Inflatable / October 10, 2018 / Zurie Chandonnet
These are a step above the event rentals but with the same basic concept. Instead of renting inflatables and choosing some employees to man them this company targets specific carnivals fairs and public events like the California State Fair. They set up a permanent location at these events pop up a large inflatable and people purchase tickets to enjoy the inflatable area for a certain period of time. For this company the wear and tear on the inflatables is less sporadic and more of a full time concern. However they make a constant stream of money during the events unlike the one-day rental options.
A manufacturing company that is known to have a very detailed and helpful owners manual is Magic Jump Inc. located out of Burbank CA USA. Once you are educated in the setup and takedown process you should now focus on the product and how to operate it for a real party occasion. First and foremost before you take the inflatable to any party it must be thoroughly checked to see if there are any damages that should be patched or repaired. Damaged products should NEVER be rented out since they can easily cause damage to participants. Now it is time to deliver and actually setup the moonwalk.
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.
