RULES & REGULATIONS

Reservations. A NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of 50% of the total booking price is required for all rentals of 3-hours or more. Payment in full is required to secure rentals of less than 2-hours. Bookings are not considered confirmed until a payment/deposit is secured. Upon payment MSQ will create a reservation on our calendar to hold the client's date and time. The remainder balance will be due 3 days before rental. Photo/Video bookings can be paid on the day of rental.

Non-refundable Deposits: Deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE. If a client pays more than 50% or pays in full, that amount is considered the deposit amount and is NON-REFUNDABLE.

Areas of Use: Your rental is confined to the area booked. If you use an area not booked in your original agreement; you will be responsible for the rental fee of that area.

Length of Use. MSQ requires a minimum booking of 2-hours. Do not arrive late - your rental time begins promptly at the designated starting time and ends promptly at the designated ending time. There will be NO exceptions.
