Inflatable / October 10, 2018 / Zurie Chandonnet
If youve owned one of the older cheaper style inflatable boats you know you also have to invest in repair patches or a roll of duct tape. New high quality inflatable kayaks are changing peoples impressions of inflatable boats. New inflatable crafts are made from puncture and abrasion resistant rubber often reinforced with polyester fabric. This is much stronger than the PVC material used for most cheap inflatable boats. Under normal circumstances it is quite unlikely that you would puncture these new rubber materials. Even if you did most inflatable kayaks have at least three separate air chambers.
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.
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.
