Inflatable / February 13, 2019 / Esperanza Langlais
Inflatable balloons are available as hot air balloons cold air balloons and helium balloons. This type of inflatables can also be customized according to the advertiser and marketers likings. These inflatable balloons offer a cost-effective way of taking your brand into a higher degree of popularity. These advertising balloons are beneficial in making use of the free space around your booth or establishment. Im sure youve heard the saying "You get what you pay for." Well that statement could not be truer when it comes to buying your Inflatables! In the long run buying strictly on price alone can turn out to be the most expensive mistake you can ever make! Before you spend your hard-earned money on an inferior imported Inflatable ask yourself how long you want your new Inflatables to last! Once upon a time all Inflatable Play Structures were made either in the United States or the United Kingdom where they were first invented over 40 years ago.
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.
Paying a little more for your Inflatables can save you a lot of money in the long run not to mention a whole lot of aggravation and lost customers! Buying the cheapest Inflatables can many times turn out to be a very expensive mistake. You should ask yourself how much in lost rental revenue you will incur if that bargain Inflatable falls apart in a few months right in the middle of your busy season. A lot more than you might think. And good luck trying to get it fixed in less than a month or two. (Especially if it has to be shipped back to China for repairs.) During that time you would have lost 10-15 rentals multiplied by your average rental rate which could cost you as much as Two Thousand Dollars or more each time your China Inflatable is out for repair.
