At no time during discussion, before a deposit is placed, is a potential client committed to the project.
Similarly, for us, we are not able to restrict queries for a particular date. We may have several on-going discussions for a particular date. The first client to place a deposit secures the date and confirmation. A $500 deposit is required to secure a confirmation.
Clients may like for us to go for site visits. Note that each site visit will add $150 to the cost of the project.
