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.
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.
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.
