And what you choose will depend upon how much time you have whether you want this to supplement your income or be your income whether you have a useable indoor space and how much money you want to put into this concept being a success. If you want to get involved in the inflatables business and see how it goes I recommend starting small with a backyard rental company and working your way up. That way you can see how the inflatables will hold up and whether a company is truly a good investment for your family. Inflatables are now rapidly taking the advertising world by storm. It is definitely the most innovative and even effective outdoor advertising techniques there is.
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.
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."
