Inflatable / January 17, 2019 / Iva Gabriaux
New Jersey and Pennsylvania are the toughest states to have an inflatable rental company but they are leading the way on safe operation of inflatable products. This article will discuss some of the latest safety practices that will ensure a damage and injury free party rental. Inflatables have different names such as bounce houses jumpers moonwalks moon bounces and so forth and are used interchangeably in this article. Every jumper rental company and operator should start off with reading the manufacturers owners manual the day they receive their inflatable products.
This will make the renter more knowledgeable about the situation and also be able to supervise the participants. There should always be a responsible adult supervising the inflatable and the participants using it. The adult attendant should make sure the participants are not breaking any manufacturer-designated rules. It is always a good idea to open up your inflatable product when you receive it from the manufacturer and test it out yourself. The best way to gain experience on delivery and safety is to experience the product yourself and study what potential safety hazards there can be and work from there.
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.
