Inflatable / September 28, 2018 / Searlait Bureau.
This type of inflatable company is easy to operate but is designed for small-scale growth. For instance renting an inflatable to a household for a childs birthday party typically only happens on weekends and the largest inflatable you can buy is one that fits nicely into a large backyard. Bouncers are the most popular inflatables to buy in this situation and ball pits are a secondary choice. Since this type of business only functions on the weekends and holidays (for the most part) this is a good investment for families who are looking to make a little extra money part time.
Then you have to drive to a road accessible ocean lake or river. Next you have to awkwardly carry your hard-shell kayak to the water. Hopefully the water isnt too far from where you had to park your vehicle. With an inflatable kayak you simply fold the deflated kayak into a backpack and you can go anywhere. Most inflatable kayaks are less than forty pounds in weight and some are even less than thirty pounds. They also fold up very compact once deflated. Transporting them in the back of your car is no problem at all. Then think of all the mountain trails you can take your inflatable kayak to.
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.
The few hundred dollars you thought you were saving when you bought your China Inflatable has now turned your "Great Deal" into the most expensive Inflatable youve ever purchased! Most of the Inflatable Manufacturers take the easy way out by giving away American jobs and going the cheap route by making our products overseas. And while it would be much more profitable to do so You would pay the price in the form of inferior quality of raw materials and substandard workmanship. You cannot control Safety Quality and Production Times if your products are being made a world away. Most of the US Inflatable Manufacturers start cutting corners by buying cheap vinyl inexpensive thread and single stitching. They cut corners on many exclusive safety features to save even more money. They do not have product liability insurance and so you are left to battle it out yourself in case of an accident for defective products. Before you make the decision on who youre going to buy from you should ask all the right questions then consider all the facts features and benefits of doing business with each company youre comparing and resist the temptation to buy on price alone. Like a trusted advisor once told me "A smart investment is one you still feel good about many years down the road."
