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.
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.
Next you should tightly secure the blower(s) to the inflatable tube(s) and close any other inflation tubes. Now you should check to see if the location has an electricity outlet with a GFI box. Refer back to the blower manufacturers owners manual to check the correct electricity requirements extension cord type generator information etc. Now once the electricity requirements have been satisfied you can inflatable the product. After the product is fully inflated you will need to fasten all of the tie downs using the correct required stakes to anchor the inflatable into position.
The DVD Ant Farm has directions for creating your personal inflatables using plastic bags and an iron. The low technological barrier to building inflatables is additional lowered by DIY instruction sets like the Inflatocookbook. The inflatable party rentals industry is relatively premature when compared to other industries for party equipment and supplies rental. For instance there is no authoritative bounce house safety organization to control the inflatable rental industry. The top safety regulatory organizations are the states which designate the safety rules for that particular area and if there are no such rules then they follow those set by the ASTM.
