Inflatable / February 17, 2019 / Esperanza Langlais
But as with most things in life things change. In the last five years most U.S. "manufacturers" have thrown in the towel and are no longer making their own Inflatables. Theyre now importing China made Inflatables and passing them off as "Made in the U.S.A." In addition a new breed of internet phonies are posing as "manufacturers" and selling "China made Inflatables" or acting as a distributor for some other inflatable company importing from China. The fact of the matter is there are only a few manufacturers left that still build their entire product line of Inflatables right here in the good old U.S.A. Its more expensive but far superior in durability. And yes in spite of what you have been told there is a big difference in Safety Quality Craftsmanship.
Advantage No.3: Large Loading Capacity Due to the designs of large buoyancy tubes the loading of inflatable boats could be huge. Together with the stable attribution inflatable boats just could upload a large loading of cargo or person without any unsteadiness. For example Sea Eagle 12.6 SR a runabout boat with exterior dimension 126" x 54" just can be loaded with as much as 6 adults or 1600lbs. Inflatable boats just give a higher loading capacity. Advantage No.4: Inflatable Boats Light As Air Although the loading capacity of inflatable boats is huge that doesnt mean inflatable boats are heavy.
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.
