Inflatable / February 14, 2019 / Laetitia Beauchesne.
The next option requires a slightly bigger operation. It is the full-time event inflatables rental company for personal or business use. This inflatable company type requires you and a group of employees (or family members) to run events such as church VBS groups corporate picnics and kids events school carnivals and other such happenings. The process is similar to that of the backyard rental company except you can buy bigger and better inflatables. Ive seen these companies have everything from a giant slide to a full-scale bouncy obstacle course. Of course these events must be manned by a staff of inflatable operators to make each even possible which means employees and a different tax bracket. Also you will need vehicles to haul the heavy inflatables equipment to maintain them and process repairs advertising and marketing efforts in your area and a lot more time than a weekend or two a month. Next there are the pay-for-play companies.
Once all anchors are fastened and the inflatable is fully inflated the delivery person can now check to make sure that wires are not causing a tripping hazard there are no sharp objects protruding near or on the inflatable there are no overhead power lines and so forth. Making sure every precautions are taken to ensure safety. Most often than not an injury will occur when a delivery person gets too careless about setting up the inflatable and doesnt follow all the safety steps. Inflatable products should never be used during certain weather conditions. Winds over 20-25 miles per hour can cause the inflatable to move or if the speed is high enough to make it airborne.
Inflatables should also never be used during rain or thunderstorm. Playing in an inflatable during a rain or when it is wet can create the surface to be extremely slippery and thus lead to a participant injury. Also you dont want to use the inflatables when the weather is extremely hot. Inflatables can get pretty hot especially during the summer heat and thus cause heat stroke or worse. Since inflatables take a lot of energy out of participants it is vital to keep participants hydrated so they do not experience dehydration or heat stroke. The person renting the inflatable should ALWAYS be trained and instructed how the inflatable works so there is no confusion about the functionality and how its supposed to perform.
And what you choose will depend upon how much time you have whether you want this to supplement your income or be your income whether you have a useable indoor space and how much money you want to put into this concept being a success. If you want to get involved in the inflatables business and see how it goes I recommend starting small with a backyard rental company and working your way up. That way you can see how the inflatables will hold up and whether a company is truly a good investment for your family. Inflatables are now rapidly taking the advertising world by storm. It is definitely the most innovative and even effective outdoor advertising techniques there is.
