How Much Does Your Service Cost? (Can You Send Me Your Prices?)
Pricing depends on a number of factors. In order to give a specific price for a project, there are details that we need in order to submit a free quote to you. We take into account things like:
- How many images we shoot and edit
- Whether we shoot and edit a video or not
- What the surrounding area of the property is like (difficulty of flight)
- How much work we have done in the past for you. (We offer volume discounts for ongoing work)
With that said, our pricing starts at $150 and goes up from there depending on the factors above. If you would like a quote for a specific project, be sure to request a free quote from us today!
What Is The Typical Turnaround Time?
Scheduling A Shoot
Our turnaround time varies a small bit based on our current production schedule. Weather affects our schedule as well. We are able to perform rush-jobs when needed. We typically schedule about a week in advance, however, it is worth checking with us to see what our schedule looks like as we may be able to get you in sooner. If you have a tight deadline, we will do everything we can to ensure you meet your deadline.
Getting Your Completed Images and Video Back
Once we have completed shooting, we are generally able to get pictures back to you within 24-48 hours. Videos do take just a little longer, but we are usually able to get those back within 48-72 hours, depending on our current production schedule.
Do I Own The Copyright To My Images And/Or Videos?
Copyright can be extremely confusing and complex. We like to keep things simple. You will have full reproduction rights to use images, videos, etc. in any way that you need. The only thing you are not permitted to do is to re-sell the images, videos, etc. via prints, stock photography websites, etc. We are, however, open to negotiating the terms of your copyright privileges if your needs vary from those outlined above.
Are You Licensed and Insured?
Absolutely! In North Carolina, any drone pilot flying for commercial purposes is required to have two things:
- A Part 107 License from the FAA.
- An NCDOT sUAS designation.
We have both of these, which means all of our flights are completely legal. We also follow our own internal stringent standards to maintain safety and quality during all of our missions.
We are insured up to $10million, depending on the job. We actually purchase insurance per job so insurance coverages can range anywhere from $1million to $10million. We make sure that the coverage we have for your project is enough to cover any potential damages. Also, our own internal stringent standards ensure safety before, during, and after flight. We have put our own parameters in place above and beyond what the FAA and NCDOT require because safety is our number 1 concern. Quality is a close 2nd.
Do You Guarantee Your Work?
Client satisfaction is our utmost priority (behind safety of course.) If you are not 100% blown away with the quality we provide for your project, we will re-shoot at no cost to you until you are satisfied. We believe that you are paying us for a quality service, and that is what we are dedicated to providing.
What Information Do You Need From Me To Get Started?
Each project is completely different, so the more specific you are able to be with your information, the better for us. For the exact information we need, head over to our get a free quote page.
