Inflatable / January 29, 2019 / Tempeste DAvis
Some of these optional rudders just help the kayak track straight. A lot of inflatable kayaks have maneuverability comparable to hard-shell boats. If youve been looking into the inflatables industry and have decided you want to get involved then you should know that you have four main options to choose from. After all inflatables arent just for backyard play rentals anymore. To be a really successful businessperson you will need to choose a specific avenue of operation for your company. I will list these avenues in order of size. Your first option is the basic backyard rental company.
These are a step above the event rentals but with the same basic concept. Instead of renting inflatables and choosing some employees to man them this company targets specific carnivals fairs and public events like the California State Fair. They set up a permanent location at these events pop up a large inflatable and people purchase tickets to enjoy the inflatable area for a certain period of time. For this company the wear and tear on the inflatables is less sporadic and more of a full time concern. However they make a constant stream of money during the events unlike the one-day rental options.
All it requires is a prime location a large indoor space and a series of inflatables to fill the space. Because of its indoor nature these companies dont experience the same problems with sun damage and accidental punctures that outdoor rental companies face. However with constant use comes typical wear and tear so be prepared to have backup inflatables for replacements while used inflatables are patched and repaired. Also the cost of a large enough rental space will be rather high as well as the cost of utilities and maintenance. So as you can see there are four main options if you want to start an inflatables business.
