair or replace it and you authorise us to enter any property where the equipment is located or where we reasonably believe it to be located, to carry out such inspection, repair or replacement.

Examples of Misuse:

- Swinging the karaoke microphone on the lead attached to it will destroy the lead in no time at all, that’s if you don’t hit a piece of furniture or something else and destroy that or the microphone first.

- Karaoke song books with cigarette holes burnt though the pages.

- Pages taken out of the books and used as notepads. 

- Alcohol, candle wax spilt over books and or equipment

Sound Advice: 

Despite the best of engineering, the selection of the best drivers and the most careful production and quality control loudspeakers can still fail - why? The number one reason is misuse, caused by excessive power causing the speaker to blow.

The first reason for speaker failure is the most obvious: playing any speaker at excessive levels can damage it. For example, loudspeakers can easily reproduce the real dynamic range of live acoustic music; but no high quality speakers can reproduce the brutal levels of a heavy metal rock concert.

To guard against clipping, keep your volume and base control below "twelve o'clock" on the dial.  At this level the sound will still be more than you need.

If you like we can demonstrate this when we deliver and set up the equipment.

In my experience it’s only people who have consumed too much alcohol and are stupefied that insist on winding up the base and volume controls to the max or excessive levels - Don’t Let Them Do It - because they can blow the speakers and may also damage the amplifier. 

RISK: Damage to Property and/or Person:

The customer agrees that no liability will be accepted by the owner and hereby indemnifies Capital City Sounds against any claims which may arise from any person/s. 

with regards to any injury or damage arising from the use of the equipment or the premises where the equipment is used. The risk in the equipment will pass to you upon delivery, or installation, or, when you uplift the equipment directly (at the moment of uplift).


Cancellation fees will only be charged if we are unable to rehire the equipment or if we have turned down bookings to accommodate your hire.  (We may provide a waver depending on the circumstances).

a) 72 - 96 hours before start of hire period – 25% of hire charge.

b) 48 - 72 hours before start of hire period – 50% of hire charge.

c) 24 - 48 hours before start of hire period – 75% of hire charge.

d) Less than 24 hours before start of hire period – 100% hire charge.


Our policy on refunds is that RockBox Party Hire will refund all monies if the equipment is proven to be faulty and being so, was unable to be used as intended.

No refunds will be payable if equipment was damaged by misuse or shifted from agreed placement.

The customer undertakes NOT TO SHIFT OR REMOVE the equipment after installation.


We accept payment by cash, direct credit or cheque.

Payment is required when the equipment is delivered or when you uplift the goods or at another time, but only if arranged prior to delivery and if Capital City Sounds choose to agree.  The hirer acknowledges they shall be responsible for all costs relating to collection of any outstanding charges in relation to this agreement.

Interest will accrue from the date of the invoice in any amount outstanding by the rate of 1.5% per month.

Acceptance of Terms & Conditions:

If, for any reason, the customer has not acknowledged these terms and conditions  by accepting the equipment for hire from Capital City Sounds the customer will have deemed to have accepted the terms and conditions of hire.
